2005 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab Work Truck 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
I drove them all. GMC still offers the 'work truck' and although it might be too spartan for some, I found it to be the right balance of form and function. Also, if price is an object (isn't it always)this baby rocks. I use my trucks like, well, trucks. And if I had had to spend $40,000+ on something else, I might be guilty of babying my truck. Then why by a truck? I had a bedliner sprayed in, and now it sees full duty as my primary working, boat pulling, camping, wheeling vehicle. Fit and finish are very nice. Plenty of power with the 6.0L. Even the cloth 'bench' seats are comfy.
6.0 liter V8-lots of power, great torque curve. Good sight lines over the hood. Great visibility all around the truck. Comfy seats and great leg room(I'm 6'4"). Very easy to handle even on less than perfect road conditions. Engine hour meter
