When shopping for a new full sized pickup truck, prospective buyers are invariably drawn to both the GMC Sierra 1500 and the Chevy Silverado. They are both leaders in the class, and with very good reason. Both have long traditions of setting high standards for pickup truck users. Both have loyal fan bases who have committed to the brands for years. Most importantly, though, both trucks are nearly identical. With both of these trucks coming from the General Motors family, you have to ask yourself “who will win in a 2019 GMC Sierra vs 2019 Chevy Silverado battle?” Well, let’s find out.
Mechanically, these trucks both come from the minds of General Motors engineers and share the same engine DNA. You could call them cousins. As for the 2019 model year, both offer the same line of engines under the hood, all built for performance at varying levels of need and required power. So, the difference is going to come in other places, such as trim levels, price, standard and optional features, and other such things truck buyers look for when shopping for a new vehicle.
We will go over these engines, including the new inline four cylinder turbo, and see what makes them so appealing. We will also take a look at General Motors’ new Dynamic Fuel Management system and how it affects said engines. We will take a brief look at trim levels and how they line up across from each other. Finally, we will take a look at the newly redesigned truck bed, how these two full sized trucks have set themselves ahead of the competition there, and one major design difference that may cast the deciding vote between the two. After you’ve read through and are ready to see these beauties in person, we invite you to come on over to Carl Black GMC Chevrolet in Roswell and take a look for yourself.
