GMC Sierra 1500

Expert Rating

2.65 (Fair)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

But don't think that GM is euthanizing their golden goose just yet. The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 is all new, and the Sierra continues to stand firmly apart from it's also all-new cheaper twin. The range-topping Denali trim returns to define the GMC experience, and buyers will also find new and exclusive features that convincingly bolster the Sierra's claim of being the leader of the premium truck segment.
