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.

Cracked cylinder heads

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE Rwd SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

This will be my last GMC vehicle. 2004 GMC Sierra with 60,000 miles developed 2 cracked cylinder heads and also need lifters replaced. $3600 repair bill. Called GMC to complain but they didn't care.




'04 sierra

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE Rwd SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

I have enjoyed my truck from day one. Chose the GMC over the Chevy for front end styling. The color is Arrival blue and it has rear disc brakes, neither offered in the next year. The truck has had a few minor problems but it has all been covered by warrenty and the dealer has done a great job getting things fixed.

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE Rwd SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

This vehicle has been a total pleasure to drive. Except for a little wind noise in the rear doors which was quickly corrected, the vehicle has no flaws. Rotate tires and change oil and, of course, fill the tank and it is always ready to g. A great truck!




'04 much better than 99

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE Rwd SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

I purchased a 2004 Sierra after buying a new 1999 one which was a DOG. I went against my better judgement and ordered the '99 knowing that GM never gets a new model right in the first year but I also know that after building the same truck for 5 years GM gets the bugs out, I was right, the '04 is much better than the '99 otherwise I would have shot myself by now




Pleasantly surprised

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE Rwd SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

I bought my 04 SLE extended cab 2WD last month and this truck gives me so much for my money. It accelerates effortlessly with the 5.3, shifts smoothly with the AT, and get 22 mpg on the freeway... that's right, 22 MPG!




Good ride

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE Rwd SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

This truck has been very good to me. It has performed flawlessly and the gas mileage hasn't changed either up or down by more than 1 mpg. I thouroughly enjoy driving this truck. My truck has the Z71 package and it has a solid feel to it.
