I loved this truck ...I say loved because I no longer have it. 2000 miles into ownership I had my first wreck of nearly 40 years of driving. My beautiful truck got T boned by a guy doing about 65 mph. My truck flipped with me in it and all the curtain airbags deployed along with OnStar immediately asking if I was ok. The other driver was taken to the hospital with injury's (He's doing good now) but I climbed out of the truck without a scratch. I hope that I never need the safety features on the GMC again but I can't say enough about them. btw I am on my way to buy my next GMC now.
I have driven nothing but GMC trucks since 1985. This truck is the smoothest, technology driven, comfortable, safest and the best GMC I have ever owned. All of my buddies are drooling. Before I would lend out my truck to friends and family to use for all sorts of reasons....now no one can use it....I'm being stingy. I'll only let my wife drive it....but she don't wanna drive it....which is just fine by me. I can't say enough about just how great and reliable this truck is. I have the Iridem Metallic color and believe me when I'm driving around town I get plenty of thumbs up. The interior even beats out my Acura RDX for features and comfort. My advise is buy one....if you can get a 2016 buy it....Kelly Blue Book says the price for the 2016 is much better and lower than the 2017 for essentially the same exact vehicle.
love my new truck, it is very quiet at speed also fun to drive because it is very athletic on the move and has the best steering of any truck out there, the engine 5.3 feels under-powered but silky smooth, the seats are supportive and comfortable, transmission is OK not the best but I can't complain either. Interior is the best of any trucks, because it is tastefully done (not busy like Ford F150 or RAM with its painted in silver plastics) this cabin is simpler but with great materials. Best Buy!
I've owned my sierra for roughly 8 months now and am very happy with the truck overall. Classy interior, quiet and comfortable ride, strong acceleration and great mpg's (for a truck). One complaint that I do have is with the transmission. From time to time, the tranny will seemingly slip. Other times, shifting is very rough. These issues aren't consistent, but when they do occur, they seem to occur when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. These issues seem to be common and I've read that they are less about the transmission itself and more about the programming that determines shift points and other transmission related operations. Apparently these things have been programmed for max gas mileage and the result is less than desirable shifting. This is a tough pill to swallow considering I paid 50,000+ for the truck. I'd gladly give up 1mpg for a transmission that doesn't act like its about to fall out of the truck.
Just bought this truck last month and have been to the dealer three times for repair. First repair was changing 3 of the 4 tires due to excessive road force, the truck would jiggle very bad at 70mph. Second dealer visit the truck heater does not turn off, the dealer told me this is a common characteristic of this truck, no fix but the did tell me to leave the air on at all time I will get less gas mileage but it wont be so hot in the cab, Nice? Third Dealer visit was not big deal but come to find out GMC intellilink does not support iphone6. Basically I get a phone call it will shut off nav, radio, etc. and not return. I have to manually turn power back on to device. The most frustrating is randomly it will our of the blue start playing my phones music even if my daughter is watching a cartoon in back, music will just turn on from no where. Pretty nice experience thus far for a $62000 truck.
