Sharp comfortable work truck

Vehicle2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLE1 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewI am just approaching its first 1000 miles, so 13.8 ave. mpg of the 6.0L gas engine in wet to snowy suburban/hwy driving may improve in milder/dry weather as it gets broken in. The SLE1 interior trim is a step up from your average work truck with comfortable seats and leather wrapped steering wheel. A smooth quiet ride for a heavy duty truck under most conditions. Feels heavy, but stable and turns on a dime when you want it to. The 26 gal tank may seem limiting, but that is still good for mid-300 mile range, farther than most people would drive without taking a break. Overall it would be hard to find a better truck.
Best FeaturesPrecise handling, 6 speed transmission seems to be intuatively in the right gear for your driving style, but also has trailering (sport) mode or manual (+/- buttons). Driver information center including ave. mpg, miles remaining on fuel tank, tire pressures, oil life, etc. Styling inside and out.
Worst FeaturesA bit bouncy unloaded on rhythmic expressway bumps from 18 wheel gravel trucks with no shocks, and a point off otherwise excellent interior for steering wheel not in line with seat/instruments, hiding voltmeter and part of speedometer. Instruments a bit bright fully dimmed for rural driving.
