2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab Denali 4dr Crew Cab AWD 5.8 ft. SB (6.2L 8cyl 6A)


Review

No way this truck has 403hp. Had two different 06 Titan trucks that would leave this thing in the dust. Also, the Titans would out tow the Denali. The Bose radio system is whimmpy compared to other trucks and cars I have owned. Handling is so-so. No standard step rails or sprayed in bed liner. Come on GMC this is your top of the line? Get real. I guess this will be the last GMC I will buy.


Favorite Features

Sound of the engine. Comfortabe seats.


Suggested Improvements

Say goodby to AWD.

Review

I've only had this truck for a month and all I want to do is drive it. It rides and drives much better than my 05 did. (though I was happy with that truck as well) The controls are well laid out and easy to reach. There is planty of interrior storage. As for all you cry babies about gas mileage, what do you expect from a 5000lb truck with a 315hp V8? I am pretty much getting what the sticker claims. (14/19) If you are that concerned about gas mileage I recomend the Malibu. If you want a great truck then buy a Sierra.


Favorite Features

The ride comfort is incredible. Back up assist works flawlessly. Bose sound system, factory 20" wheels.


Suggested Improvements

I would have expected side impact air bags to be standard. Factory bluetooth would nice. How about a 6 speed trans to go with the 5300 engine.

Review

I just got my new GMC with the 5.3. I love the fact of the fuel managment system. The mpg's could be better but not bad. The engine is a power house. I traded my 2000 turbo diesel for this truck and with the 100k powertrain warranty. I know it will last the the term of the loan. I would buy 2 if I needed them.


Favorite Features

The 5.3 power house


Suggested Improvements

None

Review

Last truck was a '96 Z71 ext cab Chevy. This truck is awesome! I love 99% of it! I chose this, over the somewhat cheaper Silverado, due to the way the dealer treated me and the price they quoted me. No one else could come close to my deal.


Favorite Features

The ride is top notch. The overall quality of the vehicle is noticeable from the word go. Gas mileage is very good considering the weight and 4wd. I think my next truck will be a GMC as well if they keep up the great work!


Suggested Improvements

Driver side ergonomics. (My only complaint) I'm 6'tall, sore back, and would like to be able to tilt the seat back more while my arms can still reach the steering wheel without my knees being 1 inch from the dash! Either make the dash roomier at the knees or install an extend-able steering wheel.

Review

I've always been a General Motors man since I can remember being allowed to drive the neighborhood mechanics' '65 Fleetwood Brougham de'Elegance. Man that was sweet. Owned nothing but Cadi' since '77. Been wanting a truck for the last 10 yrs. Researched Ford, Toyota, Nissan, Chevy, and GMC, of course GMC won me over. I love this truck. Just in hindsight, wish I'd gotten the catback system with duals, chrome grille, the tonneau cover and 20s". Owned since Valentines day, 7,000 miles later, several trips to Memphis, one to Tupelo, I can't even complain about the gas mileage (great for a truck), flex fuel management is great. Thanks GMC you hit this one out of the park.


Favorite Features

Love the ride, comfortable for long distances, the look (it's cute)it's an eye catcher, my choices in changing the single disc to 6, cloth to leather, and the color, Crismon Metalic, or as I call it Black Cherry


Suggested Improvements

I agree with another reviewer, a spray on bedliner from the factory, running boards and the chrome grille and I do believe you would have more converters to the GMC family. Also more interior storage space.
