6 l. Motor large cab pick up truck.

I have a 2006 GMC Denali sierra 1500, it is a 4 door pick up truck with a full cab with a center console. The seats are heated in the front seats, there are 3 levels of heating and a separate heat button for the top seat heater. The pickup has a wonderful trim package that is black and gray wood grain details. There are plenty of cargo/ space in the center console along with a 12 volt charge along with the cigarette lighter in dash and a 12 volt in the dash. The side view mirrors have the turn signals inside they also have power close option with the backup tilt which is nice to have. The ride is great on the car it is a 6 liter motor and has over 120, 000 miles and it is still full of get up and go. The gas mileage is about 15 miles a gallon. The rear window defrosters work great. The windshield washer hose broke but other then that the headliner dropping are the only issues we have had with the pick up, I highly recommend a the 6l 1500 GMC Denali.

An interesting detail about my truck is she never broke down.

My truck is a GMC sierra. I named her betty. My truck performs well in all kinds of weather. The only problem I have is with my tires and for an old truck she moves pretty fast. Before I had a problem with the ac in my truck but I got that fixed. With cleaning and respecting my truck rules she performs amazingly. She moves fast and everything is in working condition. My rule for all those who own vehicles is that if you respect your vehicle and the road, the vehicle will perform phenomenally.

I love my truck and how durable and dependable its functions are.

I really enjoy my truck. I feel as though it is extremely reliable as well as easy to fix. I find that its performance, when maintenance is upheld, is entirely satisfactory. However, I wish I had four wheel drive rather then two wheel drive. The suicide doors are convenient for loading and traveling with passengers and after 12 years of use, the interior and engine have stayed in almost pristine condition. I am very satisfied with this make and model.
