2008 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE1 2dr Regular Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
I have built quite a few cars and trucks over the years, this by far out performs them in an all around sense. I got a pretty basic truck for my buisness so that's why comfort is a marked low. My only complaints are that I didn't go bigger with an extended or crew cab, and we need the 6 speed in the basic trucks too. The motor is the most impressive part of this truck. I have a tool box and tonneau, and now acheive up to 22 mpg. The six speed wouldn't work here. My friends Scion TC only get 25-27 mpg average so I'm very very happy.
The 4.8 liter Vortec. 300 horse, and 22 mpg. And to think I almost got the Colorado with 1/2 the bed size.
Introduce power windows, and door locks to all trim levels. I'm 5'9" AND can not reach the other door unless I walk around. Also the 6 speed. The gears can get a bit wide when loaded up with 1500 pounds. I'll be your best friend GMC.
