TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 GMC Sierra covers all the essential pickup-truck bases, even the green one. The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado offer strong engines and comfortable interiors to complement impressive toughness and towing/hauling ratings, while the Hybrid model is the most fuel-efficient big pickup on the market.
