A powerful drivetrain and stout underpinnings make the Sierra 1500HD (and its Silverado twin) a good option for buyers who like the size of a half-ton pickup but require extra towing capacity. If you don't plan to tow, the Nissan Titan and Dodge Ram are better overall trucks.

We researched the purcase of a new truck to death, I think, and we always came back to the GMC. This truck was by far the best value for the dollars. We love our truck! The crew cab was truly the answer our need for four doors for when our folks come into town.

We love our GMC. We have a small farm and use it for alot of work type things but also use it for our family vehecle. We have the long box option on ours though. The long box rides much smoother than the short box. It also is great for sleeping in!

Overall this is the best truck I have ever owned. I have owned Ford's , Dodge, & chevy's...I traded a Chevy Blazer for My Sierra so I would have more room & comfort for me as well as my kids. It was definitely worth it. Smooth, quiet, comfortable ride with plenty of room for 6 people. Gas mileage is around 16 mpg in the city, which is about all I got from my Blazer on the highway, so comparitively speaking for it's size it gets pretty good gas mileage! Very powerful engine, good steering & control features. If your looking for a truck that has it all then test drive a GMC...kids can even watch tv with the optional DVD player but you would lose your 6th seat! A+ to GMC .
The heavy-duty 1500HD crew cab is back once again this year for buyers who like the size of the light-duty 1500 crew cab, but need more power and towing capacity. As on other half-ton Sierras, a power sunroof is a new option, and it includes a HomeLink universal transmitter and deluxe overhead console.
