Pros

Great GMC styling classy not gaudy , quiet comfortable interior, well built and rugged, Plenty of power.

Cons

Very large, a parking space can be a bit cramped, I wish the radio had more features but that's easily fixed. It's a bit on the heavy side at around 6000 lbs

It's A Great Truck, I Love It — It's a great truck overall, it has a little over 40,000 miles on it and hasn't given me a bit of trouble, This is my first new vehicle purchase and when the time comes to buy another truck it will be a GMC

If I Had 24's — The truck is cool and I've had no problems so far built like a chevy so it will last me as long as my last car 10 years maybe more. Its very big and gas milage is not that great but thats cool with me.

Pros

Stylish with a very comfortable ride. Excellent power throughout the entire power band. Also maintains great resale value.

Cons

Poor gas mileage.

Great Ride! — I love just about everything about my truck outside of only one thing, the 2008 Denali only offered 2-wheel or AWD. I really would rather have the choice of AWD, 4-wheel high, or 4-wheel low range. But the truck leaves little else to be desired.

Pros

Great overall truck for the price.

Cons

Annoying noise at 2000 rpm

Great Work Truck — Has an annoying rattling noise at about 2000 rpm. I've heard it could be the catelytic converter cover? Pretty solid truck otherwise. Seems to have plenty of power for a V-6 engine and can hold its own pulling a loaded down 6x10 utility trailer.

Good — I liked the features of the vehicle best. I love the rain sense wipers, they work very well. I like the remote start which is nice in cold weather. As well as the heated seats. The power of the 5.3 is good.

Best Truck On The Market Right Now. This Truck Is Awesome. — I would buy this truck again. Reliability has been excellent and without issue, the truck easily tows my 6,100lb trailer, I'm well satisfied with the build quality, and I'm still complimeted regularly on the truck's appearance. I have no personal reservation in recommending this truck for purchase!

Does Very Well In Western Ny Winter Driving With 4wd — The GMC Sierra is a great truck that hyandles and rides like a car! This is my first ext cab and the extra storage and passenger space is nice. The 5.3 v8 with 4r speed auto got 20.5 mpg going from Rochester, nY to Carlotte, NC and back in its first major trip. I also got agreat deal on this 2009 leftover. A great value in full size trucks!
