Comparing the Power and Style of the Chevrolet Silverado HD to the GMC Sierra HD

Here, at O'Connor Auto Park, we know how important trucks are to drivers from Bangor to Lewiston-Auburn and everywhere in between! That's why we only sell high-performance names, that will go up and above the call of duty - like the Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD. These heavy-duty trucks are built to handle any job you put before them. From impressive payload ratings to new tech, there is a long list of reasons to choose one of these models.

Engines, Payloads, and More

Now, whether you are going to work in Augusta or camping in Rockland, there is a range of ways these powerful trucks can help you out. So, what sets these apart, and which one would work better for your busy schedule? Our professionals are here to help you answer that question.

When comparing the Chevy Silverado HD and the GMC Sierra HD, you will come to find that there is a whole lot of similarities. Starting with power, these trucks both come standard with a 6.6-liter V8 gas engine. These are impressive machines, able to kick out 401 horsepower and 464 pounds-feet of torque. If you stay with this engine option, it will be coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission.

However, if you want more power in your heavy-duty truck, you can upgrade to a 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 in both models. This will bring you a whopping 445 horsepower and 910 pounds-feet of torque. Other comparisons you can find in the performance of these two trucks are:

  • A maximum available payload rating of 7,442 pounds.
  • A trailering capability of up to 36,000 pounds.
  • A total cargo volume of up to83.5 cubic-feet.

Exterior Differences

When looking for differences between the Silverado and Sierra, your main focus will fall on the exterior. The grilles on these models provide varying looks. The Silverado gives drivers a more sleek appearance, with the Chevrolet badge spanning the entire front of the car. Then, you have the more commanding presence of the Sierra. Here, the GMC badge is centered, and the headlights are more squared.

You will also find side steps on the standard model of the GMC Sierra and larger lights in the front bumper. Both differ from the standard model of the Chevy Silverado. This furthers the simple and sleek appearance of the Silverado, while the Sierra is larger and flashier.

Interior and Technology

The interior is seemingly the same as well. What you can come to expect is that the GMC Sierra will focus more on luxury when inside the truck. When in the Silverado, you can see a clear focus on functionality. With an available leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and ventilated leather seats, the Sierra continues to offer luxurious options. If you are looking for best-in-class passenger space, the Silverado with a crew cab can offer it to you with ease. Both options' interiors are the right mix of comfort, so your long road trips are a bit easier to handle.

When looking at everything else inside the cabin, from storage spaces to tech and safety, you are largely going to find the same qualities in both heavy-duty models. Impressive features, like a heads up display that projects your navigation onto the windshield, are available in every trim level!
