2016 GMC SIERRA VS 2016 FORD F-150

When it comes to finding an ideal work and travel vehicle, options can range anywhere from the no-frills practical to the elegant. The 2 trucks in our 2016 GMC Sierra vs 2016 Ford F-150 comparison can both deliver top quality on either of these fronts.  For our money the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500, especially in the top trims, delivers the kind of power, cabin comfort and elegance that the Ford option can't quite match. These trucks have manufacturer suggested retail prices in roughly equivalent ranges, & come with unique comfort and convenience features. But time and again the Sierra goes the extra mile to deliver a premium pickup experience.

Both of these trucks are available with multiple engine options, but for top horsepower and torque, the GMC Sierra wins out by a significant margin. Its available 6.2-litre V8 is rated for a breathless 420 horsepower & 460 pound-feet of torque, while the Ford 5.0-liter offers a top horsepower of only 385. Top torque on the F-150 is only 420 pound-feet & is only available on the optional 3.5-liter turbo V6. This means that choosing one elite engine on the 2016 GMC Sierra offers more power, acceleration & towing opportunity than the F-150.

With the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 checking all the boxes when it comes to engine power and capability, you might think that the F-150 would take the lead in features or ride comfort, but there too the Sierra comes outfitted with features & elegance that the Ford truck struggles to match. When comparing the elite Sierra Denali and Ford Platinum trims of these two vehicles, the Sierra excels in practical interior features that add quality to the daily commute or the work-site. Both elite models feature leather upholstery & power accessories, but the Sierra includes power rear windows for easy cabin ventilation, & the built-in ability to become a Wi-Fi hotpots for up to 7 devices.

When it comes to a comfortable ride (whether loaded or unloaded) and a premium cabin experience, the Sierra also pulls ahead in this 2016 GMC Sierra vs 2016 Ford F-150 comparison. Active noise cancellation in the Sierra, as well as standard elite touring suspension and advanced Magnetic Ride Control mean that the 2016 GMC Sierra offers the smoothest ride and the quietest cabin, no matter the road conditions.
