Test bench | Competition from the GMC Sierra

The Ford F-150, RAM 1500 and Toyota Tundra are competitors to the GMC Sierra.

Ford F-150

Price: starting at $48,450 (2023)

More chic than the Silverado, the Sierra mainly targets the most luxurious versions of Ford’s F-150. Revised for 2024, the F-150 has an ever-changing range of configurations and engines (including a hybrid). The naturally aspirated V6 leaves the scene in favor of the supercharged 2.7-liter which produces more power (+35 horsepower) and torque (+135 lb-ft). In addition, Ford cuts a new, obviously smaller, opening into the original leaf for easier access when a boom cylinder is used. Furthermore, Ford still offers a fully electrified version of its F-150, the Lightning. Always one step ahead.

The Ram 1500

When it comes to comfort, the Ram 1500 is in a class of its own. Its air suspension gives it a smoother ride and also reduces the “turbulence” caused by the trailer or tent trailer when towing a load. Compared to the Sierra, the Ram 1500 is, in its most equipped liveries, just as soundproofed and comfortable. During the first quarter of 2024, Ram will introduce an all-new version of its pickup truck (our photo). This will replace the 5.7-liter V8 with a supercharged 3-liter inline-six. The fully electrified version of the Ram is expected at the end of 2024.

Toyota Tundra

Price: starting at $54,401.50 (2023)

The Toyota Tundra

Even though American manufacturers largely dominate the category, Toyota persists. The third generation of the Tundra is more comfortable than the previous one, but still lags behind its rivals. The presence of a hybrid mechanism allows consumption to be considerably reduced, but only when the Tundra does not have to make the effort of towing a trailer, for example. In this case, consumption surpasses that of the Sierra equipped with the 6.2-liter V8. Although it doesn’t offer as many configurations as the GMC, the Toyota has so far proven to be more reliable.
