2018 GMC Sierra 2500HD vs. Its Competition

2018 GMC Sierra 2500 HD
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The GMC Sierra HD is mechanically related to the Chevrolet Silverado HD, although the GMC version gets more goodies at the top end.

The Ford Super Duty is our current pick in the class, but not for how it looks.

Ford’s added tech makes a big difference, especially when towing.

Ram’s heavy duty range is the oldest, relatively speaking, but it still has its charms.

If you’re looking for a truck to match your belt buckle, the Ram may be the ticket.

Nissan’s Titan doesn’t have the same capabilities as the other, but it has the heavy-duty looks.

Its interior isn’t anywhere near as refined, but for the money, it could be a compelling bet.

Quick Specs
7.5
The 2018 GMC Sierra HD would be at home at any jobsite. Likely found in the foreman’s lot, we suspect.
6.8
The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD stakes its claim on a workaday pickup that won’t look dated in 10 years.
7.3
The 2018 Ford Super Duty range combines maximum capability with the latest tech and conveniences—it’s no wonder they’re called “Cowboy Cadillacs” now.
5.5
The 2018 Nissan Titan and Titan XD fill in the gaps left by others with a reasonable price, reasonable performance, and better warranty.
6.3
The 2018 Ram 2500 balances style, comfort, and capability very well.
