Yes, the 2021 GMC Sierra is an excellent work truck that’s full features to enhance its convenience and capabilities. According to Torque News, the Sierra is making it even easier to work from anywhere. 

Just in time for Work From Home Day, GMC offers a complimentary month of in-vehicle Wifi for the first 20,210 drivers that opt-in. This deal is available from June 24th until July 4th. The purpose of this promotion is to encourage more people to get out and explore after the pandemic forced most people to stay home for months. 

GMC noted that 67 percent of remote workers feel that burnout increases during the pandemic, and 53 percent were working longer hours. It was difficult to escape work while at home. But the GMC Sierra will allow people to get outdoors and relax. Take your remote office to a relaxing environment and enjoy the world around you.
