The 2016 GMC sierra will not disappoint.

2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

The 2016 GMC sierra is the best pickup truck I have owned. It is luxurious and comfortable, nice touch points throughout the cabin. Makes a bold statement on the road. The infotainment is super easy to use and navigate. The 5.3l v8 has ample power to make towing our travel trailer a breeze. The integrated trailer brake works like a charm. Descent control helps slow the truck down on steep declines. Cylinder deactivation system works seem less to help you achieve better mileage. Overall the truck has been amazing to me and the family and maintenance is a breeze. I would buy another sierra in the future.

An interesting detail is the touch screen XM radio.

2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

The comfort is pretty good and the touch screen radio is a plus. The v8 engine is strong but the truck drives quiet. The truck has a nice exterior and lights. Equipped with XM radio. The truck's technology is great. The truck is reliable I have had no issues with it and the dealership offers free service and wash when you take it in. The truck is nice for it being a sle package.

Roach coach 16 GMC number 1.

2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

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!!

16 GMC sierra good, reliable, vehicle.

2016 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

It has been a very reliable vehicle so far. It is very strong for a 1500 pulling our 29 ft camper with ease. The only problems we have had is sometimes when we hit the gas, the rpms go up but the truck stalls. We have taken it to the dealership and they say nothing is wrong with it.
