2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD vs. Its Competition

2017 GMC Sierra 2500HD, Sierra 1500 and Canyon All Terrain X
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

If you're looking at a GMC Sierra 2500HD, it's certainly worth test-driving the Chevrolet Silverado.

They're the same vehicle beneath the skin and the Chevy usually lists for a little less than its tonier cousin, although GMC offers a few more features in the range-topping Denali.

The Ford Super Duty is these trucks' most important rival and its 925 pound-foot of torque turbodiesel bests GM's—at least on paper.

We think the GM trucks are a little more comfortable and refined inside, but it's a very close battle and you can't go wrong with either.

Ram doesn't sell quite as many heavy-duty trucks, but its 2500-series pickups remain terrific choices as well thanks to their robust Cummins turbodiesel and their comfortable interior.
