When it comes to picking out your future pickup, not all trucks are created equal. It takes a truly remarkable vehicle that is fit for the privilege of towing and hauling the cargo of AB drivers. The Ram 1500 presents Brooks drivers with the superior powertrain configurations and luxury features that many competitors lack. Need more evidence? See what we mean with this quick comparison of the 2016 Ram 1500 against the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500.

Performance is Key

The 2016 Ram 1500 holds nothing back when it comes to providing Medicine Hat drivers with the power and performance that they need to get tough jobs done. The vehicle comes fully equipped with an eight-speed 3.6L Flex Fuel V6 that has the capacity to deliver 305 hp at any given moment. On the other hand, a common competitor like the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 is only able to provide a subpar amount of power with its six-speed automatic 4.3L EcoTec3 Flex Fuel V6. It’s only capable of providing up to 285 hp, which may not be enough for your day-to-day needs.

The 2016 Ram 1500 also outdoes the competition in some other very important performance aspects. For example, the chassis of the Ram 1500 measures a healthy 5,309-mm overall length with a steady wheelbase length of 3,061 mm in a regular cab configuration. The equivalent 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 is not able to provide as much stability, as it comes in with a much smaller 5,221.48-mm overall length and a 3,022.6-mm wheelbase. With better numbers, both under the hood and on the exterior, it’s clear why the 2016 Ram 1500 is the vehicle Maple Creek drivers turn to when they need a vehicle that delivers.

More Features to Enjoy

The 2016 Ram 1500 also shines in the comfort, convenience, and technology departments. While the Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500 each come with similar basic features, the Ram comes out on top by providing AB shoppers with a few more standard and available interior options. A few features you can find on the Ram, but not the GMC, include:

  • An optional CD player
  • A standard 12V power outlet
  • A Uconnect multimedia center with an 8.4-inch touchscreen
  • Siri Eyes Free
  • A special Do Not Disturb mode

By providing its drivers with more features, the 2016 Ram 1500 shows just how tech-savvy the modern truck can be.
