New GMC Sierra a tougher, more sophisticated truck

(Continued)

It has all the obligatory tech upgrades of new cars, including GM's latest IntelliLink system with a big digital touchscreen and iPhone-style icon layout. And the cabin sets a new standard for full-size trucks, with lots of soft materials and the kind of tight construction and classy finishes that used to be the exclusive domain of passenger cars.

It's hard to find much to complain about in a brilliantly re-engineered pickup, but I do think it could benefit from a more envelope-pushing body style. The squared-off shape just doesn't look as progressive as the rest of the truck feels.

Overall, though, GMC has done something magical with the new Sierra. It's a truck that brings a soft, comfortable touch to big, tough jobs, and that's a fun thing to experience from the driver's seat.
