Ford has been in the market for providing impressive, tough trucks that can handle a lot. That doesn't mean the GMC Sierra 1500 lacks for power and performance to rival that of the Ford F-150. While the base V6 in the Sierra 1500 offers less horsepower but more pounds per feet of torque, the available V8 blows the Ford option out of the water. The Ford's V8 offers 395 horsepower and 400 pounds per feet of torque which pales in comparison to the GMC Sierra 1500's 420 horsepower and 460 pounds per feet of torque.

Getting a truck that manages to handle the challenges that come your way is important and that includes the convenience of using your cargo bed. The GMC Sierra 1500 offers a world-first six-function MultiPro™ Tailgate which opens in a variety of ways to give you access to your cargo bed with ease. The Ford F-150 doesn't offer this convenience so it's just a bit harder to make use of it. The GMC Sierra also offers best-in-class cargo box volume with 89.1 cubic feet of cargo space while the Ford only gets up to 77.4 cubic feet with its eight-foot cargo bed. The interior is also equally spacious with more front head and legroom in its crew cab than any other model in the lineup.


The similarities are a bit harder to find with the Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500. They offer comparable engine packages with outputs and performances that are exactly the same as the other model. On taking a closer look, you can discover exactly how the two are different by climbing inside and checking out what the interior has to offer. While the amenities and features are pretty identical, the GMC Sierra 1500 is built with higher-quality materials than the Chevrolet lineup, so that a base model Sierra 1500 is on the same level as the Silverado 1500's mid-level trim configuration.

 GMC SIERRA 1500 VS. RAM 1500

The RAM 1500 is one of the more luxurious options to choose from and it comes complete with powerful engine options that you might not be able to match anywhere else. That being said, the GMC Sierra 1500 does outperform the RAM 1500 when it's properly equipped. The 6.3-liter V8 handily outdoes the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 option with more horsepower and more torque. The GMC truck is controlled by a ten-speed automatic transmission while the RAM truck only offers an eight-speed automatic transmission. The GMC Sierra 1500 again offers the MultiPro™ Tailgate with multiple ways to access the cargo bed while the RAM model only offers the standard manual up/down tailgate.

The 2019 GMC Sierra is impressive and it certainly offers quite a bit over some of its popular rivals. If you're looking to find something that combines convenience with luxury and power, the GMC Sierra 1500 is just the truck we would recommend.
