2007 GMC Sierra Review – Karl on Cars

Karl on Cars reviews the 2007 GMC Sierra and writes – ‘Our test car was an extended cab, SLT 4×4 model with the 6.0-liter Vortec V8 that makes 367 horsepower. The power deliver is smooth and the torque band is wide, but I did notice a few instances of the transmission not picking gears as quickly or effectively as it could have. That six-speed automatic can’t come too soon.’

A 4 speed auto in a brand new, $39,000 2007 model year truck? A truck that was JUST redesigned? You’ve got to be kidding. Four speed autos are ridiculously old-tech. And I don’t mean old, tried and true. I mean old, bad bad bad. Five speed autos are the minimum acceptable transmission in the full-size truck class. Especially when you have the balls to ask nearly $40 large for a pickemup truck. Yet another example of how good ol GM didn’t deliver.
