With its numerous powertrain and cab configurations and stout towing and hauling capacities, the Sierra 3500 is a hard truck to beat for those who need maximum functionality and capability from their work truck.

I haul a 11'6" Lance Legend camper and
pull a 8'x12' trailer with it loaded
with ATV's and a motorcycle and the
truck does all I want it to. I traded
a Powerstroke in and I am pleased that
I did. It's quite and rides and
handles a lot better then my old Ford.
I am getting around 12mpg at freeway
speeds with this load.

This was the worst vehicle i ever had.
It broke down right as i was pulling
out of the dealership. The dealership
then actually charged me for towing it
the 10 feet to the service area!!
Turns out the axle was faulty. They
also found that the radiator leaked too.
For 2004, a single-rear-wheel 4WD version is available in all body styles. Additionally, GMC has slotted in a value-priced Work Truck trim level below the base model. Base models pick up a chrome grille and bumpers, along with cruise control, while SLE models get foglights and can be equipped with leather upholstery. New accessories include a lockable storage area under the rear seat, and a choice between a soft tonneau bed cover and a hard locking cover.
