It's time for a new light-duty pickup truck, but will the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 or the 2021 Ford F-150 serve you better? Before you hit the streets of Liverpool, Oneida, or Syracuse, NY, see how these vehicles fare in a head-to-head comparison.

Find out which truck seems better suited for your needs on the New York roads. If you have questions, reach out to us at Bill Rapp Buick GMC for answers!

Sierra 1500 Turbo-Diesel performance…

…with more standard horsepower than the F-150!

The Sierra 1500 and the F-150 are potent performers with plenty of muscle. Whether you need to tow, haul, or simply drive, you'll have endless options as you configure your new pickup truck.

Both models come standard with a vigorous V6 engine, with V8 and turbo-diesel engines available. However, if you want a sprightly turbo 4-cylinder, only the Sierra 1500 offers such a powertrain.  

The Sierra 1500 has another ace up its sleeve: a Duramax® 3.0L Turbo-Diesel with 460 lb-ft of torque and a best-in-class 277 horsepower on tap. The F-150's 3.0L Power Stroke® Turbo-Diesel cranks out 440 lb-ft of torque and 250 horsepower.

Cargo: The Sierra 1500 Has the Volume. . .

More than the Ford F-150 or any other competitor!

For many drivers, a truck is only as capable as the bed in the back. The GMC Sierra 1500 and the Ford F-150 each offer three different bed lengths so you can customize your vehicle to transport any gear or materials you need.

Still, the Sierra 1500 comes out on top in cargo bed volume. While the Ford F-150 offers a generous 77.4 cubic feet of cargo volume when equipped with its 8-foot bed, the Sierra 1500 manages even more: 89.1 cubic feet. 

Another point in the Sierra 1500's favor? An industry-first carbon-fiber composite bed, available as an option for the GMC pickup truck.

Sierra 1500 vs F-150: Strong on Infotainment

The Sierra 1500 has a class-leading 15 camera views!

To keep you connected wherever you drive, the GMC Sierra 1500 and the Ford F-150 feature state-of-the-art multimedia. With either the GMC Infotainment System or its Ford counterpart, you'll have standard or available:

  • Android Auto™ / Apple CarPlay®
  • Bluetooth® wireless technology
  • Wireless device charging

The Sierra 1500's camera is truly next level with up to 15 available camera views! You can equip it with:

  • HD Surround Vision
  • Rear Camera Mirror
  • Bed View Camera

All in all, you can have more views than you would with the camera of any light-duty pickup truck competitor-and that includes the Ford F-150.
