2011 GMC Sierra 1500 Review

Why do so many knowledgeable truckers choose Sierra? Not surprisingly there's a long list of reasons. Like a century-long heritage of professional-grade performance reliability and durability. Awesome power is an integral part of every Sierra pickup. There are several engines to choose from. From the fuel efficient 4.3 Liter V8 that earns 20 Miles per gallon highway all the way to the powerful 6.2 liter V8 or the Duramax 6.6L V8 Turbo choose what suits you best. Sierra is engineered to keep on looking good over the long haul too thanks to features like a rugged double-wall cargo box and long-lasting base-coat/clear-coat paint. Sierra added real comfort and refinement while simultaneously taking function to a higher level. You and your passengers will enjoy quality materials and a remarkable level of workmanship with attention to detail that shows in the seat stitching and the overall fit and finish. As if great looks great performance and great engineering weren't enough reason to choose Sierra here's another one: safety. In U.S. government testing Sierra earned the highest possible rating – 5 stars. The 2011 GMC Sierra. Finishing the jobs that other trucks start.
