Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra: What’s the Difference?

The GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado are similar trucks — both are from General Motors and both built on the same platform. Additionally, both offer the same powertrain options. But the Sierra and the Silverado have always appealed to different demographics.

One difference between the 2019 Silverado and Sierra is their styling. The new generations of both trucks begin with the 2019 model year, and the Silverado’s design has branched out into a sleeker, more modern look while the Sierra maintains a more traditional boxy shape.

The Chevy Silverado is an all-purpose truck: it functions as a work pickup, a daily driver for families, and a capable off-roader, all in one vehicle. The outdoorsy Silverado is packed with features that add to its versatility at every trim level, making it appeal to a broader customer base than the GMC Sierra.

On the other hand, the Sierra is known for high-end luxury and its focus on creature comforts, with an array of advanced technologies and features you won’t find on another truck, not even the Silverado — like the Multi-Pro tailgate with six different configurations including a work surface. The Sierra is ideal for customers who want pickup capabilities with the comfort and state-of-the-art tech of a luxury car.

All that being said, the best way to discover the difference between the Sierra and Silverado — and to choose between one and the other — is to take a good look at both in person. And you can do just that at Bill Cram Chevrolet!
