Picking the right pickup truck is a challenge, with many options available at varying degrees of power and luxury. Some options are better suited for heavy workloads, while others are luxury vehicles that are best used for a drive through town. Regardless, we’ll be comparing the 2023 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 to discover what each vehicle offers best.

The Silverado comes in with a starting price of $57,829*, which is close to the Sierra’s starting cost of $59,029*. However, the range of trims offered by both models does differ, with the Sierra having eight compared to the nine offerings on the Silverado. 


The highest starting price for a trim for the Chevrolet truck is $90,429*, while the GMC option’s highest trim tier starts at $101,854*. With the trim tiers, the difference in cost is far more noticeable. 


Power and Performance

The pickup trucks both use a 2.7-litre TurboMax engine as the standard option for their base trims. This engine has a performance of 310 horsepower and 430 lb-ft, giving each vehicle a relatively high amount of performance for the standard tier. 


Higher trim offerings start to differ, with the highest trims having a 6.2-litre EcoTec3 V8 engine for the Silverado and a 3.0-litre Duramax Turbo Diesel engine as the standard for the Sierra. However, the 6.2-litre EcoTec3 V8 is available for an additional $1,775*.

The interior cabins of both vehicles are comfortable, with both models featuring a 40/20/40 front bench seat. Additionally, both models come with under-seat storage for additional cargo space. The rear seat for the trucks is a 60/40 folding split that helps with storage and seating. The seating trims differ, with the Silverado having cloth material while the Sierra comes with a vinyl material for its seats.


Technology and Connectivity Features

When it comes to speakers, the two models are equal, with each one’s base trim having a six-speaker system. The standard infotainment system for the Silverado and Sierra is a 7-inch touchscreen.
