Want to feel powerful and in control on the road? If so, then you might just love the GMC Sierra. High-quality, professional-grade, and jam-packed with the latest and most beneficial technology, this is a modern truck for the modern person.
Since the GMC Sierra is a truck, it does tend to get lower gas mileage than smaller vehicles.
However, this crew cab pickup short bed body still does quite well for itself. It can seat up to 6 passengers at a time and still gets a fairly impressive 16 MPG city and 21 MPG highway, thanks in large part to its strong gas V6 engine.
The Sierra’s 6 speed automatic transmission offers a lot of great features and capabilities, including:
- Electronically-controlled automation
- Overdrive mode
- Tow/haul mode
- Cruise grade braking
- Powertrain grade braking
Some features, however, are only available on certain models, so do check to ensure you know the exact specifications for the vehicle you’re interested in.
Control your vehicle at the drop of a dime, thanks to the Brakes-ABS on the GMC Sierra.
