2019 GMC Sierra 2500HD vs. Its Competition

2019 GMC Sierra HD

The heavy-duty pickup truck market is small but hotly-contested, with each entrant fighting for the best towing, payload, and power figures.

The Sierra HD shares a frame, engines, and many components with the Chevrolet Silverado HD but costs slightly more, so the differences between the two are mostly down to preference.

Ford’s Super Duty is the sales king of the hill after decades on the market and has a tech advantage on its competitors.

Ram’s heavy duty 2500 competes with the Sierra on style, and while Nissan’s Titan XD isn’t quite a heavy-duty truck, it does offer most of the capability for a significant discount.
