The 2018 GMC Sierra, together with its twin the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, make up GM’s full-size pickup dynasty. Positioned as a slightly more premium offering than the Chevy, the GMC Sierra has some unique styling flourishes. The GMC brand is viewed as more exclusive, especially with the popular high-end Denali trim line, so MSRP’s tend to be slightly higher than Chevrolet counterparts. The 2018 GMC Sierra is priced from a starting MSRP of $29,000, a few hundred dollars more than the Silverado.
Pros: Unique Styling From More Mainstream Chevy, Utilitarian, Multiple Engine & Cab Configurations
Cons: Ride Quality, Outdated Interior Design, Desirable Denali Trim
Looks Best In: Dark Slate exterior/Cocoa & Dune interior
Summary: With essentially the only major difference between the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra being styling, choosing between the two comes down to a matter of personal taste. Both a rugged, durable and nicely equipped. With new models due next year, now is a great time to find a deal on a 2018 model. The Achilles heal for both trucks is their ride quality. The 2018 Ram 1500 which leads the segment in that category.
