Cons: Duramax Diesel plus Allison tranny cost $7500
Advice: If you do a lot of towing get the diesel.It will pay for itselfI bought this truck with a pre conceived notion about American made trucks having owned a Toyota for 10 years with over 200 thousand miles I was a tough sell on quality.My wife and I have horses and I needed a tow vehicle and as nice as the Tundra is it ain't a tow vehicle.I pull a four horse trailer loaded at about 7,000#'s so I went with the Duramax diesel and this truck pulls that trailer like its not even back there and still gets 15 miles to the gallon!It gets 20 with no load and rides like a cadillac.I have not seen any quality issues so far and I could not be happier with this truck
Pros: Towing Capacity
Cons: No light under hood in engine compartment.
Advice: BUY IT!The GMC Sierra 2500 HD SLT, is one of the most incredible vehicles that I have ever tested. I have purchased mine, two months ago, and I am completely satisfied with every aspect of the vehicle. The most impressive feature of the truck, is its towing capacity. The vehicle can pull my 34ft trailer with next to no effort. I can hardly notice towing anything at all. It handles very good and it is an amazingly comfortable ride. Including the striking beauty of the vehicle, I give it 5 out of 5 stars. It is truly, amazing.
