Review of the 2001 GMC Sierra C3

  • A pickup lover's dream truck with a price that will likely keep it that way.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Class leading power, full-time all-wheel-drive, upscale amenities.

    Premium price.

  • What's New for 2001

    The extended-cab C3 is an entirely new truck based on the Sierra 1500 half-ton full-size pickup. Its 6.0-liter V8 makes it the only GM half-ton truck available with this engine. Sharing styling cues and feature content with luxury GMC SUVs, think of the C3 as a Denali pickup.

Still truckin'

This is the best truck ever. I slammed the original tranny last year hauling the RV, but that wasn't too bad to replace. Horsepower is awesome. Dual Flowmasters sound deep and strong. 111k on this bad boy and I'm not about to give it up now. Bought it with 80K. Hauls our 29' RV w/out a problem, pontoon boat doesn't even make it breath hard. My 10yr old son wants it when he turns 16. We'll see about that. I would like to see how it matches up to the new GMC with 402hp. I bet with AWD it will keep up or beat it.




Perfect truck

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Sierra C3 4dr Extended Cab AWD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this truck when it was two years old and had 65,000 miles on it it now has 200,000 miles on it and never had a problem of all the cars I own this is the funnest one to drive I love it the awd system is 10 times better than a Z-71 I love this truck period




Simply put: the best vehicle

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Sierra C3 4dr Extended Cab AWD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

The Dodge dealer couldn't stand having a truck on its lot that looked better than all of the Dodge trucks around it, so I got a great deal. First impression: The best looking truck I'd ever seen. (I have the black one.) Second impression: The most powerful truck I'd ever driven. Third impression: The most versatile vehicle man has ever made. I can't say enough good things. If I want to go out on the town, I get it detailed, and it turns heads. If I need to tow 9000 lbs through the mud, I don't hesitate, and neither does the truck. I bought my C3 with 25k miles, and now have 122k miles. I've owned 15 cars/trucks - this is the best by far. From the other reviews, I'm not alone!




What a truck

I just got this truck and it is the best. Plenty of power, it can tow anything you need. It is the most comfortable ride for a truck. I would not hesitate to buy this truck again.

This truck is the king of half tons. Possibly due to the fact is it more HD than half ton. 6.0 motor is a stout, suprising power plant. The trans shifts smooth. Never do you feel it doesnt have enough there when passing. Hauling a boat? No contest hands down best gas motor truck for the job. Hemi who?
