2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Have had too many issues with truck since buying it. Have took it in to dealer for issues with rear camera sometimes not working (still not fixed). A/C condenser also not working (still not fixed). I've also had issues when pumping gas the nossle just clicks off as if tank is full. maybe this is due to emission laws or whatever but its annoying and i can only pump gas at certain places witch is inconvenient (also still not fixed). Many people seem to have the same issues and GM nor the dealer can admit it. Will never buy GM ever again.

Review

Best truck I’ve ever owned hands down. Comfortable, quiet and smooth. 6.2 tows the big camper with ease. Amazing gas mileage for such a big engine. Up to 24 on the open highway. 28k no issues yet.

2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Double Cab 4WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I was a Silverado owner since 2001 - 2017. This time both my son and I agreed the Sierra has a number of upgrades of the utilitarian Silverado. The ride is even quieter thanks is part to the noise dampening in the wheel wells. The front seats are very comfortable while the back seat is well, there. This has many little extras; 120 volt outlet, backup camera, Android/Apple Play, heated seats, leather covered dashboard, garage door openers, LED lights, great phone audio, wifi. Along with all these creature comforts, I feel like I am in a truck because it stance / presence. It's no wanna-be truck, it has some great power.

Review

This truck is beautiful! I call the look "Macho Chic". It performs nicely off road, and is a head turner driving aroynd town. Cabin is VERY quiet, thanks to the Bose noise-cancelling, and it is very spacious and comfortable, even for a 6'4" dude. The only "interesting" thing is the tranny seems a little sluggish pulling away from a light, but that's probably how these trucks are tuned to optimize gas mileage. By the way, i have been pleasantly surprised with the gas mileage, which is about 20/30.
