A comparison is always a handy way to make the correct decision on your next truck. Around the roads of West Point, King William, and Williamsburg, both the Ford F-150 and GMC Sierra are common sights. So how do they stack up against each other? While they have some overlapping qualities, the Ford F-150 quickly separates itself as being the more well-rounded choice. Our Ford F-150 vs. GMC Sierra comparison will highlight a few important differences that favor the Ford.

At West Point Ford, we can also get you behind the wheel of the celebrated F-150!



Towing and Payload Capabilities

As trucks become more advanced, their towing and payload capabilities continue to impress. For classic truck traits such as towing and payload, the Ford F-150 sees a noticeable edge over the GMC Sierra 1500.

The most towing you can get from the Sierra 1500 is just 12,100 pounds, well behind the maximum of 13,200 pounds in the F-150. Ford also sees an edge in payload, where you can store as much as 3,270 pounds of cargo in the bed compared to less than 3,000 pounds for the Sierra.


Engine Options and Fuel Economy

A hardworking truck doesn't have to quickly empty your fuel tank. As models become more advanced, options like the Ford F-150 and GMC Sierra have started doing a better job of upping the fuel economy. It depends on the engine you choose, but the Ford F-150 is going to be the more efficient choice.

In total, you can select from six motors for both the 2020 F-150 and the Sierra 1500. In terms of fuel economy, however, the Ford F-150 can achieve up to an EPA-estimated 21 city/29 highway MPG with its 3.0L V6 engine.

The Sierra is most efficient when using its 2.7L turbo engine; unfortunately, it still only returns just an EPA-estimated 22 city /26 highway MPG.


Thrive on Any Terrain

There's a special thrill that comes with taking your truck off-roading. The Ford F-150 and GMC Sierra each have trim levels that help increase your model's adventurousness. With the Sierra, it's the AT4 version featuring mud terrain-rated Goodyear® Wrangler tires, a 2-inch factory-installed suspension lift, and other goodies.

With Ford, the go-to off-roading choice is the iconic Raptor. A seemingly endless amount of technologies and add-ons gives the Raptor one of the fiercest reputations on the market. A few headlining inclusions are:

  • FOX live valve monotube shocks featuring internal bypass technology
  • Trail Control™
  • A 3.5L motor making 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque

Ford Wins the 2020 F-150 vs Sierra 1500 Comparison

In the end, the F-150 gets the nod thanks to impressive performance, efficiency, and off-roading savvy. All of these traits can be put on display when you come to West Point Ford and book a test run around King William, Williamsburg, and West Point.
