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!).

Great pickup truck

by from IL on November 9, 2010

I have an 08 Sierra 4x4 regular cab. I bought it with 12,000 miles on it. I now have 25,000 miles. The truck is everything I hoped it would be. Nothing beats a GM pickup.

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 came out of my Sierra Classic style not very convinced about the style of the new Sierra. However, it didn't even took me a day to realize how much of improvement GM reached with this truck. The seats are a lot more comfortable, the ride is excellent, the panel and the steering wheel control are much more smarter. The sound system, the handling, the fuel economy, you name it was improved. If you are thinking about coming out of the classic style, I now how much you like that one, but you wont regret it. I have a 1500 SLE1 crew with leather and some options like sunroof. I really enjoy having this truck and would recommend it to anyone. Great on towing which is what I use it for and great features you don't even expect on a truck.

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 got rid of a '05 Toyota Tacoma V6 prerunner 4 door. I was averaging about 16 mpg in the city and 19-20 in the hwy. I was not satisfied with the ride comfort (stiff ride). I bought a 1500 Sierra, crew cab, 5.3L, 2wd. What a difference in ride comfort compared to the Tacoma. 1st tank of gas I averaged about 15.5 mpg, 2nd tank was 16 mpg and after the 3rd tank, I averaged 17.1 mpg. It's getting better. I had it lowered to a 2-5 drop and the truck looks great leveled. The back end (stock) was a little too high. Obviously, I will not be towing or have a load in the bed. I test drove other full size trucks and was not completely satisfied with what the other trucks offered and that includes the silverado. I also like the exterior looks of the sierra compared to the silverado.

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).
