2017 RAM 1500 Versus 2017 GMC Sierra

Trucks are a necessity for many aspects of life. Whether you need a strong truck to get you through your day-to-day work, you need one to haul items for your long list of big projects at home, or you have always just wanted a tough-looking truck parked in your drive-way, you know that there is a wide variety of different brands of trucks out there. The RAM 1500, with its bold exterior, sturdy work-ethic, and all-around high-quality features, may be perfect for you, but what about the competition? We have compared the RAM 1500 with the GMC Sierra to help you make your decision.

Difference in power

Although the GMC Sierra has a more powerful engine, the RAM 1500 can come in either a diesel or a regular gas engine. This choice can make a big impact in your gas mileage as well as in over-all performance. The RAM 1500 does contain an eight-speed automatic transmission with over-drive while the GMC Sierra only has a six-speed automatic transmission with over-drive, but both models boast a four-wheel-drive system as well as enough seats for three passengers.

Difference in space

The RAM 1500 has a length of 231.0 inches, width of 79.4 inches, and a height of 75.0 inches while the GMC Sierra is only 205.6 inches long, slightly wider, and just a little bit shorter. Even though it may not seem like much, every inch matters when it comes to carrying more passengers or cargo.

Difference in price

When you decide that it is time to spend your hard earned money on a new truck, you will be happy to know that the MSRP of the base 4X4 Regular Cab RAM 1500 is $31,095. In comparison, the MSRP of the GMC Sierra base 4X4 Regular Cab is $32,345. Of course, prices vary depending on the selected trim and size, but for the most part the RAM 1500 models are less expensive than the GMC Sierra models.
