2009 GMC Sierra – Car Pro Review

The new 2009 GMC Sierra half ton All-Terrain is a really nice truck. The bold in-your-face grill makes everyone stand up and notice this beauty. I found the truck to be spacious inside and capable for whatever you need in a truck.

My test truck was the full-four door version and was loaded, but not too loaded. I suspect this truck is equipped like most that will be sold…it had navigation system, but no moon-roof. The 2009 I had sported a beautiful leather interior and had really sharp chrome wheels to set off the black exterior and gray interior.

This year you can get a 6-speed automatic which this truck had and it delivered over 20 miles per gallon without great effort on my part. In town, I got in excess of 15 which is good considering the power of the big 6.0 V8 which boasts almost 350 horses. The Denali version offers a 6.2 V8 which will give you over 400 horses. I reviewed the Denali truck last year and LOVED it.

GMC has done a great job of emerging as the “luxury” version of the GM truck line. It has great residual values, which means the lease payments are super and it holds its resale value very well.

    This being 2013 what could I expect to pay for a 2009 GMC Sierra 1/2 T ?

      Ed, I’m sorry, no way for me to know. They can vary greatly depending on equipment, mileage, condition, etc. There could be as much as $10000 difference between a down the line one, and a loaded Denali.

      I wish I could be of more help.

    I don’t know about the 2009 and future GMC Sierra’s. I bought a 2008 GMC Sierra new in December 2009. I maintained it, changed the oil whenever onstar told me to, and most of the miles were highway miles. Now, June, 2015, I am having to have a head job (cylinder 8 misfiring) done at 63,000 miles. I cannot be purchasing vehicles where I will be redoing an engine at 60k miles.

      That is unusual for sure, and can happen with any vehicle. I would not be concerned about getting another one, generally they have been very good. Sorry this happened to you!
