The GMC Sierra 1500 Takes on the Competition

We know you have a lot of options when shopping for a reliable, powerful, full-sized truck in South West, IL. But when it comes to high-end craftsmanship and world-class materials, we also know you'd be hard-pressed to find another pickup as great as the new GMC pickup truck lineup that's available now at Steve Schmitt, Inc. We have a collection of options, including the GMC Sierra 1500, in stock that come out ahead of competing models in several key areas, and we can help you choose the best fit for your needs.

GMC Sierra 1500 vs. Nissan Titan

  • Passenger space. Whether commuting with coworkers in Collinsville or on a family road trip outside of the Metro East area, you want your new truck to be comfortable, and the GMC Sierra 1500 has you covered. Like other new GMC models, the Sierra 1500 interior is crafted with high-quality materials. But, more than that, this model also offers a greater amount of space inside than the competing Nissan Titan. For example, the front seat of all Sierra 1500 styles has more headroom and legroom, and if you choose the crew cab with a full backseat, the rear also has five inches more room for legs than the Titan.
  • Towing capacity. Towing a camper in Southern, IL is always easier with the GMC Sierra 1500, which has a higher capacity than the Nissan Titan. Look for more than 12,000 pounds of towing ability with our GMC model, while the Nissan tows just around 9,000 pounds.
  • Power. The greater towing capacity for the Sierra 1500 is thanks in large part to its wider range of powerful engines. Whereas the Nissan Titan has just one engine available for its entire lineup, the GMC Sierra 1500 has a menu of five impressive options to choose from. Plus, top power for the Sierra 1500 is 420 horsepower, while it's 400 horsepower for the Titan.

GMC Sierra 1500 vs. Toyota Tundra

  • Customization options. From Edwardsville to Greenville, IL, drivers like choices when shopping for a new set of wheels, and the GMC Sierra 1500 has them. With our pickup, you get your pick of three cab styles, three bed lengths, six trims, and more. However, with the Toyota Tundra, your options are limited. For example, there is no two-door regular cab style for Toyota drivers who like a good pickup but don't need a backseat.
  • Engine options. Not only does the GMC Sierra 1500 allow for more personalization in style, but it also allows for more customization in power as well. There are five great engines available for the Sierra 1500, and just two for the Toyota model.
  • Utility ratings. Pound for pound, the GMC Sierra 1500 can help you get more done than the Toyota Tundra. While the Toyota pickup tows just around 10,000 pounds, the Sierra 1500 tops out at more than 12,000 pounds. Additionally, when hauling heavy objects in the bed, the GMC model has a payload capacity of 2,180 pounds, compared to 1,940 pounds for the Toyota.

GMC Sierra 1500 vs. Honda Ridgeline

  • Cab options. With three styles to choose from with the GMC Sierra 1500, you get to choose which model works best for you and whether or not you need a backseat. But with the Honda Ridgeline, there are no options. Every truck in the Honda lineup is a crew cab with four doors and a backseat.
  • Engines. As with style, the GMC Sierra 1500 also has more powertrains to choose from than the Honda truck. Every Ridgeline gets its power from a V6 engine, while the Sierra 1500 has a menu of five from which to choose.
  • Interior space. The GMC Sierra 1500 measures a little longer than the Honda Ridgeline, which translates to more interior space and room to stretch out in than the competing model. Look for extra inches of headroom, shoulder room, and legroom in the GMC Sierra 1500 compared to the Honda Ridgeline.
