Beautiful design , but the worst truck I’ve ever owned .

Beautiful design , but the worst truck I’ve ever owned . First collapsed lifter from the crappy cylinder delete system and then needed a new transmission. All this with 68k miles!!!! xxx!!!!?? My 2005 had 300k and was still running strong. Traded in my 2016 for a tundra!



I love our truck. The transmission i do not love. We had to spend 5600.00 on a new transmission We didn't even have 80,000 miles on our truck we also had an extended warranty but not two months after this run out the transmission went out. I believe according to other reviews I have read that GMC knew this transmission was trash and mass produce it anyway. i will therefore tell everyone that has one that they better watch out for the transmission. and even ask I will tell anyone not to buy this or anything GMC.



We have had our GNC 2016 Sierra 1500 for Less Than 3 years and we are going into our third transmission I think the transmission should have a recall on them


My 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT All Terrain - Love it!

I've owned this GMC Sierra 1500 All Terrain since it was 8 months old. With the exception of two warranty issues (failing power brake vacuum pump and transmission electrical harness), I have been totally happy with this truck. Up until now, my 1996 Chevrolet K1500 Silverado with it's 5.7L Vortec engine was my favorite truck of all time, this GMC (5.3L LS engine, 8 speed automatice) has earned the top spot now of my all time favorite truck. It is comfortable to drive, and runs as good as the day I bought it over 5+ years ago. I've got 71.5K miles on it. My biggest issue is I wished it had the 6.2L engine for better towing capabilities. Other than that ... love this truck.


I've had the truck a month, and so far so good!

It's exactly what I was looking for; used but not too used, low miles, good looking but not too many bells and whistles, and didn't need any work.


Big and Beautiful

I am a big fan of cupholders, this will make or break a deal for me. It could use more, but has a sufficient amount for the normal person. Beautiful body style and comfy.


awesome truck

love this truck, color, styling, fuel economy,comfort and how quiet it is. I have owned many general motors vehicles and I only had 1 major issue. That being my 2005 GMC SIERRA. Transmission went, covered by the warranty. The 2016 is by far my favorite. Love the truck!!!


I don't know how good of a truck it is I haven't h

The truck was great just the people I dealt with were idiots was lied to on the truck for six months and they still have not produced a title a bunch of incompetent idiots


First Lifted truck I've ever owned

The truck I hope meets my needs. Sharp looking and appeared well maintained by previous owner(s). After having it only three days I do hope the few details I've noticed, the dealer is able to address them as not petty and fix them to satisfaction. I hope to get many years out of it though approaching 50k on the odometer. So far, all satisfied.


Awesome truck for the money

Its a 4 door, 4x4, decently powered, full sized truck at a good price! What more can you ask for? That and its really comfortable...for a truck that is.
