GMC Sierra 1500SLE 4Wd

Ok I've committed myself to a new truck.
I will be picking this up this Friday.
Still not sure on the color choice..........
Opions?????

- Onyx Black
- Sonoma Red Metallic
- Mocha Steel metallic
- Heritage Blue Metallic

I'm leaning towards the Sonoma Red metallic.

(not from this dealership)



My money but welcome to suggestions.

Not sure what GMC uses, but my new ford with MY Sync is well worth the money.

And the blue looks terrific on those trucks. I'll never go to any other color.

White is the easiest color to keep clean especially in the winter

I like the sonoma red metallic. Cograts on the new truck. I just picked up my new truck Monday. Brand new Dodge Ram Big Horn Edition. Hemi 4x4 Quad Cab in metallic silver.

I like the Mocha. Are you coming to Washington PA for a truck? Not sure where you're from, but figured there had to be a closer GMC dealer then Budd Baer.

No I'm in Michigan. I posted that it wasn't from that dealership. Just a visual for the color.

A focus is a far cry from a pick-up. The wife works at the GM dealership so Ford is definately a no go.

I wasn't saying buy a ford.....but was reccomending you look into getting the same type of system that ford has with "My Sync" that comes in the GMC. Not sure what they call it.

I understand where you were coming from David. I don't think the other guy understood though. This truck has a similiar link system.

Picked the Truck up last Friday. Weather has sucked balls since. Will post up a real pic after the sun comes out and she's respectable.

I'm not sure what it is. Likely a personal thing.... but, I find it hard to love a truck in any other color than black. (tasteful chrome accents look great on it).

I VERY UNFORTUNATELY am still driving the goat. (Thank GOD for mild weather so far). If anyone knows of a a reasonably priced (used) Full Size truck for sale. PM me!

Good luck on that one. 2011 full sized trucks are going for $27k.

That's because it isn't white. Everything else look really dirty all the time in the winter.
