How Does the Ram 1500 Compare to the GMC Sierra 1500 for Burlington VT Drivers?

If you're in need of a truck for sale near Burlington, you've likely come across so many different makes and models that you don't know which one would be best for you. This situation happens to many Vermont truck buyers, and it can be quite frustrating.

However, we here at Bokan Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram believe that there's one model that rises above the rest of the trucks in the crowd: the new Ram 1500. You may, however, still be deciding between the 2021 Ram 1500 and another popular pickup truck model: the GMC Sierra 1500. Let's take a look at these two trucks to see why the 2021 Ram 1500 is a better value than the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500.

When it comes to performance, the Ram 1500 rises above the GMC Sierra 1500.

None of the GMC Sierra 1500's five engine options quite reach the same level of greatness achieved by the available engines for the Ram 1500. The strongest GMC Sierra 1500 engine is the 6.2-liter V8 engine, and it falls short in terms of towing capacity. The GMC Sierra 1500's strongest engine can only tow up to 11,800 pounds, which is almost 1,000 pounds less than the strongest engine in the 2021 Ram 1500.

Features & Safety

No matter what kind of vehicle you drive, safety is important. We believe that the Ram 1500 edges out the GMC Sierra 1500 in this category, both in terms of the availability of safety features and that they are much more responsive and easy-to-use.

If you're using the Ram 1500 to tow things in and around Milton, you will love the innovative trailering features, such as Blind Spot Monitoring, Electronic Stability Control, and Electronic Roll Mitigation. In addition to that, the Ram 1500 has an available Parallel and Perpendicular Parking Assist, available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, and an available 360-Degree Surround View Camera.

The GMC Sierra has some of these features but lacks many others, such as Electronic Roll Mitigation and Electronic Stability Control. The features that are there are not quite as responsive as the ones found in the Ram 1500, making them somewhat hard to use for Fairfax drivers.
