The New Ram 1500 vs. The GMC Sierra: Comparing the Two Trucks for Drivers Around Richfield Springs

The 2019 editions of two of the most popular light-duty trucks on the market, the Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra, are now available to car shoppers, and each truck comes with a fresh look for this model year. There are tons of new features and aspects with each of these vehicles, so, to help truck shoppers near Utica, we've highlighted a few areas where there are differences from past model years and then compared the two trucks.

Below, shoppers around mid-state New York will see that the 2019 Ram 1500 carries over many facets, like toughness, that made it so popular in the area while also adding technology for the modern day. If you're in the market for a new truck, be sure to check out our comparison before coming to a decision!



Whether you're taking your truck off-road into the woods or asking it to handle towing or hauling tasks at your Herkimer work site, the 2019 Ram 1500 remains the more capable of the two models. Its new eTorque mild-hybrid engine system gives drivers more torque to work with than the 2019 GMC Sierra, which is why the Ram 1500 can tow 12,750 pounds while the Sierra tops out at 12,100 pounds. Looking to explore? The Ram 1500 is available with off-road performance features, like an air suspension and electronic locking rear differential, that will keep drivers out of trouble when tackling the toughest terrain.


The cabin of the 2019 Ram 1500 is the most luxurious one yet as it has space, materials, and features that will have all passengers in a state of relaxation anytime they're in it. When looking at the largest cabins these two trucks offer, both called crew cabs, the Ram 1500 delivers more rear legroom and a wider back seat, so when you put three members of your crew or family back there, they don't feel smushed, and only the Ram 1500 offers comfort features like ventilated, reclining rear seats.

What's more, the Ram 1500 has smarter storage options than the 2019 GMC Sierra. So that it doesn't waste space, the Ram 1500 offers under-seat storage, in-floor storage, and even bins above the rear wheels with the innovative RamBox® Cargo Management System, which are not areas the GMC Sierra thinks to take advantage of.


Ilion drivers may not think that trucks will be where innovation in automotive safety is going to come from, but the 2019 Ram 1500 is ready to prove them wrong. It claims over 100 safety and security features, including ones like Blind Spot Monitoring with Trailer Detection that reduce the guesswork of towing jobs while other features, like Guided Parking, help with other driving aspects. The 2019 GMC Sierra does not offer either of the above two features.


In the other sections, we mentioned some of the tech that New Hartford, NY truck shoppers will find in the Ram 1500, but those are the only the beginning. Pushing it further ahead of the 2019 GMC Sierra are features like a 12-inch touchscreen in-dash display, Active Noise Cancellation, Type-C ultra-fast charging ports for mobile devices, and a panoramic sunroof. With these features, drivers and passengers can expect a ride that is comfortable, convenient, and entertaining.
