BIG TRUCK FOR A SMALL GAS WORLD
2008 GMC Sierra 1500icechicken - richmond, va11/03/2008
In an effort for save on a gas bill of over $150.00 a week I had to make a move. My 2500hd Extended cab with the 6.0 was driving me into budget debt quickly. I found the new Sierra and took a test drive. The new engine management system was a good start and i was surprised to find it very driver friendly. Showing 21mpg on the sticker is one thing but actually proving it is another. I now have driven it for 3 months and am pleased to find i am averaging about 20 mpg as compared to the 13 I was getting in the heavier truck. The 4 cylinder to 8 cylinder switching is not noticable to the driver and is fantastic on the highway.
The ride of the new sierra is far superior to the previous model. Much like a car in manueverability and firm ride when towing or pulling.
The interior is comfortable and spacious with every thing is in arms reach. Styling is new for the new model and gives it a distinct truck look with some styling for dress appearance.
GM has done a wonderful job with the new trucks. The world has gone from big trucks and suv's with big gas tanks to electric vehicle and small tanks. If you still need a truck but need to be thrifty on gas day to day the new sierra 1500 with the new management system is definitely worth a test drive.
Great price for a decked out low mileage truck.
