$9,980 good price?

I was driving by my local Chevy dealer today and they had a white step side GMC truck 1/2 ton.. I think 2009 yr. They had it posted for $9,980... I thought... dang! that is a good price.

What do you think? My guess is it must have a V6 engine for that price.

I don't care what it's called.... awd is the same as 4x4 TO Me.

assuming it's a v6 and only 2wd, I wouldn't....no point in getting a truck unless it's AWD. However I live in PA so that's how I think of trucks.

The term four-wheel drive describes truck-like vehicles that may allow the driver to manually switch (sometimes with an automatic option) between two-wheel drive mode (if available) for streets and four-wheel drive mode for low traction conditions such as ice, mud, snow, slippery surfaces, or loose gravel.[2]
All-wheel drive (AWD) is often used to describe a "full time" 4WD that may be used on dry pavement without destroying the drivetrain, although the term may be abused when marketing a vehicle.[3] AWD can be used on dry pavement because it employs a center differential, which allows each tire to rotate at a different speed. ("Full-Time" 4WD can be disengaged and the center differential can be locked, essentially turning it into regular 4WD. On the other hand, AWD cannot be disengaged and the center differential cannot be locked.[4][5]) This eliminates driveline binding, wheel hop, and other driveline issues associated with the use of 4WD on dry pavement. With vehicles with more than four wheels, AWD means all wheels drive the vehicle, to varying degrees of engagement, while 4WD means only four of the wheels drive the vehicle continuously.
Identical drivetrain systems are commonly marketed under different names for upmarket and downmarket branding and, conversely, different drivetrain systems are commonly marketed under the same name for brand uniformity. Audi's quattro, Mercedes-Benz's 4Matic, BMW with the xDrive, and Volkswagen's 4motion, for example, can mean either an automatically-engaging "on-demand" system with a Haldex Traction clutch, or a continuously-operating permanent 4WD system with a Torsen (torque-sensing) differential.

I partially agree with Adam though. It depends on what options the truck is equipped with.

For a V8, I'd say go for it.

Trucks should have V8s, always.

However I live in PA where people actually use their trucks for hauling so IDK.

What?!
What does living in PA have to do with people using their trucks?

I live in CA and me and my dad use his truck for hauling towing and commuting..

My neighbor across the street uses his '09 for his construction job and hauls a couple thousand pounds worth of tools everyday.
