2007 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE1 2dr Regular Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Test drove every truck out there including new Tundra with the 5.7 in reg cab. They all fell short of the GMC in one way or another. The interior was a big one, most felt quite cheap and the comfort level of this new Sierra is amazing. Handling is great, ride is excellent, good power and getting really good mileage in this reg cab with the 5.3 and AFM even though not broken in yet. I'm sure the smaller size of the truck makes a big difference in how often you are in V4 mode. Lots of great standard features, priced out about the same as the '06 I looked at last year.
Power, handling, ride, mileage, interior, wheels, lots of standard features included in price. It's the little details like the heater fan you can't even hear at 3/4 and the driver info center that really make it nice.
Drop the trucks a bit, they sit high, gaps in wheelhouses are big! Would like to order any engine in any cab style! Also, GM limiting some options based on cab style is annoying. Lighten truck up for even better mileage.
