Compare The Ram 1500 Versus The GMC Sierra 1500

Owning a truck is an amazing experience. Sometimes you need to have a truck, to haul your heavy-duty items or help you accomplish your day-to-day workload, but other times purchasing a truck is something that you just want to do. Trucks are a wonderful vehicle to have, but which one do you choose? Read below to find out the difference between the Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500 and then you can make your choice.

  1. Power, Towing, and Performance

    Both the Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500 are impressive powerhouses, but the Ram 1500 is slightly more powerful. Whether you are looking at the base models or the top trim levels, you will find that the Ram 1500 produces more horsepower and torque and has a higher towing and payload capacity than the comparable GMC Sierra 1500 models.

    For example: the Ram 1500 top trim level includes a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI that produces an amazing 395-horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The top trim level of the GMC Sierra 1500 is a 5.3-liter V8 Eco-Tech3 that produces 355-horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. Both of these engines are able to tow your camper, trailer, or boat, but the Ram 1500 will do so easier and with more power behind the wheel.

  2. Technology and Safety

    Every vehicle these days is packed with innovative and modernized infotainment and safety technology. The Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500 are no different. They each have multiple safety systems available, like the ParkSense Rear Park Assist System, Hill Start Assist, and ParkView Rear Back Up Camera in the Ram 1500, as well as many helpful infotainment programs. The GMC Sierra 1500 has an eight-inch customizable driver display that can be used for navigation, connecting with your smartphone, playing your music, and many other things. The Ram 1500 also has an available infotainment center, but theirs is 8.4-inches and can include SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link as well. 

  3. Available Special Options and Trim Levels

    Each model has multiple trim levels available, as well as plenty of superb packages. The Ram 1500 has a trim level for everyone, and every price range, starting with the base model, the Tradesman, and going up through nine trim levels to get to the Ram 1500 Laramie Limited.
