I wrote an earlier review regarding the terrible headlights. GMC has put out an upgrade for the headlights. They re-program the BCM and increase the voltage to the lights. Also put in new bulbs. SEE GM SERVICE BULLETIN # PIT 5374.......... Had it done to mine. Haven't tested yet. Will advise later..

Bought 2014 Sierra, All Terrain in sept 2013. It has been back for 3 recalls and to have a leaky radiator replaced. Headlights are completely useless! Had to install extra lighting just to be safe at nite. My expense of course! GM will not acknowledge problem. As usual. Gas Mileage is no better than my 2011 Sierra was even tho this truck was advertised as improved. NOT! Heated seats do not come on when using remote start. In car Bluetooth system works sometimes with cell phone. Never would have bought this truck if I had known about the terrible lighting. And certainly won't buy another one. Very disappointed!

I am only three weeks into owning this 2014 Sierra 1500, SLE package, and am thrilled at its engine perfomance, styling, comfort, quietness, and handling. Having owned two Silverados prior to now, obviously I am a big fan of the big GM truck. But I beleive that the value engineering in the Sierra is better than Silverado, though the latter truck is no slouch either. I would not waste money on the SLT package though, the SLE has plenty of neat features and you can save some money . PS Thank God for the backup camera, it has already saved me once from disaster.

not happy with this GMC

This is my third GMC truck, and I expected to be thrilled with it, I'm not. let me count the ways: 1. First and foremost, this truck has the worst headlight system I have ever had on any vehicle I have ever owned. The 'projector' lights do not illuminate the road, they do not get 'brighter' on high beam, there is very limited 'side' visibility at night (especially when cornering), and when driving in snow, the plastic cover freezes over. (I have pictures) Look on the internet... I don't think I should have to 'retro-fit' a brand new vehicle so I can see at night !!! 2. In their infinite wisdom, GM has decided not to seal the bed inner liner to the outer wall... there is a gap at the top. this allows all kinds of road debris, snow, rain dirt, etc. to go up between the bed wall and into the bed... (my bed is covered with a Leer cap to protect the contents I carry). I have pictures of snow on top of the wheel well after driving for about 30 minutes in the snow. 3. The tailgate is designed with wide gaps on both sides and at the bottom so wide that I can 'see' into the bed with the tailgate closed.... this also allows the same snow, etc. to get into the bed (pictures also available ) 4. the 'double door' design seems to have reduced the leg room in the back seat by about 3 inches, and it has made it more difficult to access that area... my take is if you want four doors, buy the crew cab... leave the extended cab design alone 5. I use the 'stake holes' (or I used to use them). The new 'moveable' tie downs at the cab end of the bed are located IN the stake hold pocket... (not too smart engineering)... you find this out after you CUT out the bed rail... there are a few more minor issues, but this covers the biggest issues... Bottom line, this truck looks good, rides well, and gets better gas mileage than my prior GMC. But if I can't see at night, and the contents of the bed get ruined, even under the cap, due to poor design, then I'm not a happy owner. Had I driven this vehicle at night prior to buying it, I would have not bought this vehicle. Unfortunately, I'm ready to get rid of this 'new' vehicle, which is disappointing to me, especially after spending a lot of $$$ for it. Sorry GM

If you only drive during the day this is a good vehicle.Headlights were designed by an engineer with zero common sense.Headlight bulbs were updated and some type of reprogramming to upgrade performance, both were a waste.Upgraded Bulbs only lasted seven months and burned out within hours of each other.To get low beams to project out further they re-aimed headlight system. Now high beams are pointing to the sky. Sorry to say it looks like the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado's have what looks like the same system. I am thankful I have A good dealership but their hands are tied with no redesign in sight.

2014 GMC Sierra SLE

I've had this truck for a little over 2 months now (1980 miles currently). I was concerned about the mpg's initially but at around 1,000 miles it just took off and I'm consistently getting 22-23 highway in the 5.3 V8. Just think "smooth" when you're taking off and keep a couple of extra pounds of pressure in the tires. I think GM missed the boat on a couple other small things, like the bed lighting button. It should give a tell, as in show something on the button itself when it's on. It doesn't (but it does have a 10 minute shut off). And the button itself should be on the fob as you're usually out of the truck when you need the light. Just had a recall today (4-7-14) for a transmission cooler line. Evidently they can leak and fail. Not good. I know of an older model (07) Silverado where one of these failed and it was a mess and over $6K to fix. All the criticisms I've read of the entertainment system is true. The swipe motion and favorites and the touchscreen in general just isn't very responsive. But I've seen the F150's and that's worse. Plus I've my smartphone sync more than once. The voice commands generally work well. There is a terrible gap surrounding the tail gate and at the upper front corners. I have a folding soft cover that's pretty tight on top but the water and dirt still get in. If I lived on a dusty road or something I'd look into sealing it better somehow. Thinking about a piece of duct tape inside under the cover at the front corners (won't show anyway). Having said all that I'm still happy with my purchase. Rides smooth and quiet. And after only two months of winter driving I feel it handles the ice and snow as well as anything I've ever driven (General Grabber tires). I ended up with those tires after the dealer had to go the next town over to get the exact equipment I wanted on the truck. However, they've been solid performers, smooth and quiet. Have not been off road at all yet. Waiting for hunting season for that.

Awesome Truck

I've had my 2014 5.3L SLT 4X4 Crew for about a week now and I love it. I've had an F-150, Frontier, Tacoma, Ranger but none of these compare to this truck. It is almost perfect. It rides like a Cadillac and it is very practical as a family car. The only thing I don't like is the city driving. I'm averaging 13.5 mpg on the street while mostly driving uphill. Downhill street driving averages about 17mpg. Freeway driving averages about 21-22 which is great for a V8. The truck has the power there when you need it as well. I hope I'm not affected by the recalls on this model. One thing I have noticed is on speed bumps it bounces quiet a bit. Overall it I'm very happy with my purchase.

This is the best truck I have owned so far. I have a 2014 1500 Sierra double cab with the Z71 4x4 package with the 5.3 engine. This engine is plenty powerful for what you need it to do. It has the best gas mileage in it's class so far. The ride quality is smooth like Ram's ride quality and not bouncy and choppy like the Tundra that I had before that. The truck is well designed on the inside and outside and I love the usb ports and light inside the center storage compartment. I love the side steps on the bumper as well as the cargo bed lights. The infotainment center is very nice as well and I have not had any problems so far with it. It paired my Apple iPhone 6 with ease. I love the Sierra's design over Silverado's design since Sierra has a more upscale look. I wished the truck would have come with an under seat storage in the back like most brands have. Buying a gear box at my local truck accessory store took care of that. If there is one thing that GM could do as well as other manufacturers out there and that is please do not put Goodyear Wrangler SRA tires on these trucks. The SRA tires ride rough and have mediocre traction and are not designed for a pick up, SUV maybe, but not a pick up. I replaced the tires with Hankook Dynapro ATM which have excellent traction and smooth ride. This is a worthy truck to own. It is also handy if you have a GM Capital One card which will earn you discounts on GM vehicles. It helped me out.

Just what I needed

by from Ontario on January 21, 2015

Everything in this truck is well done. Ride is so comfortable. What an improvement. Dash is easy to operate. Not fond of the headlights but that is the only fault. Great buy
