When you need a pickup truck that can work just as hard as you in Salt Lake City, there are two giants in the segment: the Ford F-150 and the GMC Sierra. Year after year, these powerhouses go head-to-head on the Draper roads – and we’re here to shed some light on the differences. While both models are fantastic choices for the driver on the go, you might find one is more suited to your needs than the other. Let’s take a look at the highlights below, and explore quality used trucks in Utah with National Auto Plaza.

Ford F-150 vs. GMC Sierra: Performance

It’s hard to argue with success, and the Ford F-150 has remained one of the best-selling pickup trucks for years. The Ford F-150 excels the most when it comes to capabilities, offering best-in-class available payload and towing capabilities consistently. Plus, its durability and adaptability make it one of the most popular used trucks in Utah.

However, the GMC Sierra is right on its heels with impressive specs all on its own. While the GMC Sierra often can’t compete with the highest trims in terms of performance, the base specs are typically very similar. So, depending on your needs, you might find that either option suits your needs well in the Murray.
