GMC Sierra 1500 Overview

With its 2014 redesign the Sierra (and similar Chevrolet Silverado) has emerged as our top-scoring pickup. Handling is relatively responsive and the spacious cabin is very quiet. Benefits include easy cabin access, simple controls, and generous towing and payload capacities. Fuel economy with the popular 5.3-liter V8 in the Silverado crew cab we tested was a best-in-class 16 mpg overall. Other engines are a capable 4.3L V6 and powerful 6.2L V8. Each is all-new and mated to a six-speed automatic. It shines as a work truck. Its few shortcomings as a day-to-day vehicle include a jittery ride and front seats that aren't as supportive as those in some competitors.
