2021 Ram 1500 vs 2021 GMC Sierra 1500
Between the 2021 Ram 1500 and the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 trucks, which gives you the performance and other perks you need? To speed up your decision for Clinton, Adrian, and Tecumseh, Michigan, tows, hauls, and trips, we’ve designed this dual rundown.
LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) of Clinton guides you through both trucks here and can demonstrate the Ram’s features at our showroom.
Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500 Performance
From its standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine with eTorque, the Ram 1500 produces 305 horsepower, accompanied by the TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission. If you’re looking for the ultimate best-in-class torque, the available 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel engine produces 480 lb-ft. Great gas mileage comes along for the ride by reaching an EPA-estimated 20 city/25 highway MPG with 4×2 capability.
Choose the 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine, and the GMC Sierra produces 285 horsepower, paired with the 6-speed automatic transmission. For its best torque stats, its 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine produces 460 lb-ft. You’ll reach an EPA-estimated 16 city/21 highway MPG in the Sierra as well with the former engine set-up.
Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500 Towing Capacity
Consider how much you plan to load on your truck. With the Ram, it can tow up to 12,750 pounds when using the 5.7L engine with eTorque hybrid technology. At its best, the GMC tows a maximum capacity of 11,800 pounds.
Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500 Technology
The Ram 1500 towers over the GMC Sierra as far as technology options go. In the Ram, you’ll enjoy the enormous and vibrant, available Uconnect® 12.0-inch touchscreen with Navigation. The largest you can get in the GMC spans only 8 inches with the Premium GMC Infotainment System with Navigation.
Behind the wheel, you’ll be able to keep up with your pickup’s operations. A 7-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display comes in the Ram while the GMC only offers the 4.2-inch Driver Information Center. Both provide you with the option to add the Head-Up Display to get a quick glimpse at this information on your windshield.
True music lovers will clamor for the available Harman Kardon® Premium Sound system that includes 19 speakers, placed in the most strategic spots of the Ram. With the GMC, the optional Bose® Premium Sound System comes with a mere 7 speakers, which cannot funnel all the sound you’ll need during a noisy, tough haul.
Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500 Storage
Sure, you get multiple areas within your trucks to store necessary items. Both come with several compartments spaced in nooks and crannies around the truck.
Despite this, the Ram blows you over with even more space outside of your truck bed. On either side, with the addition of the RamBox® Cargo Management System, you’ll find two storage bins that can be locked and kept out of the elements. They also feature drainage holes to store dry or wet equipment and materials inside. The GMC does not have anything like this.
Choose Between the 2021 Ram 1500 vs 2021 GMC Sierra 1500
If you need standard performance and perks, the 2021 Ram 1500 overrides the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500. For your jobs across Clinton, Adrian, and Tecumseh, you can trust in the versatility of the Ram.
