2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab SLT Review: The Best Half Ton GM Truck Ever
I should make a few things clear before getting into why I think that the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Crew Cab that General Motors has ever sold. This Sierra is the first of the new GM half ton trucks that I have gotten to spend any time in and while I have driven the new Silverado, it was only for a short time in a very controlled environment. I don’t mean to upset Silverado owners by suggesting that the Sierra is the better half ton truck, but in my time spent with both trucks, I was more impressed with the interior quality of the Sierra along with the high tech headlight setup that I believe is the better looking of the two new trucks.
More importantly, I admit that I have long been a critic of General Motors half ton truck program. I understand that the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra are among the bestselling trucks in America, but Ive had extensive seat time in all of the Detroit half ton trucks over the past few years and Ive always found that the Ford F150 and the Ram 1500 were leaps and bounds better than the comparably equipped Silverado or Sierra. Frankly speaking, I have spent the last few years wondering why people buy the Chevy and GMC pickups because the competition from Ford and Ram were just that great. With the introduction of the 2014 Sierra, I no longer will question those folks who buy new General Motors half ton pickups as all of the complaints that I’ve had over the past half decade or so have been addressed in a big way.
