It’s well known that the GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado are essentially the same truck under two different brands and nameplates, but recent generations have been differentiated in several ways that set them apart, with the GMC Sierra taking the lead. Let’s explore a comparison of these two workhorses to see how they’re alike and different.
Historically, the Sierra and Silverado have had nearly identical exteriors, though that began to change in the 2019 model year. Now, though both are boxy and similarly shaped up front, they have different headlights and grilles that help set them apart. The GMC Sierra has a chrome grilled frame that borders a chrome mesh grilled with the GMC nameplate front and center. The Sierra’s headlights are modern and C-shaped, which complements the chrome for a modern, athletic style. The Silverado, on the other hand, has a different grille depending on the trim level, though they’re frameless. The Silverado’s headlights also depending on the trim, but they all share a notched design rather than a smooth C-shaped design.
Interior And Technology
Inside, the two trucks remain very similar, with a center-stack style infotainment console and an 8-inch touchscreen. Both trucks also have a driver information display screen flanked by two circular gauges in the instrument cluster, allowing the driver to see vital information like fuel levels, fuel consumption, driving modes, and more.
Power And Performance
Under the hood, you’ll see more differences in the 2019 Sierra and the 2019 Silverado. The Sierra is powered by either a 5.3-liter V8 or a 6.2-liter V8 depending on the trim level. In comparison, the base Silverado gets a 4.3-liter V6, with options ranging up to a 6.2-liter V8.
