The Car Connection's Take

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 GMC Sierra is a great pickup that offers simple and powerful engines, easy-to-use infotainment, and inoffensive styling inside and out. The 2015 Ram 1500 is a half-ton favorite, with fuel economy and ride comfort being its main strengths once again.
