1992 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLE 2dr Extended Cab SB
Most of my friends who own mid-to-full size cars say this truck rides smoother and at least as quiet and comfortable inside. They are also amazed at its power. Then I tell them about the 22 mpg avg! It is impressive how well this vehicle comes off the interstate to take steep, rutted gravel and mud right-of-ways without missing a beat. It has been hauling to remote areas in WI, TN, WV, NC, MI, MS, OH and every state in the Southeast providing great comfort inside a classic pickup style. It has been trouble-free with just a new paint job after 12 years necessitated by tarp wear and vandalism - which also required the replacement/upgrade of the audio system.
I like the granny gear, the quiet ride and the hauling ability (weight & mass). It isn't overly sensitive to bumps and bad weather.
Sure things like OnStar, beverage holders and built-in hands-free CB/cell phone that are tied into the sound system would be nice but for when it was built in 1992, this is closer to a luxury than utility vehicle.
