Trucks are best known for their handy and capable personality. Need to haul a heavy load? Trucks are designed for that! Looking to tow a trailer? Can't beat the strength of a truck! Dying for some dirty, off-road fun? A truck is definitely capable of that! As the years go on, trucks are also continuing to become more attractive, comfortable and down-right enjoyable in all areas. For consumers in the market for a used truck, there is a huge list of options. But when looking for a truck that offers a smooth and quiet ride, high comfort, power under the hood, and true strength, one of the best choices is GMC's 2011 Sierra.
Impressive Trim Levels
As a full-size pickup truck, the 2017 Sierra impresses with power, strength and off-road capabilities. But what also draws consumers in is the available trim levels that are packed with a wide range of worthwhile equipment and features.
For those seeking a truck that's on the basic side, the Sierra's Work trim and SL trim are two good options. The Work trim comes with the bare necessities, but also includes some decent electronics, like a trip computer and CD/MP3 player with auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio.
The SL adds a bit more with the inclusion of:
Full power accessories
Mid-level trims, like the SLE and SLT, provide a much more upscale experience with premium cloth seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror and leather-wrapped steering wheel. The SLT piles on even more premium items, including:
Remote engine start
Full center console
Bose audio system with 6-disc CD changer
Powered and heated front seats
Rear audio controls
Generous Power and Strength
When consumers want a truck that provides generous power and strength, they find GMC's 2011 Sierra to be a satisfying choice. So where does the Sierra get its power and strength? The answer lies in its numerous powertrains. Depending on trim level, the Sierra comes with one of four engines. Here are some must-know stats about each:
- 4.3-liter V6: 195 hp/260 lb.-ft. torque
- 4.8-liter V8: 302 hp/305 lb.-ft. torque
- 5.3-liter V8: 315 hp/335 lb.-ft. torque
- 6.2-liter V8: 403 hp/417 lb.-ft. torque
The largest V8s come paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the 4.8-liter V8 and the V6 comes matched to a four-speed automatic.
An area that truly impresses consumers in the Sierra's with the 6.2-liter V8 is its speed and towing capabilities. From zero to 60 mph, this engine accelerated in just 6.6 seconds – a speedy time for a full-size pickup. When properly equipped, the Sierra can tow up to 10,700 pounds.
It's not always easy to find a truck that shows off an interior that is worthwhile. But the 2011 Sierra features an interior that definitely ranks high. Fit and finish are solid, seats are comfortable and storage space is adequate. When opting for higher trim levels, like the SLT and Denali, the interior provides some significant upgrades, like a unique dash and door panels, full center console, and attractive wood grain and metallic accents. Consumers also like the versatility of the Sierra. One feature, in particular, are the rear seat cushions that flip up – a perk that creates a nearly-flat load floor.
With all of the newest advanced safety systems on the market in brand-new vehicles, it can be hard to know whether safety is as good in a vehicle that is used – but it definitely is. The 2011 Sierra comes with all of the essential safety equipment, including:
Front, side and side curtain airbags
The Sierra also boasts top marks in safety crash testing in areas such as frontal-offset protection and frontal collision protection.
