By now, you're probably like many Columbia drivers that have seen the ads on television proclaiming the 2011 GMC Sierra to be the best Sierra ever. When GMC says it, they aren't kidding--Columbia hasn't seen a Sierra with this level of capability, efficiency, refinement, and convenience ever before!
With everyone concerned about the recent spike in gas prices, GMC Sierra owners have less to worry about. The available XFE (Xtra Fuel Economy) Sierra 1500 makes a few barely-noticeable changes to Sierra's professional-grade changes to boost highway fuel economy to 22 miles per gallon. The soft tonneau cover and lower front air dam improve Sierra's aerodynamics, while aluminum lower control arms wheels (spare included) help reduce mass. Motivated by the popular 5.3L V8 flex-fuel engine, Sierra XFE can travel up to 551 miles on a tank of gas--enough to travel from Columbia to Sarasota, Florida without filling up.
For Columbia drivers that drive through town often, a popular choice is the GMC Sierra Hybrid. The only two-mode hybrid pickup truck design on the market today, Sierra Hybrid uses a battery pack underneath the rear seat to drive the truck at low speeds around town and allow the 6.0L Vortec V8 to come to a stop when you're at a red light. Combined with Active Fuel Management that allows Sierra Hybrid to run on four of its eight cylinders under lighter loads, the net result is an impressive 20 miles per gallon in the city according to EPA estimates--a 53% improvement over the city fuel economy of a Sierra 1500 with the available 6.2L V8. Outside of a couple of badges though, it's all GMC Sierra with 332 horsepower available from the engine, over 1,500 pounds of payload capacity, and up to 6100 pounds of trailering capacity. When faced with these impressive feats, it's no suprise that Columbia truck owners love GMC Sierra.
Of course, Columbia truck shoppers love GMC Sierra for more than just great fuel economy. Sierra's new Power Tech Package offers the most popular options on the mid-range SLE model with a total package savings of $1,495. Columbia shoppers love dual-zone climate control, allowing the driver and front passenger to dial in their own preferred temperatures and let the system adjust the fans accordingly. They're also pretty big fans of the 5.3L V8, easily the most popular engine choice for Sierra owners, the automatic locking rear differential, and the 17" 6-lug aluminum wheels that give Sierra Power Tech just the right amount of styling. Inside, the 6-speaker sound system offers your choice of XM Satellite Radio, AM/FM terrestrial radio, compact discs, an aux-in jack, and a USB port for playing MP3s from your flash drive or MP3 player.
