2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Crew Cab SLE 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


This truck is the ultimate Great American Vehicle, a fast, powerful and exquisitely beautiful truck. I grew up in the seventies, and loved cars. This truck is quicker than Vettes of that era, with a ride equal to that of luxury cars of today. With its Z-71 suspension system this monsterous beast can cut around corners like a sports car, not bad for being able to tow 4 Mazda Miatas down the road without breaking a sweat. Gas mileage can stink, but this truck also comes with a sophisticated Driver Information System, one of its abilites is giving instantaneous fuel mileage. Steady 60 MPH kicks back 24.9 mph. That is phenomenal! Gunning the rumbling 5.3 motor is addicting however! I LOVE IT!

Best Features

Massive appearance with a nimble ride, Mighty Beast strength with classic American elegance. AutoTrac allows for care free snow traction, cant hurt it by driving on dry road. Works wonderfully well too, 17 inches of snow didnt slow this truck down at all, just awesome! Plenty of room too!

Worst Features

Well ... side bars should be standard on this $38 thousand dollar truck, delete them FOR CREDIT, I am over six feet tall and dont have a problem getting in or out but doing so gracefully can be tricky A bigger gas tank would be useful too, this thing begs to be hammered and that do burn the gas up!!
