Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra 1500

How the Ram 1500 Workhorse Earns Best-in-Show among Less Capable, Comfortable Competitors

Comfort meets capability in the ruggedly refined Ram 1500. This full-size, half-ton pickup boasts a quiet, sophisticated cabin with plenty of creature comforts. A smooth-shifting transmission and a truly excellent trio of engine choices make the Ram 1500 a standout workhorse in a herd of barebones brutes.

Jackson, Griffin, McDonough, Covington, Monticello, Macon and Atlanta area truck drivers -- you can have your mud pie and eat it, too, with the classiness and all-terrain capability of the Ram 1500. You can find out more about how the Ram 1500 edges out its less comfortable competitors via the quick comparison below:

The Ram 1500 versus the GMC Sierra 1500


  • The Ram 1500 offers the ideal engine upgrade to a 5.7-liter V8, rated at 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The Sierra's V8 option falls short at 5.3 liters, 355 horsepower, and 383 pound-feet of torque.
  • The Ram 1500 is the only half-ton pickup to offer a diesel engine -- and an EcoDiesel at that. It's a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6, which earns an impressive 420 pound-feet of torque for ideal capability. Needless to say, the Sierra 1500 doesn't offer a diesel.
  • When paired with the Ram 1500 HFE trim, the EcoDiesel engine earns a best-in-class 29 mpg highway for the 2017 model year, beating out any the Sierra 1500 lineup offers.
  • A class-exclusive standard TorqueFlite® 8 eight-speed automatic transmission gives the Ram 1500 something to brag about, versus the Sierra 1500's unimpressive six-speed.

Technology and Safety

  • The Ram 1500 offers the additional peace of mind of a class-exclusive AllSecure® central locking system -- which, needless to say, the Sierra doesn't offer.
  • The Ram 1500 delivers the smoothest ride on the market thanks to a class-exclusive Active-Level™ four-corner air suspension. Again, the Sierra can't match this equipment.

Available Special Options and Trim Levels

  • The Ram 1500 can come equipped to your precise specifications thanks to a whopping 10 trim levels to choose from. You may end up paying more for features you don't need with GMC, as the Sierra 1500 lineup is condensed into four trims.
  • Buying a truck is more like designing a truck, as each trim is more like a foundation on which to add your ideal equipment. As such, it makes a big difference that the Ram 1500 is available at a lower starting price than the Sierra 1500.
  • A class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System keeps tools out from under our feet. The Sierra doesn't offer this Ram-only feature.
  • The Ram 1500's exclusive diesel engine comes paired with an unsurpassed five-year/100K-mile diesel powertrain limited warranty. The Sierra can't compete.

Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150

How the Ram 1500 Powers to the Head of the Workhorse Herd in the Greater Atlanta Area

Looking for a light-duty pickup truck that isn't a lightweight? The Ram 1500 maintains a fuel-efficient and easily maneuverable design while offering substantial towing and hauling capacities. The Ram 1500 stands tall among a herd of workhorses, offering superior comfort, capability, and customizability for the price.

It's easy to see why so many Jackson, Griffin, McDonough, Covington, Monticello, Macon and Atlanta area drivers choose Ram over something from a weaker breed. Check out the Ford F-150 comparison below for details on the Ram 1500's superior construction.

The Ram 1500 vs the Ford F-150

  • Since trucks are designed to be highly customizable, it's important for it to start out at an affordable price. Lucky for Ram buyers, the Ram 1500 is available a lower starting price than the Ford F-150.
  • The Ram 1500 lineup is diverse and comprehensive, featuring 11 unique trims to choose from. This includes a no-frills Tradesman model through a lavish Limited lux truck. The Ford F-150 has a more limited roster of players.
  • Opt for the Ram 1500 with Uconnect® Access smartphone integration, and you'll enjoy the limitless possibility of in-cabin Wi-Fi. The Ford F-150 is not a Wi-Fi hotspot.
  • A self-leveling air suspension contributes to the Ram 1500's exceptionally smooth ride -- a feature the Ford F-150 doesn't offer.
  • The Ram 1500 offers both a base V6 engine and V8 upgrade that are more powerful than what you get with the Ford F-150.
  • The Ram offers the choice of a traditional part-time four-wheel-drive (4WD) system or an Auto 4WD that does the work for you. Ford only equips the F-150 with one type of 4WD system.
  • Efficiency, power, and refinement are expertly balanced by the Ram 1500's eight-speed automatic transmission -- as opposed to the Ford's six-speed.
  • An available turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 earns the Ram 1500 class-leading fuel economy. Not only does the Ford F-150 not offer a diesel option, but it also trails behind the Ram 1500 when it comes to efficiency

Ram 1500 vs Chevy Silverado 1500

Rivalling Rides -- How the 2017 Ram 1500 Competes with Light-Duty Pickups

If you prefer a bit of refinement to go with the ruggedness of your work truck, we suggest giving the Ram 1500 some serious consideration. The Ram 1500 complements its substantial hauling and towing capabilities with clever storage solutions, a premium interior, and a value-packed design. A well-rounded design makes the Ram 1500 an ideal daily driver and allows it to stand out from the less comprehensive designs of its competitors, like the Chevy Silverado 1500.

Curious as to why the Ram 1500 is so popular among Jackson, Griffin, McDonough, Covington, Monticello, Macon and Atlanta area drivers? You can explore the details of its superior design via the comparison below:

The 2017 Ram 1500 vs the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • Pickup trucks are all about customization, so it makes sense to invest in the Ram 1500 that offers a more affordable starting price than the Chevy Silverado.
  • And speaking of customization, the Ram 1500 is easy to personalize with a generous 11 trims. These are distinct variants that appeal to a wide range of drivers, including a no-nonsense Tradesman work truck and a posh Limited lux truck. The Silverado's narrower lineup just can't compete.
  • The Ram 1500 benefits from an optional self-leveling air suspension, which refines performance to make for a smoother, more comfortable ride -- something the Silverado doesn't offer.
  • Invest in the standard Ram 1500 powertrain, and its base V6 engine will still generate more power than the standard Silverado setup.
  • The power and precision of the Ram 1500's performance is balanced by a smart, smooth-shifting, eight-speed automatic transmission, which the Silverado doesn't offer.
  • You get a choice of four-wheel-drive (4WD) systems with the Ram, including a traditional manual part-time system and one that switches automatically. There is only one 4WD system available with the Silverado.
  • The Ram 1500's available EcoDiesel engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6, which earns class-leading fuel economy. Overall, the Silverado is less efficient than the Ram 1500, and it doesn't offer a diesel engine option.
