One Big Truck
By Paul Harrison on
Vehicle2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab SLE 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewThis is my dream truck. 12 MPG City/16 Highway - no better even with Mobil 1. The 6.0L is fine for commuting, racing punks in Civics and hauling stuff from Lowe's. It does work hard to tow a 6,000 lb. camper. The 6.0L is a revver not a torquer. If you do more than occasional towing, the Duramax is the choice for you. The 8.1L gets 9 MPG so think carefully before making that choice. It hauls 2 tons, that's right, 2 tons of gravel without squatting or skipping a beat. The OEM Bridgestone tires wore out at 45K and because it has to work to tow a moderate trailer, I gave it a 9. It is a monster to park, especially in a parking garage so Fun to Drive is a 9.
Best FeaturesThe A/C kicks butt. Everything on the truck is solid. Quality paint finish - still looks new. I added a Linex spray- on bedliner - worth every penny.
Worst FeaturesChange the design of the cabin air filter and lug nut covers. Improve the dealers' customer service focus.
