Best Truck On The Market — Great truck. I wish the bed was 6 feet but other than that great power and smooth ride. Like all factory vehicles i needed new tires at 30k. I really like that GMC went to rear drums and removed the rear pads and rotors

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great ride

Cons: small bed

My Sierra Is My Work Truck And It Never Lets Me Down —

The performance is average for a half ton truck. It is powerful enough to pull 2 trailers at a time for work, and I have no problems passing on the highway. I also like the small turning radius. Build quality is good and I have not had any problems but I sense some rattling coming on in the near future due to the tremendous ammount of plastic used inside. Appearance on the outside is bold, clean cut, and in my opinion, visually appealing, but I do believe whoever decided to start using that ugly dulled out matte black plastic on vehicles instead of chrome should be shot in the head! I would love to find some chrome mirror caps and chrome handles! Interior design is nice, and everything is well placed. It came with grey cloth seats but I ordered some wipe clean seat covers from GM since I often get into it with filthy clothes. I just haven't had time to install the rear seat cover yet. My biggest complaint is the interior has far too much plastic! It is truly overwhelming! I would like to find a wood or stainless steel dash kit in the future to add color and take attention away from the plastic! I also find it is amazing on gas! I guess I have the Flex Fuel feature to thank for that! Finally, I do find it fun to drive when I am not hauling and I can actually open it up on the highways. I would most definetley recommend this truck to people! I have not had any problems and I am pretty comfortable saying there won't be for a while judging by my past experiences with GM trucks. Thank you for reading my review. Hope you enjoyed it.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Dependable, strong, lots of power, lots of torque, good looks, and reliable

Cons: Too much goddamn plastic!
