Not many Regina and Moose Jaw drivers take the time to compare the 2016 Ram 1500 against the 2016 GMC Sierra – the reputation of the 1500 is simply too robust to make such a comparison necessary. Those who do choose to match the two against each other will invariably find that the legendary 1500 is just as capable as its reputation suggests, and that it outperforms the 2016 Sierra across the board. Keep reading to see how the two trucks compare.

EcoDiesel Power

Unlike the 2016 Ram 1500, the 2016 GMC Sierra doesn’t offer a diesel engine option; in fact, the 1500 is the only light-truck in the entire country to let you opt for one. Named to Ward’s annual ’10 Best Engines’ list two years in a row, the 240 horsepower 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 is unrivalled, offering drivers:

  • Class-Leading 420 lb-ft of Low-End Torque
  • Best-in-Class Fuel Economy of up to 11.3 L/100 km in the city and 8.0 on the highway.
  • Recommend Oil Change Intervals of up to 16,000 KM.

Faultless Capability

The 2016 Ram 1500 isn’t just an unequalled truck in the minds of Regina and Moose Jaw drivers – this is a vehicle that has enjoyed a considerable level of critical claim. It has been named:

  • Popular Mechanic’s ‘Truck of the Year’.
  • Four Wheeler Magazine’s ‘2016 Pickup Truck of the Year’
  • ‘2016 Canadian Truck King Challenge’ winner.

The 1500 was most notably put through its paces by the team over at Motor Trend. They took the 2016 Ram 1500, the 2016 Chevrolet Silverado, and the 2016 Ford F-150 through a challenging drive across California and Arizona, ultimately naming the 1500 as their ‘Half-Ton Shootout Winner’. The 2016 GMC Sierra wasn’t even among their top contenders, and it hasn’t enjoyed one ounce of the success and acclaim that the 1500 has.

Complete Versatility

The 2016 Ram 1500 clearly holds a stronger hand than the 2016 GMC Sierra when it comes to engine options and capability, and it doesn’t waver an inch when Regina and Moose Jaw drivers care to look inside.
