Used 2004 GMC Sierra 3500 Crew Cab Review

Edmunds expert review

With its numerous powertrain and cab configurations and stout towing and hauling capacities, the Sierra 3500 is a hard truck to beat for those who need maximum functionality and capability from their work truck.

What's new for 2004

For 2004, a single-rear-wheel 4WD version is available in all body styles. Additionally, GMC has slotted in a value-priced Work Truck trim level below the base model. Base models pick up a chrome grille and bumpers, along with cruise control, while SLE models get foglights and can be equipped with leather upholstery. New accessories include a lockable storage area under the rear seat, and a choice between a soft tonneau bed cover and a hard locking cover.
