Which is Better? GMC Sierra or Chevy Silverado


Which is Better? GMC Sierra or Chevy Silverado

GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado, sharing the same umbrella and platform has made them similar – like twins…but not identical. Both award-winning trucks are 2 of the most popular on the market. Side by side their exterior body styles and interior design are almost identical. Both have equal powertrain components, box-like wheel wells, equal performance and similar ride quality.

The differences between these two light-duty trucks, GMC Sierra & Chevy Silverado, is found all up front. Their unique components are displayed in their front-end design, comfort & quality, price, and branding.

Let’s take a closer look.

Front-End Design

GMC Sierra has more of a box-like front end featuring the GMC emblem, whereas the Chevy Silverado’s front-end design is more of a sleek appearance-displaying the classic bowtie emblem. Both trucks have their own style of display for their headlights, bumpers, and fog lights.

Sierra features C-shaped headlights which makes it easy to distinguish from the Chevy Silverado’s headlights. Sierra has a rugged grille design, with a cutout right above the grille in the center. Square wheel openings with accent moldings give the Sierra a brazen stance. While the difference is pronounced, the Silverado’s grille design is also heavily built and aggressive.

Comfort & Quality

The GMC Sierra is quite a bit more luxurious than the Chevy Silverado. Minus some of the premium materials featured in the Sierra – the Silverado is the more affordable truck – more of a working truck, while the GMC Sierra is marketed more as an upscale truck, so it will have a bit more comforts like leather seating and triple-sealed doors- and even more plush with the Denali trim. The Silverado features the high Country trim – which is luxury to Chevy – and even though well-equipped – including a heated steering wheel – it doesn’t have the luxury of the Sierra Denali.

GMC Sierra’s package contains more content and comfort and Chevy Silverado’s package contains a lower price tag.


The starting price for the GMC Sierra is $29,000. The Chevy Silverado is a bit lower – with a starting price of $28,285.


Yes, the most obvious difference – one is a GMC and one is a Chevy – and this is the dividing point for many truck enthusiasts.


The GMC Sierra and the Chevy Silverado are both manufactured by General Motors and have a lot of similarities but as each proud owner knows – the Sierra and Silverado have their own unique truck style – that makes all the difference.
