Default Opinions on a buy?

Hey all, new guy here.

I have a 2009 F150 XLT that is breaking me. I am looking to get rid of it and am looking at a 2011 Sierra. It has 133K, 4.8L Nevada edition. Can I get some opinions and info on what is good or bad and what to expect. I have owned Sierras in the past, but fell to the dark side. Below is a link to the truck. Price is kind of irrelevant as we are upside down on the current truck.

Thank you for any advice or info you can give me.

I currently own a 2012 Sierra with the 4.8L. It's a basic work truck package. Other than a transmission issue at 6K miles I have not had any significant problems with it. The 4 wheel drive is kind of noisy, has been since new, GMC says it's normal. Currently have 105K on it.

Two cons I will say that consistently come up, there are times that the 4.8L feels under powered for the truck. If your 2009 Ford is a crew cab, you will be sorely disappointed in the rear seat room of the GMC.

Good luck if you decide to go for the deal.

Thank you for your reply. I just have a supercab, so I don't think they will be a huge difference there.

I am only towing a Uhaul trailer a few times a year, so they power should be adequate.

I appreciate the info.
