 Pros For the longest time, the GMC Sierra 1500 Truck has been near or at the top of its class thanks to its strong yet refined performance on and off the road. With the addition of the XFE model combined with the 5.3L FlexFuel engine, a smooth yet tough ride can be expected.

 Pros The well-finished (and furnished) cabin is something to look forward to. Buyers can clearly see the attention to detail made by GMC allowing for comfort and slots for technological add-ons.

 Pros Speaking of technologies included with the vehicle, buyers can count on the OnStar advanced communication system. This is an automatic Crash Response System that can notify the system in case of a crash and can pinpoint the exact location;

 Pros There are five suspension systems to choose from and best for different driving requirements including the Z83, Z85, Z60, NHT and Z71.

 Cons One common complaint against the GMC Sierra 1500 Truck is the minor ergonomic issues for the interior;

 Cons There are hesitant downshifts as well and this is experienced in the 4-speed automatic transmission;

 Cons When it comes to horsepower produced, though the GMC Sierra 1500 Truck offers respectable power, it is still not enough to match the class average. The average horse production for the class is 335.04 horsepower while the GMC Sierra 1500 Truck only manages to pack 195 horsepower;

 Cons The maximum payload of the Sierra 1500 Truck also pales in comparison with the class average. The truck offers 1937 lb while the class average is 3352.16 lb.
