2019 Ram 1500 vs. 2018 GMC Sierra 1500
While the 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 might be a pretty choice for a night out in Cedar Park, the 2019 Ram 1500 delivers good looks, powerful engines, and features that the GMC truck just can’t match. To demonstrate the superiority of this newly redesigned powerhouse, we’ve prepared a comparison of the two trucks.
How Does the Ram Beat the GMC?
Not only does the Ram 1500 offer greater standard towing capacity
than the GMC Sierra, it delivers power, safety, and convenience features that you won’t find on the GMC truck:
- Advanced Safety: To prevent backing accidents the 2019 Ram 1500 offers an available reverse stop which can automatically apply the brakes if it detects obstacles. GMC doesn’t have such a feature.

- Convenient Storage: Only Ram trucks offer access to the RamBox cargo system, which incorporates locking watertight tool storage into the truck’s side rails. GMC doesn’t offer anything similar.
- Parking Assist: The Ram truck can be equipped with adaptive cruise control and parking assist system to help drivers better control the vehicle automatically. GMC doesn’t offer autonomous parking or adaptive cruise control.
