GMC Sierra 1500 Overview

The Sierra (and similar Chevrolet Silverado) are among our top-scoring pickups. Handling is relatively responsive and the spacious cabin is quiet. Benefits include easy cabin access, simple controls, and generous towing and payload capacities. Fuel economy with the 5.3-liter V8 crew cab we tested was an exceptional 16-mpg overall, but the truck feels a bit sluggish in everyday driving. Other engines are a 4.3-liter V6 and powerful 6.2-liter V8, which gets an eight-speed automatic for 2015. Its few shortcomings include a jittery ride, and front seats that aren't as supportive as those in some competitors. First-year reliability of the redesign has been much below average.
