It is expensive, does not get good mpg.

The best part about this truck is the heated and cooled seats with he heated steering wheel. I just towed my parents 23 foot boat 3. 5 hrs home from the lake and it pulled amazing couldn't even tell it was back there. I am not a fan of the dome lighting, when it is dark out and you turn the dome lights on it is bright but it has a lot of shadows it needs to have light on the floor.

2016 GMC sierra Denali 1500. The pick up truck with great comfort.

I have a GMC sierra Denali and love all the features. GMC is a reliable brand that is been around as long as ford. A pick up truck can feel big and bulky but the sierra is quite comfortable with 3 way adjustable seats, adjustable foot pedals, heating and cooling seats. The dual ac system allows driver and passenger to modify their own temperature.

Roach coach 16 GMC number 1.

2016 GMC sierra sle crew cab. It has great performance, as long as you are not a race car driver. I added a suicide knob, weathertech floor mats, power running boards, a sprayed in bedliner, a bed divider, and an undercover bed topper. As long as you make all your service appointments and keep gas in it, you'll have no problems!!
