This 1998 GMC Sierra 1500 4×4 has been treated with the right kind of respect over its two-owner life thus far
It has all the right features, from fuel-injected V8 power to a loaded interior. And you’ll even see the right investments to keep this looking good and truly useful. So it’s nice to see a practical and loaded extended cab pickup presented with good all-around respect.
This truck really has all the best features to make a great first impression. It has a tall 4×4 stance, premium extended cab, and the curvaceous sportside bed. This has only averaged about 3k miles annually over its two-owner life thus far. Not only does it have a well-respected style, but there have also been good investments to keep it looking sharp. The factory-correct Dark Toreador Red was given a later respray. It has a clean look and a detailed style – right down to the refreshed Z71 decals. While they were updating this pickup, they also gave it polished handles and later-style 17-inch alloys. It gives this pickup distinction without being too boisterous. But a modern classic 4×4 is also a versatile machine, and so this one doesn’t shy away from work. The Tuffliner full liner and polished metal tops give the bed a clean look and full protection when carrying loads. And there’s a proper trailer hitch for the larger jobs or just towing the boat.
The interior is both premium and preserved. The velour seating is quite comfy, and the door panels, dash, and carpets are exceptional. This is an extended cab from the era when they started to give you a half door on the passenger side. So it’s much easier to share the experience with up to four more family and friends. But the driver is always the priority. That’s why you have front bucket seats, and yours power adjusts to the ideal long-haul comfort position. It’s also loaded with all the best features, like power windows, power locks, power mirrors, air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, cruise control, a tilt steering column, and a premium AM/FM/cassette stereo. You also have both an overhead console and an armrest center console.
One of the big reasons you want a more modern classic pickup is the driving experience. After all, modern fuel-injected power on the 5.7-liter V8 is an advantage we all want. Plus, this newer generation gives you an independent front suspension on the 4×4 drivetrain. That means you still get the go-anywhere prowess, but when you’re just riding in the city, this is much more comfortable than other classic 4x4s. Add in power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, and this Sierra is a fantastic anytime cruising pickup.
