    My vehicle has a 5.3L V8. I get 13 mpg

    2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

    My truck has no problems. The performance is great. I can always rely on my truck to start and work in the way it should. It is very comfortable. The only minor issue is sometimes window buttons won't work right away but don't give up on it. They will work. The speakers could be better they bust easily. From a truck standpoint it is a good reliable truck. You can't go wrong with performance.

    - Jalen C

    The GMC Sierra is a very stylish truck with a hidden front fold down seat.

    2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

    The seating is very comfortable, you are not seat to high or too low. With the suspension you have a very smooth ride and comfortable. And if I had to do it all over again I would buy another GMC Sierra, they are terrific trucks. The interior is very stylish, I love the third hidden front seat that folds up.

    - Shirley T

    Fantastic vehicle, will not find one better.

    2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

    Very reliable, great in North Dakota winters. Only problem I have ever had was a light bulb that went out in the 4 years I have had it. It is comfortably fits four people, five or six is manageable if necessary. Very smooth in terms of driving and comfortable to be in for long periods of time if need be.

    - Lane T

    It is strong, durable, and dependable.

    2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

    I've had my truck for 5 years now. I haven't had any issues with it except for over the weekend. The fuel pump finally gave out at 175,000 miles. It is very dependable and reliable. I bought it 2 years old with 110,00 miles and people advised not to do it. The thing still runs very strong.

    2011 GMC Sierra SLE review

    2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

    I love the GMC sierra, it's the perfect pickup. The 5.3 liter V-8 engine has plenty of power, it rides good, The crew cab has plenty of space, The truck has an ample amount of bed space, It needs to be leveled out in the front. That's the only thing I don't like about 2wd version

    - Tyler L

    It was a good idea to buy my vehicle.

    2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

    The truth is great vehicle does not give problems of anything and very comfortable the bad thing that I do not like is the aux is loosened and you can not connect your music because it does not have Bluetooth in this model! I am very happy with my g m c.
