Review of the 2004 GMC Sierra 1500

  • Powerful drivetrains, classic exterior styling and unique options make the Sierra a pickup worth considering, but Fordís new F-150 has it beat when it comes to interior design and overall refinement.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy extended- and crew cab models, strong V8 engines, innovative features.

  • Cons

    Spotty fit and finish, low-grade interior materials.

  • What's New for 2004

    The big news for 2004 is the addition of an all-new light-duty 1500 Crew cab model with a five-and-a-half-foot bed that replaces last year's 1500HD model. The Work truck package is now available on all Sierras, while base models get standard cruise control along with a chrome grille, wheels and bumper. Other changes include newly designed 17-inch wheels on 4WD models, the deletion of the Professional package and a Quadrasteer package that is now available without additional trailering equipment.

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 2dr Regular Cab SLE 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Just turned 100k. Even though this truck has been meticulously maintained and never abused, it has had the transmission replaced (at 67K), sound system (at 25K), intermediate steering shaft (3 times), HVAC controls (at 75K), front rotors (2 times), instrument panel (at 70K), steering wheel control modules replaced (80K), etc. There is so much slop in the drive train that I would never consider using as a tow vehicle. Good for going to the dump and grocery shopping. Limited slip (rear) is demonstrating signs of impending failure, just a matter of time.
