Ford F-150 vs GMC Sierra

Living in the Stroudsburg, Lehigh Valley, and Nazareth area, you experience the best and the worst of Pennsylvania weather. There's heavy snow in the winter and major downpours in the summer. Needless to say, the roads can get rough.

To navigate the elements, you're going to need one tough truck. The 2017 GMC Sierra is a formidable machine. At Ray Price Stroud Ford, we're pretty confident it can't hold a candle to the 2017 Ford F-150. To be sure, we'll have to examine both… ford f-150 vs gmc sierra 

Safety First

One of the major reasons you're choosing a truck is for the safety. Presumably, the better it handles, the more protected you'll be. In this respect, some trucks just tend to go the extra mile.

The 2017 Ford F-150 comes equipped with a wide variety of safety features. From its highly-advanced Safety Canopy® airbag system to AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control, you'll have protection across the board.

It's due in large part to features like these that the 2017 Ford F-150 has been granted a 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The 2017 GMC Sierra, unfortunately, does not earn this coveted award. This can perhaps be attributed to its lesser airbag system. Nevertheless, it may leave passengers more vulnerable.

Ford F-150 vs. GMC Sierra: Performance

In terms of performance, the Sierra and the F-150 do have a few things in common. Both come equipped with six-cylinder engines, six-speed automatic transmissions, and available all-wheel drive systems. In fact, their gas mileage is almost the same, too, with the F-150 winning out with 23 MPG highway1 to 22 MPG highway in the Sierra.

Nevertheless, the F-150 does include one very useful feature that won't be found in the Sierra. In addition to trailer sway control, the truck's transmission also comes with a towing and hauling mode.

With this added feature, the F-150 is able to tow on those rougher roads with far more ease. During these hauls, the GMC Sierra, on the other hand, may end up struggling.

It's All in the Bed

The bed is the single most distinctive feature of any truck. So naturally, it's going to define your vehicle. And the bigger it is, the better.

The bed of the Ford F-150 includes a total of 62.3 cubic feet of cargo space. Feel free to store anything that won't fit in your trailer or in the cab. You'll have more than enough space to do so!ford f-150 vs gmc sierra

The bed of the GMC Sierra ends up receiving a bit of a downgrade, however. With only 61 cubic feet of volume, the difference is noticeable.
