About GMC Sierra
According to critics, the 2010 Sierra 1500 is a well-rounded truck with a comfortable, refined ride and enough power for nearly any task. Few reviewers tested the base V6 and smallest 4.8-liter V8 engines, but those who did said they have enough power for work truck applications, though some said the base engine needs more power. Most, on the other hand, preferred the two larger available V8 engines, claiming they make the Sierra feel light on its feet. In fact, a Sierra with the 5.3-liter V8 gets better fuel economy than the V6 model, with 15/21 mpg city/highway versus 15/20 mpg with the V6. These ratings are typical for the class. With the 6.2-liter V8, the Sierra can tow up to 10,700 pounds.
The Sierra’s cab was praised by reviewers for its fit and finish. A regular cab model can seat three people, while extended and crew cab models can seat up to six. The front seats were rated as comfortable and supportive by the majority of reviewers. Most reviewers agreed that the extended cab’s back seats aren’t as spacious or comfortable as those in the crew cab, but that adults will be fine for short trips back there. The base trim, like most full-size pickups, has few notable standard features. Bluetooth, a USB port, a Bose stereo with a CD changer, navigation, leather seats, front heated and ventilated power-adjustable seats, a heated steering wheel, a backup camera, a power sunroof, and a back-seat entertainment system were all available on higher trims and in option packages.
The cost of insuring a GMC Sierra 1500 is determined by a number of factors, including your deductible, the level of coverage desired, and the type of insurance selected. Your age, gender, location, credit score, and driving record can all influence your insurance rates. To find the best policy for you, consult our car insurance guide.
