One for Work, One for Pleasure: Compare Ford F-150 to the New GMC Sierra 1500 in Los Angeles

The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling truck in America for the last 40 years--with the Ford F-150 in particular leading the pack in Los Angeles for the better of two decades. But, the new GMC Sierra 1500 is doing its best to stay competitive against such a market giant, and South Bay and Santa Monica drivers are taking an interest in it.

Read on below to compare the Ford F-150 vs GMC Sierra 1500, and see whether the lavishly-equipped, softer GMC is better for you that the class-leading and award-winning Ford.

  • The Ford F-150 has more torque than the Sierra 1500

  • Ford's SYNC 3 infotainment system is much smarter than the GMC's touchscreen system
  • New Pro Trailer Backup Assist in the Ford F-150 makes towing in this truck worlds easier to park and maneuver with a trailer in tow than any equipment in the GMC Sierra 1500

Trim Levels and Special Options
