Pickup owners tend to have more loyalty than those of other vehicle types, and GMC owners are by far among the most traditional and dedicated.
The Chevrolet Silverado, which also comes from GM and is nearly identical to the Sierra, offers most of the same features, sometimes at a slightly lower price.
The Ford F-150 has more infotainment and luxury features than the Denali Sierras, but not by much; and with new powertrains last year it now beats many of the non-Hybrid versions of the Silverado and Sierra in power and fuel economy.
The Ram has received an extensive refresh for 2013, keeping its brash exterior but softening the cabin appointments to luxury-car standard (in some trims).
The Ram also has a superior ride and HEMI power on tap—plus its fuel economy is much-improved this year with the introduction of a new eight-speed automatic transmission and stop-start.
The Toyota Tundra tends to be the standout from a styling standpoint from many paces back, but it's awkward and gargantuan up close—even next to the Nissan Titan.
Meanwhile the Nissan Titan is aimed at personal truck shoppers—and it makes a whole lot of sense, with things like its sprayed-in bedliner and storage solutions—but its raucous V-8 is about as thirsty as they get today.
