    This Truck Is Everything! — This truck has it all. It is comfortable with plush leather seats and has great features. My favorite is the Bluetooth. Right from my steering wheel I control calls and have a normal conversation while of the phone driving. It's definitely the best. I also love the usb for my ipod. The next best feature is the active control in the engine. I drive pretty easy on it, so using 4 cylinders gets the best mpg I have ever had in any of my trucks, 17mpg!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This truck is awesome!  Has everything you could want, power, towing, comfort. Favorite feature is the usb in the radio and bluetooth that connects my phone.  Great mpg at 17!

    Cons: None I can think of...

    Very Great Truck For Every Day Work.. — Great over all truck and reliable also.. Easy to drive and looks good going down the road. We have taken this on a few road trips and it was very comfortable and fuel economy was over 20 MPG on the freeway.. I also used it to pull a trailer ..I hauled my Jeep and it pulled like a dream..Love the tow haul button with the Alison transmission. I had no issues at all. great Truck for towing heavy loads..

    Pros: Love the looks and styling .. Fuel economy is very good for a truck.. I have the 5.3 and get a average 16 MPG . I like that allot. Radio is easy to use.

    Cons: I do not like the leather seats , wish I would have got cloth.  The tires that came on the truck are hard to keep balanced. The battery lasted only one year.

    Awesome Truck — I've had this truck for 2 1/2 years and have had no mechanical issues of any kind. It has been on long distance road trips and provided us comfort, lots of room, and reliability. I will be buying a new Denali sometime soon.

    Pros: Ride, creature comforts, power and torque, and it often gets compliments...

    Cons: A pig on gas, but you don't buy this kind of truck for fuel efficiency.

    Love It — Been extremely happy with truck so far. No repairs or warranty work. Love the room and looks of it. A little hard on gas - but it is a pick up. Been an excellent vehicle in the snow. Should have got power folding mirrors.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    2011 Gmc Sierra 1500 Extended Cab 4x4 5.3 L — Truck is fine, but fuel mileage is NOT. Window sticker says 21 hwy, but I can't get over 17 mpg driving with a very light foot. Should have leased a Ford Ecoboost and will do that when the lease is up on this GMC.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, Looks, Cargo Capacity

    Cons: Build Quality, F U E L  M I L E A G E ! ! ! !

    4/5 Definitely — Overall a great truck for the price. Not overly expensive to run. Great towing capacity for the size of the size of the motor. Wide range of accessories available which is nice. Great looks and very classy. Wish the back seats had more room.

    Pros: Wide range of accessories available for the truck

    Cons: Gas mileage could be better

    Great Gmc — This truck is great fun to drive! Gas mileage really sucks though. Then again what can you expect from a 5.3 V8. It is a very sturdy truck. It wasnt too expensive, but I got a great deal on it. This is one mean looking truck. Preformance is pretty awsome to.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its big, awsome, and sexy

    Cons: gas

    Great Truck. Powerful Half Ton Towing Machine. — Love this truck. The power is impressive, even when loaded up and towing a trailer. Great exhaust tone from the manufacturer. Seats are comfortable, even with trips in excess of 20 hours. No complaints about power, comfort, handleing, or looks.

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

    Pros: Great power, comfortable bucket seats, aggressive looking, very dependable and capable of all tasks, hauls great. Automatic 4x4 is very smooth.

    Cons: Ext cab is a little tight, but could not get a big enough box with the crew cab. Wind noise is excessive.

    Well Made "do Everything" Vehicle — I didn't like the initial dealer price I paid. I've only owned it for 18 months but don't regret it. It's been reliable and easy to drive and maintain. It does fill up my small driveway and use some gas. However, I can do more with it and make less trips than in a smaller vehicle so it does balance out the overall cost of travel. Also I feel safer driving this kind of vehicle compared to a little put-put car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfortable, quiet,  powerful and agile for its size. Nice factory exhaust rumble when you get on it but not an annoying sound. Economical for a large truck. Interior ergonomics are great. I'd rather put my family in this for crash survivability.

    Cons: Definitely takes up space in small driveways.
