If you’re in the market for a lightweight but powerful pickup, both the 2020 Silverado and the 2020 Sierra are top-notch choices. However, there are a couple key differences you should be aware of as you choose the truck that will serve you best on your Elk River job sites. Check out our head-to-head comparison below.

2020 Chevrolet Silverado vs. 2020 GMC Sierra: Pricing

Right off the bat, you’ll see that the Silverado starts at almost a thousand dollars less than the Sierra — even though a quick look at the specs on the Silverado vs. Sierra will tell you that these two powerhouses will offer similar performance on Monticello roads.

However, they do differ on highway MPG. The Sierra will get you 30 MPG, but with 33, the Silverado is the clear choice if you expect to spend lots of time on the highways around Elk River and %%di_city_3%% heading to and from job sites.

Key Features: Silverado 1500 vs. Sierra 1500

Both pick-ups come in 3 configurations that allow you to lengthen the cabin or truck bed, as well as add power and technology features.

If you need to stay connected while at your Anoka jobsite or campsite, seamless smartphone integration can turn the Silverado into your mobile office or 4-G hotspot. Choose from these available technologies:

  • Apple CarPlay®† compatible
  • Android Auto™† compatible
  • Available 4G LTE Wi-Fi®† Hotspot
  • Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system†
  • myChevrolet Mobile App†
  • Chevrolet Connected Access†
  • New Available SiriusXM® with 360L†

The Sierra boasts similar smartphone integration as the Silverado, plus advanced technology features to simplify your tow jobs and boost your audio experience as you drive through Elk River:

  • Available ProGrade Trailering System
    • In-vehicle Trailering App
    • Integrated high-resolution camera
    • Available Accessory MultiPro Audio System by Kicker®
    • Available SiriusXM® 360L

If you’re looking for more practical features that will help you haul more, the Silverado’s bed size can’t be beat — whether you choose the base Work Truck trim or the top-of-the-line High Country. Ceck out what you get with the Silverado’s ultra-functional bed:

  • Up to 20% more standard cargo volume than the competition
  • Best-in-class bed width on standard and long bed
  • Best-in-class bed length for Standard Bed and Short Bed
  • Best-in-class standard cargo bed volume
  • 12 standard tie-downs — three times more than any competitor
  • Durabed roll-formed high-strength steel

While both the Silverado and the Sierra will get the job done, we think the Silverado offers more of the feature you really need on the job site or on the trail, like best-in-class bed length and cargo volume, the Silverado does more of what a pick-up should. When you add this to better highway MPG and a lower price, we think that tips the scales decidedly in favor of the Silverado.
