Review of the 2002 GMC Sierra 1500

  • GMC advertising claims Sierra is a "professional grade" truck. With stout engines, roomy cabs and rugged good looks, the Sierra impresses. But the cabin is constructed of rather cheap parts, and we've found fit-and-finish concerns on several Sierras. That doesn't spell "professional grade" to us.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V8-engine selections, numerous configurations, comfy cabins.

  • Cons

    Spotty fit-and-finish concerns, low-grade interior materials.

  • What's New for 2002

    The Sierra C3 gets a name change to Sierra Denali in addition to a trick new four-wheel steering system. On standard Sierras, the previously optional Z85 firm-ride suspension is now standard on all 1500 models for improved handling and towing capacity. Base SL models now include air conditioning while uplevel SLE and SLT models add deep-tinted glass to the standard feature list.
