2012 GMC 1500 SLE' Expert Review: The 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 is a worthy
competitor among fresher rivals, bolstered by a wide range of body styles,
capable performance and a comfortable ride. Vehicle overview: Although the
current-generation GMC Sierra 1500 pickup debuted just four years ago, its more
recently redesigned rivals have topped it in a few respects. But this doesn't
mean the GMC is as stale as month-old bread. Far from it, actually. Thanks to
its core strengths, the 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 remains one of the top trucks in
the light-duty, full-size pickup segment. In terms of expected characteristics
such as towing capacity and a wide range of body style and trim level choices,
the Sierra 1500 is right up there with the competition. The Sierra provides a
smooth, quiet ride and comfortable seating, traits that make it ideal for long
road trips. The GMC isn't without faults, however. Compared to some of its
competition (notably Dodge and Toyota), the base "Work" trim's cabin looks
rather dull. And while other brands have stepped up the output of their base
engines over the years, the Sierra's V6 struggles to motivate such a large
truck. Lastly, maneuverability is hampered by a large turning radius.
Comparatively, the Ford F-150 has more innovative technology features
available, the Ram 1500 has a much nicer interior and smoother ride quality and
the Toyota Tundra is roomier in crew cab trim. Yet the 2012 GMC Sierra 1500
remains a solid choice in our book and deserves attention when cross-shopping
in this very competitive segment. 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 models: The 2012 GMC
Sierra 1500 is a half-ton full-size pickup that is offered in standard cab,
extended cab and crew cab body styles. Standard cabs and extended cabs are
available with either a standard 6-foot-6 bed or an 8-foot long bed. Crew cabs
only come with a short 5-foot-8 bed. Regular cabs can be had in base Work or
midlevel SLE trims, while the extended and crew cabs are also available in the
well-appointed SLT trim. An SL trim slots in between the Work and SLE models,
but is only available as a crew cab, as is the range-topping Denali. The Work
trim comes with air-conditioning (for extended- and crew-cab versions), a trip
computer, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar telematics, vinyl seat
upholstery, a 40/20/40-split front bench seat and a CD/MP3 stereo with an
auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio. The SL adds full power accessories,
keyless entry, cruise control, satellite radio and adjustable lumbar support
for the driver. The SLE trim adds seat upholstery in a more premium grade, a
lockable compartment with a power outlet built into the center cushion of the
split front seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a leather-wrapped
steering wheel. The premium SLT piles on chrome-clad alloy wheels, a premium
interior with a full center console and upgraded materials, a Bose audio system
(with iPod/USB input), leather seat upholstery, remote engine start, an
exclusive dash design with wood and metallic accents, 12-way
power-adjustable/heated front seats and rear audio controls. Sierra Denali
models trump the SLT with a unique powertrain, suspension tuning emphasizing
ride comfort, 20-inch cast-aluminum wheels, exterior styling enhancements, a
heated steering wheel and a turn-by-turn navigation feature for OnStar. Option
availability varies with trim levels and body styles. It includes several
towing packages, the Z71 Off-Road package (skid plates and an off-road
suspension), special regional packages, the All-Terrain package (similar to the
Z71 but with special interior and exterior enhancements) and the XFE (extra
fuel economy) trim variant for the rear-wheel-drive 5.3-liter V8 crew cab. The
XFE features aerodynamic enhancements and lightweight aluminum components that
improve fuel economy. Other options include 20- and 22-inch wheels, a rear
back-up camera, upgraded audio systems, Bluetooth, a navigation system with
real-time traffic, a rear-seat entertainment system, heated power-folding
outside mirrors, a sunroof, a power-sliding rear window, a cargo management
system, rear park sensors and ventilated front seats. An "EZ-Lift" tailgate is
also offered and requires only about half the effort to open and close compared
to the standard tailgate. 2012 Highlights: For 2012, the GMC Sierra 1500
receives only a few minor changes. Among them are an updated navigation system
(now hard-drive-based) and the inclusion of trailer sway control as part of the
stability control system. Performance & mpg The 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 is
available with four different engine choices. In the Work trim level, the
Sierra is powered by a standard 4.3-liter V6 that produces 195 horsepower and
260 pound-feet of torque. Buyers may upgrade to a 4.8-liter V8 that makes 302
hp and 305 lb-ft, or a 5.3-liter V8 that's good for 315 hp and 335 lb-ft. The
SLE trims will have one…Please Call 726-9100 or 330-8689 for Jeanette to
