My 2014 all terrain review by Jason B on 10/28/2013. Trim: 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Crew Cab 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Like the look of the truck and some of the features inside the cabin. The Sierra is very quiet but does have a rattle in the instrument cluster that is driving me crazy. I traded a 2011 f150 platinum ecoboost which I liked very much! So far I have had my Sierra for 2 months and miss my ecoboost there is no comparison to the low end torque that you get from the ecoboost. i should have waited for the 6.2 v8 but I wanted the fuel economy.
Cons: Fuel economy, rattle in the dash, lack of rear vent for climate. HP and torque are better than the old 5.3 but dont hold a candle to the F150's ecoboost (will be trading for the redesigned f150 or the atlas in 2015) I have got 16 in town but on our first trip best hwy mpg i got was 15.6mpg
Overall review: I like certain things about this truck and there are some things that i dont care for but dont get me wrong it is a nice truck but they really have missed the boat with the power train and a few small things. The cab is bigger but still not as big as the ford but the seats in the gmc are more comfortable. The fit and finish is good and the materials they are using are great. The new screen and the Nav are a huge improvement. I think overall knowing how nice the F150 is and how awesome the ecoboost is has clouded my opinion of the new gmc and I think even with a dated body stlye the ford is still the better truck.. I dont mind driving it but I will be foaming at the mouth when ford does their redesign on the F150
