Description: Used 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT for sale - $39,998, 75,737 miles with 4WD/AWD, Leather Seats, BOSE Sound System, Satellite Radio Ready, Parking Sensors, Rear View Camera
Transmission: Automatic Color:Green Interior Color: Brown Average Vehicle Review: (4.7 reviews) The new 6 speed transmission (6L80?) Is complete trash. It short shifts in an attempt to save revs and therefore fuel. Cruising at 25-35 mph the trans cannot decide what gear to be in and stumbles all over itself. The Active Fuel Management (AFM) will shut off 4 cylinders when cruising to save fuel and while this is a good idea, it is not well executed when paired to this transmission. It will cause a noticable surge and lag in and out of AFM mode. These truck come with "grade breaking" on by default. Totally unnecessary. My truck (purchased at 19k miles) went to the dealer for a trans overhaul at 21k miles for "harsh" downshifting. It felt like was was being re-ended under hard breaking from 2nd gear shifting down to 1st.

Transmission: Automatic Color:Blue Interior Color: Black Average Vehicle Review: (0 reviews) The GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 6.2L is such an amazing truck. Looks awesome, drives smooth and has lots of power when you need it, is super comfortable and roomy, and is reliable. Some people say they have had issues with the transmission not shifting smoothly but I have not had that happen to me. Overall this truck fits my lifestyle. I mainly drive it on highway and city roads, but I can also take it off road if I want since it is a 4 x 4. The main thing is it does it's job and my family loves it, especially my 2 sons. They love riding in it.

Overall Rating

Luxury and Practicality

This is a lumberjack in a tuxedo - 1/2 ton pickup with a 6.2 L V8 4x4 with lane keeping assistance, backup camera, heated seats, steering wheel and mirrors, blind spot monitor, parking assist, auto everything, power side steps, 3 point lighted bed. Pulls our travel trailer with ease, sits nice and high with 22” wheels, and plows through snow like butter!

Pros

  • Power: 420 hp in a 1/2 ton
  • Styling: Ultimate package has every option available
  • Ride and Handling: Drives as smooth as a luxury car

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: Big V8 gets 16 mph

- Mark O, 2016 GMC Sierra 1500

Awesome truck!

The GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 6.2L is such an amazing truck. Looks awesome, drives smooth and has lots of power when you need it, is super comfortable and roomy, and is reliable. Some people say they have had issues with the transmission not shifting smoothly but I have not had that happen to me. Overall this truck fits my lifestyle. I mainly drive it on highway and city roads, but I can also take it off road if I want since it is a 4 x 4. The main thing is it does it's job and my family loves it, especially my 2 sons. They love riding in it.

Pros

  • Power: This truck has tons of power with the 6.2 liter V8. Towing capacity when you need it or just enjoying your drive to work.
  • Styling: I love the look of this truck. The way it is designed and how it looks is a big plus.
  • Interior Space: Since I have the SLT, I have leather seats and the interior is very comfortable. I have the crew cab so there is tons of space for my family on road trips.

Cons

  • Reliability: I haven't had any transmission problems but lots of people have with this model truck.
  • Cost to Maintain: The manufacturer requires only premium fuel. The tires will also be pricey since they sit on 22 inch wheels.
  • Fuel Economy: Its not great. 15 to 21 mpg but what can you expect from a big truck.

- Michael Medina, 2015 GMC Sierra 1500

Transmission is garbage.

The new 6 speed transmission (6L80?) Is complete trash. It short shifts in an attempt to save revs and therefore fuel. Cruising at 25-35 mph the trans cannot decide what gear to be in and stumbles all over itself. The Active Fuel Management (AFM) will shut off 4 cylinders when cruising to save fuel and while this is a good idea, it is not well executed when paired to this transmission. It will cause a noticable surge and lag in and out of AFM mode. These truck come with "grade breaking" on by default. Totally unnecessary. My truck (purchased at 19k miles) went to the dealer for a trans overhaul at 21k miles for "harsh" downshifting. It felt like was was being re-ended under hard breaking from 2nd gear shifting down to 1st.

Pros

  • Power: Lots of pep in this rev-happy 5.3L
  • Styling: Easy on the eyes
  • Ride and Handling: Rides/handles great. Unlike most big trucks

Cons

  • Reliability: I don't think this trans will last
  • Cost to Maintain: Again, trans.
  • Value: Trans, trans, trans.
