    The only thing i don't like is the 21,000 K on the 09,other than that i like the z71 ,it has more options like the aluminum rims,better instrument panel,and doesn't have that floor shift which will get in the way with a passenger in the middle.I have that seat console with the 3 drink holder and i love it.Go with the z71 ,i think you will be pleased that you did.

    I will agree with everyone else the 09 is a better option. Better equipment pkg, stronger engine, and yeah I dig the color too.

    I'll agree with everyone else mainly because of the 5.3L. The only thing I'd consider for the 2010 is if you have access to E85 (ethanol) flex fuel. I run my 09 Sierra on it and like it. I only run 20 miles per day and the loss in mileage is minimal, while the price is a good 50 cents cheaper on average.

    Ditto on the Z71.... 5.3L is a power house, and the trim package makes for a lot more ammenities.. The 21K isnt to bad since ive seen a few with another 0 on the end and more... Good solid motor.. And yeah Flex fuel rocks for people that have it close. Its nearly 70cents cheaper here......
