The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Among increasingly bold full-size trucks, the 2013 GMC Sierra is simple in looks and strong in performance—with the Sierra Hybrid remaining a fuel-efficient standout. The 2013 Toyota Tundra is tough and able, but its overwrought styling, subpar interior appointments, and unimpressive fuel economy could be cause for hesitation.
