Many buyers in the market for a new or used pickup truck have likely come across the GMC Sierra in their search for a new workhorse, and on the surface, it can be difficult to understand why this particular model isn’t more popular. With steady, reliable and affordable towing and hauling performance wrapped up in a fittingly conservative design, it’s a wonder the Sierra doesn’t share a stage with the likes of the Chevy Silverado. In fact, this is because the GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado are mechanically identical. Both trucks are manufactured by General Motors, though the Sierra is obviously the lesser-known of the two.
Like the Chevy Silverado, the GMC Sierra is a light-duty pickup truck designed the American way for the American driver. Rugged hauling performance driven by a 4.8L to 5.3L V8 engine (depending on year and trim level) means there’s no load too heavy, no cargo too bulky, and no job too big. Generous cabin spaces with deceivingly comfortable interior finishes will make those tougher treks through upstate New York bearable, and its classic reliability means you can push harder with peace of mind.
Naturally, you might wonder what exactly separates the Sierra and the Silverado given that they’re nearly identical. Branding aside, GMC models tend to be slightly pricier than their Chevy counterparts in addition to being much less common, making them a more exclusive and prestigious option. GMC models, including the Sierra 1500, are also available in the “Denali” trim level, an ultra-premium option featuring luxury interiors, exteriors, technology and available engine upgrades, all unavailable on Chevy models.
