2018 Ram 1500 vs. 2018 GMC Sierra 1500

Are you in the market for a light-duty pickup truck, but you’re having trouble deciding between the 2018 Ram 1500 and the 2018 GMC Sierra 1500? In comparison, the Ram 1500:

  • Achieves 20 hp more with its introductory 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine
  • Offers a diesel engine option with a best-in-class highway driving range of up to 702 miles
  • Boasts many more features available from the start such as LED bed lighting and push-button start that aren’t available for the competition


When you go with the 2018 Ram 1500, you can expect better performance from the start. Its 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine churns out 305 hp with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2018 GMC Sierra’s base engine is a 4.3L EcoTech V6 that manages just 285 hp and starts off with a six-speed automatic transmission. Plus, the Ram 1500 boasts a diesel engine in its powertrain lineup – a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine that promises an EPA-estimated 27 mpg highway and 420 lb-ft of torque, as well as exceptional warranty coverage. The Sierra 1500 offers no such diesel engine, nor does the second engine in its lineup reach the same torque.


The 2018 Ram 1500 offers the following features as standard, which are either unavailable on introductory 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 trims or cost more to have:

  • Halogen quad headlamps
  • LED bed lighting
  • Optional Bluetooth connectivity
  • Vinyl upholstery
  • Available parking assistance
  • Several more exterior paint color options
