Under the hood of the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500, you'll find a 4.3-liter EcoTec3 V-6 engine rated at 285 horsepower. Properly equipped, this engine allows the Sierra 1500 to tow up to 8,900 pounds – an impressive number, but still not enough to take down the Ram 1500. Paired with this engine is a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. Additional standard features include: a locking tailgate, tinted glass, folding exterior mirrors, 17-inch wheels, A/C, cruise control, a driver information center, a USB port, an auxiliary audio jack, a tire pressure monitoring system, a split front bench seat and power door locks.
Ram perfected the 1500 way back in 2009, when the truck saw its last redesign. One of the distinguishing features of this truck is its supple, responsive ride, thanks to its class-exclusive coil-spring rear suspension. Not only is the Ram 1500 extremely well-mannered, it has a higher towing capacity than the Sierra and a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic for enhanced performance and efficiency. Standard on the 1500 pickup are: 17-inch wheels, a seven-pin wiring harness, a Class IV receiver hitch, active grille shutters, automatic headlamps, a locking tailgate, a spray-in bedliner, vinyl floors, A/C, a split front bench seat, vinyl seats, cruise control, a driver information screen, privacy glass, six speakers, a USB port and an auxiliary audio input jack. Advanced features like a remote ignition, heavy-duty rear shock absorbers and an 8.4-inch touchscreen are available on the affordable Ram 1500's upper trims.
