The ABSOLUTE TOP END of ALL TRUCKS, the DENALI!

By FAR the best truck I've ever had the pleasure of owning. The Sierra Denali AWD line to me rates far above any other truck out there ESPECIALLY when it comes to BOTH LUXURY AND PERFORMANCE! Who want's an Escalade Version -- it's just a tricked-out Avalanche, and I don't see what makes them at all useable trucks like this. INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE, and good gosh, with using a 4" SINGLE exhaust it has an incredible sound that I would NEVER change; it sounds as good if not better than a dual any day! There's just no getting around the fact that a fully loaded Sierra Denali ALL WHEEL DRIVE (the ONLY way to fly!) is the coolest, 'stock' performance truck on the market today. I have a Caddy DTS I absolutely love as a cruiser - yet by far I choose the Denali. IF Cadillac had something comparable, I'd have bought that, but they don't, so this is as good as good gets (in my humble opinion). Buy one for yourself, you'll never regret it (unless you have to part with it!).

I bought this truck with 1500 miles on the clock and love it. It had every available option from the factory. The truck did have a leak in the sunroof, but was repaired under warranty, thus the "4" for reliability. With the 6.2L engine, it has plenty of power to do anything and the AWD gives the truck go anywhere anytime capability. Normally, I would trade every two years, but I am keeping this vehicle for at least another year, I like it that much. If you are looking for a full size truck, the GMC is worth a look.

Just purchased a 2008 Sierra Denali in early July. This was my dream vehicle, so I might be a little bias. It's everything one would want in truck. Power, looks, comfort, luxury, and oh yeah, more power. 6.2 liter engine, 403 HP, 417 ft/lbs of torque. My family of 4 loves it. And my girls love being the only Sierra Denali on the road in our city. Lots of room and options. GMC drilled this truck. What else can I say. Go get one.

I had a '97 Sierra and when it came time to upgrade I went all out for the Sierra Denali. This thing has it all. AWD all the time and the towing is awesome. Taking my boat out to the lake is easy and the breaks are all disc. Can't go wrong with this. GM is getting better. Always had my eye on this one. Was looking at a new Tundra limited but for the price, only got a 5.7 liter engine. This Sierra got 6.2 liter 403 HP. Don't get me wrong it's a lot of Money but it's well worth it and will look to keep for a long time.

I bought my 08 truck with 19812 mile sharp looking truck. Gas milage not bad. But I had this vibration noise that was driving me crazy coming from underneath the dashboard were there is a lot of cheap plastic i found were the vibration was coming from and had to place foam in between the plastic to eliminate the problem. Other than that little problem truck has been reliable. This is my first GMC last truck was a 95 Toyota Tacoma had it for 14 years. I hope my GMC last longer.

I looked for a truck for about 8 months. I found this truck made an offer for it they agreed and i had the truck delivered to me. I like the performance of the truck I have not pulled a heavy load yet but i can tell there wont be a problem for the truck it has the 6.0 motor. My family and I have taken short trips in it we are all able to get in and out easy and we have enough room. My daughter really likes it that is the only vehicle she wants to ride in now. I have thoroughly enjoyed my truck and would recommend it (it does no get the best gas mileage but im not worried about that).

Most truck for the buck, especially if you tow.

My GMC is a 2500HD 2WD long bed ext cab, WT with appearance package, Fog Lights, Chrome grille and wheels; every towing package available, 6ltr v8 w/6 spd, and GT4 3:73 w/Eaton Posi. Let’s get the bad out of the way. The front fascia does not fit properly and has a slight gap in center of bumper, same with bed, fit is not the same at the cab from left to right; no buddy notices but me. The interior is the Work Truck has great fit as does the custom IP on the SLE/T. But the grain lets you know you are in a WT. I love this truck. I tow a 7k pound box trailer regularly and get 9-11 mpg in the western PA hills and better on the highway with an open bed and w/o a trailer aero cover. No one makes a fiberglass tonnaeu cover for the long box. The interior bucket seats hug my hips and secure my butt. The controls are easy to understand, feel and find, allowing me to maintain my view of the road. My kids fit on the back bench seat and love the view of the road. On the open road, to ATL, my Sierra got almost 20 mpg, w/open bed. The 6 spd takes a little getting use to, but decending hills, it is an absolute must. Torque; I simply out tow any comparable Dodge and that’s the closest truck to a GMC, I checked Ford, Dodge, and Toyota before I made my decision. And Dodge & Ford were making great deals. At 5k miles, no problems. The creature comforts; great CD w/iPod link, an information center, for additional mechanical updates, long driving comfortable seats and a great feeling steering wheel. I would only own a truck if it could make money. This GMC helps keep money in my pocket. Professional Grade A!

I bought this awesome truck with my own hard earnings. The truck is 2008 Gmc SIerra LT extended cab 4x4 with the 5.3 liter V8. I can't really say anything bad about the truck. The gas mileage is what i expect from a big truck. I travel to school and work every day and on the weekend, I head out to the trail with my Mountain bike. The truck gets almost 17 to the gallen becasue I'm in a city driving most of my time but the gas mileage goes up to almost 23 to the gallen because of the tonnaue cover i have on and very easy on the gas pedal. Not bad for someone who loves going out doors and enjoying what the nature offered.

Best Looking & Driving Truck Ever.

I have owned over 50 vehicles. About 20 were pick up trucks & primarily the top Japanese trucks.. I am now I love with my 2008 GMC Sierra. Let me tell you the primary reason. I have had severe back problems since an injury in 1993. Still have the problems, albeit, the ride of my 2 wheel drive Sierra SLE w/ the "High Performance Suspension," has done wonders for my back. The truck sits tall, has 20" tires & rides like a cadillac. Great lumbar support too! I bought this truck new & paid a very low price (Bought it several weeks before the new Prez was sworn in-need I say more?) Anyway, at that time, not much was moving from the area car lots & they finally made me quite a deal! I have owned probably 15 to 17 Top Rated Japanese Trucks; the last was a nice looking Tacoma- but it was murder on my back. Now I have a good looking Dark Blue Sierra w/ the 5.3lt. I did add the K&N Cold Air & also a FloMaster. I kid you not, when I drive her easy & do the speed limit, I have gotten 23 mpg on the highway- however, that mileage is when there is little to no wind. On the flip side, that small block will get 'er done!" All in all, I am happy with the truck & proud that I went completely American!
