Buying economical coverage for a GMC Sierra doesn’t take a lot of effort, but it relies on a whole bunch of rating criteria such as how you use your Sierra, your residence address, and any prior driving offenses you have. Drivers pay on average $969 a year to insure their Sierra, but that is an estimate calculated using a 50-year-old single female driver with full comprehensive and collision coverage and $500 deductibles.
When estimating a car insurance rate like we just did, the issue is that you are not 50 and maybe not even a female, maybe you are married instead of single, and you need different coverage limits than the sample rates. Having just a slight change in policy rating criteria or coverages could end up with a large change in the cost of insurance.
Different coverage needs are the reason why the best way to find the cheapest coverage for your GMC is to just take the time to compare rates yourself.
The trim level of your GMC tends to have a direct effect on the coverage cost, so the price you will pay to insure a Sierra SLE Regular Cab 2WD trim level will be $156 lower than the cost to insure the more well-appointed Sierra Denali Crew Cab 4WD version, as shown in the table below.

Shop around and save
Henderson auto insurance rates are influenced by many factors that can increase the price you pay. Turning one year older, buying another vehicle, or getting a speeding ticket can produce rate changes that may make certain companies cheaper than competitors. And not only may your rating factors change, but insurance companies modify pricing every year or even multiple times each year in order to remain profitable. Heavy losses can cause more expensive prices, while lower claim levels may result in more affordable Sierra insurance rates.
The chart below shows which company has the cheapest car insurance in Henderson, NV for a 45-year-old female driver with a clean driving record, no accidents, and a high credit rating. If we compare prices based on her personal profile, Travelers may have the best car insurance rates in Henderson at $1,484 annually. This is $90 less than the average premium paid by Nevada drivers of $1,574. Allied, Capital, Oregon Mutual, and Progressive are also on the list of the cheapest Henderson, NV auto insurance companies.
The example below compares rates after we give the driver from above an accident surcharge, slightly worse credit, and an imperfect driving record. Due to the fact that every auto insurer has a proprietary formula for establishing rates, comparing prices most likely will result in a significantly different list of companies as shown below.
GEICO now has the lowest price on auto insurance in Henderson, NV with USAA, Safeco, Nationwide, and Allied now being in the top five. This shows why Henderson drivers need to shop around to get affordable car insurance rates for a GMC Sierra. Rates are calculated by many factors and change dramatically, so the best company three years ago may now not even be in the top five.
