    1997 GMC Sierra C/K 1500 Review
    says:
    305
    Was used as work truck, plowing snow, carrying various cargo, however front suspension and drivetrains did not hold up well under snow plowing use, nice truck for off road or pleasure driving, but not a real good choice for heavy hauling or snow plow.
    Power Ranked 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 worse.
    "Better suspension and tracking."
    Handling Ranked 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 better.
    "The torsion bar system really poorly affects this vehicles capability and work potential."

    Recommended — It was a great truck. 20mpg, from her VORTEC 305. I am ashamed to say I broke it. It was not rated to tow 9,000 lbs 1,500 mi. All in all I would recommend this truck to any one, even if had 300,000 mi.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Exallent

    Cons: Low GWR

    Jacked Up — Performance is great. Interior is like new, Leather burgundy interior, all pwr options, etc. gas milage sucks, but very worth the cost of driving it. It's great off road. It has straight pipes all the way back from the catalytic converters.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Very fun and comfortable

    Cons: Gas milage

    Mike Siraco's 1997 Gmc Sierra 1500 Ext Cab Short Bed Z71 Review — Pros: 5.7 Liter Vortec V8 was a monster, so much torque. The Chevy 350 may not be pretty by any standards, but it's my absolute favorite engine. It sounded beautifully with my 50 series flowmaster mufflers. Z71 package really did good on the dangerous, pothole ridden streets of Massachusetts. This truck isn't rounded off like the next gen Sierra/ Silverados. This truck looks like a f***ing truck. It was my favorite looking vehicle thus far. You felt like you owned the road driving this truck. A 8 foot tall, 4000 lb man could sit comfortably in the front... or in the bed! Cons: 160 miles on a 25 gallon tank. Gas was expensive in 2006-2007. This SUCKED. I would've kept this truck, had i not been working at Target at the time. Many interior pieces just snapped off in due time, mainly the interior drivers side door handle. That sucked. Tailgate was all rusted at the top due to an ugly chrome strip at the top. Passengers did not feel safe in this truck. This truck isn't a good daily driver due to the abysmal gas milage, and it was utterly impossible for me to parallel park. I guess this goes for any truck though. The back seats were uncomfortable for a 4'10 girl. Three doors, wtf? It sucked for whoever had to sit behind me. I traded it for a v6 mn12 1st gen mustang. I'm an asshole.

    Pros: Torque, interior room and comfort, awesome appearance

    Cons: Not a good daily driver; abysmal gas milage and hard to maneuver

    Gmc Truck Heaven — This is the first truck that I have owned, and I would do it all over again. I love the power, the versatility, the stance - everything.

    Pros: I have the heavy-duty towing package with a second battery for trailering/auxiliary

    Cons: I wish I could drop in a hybrid-type of engine for a little better gas mileage, but I'll deal with it for the trade off of power
