The 4.8-liter V8 comes with a four-speed automatic transmission; the 5.8-liter V8 gets a six-speed automatic transmission.
What you'll find with the Sierra SLE engines is that they are both very capable in power and strength. The 4.8-liter V8 delivers solid power, while the 5.3-liter V8 makes the Sierra even more powerful with increased strength – two elements that make it a true muscle truck.
