Ram 1500

Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500: Performance

When you know what type of performance you can get, you can discover which truck works with your needs. The Ram 1500 comes standard with a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque, which generates 305 horsepower.

This engine, along with all Ram 1500 engines, works with the TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission. To streamline any towing job, the available 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine generates a best-in-class 480 lb-ft of torque.

One of your GMC engines, the 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I6 engine, generates 277 horsepower. To get the maximum GMC torque, go for the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine. It generates 460 lb-ft of torque.

Great gas mileage with your Ram can be found with the standard 4×2 drivetrain. It achieves an EPA-estimated 20 city/25 highway MPG. For GMC fans, the best you can get will achieve an EPA-estimated 19 city/22 highway MPG.

Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500: Towing Capacity

Check your truck. How much weight can it carry and is it enough for you? With the Ram truck’s available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque technology, you can tow a maximum of 12,750 pounds when properly equipped. The GMC tows up to 11,200 pounds with the available 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine.


Ram 1500

Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500: Technology

Southeastern Michigan drivers looking for heft and luxury inside your cabin, turn your gaze toward the Ram 1500. In the center of the dashboard, you can use the available Uconnect® 5C 12-inch touchscreen and monitor your truck on the 7-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display.

With the GMC Sierra 1500, you get a much smaller screen for viewing your apps and monitoring your pickup’s operations. Your dashboard can contain an available 8-inch Premium GMC Infotainment System with Navigation. Behind the wheel, you’ll see a 4.2-inch Driver Information Center display.

The luxury of the Ram interior continues with the audio system. Opt for the Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System, which includes 19 speakers dotting every corner of your truck for an exhilarating audio experience.

Unfortunately, in the Sierra 1500, you do not get half the speakers offered in the Ram. The GMC offers an available 12-speaker Bose® Premium Sound System.

Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500: Storage

One great item you’ll love about the Ram shows up on either side of the truck bed. The optional RamBox® Cargo Management System cannot be beat—with its unique characteristics and extra space.

You can store wet or dry gear in these spacious bins, as they contain drain holes to remove any liquid. They come with locks and weatherproofing, so the materials you tuck into these compartments stay out of the elements.

No comparable item appears in the GMC Sierra 1500.
