2001 GMC Sierra 1500HD Crew Cab 4WD

GMC Sierra 1500HD Crew Cab

Can a half-ton working-persons' truck show some class? Oh yeah. All it takes is a beefy 6.0 liter V8 outputting 325 horsepower and an impressive 370 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm. Combine that with a towing capacity of a mere 8,700 pounds and you've got the brawn needed to get the work done.

GMC Sierra 1500HD Crew Cab On the beauty side, start with clean, uncomplicated exterior styling then add a plush cabin with all the luxurious features you'd expect in an upper end SUV: leather seats, key-less entry, fog lights built-in to the fascia, good sound system, and 17-inch wheels. As we transported the four past champions of the Casa Jackson Memorial Tournament this week, we heard plenty of praise for this truck - most notably the appreciation of the legroom and comfort of the 2nd seat in the crew cab. We were also impressed with its light and precise steering, solid handling, superb brakes, and gentle ride. Looks like a good truck just got better!
