2017 GMC Sierra 1500 vs. Its Competition

2017 GMC Sierra 1500
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

If it's beefy good looks you're after, the GMC Sierra squares off well agains the Ram 1500.

The Ram shows its age in a few ways, but it's still the best-riding full-size pickup and we love its (pricey) turbodiesel V-6.

The Ford F-150 is deservedly a best seller, offering many virtues and few negatives, although its ride quality trails the GMs and the Ram.

Nissan gets back into the half-ton game this year with its lanky Titan, but it still feels more like a sophomore effort than a true rival.

The polished Toyota Tundra is an old design with a thirsty V-8, but it boasts Toyota's reliability record.

And if you find yourself smitten with the GMC Sierra, consider looking to your nearest Chevrolet dealer for the essentially identical, and usually slightly cheaper, Chevrolet Silverado.

Quick Specs
Ruggedly handsome, the 2017 GMC Sierra gains some nice safety tech for 2017 and remains one of the most desirable big pickups.
The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado is a straightforward, good-looking pickup that'll work in nearly every circumstance, with any outfit. It's the buzz cut of full-size trucks.
The 2017 Ford F-150 is a solid nudge forward with a new transmission and top-trim engine this year, also nudging forward: its overall price.
With pleasant road manners and plenty of power, the light-duty 2017 Nissan Titan can compete head-to-head with the big guys now, while the Titan XD is for those who need to tow but don't want a full-on heavy duty truck.
The Toyota Tundra delivers authentic truck talent, but it feels like a weak effort against its rivals.
The 2017 Ram 1500 can hold its own among the Detroit Three thanks to a good powertrain lineup and smart lineup additions.
