2021 RAM 1500


Are you trying to decide between the 2021 Ram 1500 and the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500? You’ve come to the right place! In this comparison, we at Dallas Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram pit these two popular light-duty models against each other in the ways you care about most.

Below, Dallas, Garland, and Arlington, TX, shoppers will see how these models stack up when it comes to performance, cabin space, and technology. Read ahead to see which one comes out on top!


When It Comes to Power, Go Ram 1500

2021 RAM 1500 TowingIn the arena of power and performance, the 2021 Ram 1500 takes the cake. This model offers five engine options, including a 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque. The power of this available engine gives the Ram 1500 the capability to tow up to a whopping 12,750 pounds when properly equipped.

Working together with this engine is a Class-Exclusive standard TorqueFlite® 8-speed automatic transmission. Not only will you be able to pump iron with this model, but you’ll also be able to do it efficiently.

Compare these performance points to the GMC Sierra, which can’t quite match the capabilities of the Ram. Even with its more powerful engine, this model maxes out at a maximum towing capacity of 11,800 pounds. Plus, you won’t have the TorqueFlite® technology working under the hood.

Which Model Offers a Class-Exclusive Cabin?

The Ram 1500 interior is a sight to behold. Not only is it furnished with available high-end materials, like Natura Plus Leather with available ventilation, but it’s also endowed with some of the market’s most premium comfort features. Opt for available Class-Exclusive features, including reclining rear seats.

The Ram 1500’s largest cab option offers 45.2 inches of Class-Exclusive rear legroom for all three rear passengers to top it all off. The Sierra can’t compete—this model doesn’t provide either of these features. You also won’t get more than 43.4 inches of legroom in the rear seats.

Ram 1500 vs GMC Sierra: Technology Features

2021 RAM 1500 InfotainmentIn terms of technology, the Ram 1500 is exceptionally savvy. At the helm of this model’s cabin is an available Uconnect® 12.0 infotainment system with a large 12-inch touchscreen display. On this screen, you’ll be able to access all kinds of handy features, like SiriusXM® 360L, navigation directions, smartphone integration, and much more.

The GMC Sierra also offers an intuitive infotainment system. When you opt for the highest trim, you’ll get all the bells and whistles offered by the Ram 1500—except for the 12-inch screen. Consequently, this also means you’ll miss out on split-screen capability, so you’ll only be able to access one feature at a time in the Sierra.


2021 Ram 1500: The Superior Pickup Truck

As you can see, the 2021 GMC Sierra offers a few impressive features but can’t compare to the full package offered by the Ram 1500. Come see for yourself what the Ram can do at Dallas CDJR.
