When you're the only pickup truck on the market to offer an incredible level of luxury and a five-link spring coil suspension system, you don't worry much about the competition. The Ram 1500 pickup truck is the best tool for every job drivers in Greensboro and High Point need to do, and its American quality and durability are nearly impossible to beat.

Here at Kernersville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, where we carry a full line of topnotch 2017 Ram 1500 trucks, we've put together this research page, pitting the Ram 1500 against the GMC Sierra 1500, to illustrate for our customers how superior Ram trucks are to their competition.

  • Engine power. Both the 2017 Ram 1500 and the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 have a multiple engine options available to drivers, including a standard V6 engine and an optional V8. However, both engines offer more power in the Ram 1500 than the GMC Sierra 1500. The Ram standard 3.6-liter V6 is rated for 305 horsepower, while the optional V8 puts out 395 horsepower. The GMC Sierra 1500, meanwhile, has a standard V6 with only 285 horsepower, and an optional V8 with 355 horsepower. The GMC Sierra 1500 does have a more-powerful V8 eventually, with an output of 420 horsepower, but it's only available for upper trims.
  • Diesel option. While the 2017 Ram 1500 has a nice, turbocharged, 3.0-liter V6 diesel option, the GMC Sierra 1500 doesn't give drivers any diesel-powered engine choices in their lineup of available powertrains.
  • Ride quality and transmission. Regardless of which trim level or engine option you go for on the 2017 Ram 1500, you can expect your truck to give you a smooth ride, thanks in part to its spring coil rear suspension, and its standard eight-speed automatic transmission. The GMC Sierra 1500 doesn't come standard with either feature. In fact, most engines and trim levels for the Sierra only come with a six-speed automatic transmission, and drivers can't get the eight-speed until they spend a lot more money on the top-tier trim level and engine option.
