How Does the GMC Sierra Compare to Other Vehicles?

GMC Sierra Milton

Compare the 2016 GMC Sierra to other full-size pickup trucks to find out why Milton drivers keep choosing this model. The GMC Sierra is available in numerous configurations and was completely redesigned just a few years ago.

GMC Sierra: Light or Heavy Duty

The 2016 GMC Sierra is one of the full-size pickup models available in varying capacities. You can pick from the Sierra 1500, Sierra 2500HD, and Sierra 3500HD. The Dodge Ram and Ford F-150 models offer comparable variations. However, Toyota and Nissan only have light-duty models in the form of the Tundra and Titan, respectively. This gives the GMC Sierra an advantage over those models.

Sierra Base Engine

In pickups like the GMC Sierra, engine power is incredibly important since it correlates with capability. The Sierra comes standard with a 5.3-liter V8 engine, generating 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, beating multiple competitors. By comparison, both the Ford F-150 and the Ram 1500 come standard with V6 engines. They only offer V8s as an upgrade, costing you more money. As such, it should come as no surprise that neither of these vehicles is able to match the engine output of the Sierra. The F-150 only has 325 horsepower; the Ram 1500 does even worse with 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet.


To make the GMC Sierra an even better choice, it offers multiple features at lower trim levels than the competition. For example, Remote Engine Start is standard. This is an optional upgrade in the base Ford F-150 or Dodge Ram 1500. The 2016 GMC Sierra also comes standard with Daytime Running Lamps, which the Dodge Ram doesn’t. The 2016 GMC Sierra also has an in-vehicle service for communications and assistance, which isn’t even available on the Ford F-150.
