The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 GMC Sierra covers all the essential pickup-truck bases, even the green one. The 2011 Nissan Titan performs well and has a comfortable interior, but its appeal is more limited than the full-line full-size trucks from the Big Three and Toyota.
