The 2009 GMC Sierra Hybrid boasts top scores from both of the major crash-test authorities, as well as a commendable list of safety features. It's hard to find a safer pickup truck on the road.

As part of its safety research, TheCarConnection.com gathered crash-test ratings for the 2009 GMC Sierra Hybrid from both NHTSA and the IIHS, the two primary testing agencies in the United States. The GMC Sierra Hybrid excelled in tests with both agencies, earning the IIHS's highest possible rating, "good," in the frontal offset impact category. No IIHS data is available for side impacts. In NHTSA testing, the 2009 GMC Sierra Hybrid earned perfect five-star ratings for both the driver- and passenger-side front impact tests. The GMC Sierra Hybrid also earned five stars for side impact.

In addition to its very strong crash-test ratings, the 2009 GMC Sierra Hybrid pickup features all the latest safety equipment you'd expect on a GM truck. Cars.com reports that, on the GMC Sierra Hybrid, "four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, traction control and an electronic stability system are standard, as are side curtain airbags for both rows of seats." The Detroit News mentions that "electronic stability control and OnStar" are both standard, while J.D. Power reviewers state that a "tire-pressure monitor" is also included on the base GMC Sierra Hybrid.

Another safety positive for the 2009 GMC Sierra Hybrid is the surprisingly good visibility, especially for a pickup. ConsumerGuide reports that "visibility is generally good," but a few trouble spots exist toward the rear. Fortunately, J.D. Power says "a rearview camera will also be available" on the GMC Sierra Hybrid to help drivers cope with those blind spots when reversing.

Conclusion

The 2009 GMC Sierra Hybrid provides the same impressive protection as GM’s other full-size pickups.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
