Rented this leather loaded truck for a week prior to purchase. By far it was a smoother, more comfortable, higher quality truck than the other foreign truck companies .... by far. The controls are simple, easy to use, the interior is very quiet. The second row seats need more room though, if the RAM can give that much room, why cant everyone else ? The Truck drove like a dream, pulled cargo like a champ, and the only reason I didnt buy it was because, for the same options, it was $$$$ more than the RAM. But this was truly a nice truck in every way - except the exterior design went in the wrong direction.

A step up from FORD

I just bought my first GMC and after two weeks love it. The 2012 Sierra SLE I bought used has 12,700 on it. The previous owned took good care of the Truck and never had any issues. The truck is head and shoulders above my 2003 Ford F250. My Ford served me well however the rear fender well were rusted through and the doors weer also rusting out at an alarming rate the exhaust manifold also was done. The way the Sierra rides is awesome it feels like a luxury care. Granted I am coming from a F250 with leaf springs all around. The truck has a nice stance and does not look dated although it has not had an exterior redesign since 2007. The interior is very nice and the seats are comfortable. I have the extended cab and there is room in the back for an average sized adult. I find the truck also to be very responsive. The 5.3 engine with is powerful and great on the HWY. It is a very nice truck and seems to be well built. I have owned several Ford products and considered myself a Ford man. But after buying this truck I no longer would consider a Ford truck. GMC has me as long as the keep making GMC truck I will buy them. Can't bring myself to buy a Chevy yet I know GMC and Chevy trucks are the same, just can't handle the bow tie on my vehicles lol.

I have had nothing but Ford trucks my whole life. First one was a F150 brand new 1978. Then after 3 years I got a 81 Bronco II, after that I got an F-250 1983 Brand New all of them. I jumped over to Dodge and had it 10 Years and went Back to ford and Got another F250 Diesel had that 10 years. I recently visited my Brother N law and he had a GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. We Drove it from Ohio to Canada on a fishing expedition. After we got back from the Fishing I went straight to my GMC Dealer and order a new 2012 GMC Sierra 6.2L, High Performance Z60 suspension 4X4 with the 3.42 rear, . THIS IS AN Awesome , Comfortable Truck. Keep an open mind and buy what you like. I test drove every Truck out there prior to our Fishing trip. I never thought about a GMC. Test Drive one.

Big difference in ride and fuel economy

I needed a new truck. My 05 Ford needed to much in repairs. We found this truck through cars.com at a local Cadiliac dealer. So far everything is great. The truck had low miles, in like new condition. I lucked out. Instead of paying all the money for a new truck I bought a truck that is like new.It doesn't have all the options but enough for me.

Great Truck

I love my truck. I purchased a 2012 GMC Sierra work truck. I have owned it now for 3 months and I guess my only issue is the radio. I feel even though my truck is a work truck they could have put in a better system for listening to music. The gas mileage so far is an average 17 MPG which really isn't that bad, I commute to work with my Honda or motorcycle just to offset the cost of gas. I bought the truck for work and not commuting so I knew going into it that gas mileage was or could be an issue. I am happy with my purchase and still think GMC is the best looking truck in its class. My plans are to take care of the vehicle and hope to get 20 good productive years out of it.

Best looking truck on the road

Was looking for either a Chevy or a GMC with the Diamond Tri-coat metallic white paint with certain features and lower mileage truck. My wife liked this color and she also asked for heated leather beige seats. Well, this seemed simple enough to do. But it wasn't. I found one that had most of the extras she wanted, but not the heated seats. So now I will have to find a place close by that can put in after market heated seat elements on the front seats. But other than than, we both LOVE the truck.

Need more time to evaluate

by from Norfolk, Virginia on April 1, 2013

So far so good. This truck has similar options of my previous 2004. Hoping for the same kind of performance/reliability as the 04...if so I will be very pleased.

THIS TRUCK HAS MANY FEATURES BUT THE CONTROL AND HANDLING STAND HEAD ABOVE THE OTHERS. WITH CONTROLS ON YOUR STEERING WHEEL MAKES IT EASY TO DO ANYTHING FROM THE DRIVERS SEAT. THE ECONOMY HELP BEAT THE HIGH GAS PRICES AND WITH PLENTY OF POWER TO DO THE THINGS A TRUCK IS MADE FOR. ITS A GREAT VALUE.
