Hi folks, registered to ask the experts this question. I’m looking to upgrade my truck. I do not need a V8 as I never tow. I do need a full size because of hauling my family and stuff for my wife’s business, definitely can not afford above an SLE Sierra or an RST Silverado.
Im intrigued by the 2.7L turbo engine, but hate the chrome on the LT. That puts me into a custom or an RST, I honestly like the look of both. Or into a base Sierra vs SLE Sierra. Pricing seems to be about $41k for a 4.3L V6 custom/Sierra crew and $48k for a 2.7L V4 RST/SLE crew. Slight differences between the GMC or Chevy variants.
If MPG and reliability are the most important, which would you go for and why?
Further review, Sierra may be out as there are no base models, or 2.7L turbo models within 400 miles of me, V8 only available.
