When I ordered in January it was an option on the SLE as long as you got the buckets. However, as someone mentioned once you add leather seating you might as well get the SLT. Not a savings to get SLE with leather.
Guess you guys are right about the leather on the SLE models not being available....except, when you go into the GMC.com specs [ as the last poster mentioned ] it says it's available except with regular cabs on the SLE. All i know is a dealer told me today it was not available on this truck.....rats !
I know in my 2003 They said I couldn't get leather from the factory with the bench seat.. The buckets don't fit me real well, so my only option was to have aftermarket leather installed.. The cost is about a grand.. From what I understand, most all dealers have companies they use to install the leather as an option to the customer..
I'd go aftermarket. Morse is right on price. Heaters extra but remember GM uses vinyl not leather on the back seats but aftermarket is all leather for the same price. I looked seriously at Classic Soft Trim. The dealer would have sent it over to be done and rolled the cost into the financing. http://www.classicsofttrim.com/about.html
I just ordered a new GMC SLE CC 2500HD with leather. The reason I went with the SLE and leather was for the bench. If you order an SLT(LT) you have now choice but buckets, you get heat and passenger power. If you order the SLE(LS) you can have either bench or buckets but no heat or passenger power. Also as far as vinyl goes, standard cab is leather, ex-cab is leather front vinyl back and CC is leather front and back seat.
