Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500
Need a truck with plenty of power to tow your equipment? Also want your new truck to have plenty of space and features within the cabin for a comfortable and fun ride around Georgetown, Vernonburg, Montgomery, and Richmond Hill?
Below, our team here at Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram South Savannah compared the Ram 1500 vs. GMC Sierra 1500 to help you decide which full-size pickup truck is best for your needs.
Which Truck Can Tow More?
One of the big perks of having a truck is the ability to carry a range of cargo. With strong powertrains and spacious bed options, each of these pickups give you plenty of versatility when needed to bring along supplies and equipment.
You can pack up for vacation, bring your equipment to worksites, and carry supplies for your next home improvement project with either the Ram 1500 or GMC Sierra 1500. The main difference, though, is that the 2020 Ram 1500 will let you tow more or heavier gear.
The available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque gives the Ram 1500 a towing capacity that reaches 12,750 pounds. At its maximum, the GMC Sierra 1500 can tow 12,100 pounds when equipped with the available 6.2L V8 engine. Depending on the size of your trailer or equipment, you may need to get a Ram 1500 to be able to safely pull it along with you.
Comparing the Cabins of the 2020 Ram 1500 vs 2020 GMC Sierra 1500
Inside both cabins, you and your passengers will have a comfortable ride with the range of features and space they provide. Comparing the Crew Cab option that each truck offers, the Ram 1500 will be a little more comfortable for your friends or family in the back.
This is because it gives them 45.2 inches of legroom and has available features like the ability to ventilate to cool them off and recline for a more relaxed ride. The Sierra 1500 Crew Cab isn’t as spacious with only 43.4 inches of legroom in the second row. It also doesn’t have a ventilation or reclining option for the back seats.
Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500: Infotainment Systems
Also a part of those features we mentioned, that are found inside each truck, is an infotainment system. This give you a range of features to stay entertained and easy ways to control other settings within your truck.
You can stream audio straight from your phone and use the touchscreen to control various features to adjust your personal comfort. You can also make this screen larger in the 2020 Ram 1500 with an available 12-inch touchscreen.
This comes with a navigation system as well, which can show a full-screen view of your route. With this display, you can even choose to use its split-screen capability and show your smartphone apps on the top while your climate control system settings are displayed on the bottom.
The GMC Sierra 1500 only has up to an available 8-inch display and can’t be split to show you multiple settings of your infotainment.
Deciding Between the 2020 Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500
The Ram 1500 vs. GMC Sierra 1500 comparison shows why drivers enjoy both trucks. If you need to have the extra towing capacity, interior space, or would like to have the more advanced infotainment system, the 2020 Ram 1500 is the truck for you.
