2019 GMC Sierra 1500 vs. Its Competition

2019 GMC Sierra 1500
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Full-size pickups drive huge profits and intense competition.

Nissan and Toyota come up a little short in this segment, but the Titan’s optional turbodiesel and the Tundra’s all-around buttery smooth feel mean they shouldn’t be ignored.

The new Ram 1500 moves more into the styling mainstream, but its plush cabin has big touchscreens and big connectivity, and it sports a mild-hybrid powertrain to save fuel.

Ford’s F-150 is the segment’s sales leader and it belongs on any shopping list: it has the widest variety of model lines and powertrains, including the fearsome Raptor off-road specialist.

The Chevy Silverado mirrors the Sierra’s body style; while GMC gets some of the latest technology, the new 2019 Silverado comes with more powertrain choice out of the gate.

Quick Specs
5.6
The 2019 GMC Sierra steers out of the max-tow race; instead, it puts its marker down on smart and easy-to-use technology.
5.6
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is more refined and useful for cargo, though it isn’t as polished inside as the new Ram 1500.
6.5
The 2019 Ford F-150 hangs on to its best-selling truck title with a bevy of powertrains, thousands of build possibilities, and a seemingly endless reserve of truck bona fides.
4.5
The 2019 Nissan Titan is out of step with far more advanced rivals that don’t cost much more.
5.0
The 2019 Toyota Tundra has its virtues, but it’s a dated pickup truck ripe for redesign.
