GMC Sierra 1500 vs Ford F-150 & Ram 1500

How does the GMC Sierra 1500 Stack up to the Ford F-150 and the Ram 1500?

The truck market has become one of the most popular segments of vehicles in the last few years. There has been a trend away from buying cars, and now people are interested in buying trucks and SUVs. It doesn't matter if you are looking for your first truck or your 50th truck, NeSmith Chevrolet Buick GMC will help you find the best truck for your needs in Jesup.

The most popular trucks for Hinesville motorists come from the big three automakers: Ford, Ram, and GMC. Ford makes the F-150, which has a lot of heritage in its name, but it needs an update compared to the other two trucks. The Ram is more focused on technology and luxury, while the GMC Sierra is a good mixture of luxury and capability. Customizing your truck can be one of the most daunting tasks you can undertake. To make sure you are getting all the options you need, you should visit our team in Jesup.

GMC Sierra 1500 vs. Ford F-150

Ford's lineup has six engines to choose from, and most of them are very similar in that they focus on getting good fuel economy rather than all-out power. We find their engine lineup to be redundant, as even though you have six options, only three engines make sense to put into a vehicle. If you want a diesel engine, the F-150 offers a 3.0L power stroke. If you want maxed-out fuel economy, there is a 2.7L EcoBoost engine, and if you want power, then you can choose a 3.5L EcoBoost engine. It’s true that you can choose between six engines on the Ford F-150, but the GMC truck offers you so much more.

When it’s time to compare trucks for your adventures in and around Fort Stewart, we think you’ll be pleased with the GMC Sierra 1500. Unlike the Ford truck, the new Sierra 1500 features a MultiPro tailgate that enables you to configure the tailgate to act as a bed extender, work surface, entry step, and more. The new GMC Sierra 1500 also features Teen Driver technology that allows you to set guidelines for how the truck is driven by alternate drivers, and you’ll even receive detailed information about how your truck gets driven in your absence. The Ford does not offer either helpful feature on any trim model.

GMC Sierra 1500 vs. Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 offers a sensible lineup of three engines to choose from, but it also has seven trims you can consider. Variety may be the spice of life, but if we are being honest, there doesn't seem to be much difference between most of these trim levels in the new Ram 1500. Most of these trims could just be appearance packages on a semi-luxury model and that would make their lineup a whole lot easier to understand. For instance, they have a cowboy-themed Laramie Longhorn trim that does give the interior a nice aesthetic. They also have the Lone Star trim which does a similar thing, but with not as nice materials. Here in the Brunswick area, we do enjoy a good country theme, but it feels like Ram was making minor differences in trim levels and calling a whole new vehicle.

If you want to step up to a new and improved hauling experience, then we recommend that you give the Sierra 1500 another look. The Sierra 1500 lineup is as unique in its layout as it is easy to understand what GMC wanted each of these trims to be focused on. Any trim that has SL in the name is supposed to be a good work truck. The AT4 trim is meant for people that want to do some off-roading in Jesup, and the Denali trim is the all-out luxury trim of the bunch. GMC was smart in making each model distinct and have a specific purpose. Several engines can only be had on certain trim levels because those trucks are supposed to work hard for you. For example, the engine choices for the AT4 trim are two high displacements V8s. This will give you enough horsepower and torque to power through any terrain that gets in your way. The Denali also has these engines to choose from, with smooth and linear power delivery that make up the truck’s signature luxury ride quality.

 

Towing Made Easy in the GMC Sierra 1500

In addition to offering more technology and configurations than the competition, the GMC truck features a ProGrade Trailering system that makes every tow a simpler and more convenient process. You’ll get an auto electric parking brake assist feature and an integrated trailer brake controller that give you more control of your vehicle. You’ll also get hitch area lighting and a system that performs hitch guidance with hitch view through your Sierra 1500’s rear vision camera. Also unlike the Ram 1500 and the Ford F-150, the GMC truck features a Trailering App that adds safety and confidence to your towing experience.

We know that when it comes to building your dream truck, there are many options you can choose from. If you stop by our showroom, our expert staff will be able to help you narrow down your search to the brand and model that best fits your needs. All these trucks are capable and can accomplish most tasks that you will ask them to do. The question is how well can you customize them for the tasks you need to get done? Stop by NeSmith Chevrolet Buick GMC if you want to get hands-on and take these trucks out for a drive.
