GMC and Toyota both have long and storied traditions of success and excellence. Both manufacturers dabble in many different kinds of vehicles but in America, their truck offerings take center stage. In particular, the Sierra 1500 and the Tundra become the focus of discussions revolving around their respective offerings. A common question we are asked is which one do we recommend or prefer. 50 years of experience have given us a perspective on the debate that others might not have. Both have their merits, but we’ve come to believe that the Sierra is a superior vehicle. To learn more, read below but you can always ask a member of our team for more info. You can browse our online inventory to get the GMC Sierra 1500 for yourself!

Why We Recommend The GMC Sierra 1500 at Dave Smith Motors

For being such a massive vehicle, it’s impressive how efficient the GMC Sierra 1500 is. While it easily beats out the Toyota Tundra, 27 mpg over 24 mpg on the highway, it can even compete with certain midsize SUVs and sedans. And that’s while carrying the capacity to push out up to 420 hp versus 390 for the Toyota Tundra. So the Sierra is not only more efficient but also more powerful than the Tundra. That power comes into play when looking at maximum towing capacity, as the Sierra can tow up to an additional 1,000 lbs of weight. A GMC Sierra 1500 can easily pull over 13,000 lbs versus 12,000 for the Tundra. There’s also more room and space in the Sierra for your head and feet to stretch out. Even while driving, the Sierra just offers a more refined and cohesive experience despite its power. The Tundra is a powerful vehicle but that power often leads to a stiff and unresponsive experience foreign to the GMC Sierra 1500.
