My 1st GMC truck
By keven johnson on
2009 GMC Sierra 1500 Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Great sporty truck. It may be a Plain Jane work truck but that allowed me to personalize it. I love this truck!! It is QUIET (with the windows up), comfortable and BIG. The 4 speed auto. transmission with the 4.3 V-6 tends to hunt for a gear during cruse control. But as long as you are over 75 MPH it works well. Just keep your foot in it when the cruise is off. My mileage is a constant 18 MPG no matter how hard or easy I drive it.
Acceleration. That 4.3 V-6 is small for a truck this size but the 4 speed auto transmission makes up for it. I love the XM radio and phone.
Drop the V-6, go with a smaller V-8. Or match the V-6 with the 6 speed auto transmission.
