GMC's 'Hot Truck' is still a truck
By silky on


2002 GMC Sierra 1500 2dr Regular Cab 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)


Wants: A vehicle to haul stuff and still be sporty. GMC's Sierra 1500 with the 'HT' package seemed a good bet. A 4.8 liter 270 hp motor, auto trans and heavy duty suspension. After 8k miles I'm disappointed. The engine lacks low end torque often shifting in first gear to pass or merge with authority. The ride is choppy on the freeway and gas mileage is poor, best 15mpg.

Best Features

Smooth V8. Quiet Cab. Supple ride on surface roads.

Worst Features

More low end torque. Smoother freeway ride.
