2016 Ram 1500 vs. 2016 GMC Sierra 1500

Looking for a truck that can handle work and play? Then you're probably trying to decide between the Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500. Both are great vehicles and have a lot to offer, but how do they match up head to head? And which one would be best to drive around Queens, the Bronx, and Manhattan? Let's take a look.

Trim Levels and Body Styles

�Both the�2016 Ram 1500�and the Sierra 1500 are full-size pickup trucks available in a wide variety of trims and body styles.

The Ram 1500 comes with three body styles: regular cab, extended cab, and crew cab. The regular cab can seat three and comes with choice of a 6-foot-4 or 8-foot cargo bed. The extended cab can seat six and comes only with the 6-foot-4 bed. The crew cab gives more rear seat leg room for six and comes with either a 5-foot-7 or 6-foot-4 bed.

You can match 11 trim levels with these body styles: Laramie Longhorn, Limited, Sport, Outdoorsman, Rebel, Big Horn/Lone Star, SLT, HFE, Tradesman, and Express.

The Sierra 1500 comes in three body styles as well: regular cab, crew cab, and double cab. The regular cab can seat three and comes with choice of a 6-foot-6 bed or an 8-foot bed. The crew cab seats up to six with bed options of 5-foot-8 or 6-foot-6 inches. The double cab offers more passenger and cab room but is only available with the 6-foot-6 bed.


The heart of a truck is its engine, and both the�2016 Ram 1500�and the GMC Sierra have plenty to offer under the hood.

The Ram's base engine is a 3.6-liter gasoline six-cylinder engine that can put out 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission controlled by a rotary knob on the console. It comes in either rear-wheel or two 4-wheel drive options.

If that isn't enough power for you, then why not upgrade to the 5.7-liter V8 that puts out 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque? It can be paired with either a six-speed auto or an eight-speed auto transmission as an option. The same two- and four-wheel drive options exist for this engine.

�However, if you're looking for a diesel engine, then check out the Ram's 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that puts out 240 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.

The Sierra comes standard with a 4.3-liter gasoline V6 that can put out 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission available in rear-wheel or four-wheel drive.

Upgrade options for the Sierra include a 5.3-liter V8 that puts out 355 horsepower or the 6.2-liter V8 that can put out 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
