I was checking out the new 2014 GM trucks coming out and I had to laugh. The GMC website kept talking of the new innovations and setting the standard! What a joke, it is obvious there R&D consisted of buying a F150 and copying it. Here are some the comments.
"Take one look inside the all-new 2014 GMC Sierra and you’ll see clearly why this is the new standard in truck interiors."
"Sierra’s all-new EcoTec3 engines are paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission". Wow they now have a 6 speed, way to catch up with everyone else. EcoTec....hmmm naming sounds familiar!
"Available Hill Descent Control allows for a controlled descent in rough terrain without use of the brake pedal"
"Available Automatic Locking Rear Differential for increased traction"
"Driver Shift Control lets you shift gears up and down with the tap of the shift selector"
That's innovative, Ford has had that for awhile...good try though.
"The available 8” Color Touch radio with Intellilink5 lets you customize your media and connect to your world."
Wow they really pushed the envelope on this one, a 8 inch touch scree in the center stack! That won't sell, oh wait F150 already has it!
Lastly tell me if this gauge cluster looks familiar!
Seems to me GM had the chance to really be innovative and one up Ford but instead decided to just catch up to what the standard is, and this is why I traded my GMC in for the F150 I have and I am hooked.
