In the field of full-size trucks, brand loyalty is an especially strong factor, with die-hards for the bow tie or the blue oval.
Styling is a big differentiator; the Sierra has a softer design, while the other competitors have the more aggressive, faux-semi look in front.
Fuel economy is a strong point for the Sierra; with the 4.8- or 5.3-liter engines, it gets better ratings in city and highway driving than all of its rivals with similar-sized engines--at a time when every mile per gallon really counts.
The 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 has one or two fewer gears than the Tundra.
The Tundra--especially in top-trim versions--is especially competitive with the Silverado, as it offers a comfortable, classy interior and 5.7-liter V-8 that's more powerful than GM's 6.0-liter.
