Advantages of the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500
As you can tell by looking at the table above, the trucks are extremely similar. We won’t lie about the F150 being a great truck, it’s the most popular for a reason. However if you look closely at the specifications we’ve highlighted here, the Sierra 1500 definitely has an advantage over the Ford F150. Let’s start with power, a 2-horsepower advantage wouldn’t do much, but combining that with the extra 22 foot-pounds of torque gives the Sierra a pretty healthy boost in power.
As for efficiency, the trucks are nearly identical, with their combined fuel efficiency being roughly 11.2 l/100km a piece. The GMC Sierra 1500’s real advantage, however, comes in the way of payload and towing capacity. You can hold an extra 40 lbs. in the bed of the truck thanks to a high payload, and as for towing you can trailer an extra 500 lbs. behind the Sierra.
