When comparing vehicles that share the same platform, it is sometimes difficult to discern the differences, but it’s when you really look at the details that you can see that they are truly two different vehicles. The 2019 Chevy Silverado vs 2019 GMC Sierra is a comparison that to some may seem irrelevant, however, these are some of the most important comparisons. In the past, when manufacturers use the same platform they have been criticized for selling the same vehicle, so it is important for them to differentiate themselves from each other.
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and the 2019 GMC Sierra have pick-ups in every class. However, the light truck class is their most competitive segment. Being as this is the most popular pick-up truck class, the competition is excruciatingly competitive. With trucks such as the F-150, which is battling the Toyota Corolla as the top-selling vehicle of all time; and the Ram 1500, which has won more “Truck of the Year” awards then seems possible; GM has a lot to prove.
In all ways mechanical, the Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra are identical. There are no differences in engine, transmission, or transfer case of the two trucks. Mechanically, the only difference lies in different suspension tuning which comes from slight shock and spring adjustments. The basic architecture of the trucks is also the same, which gave the designers a similar platform to start with, creating a challenge for them to differentiate the two brands.
Yet once you zoom into the details, it becomes clear what sets these two trucks apart, and what makes them some of the best selling trucks in the market. Let's dive in to see which truck truly comes out on top!
