Compare The Sierra 1500 Pickup Truck Against The Silverado 1500

If you're looking to upgrade your pickup truck to a newer, more powerful model, there are many factors you need to take into account. The market is full of pickup trucks that offer technological advancements and attractive designs, but which model is the right fit for you? Luckily, our team at Weston Buick GMC is here to help. Our expert team has analyzed the specs, safety features and performance capability of our popular GMC Silverado 1500 and compares it against the rival Chevrolet Silverado 1500. To help with your decision, let’s see how the new Sierra stacks up against the Silverado.

The Advantages Of The Sierra 1500 Over The Silverado

The new GMC Sierra 1500 is powered by a V8 engine that is producing up to 420 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. That’s over 100 more horsepower than the standard turbocharged I-4 cylinder engine of the Chevrolet Silverado’s model. And now you can optimize your trailering experience of the Sierra 1500, thanks to the ProGrade™ Trailering System and features like the in-vehicle trailering app, integrated high-resolution cameras, and an available Integrated Trailer Brake Controller that will provide you with fingertip control over your trailer brakes. 

Drive the streets of Portland, OR, in confidence thanks to the available safety features found on the new Sierra 1500. This new pickup truck comes with a wide array of convenient amenities that you won’t find on the new Silverado 1500. The industry-first Auto Electric Parking Brake Assist on the Sierra will help you avoid trailer roll and maintain your hitch ball alignment whenever you put your truck into park, and the available Lane Departure Warning system will alert you if your vehicle or trailer begins drifting into another lane.
