The folks at Kelley Blue Book gave out their 5-Year Cost to Own Awards this week, and the GMC Sierra 1500 took home the hardware in the full-size pickup truck segment. The awards from the renowned and reliable review website go to vehicles that are predicted to cost their owners the least amount of money over the first five years of a vehicle’s life. Obviously, KBB thinks highly of the durability of the Sierra 1500, projecting lower fuel costs, less depreciation, and fewer risks of repair and service on the full-size truck.
“GMC puts the customer first, not only offering a great portfolio of trucks, but maintaining quality and dependability long after the vehicle is purchased,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC marketing. The Sierra 1500 fits perfectly into that agenda, with an EcoTec3 engine pushing the truck to higher performance and efficiency.
The award from Kelley Blue Book isn’t the first one the Sierra has won, either. It’s already been named a 2014 Best Buy by the Consumer’s Guide, and it received a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA. Come by Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC today to check out the award-laden Sierra for yourself!
