When you look at modern pickup trucks, they may all look equally capable and powerful. We hate to break it to you, though; not all of them are the same.
They may sport a stylish body and show high technical exterior equipment to imply that it’s capable of taking on rough terrain. Despite that, a buyer must consider many factors, like approach and departure angle, ground clearance, towing capability, and more.
Their cabins may also showcase a dazzling array of features, like large screens and USB ports, but fall short when it comes to ease of use. Let’s face it; if it’s hard to operate, you might as well not use it.
As the popularity of pickup trucks continues to rise, two models have risen to the top of the list. The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 and the 2022 RAM 1500 are both very competent pickup trucks with the looks to match.
We here at Bill Cramer Chevrolet Buick GMC will give you the lowdown on these two amazing trucks, so you see for yourself, which one is truly the best. If you have the time, visit our showroom in Panama City, FL, so you can see the 2022 Sierra 1500 in the flesh.
The 2022 Sierra 1500 immediately gets a highly visible advantage once you open the doors. The cabin equipment it showcases not only looks good but are levels better than what you find in the 2022 RAM 1500.
For entertainment, the 2022 Sierra 1500 offers a 7-inch diagonal color touch screen that manages not only audio but also the various settings of the vehicle. It comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Plus, it also offers Bluetooth® streaming, so you can listen to your Spotify playlist through its six speakers hassle-free.
Plan on carrying valuable cargo in the cabin? The seating in the 2022 Sierra 1500 is configurable to accommodate various shapes and sizes of cargo. The front seat splits 40/20/40 while the rear bench seat split-folds 60/40.
Other highly appreciated cabin amenities include two USB ports, rear air vents for equal front and rear cooling in the cabin, and a 3.5-inch diagonal monochromatic Driver Information Center.
Under the hood is where the 2022 Sierra 1500 totally outshines the RAM 1500. Using a smaller, yet enhanced, 2.7L turbo engine, it puts out 310 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. That is 20% more torque than the previous engine of the same size. The result is a maximum trailering capacity of 9,400 lbs. It is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Meanwhile, the RAM 1500 uses a larger 3.7.6L V6 24V VVT eTorque engine that’s only able to muster 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. It sends power to the wheels via an eight-speed automatic 850RE transmission.
Despite putting out more power, the smaller engine displacement of the 2022 Sierra 1500 is a major factor in fuel mileage. It’s not surprising then that it gets more miles to the gallon compared to the 2022 RAM 1500 whether in the city, highway, or combined driving conditions.
When it comes to safety, the 2022 Sierra 1500 comes packing. It has StabiliTrak (GMC’s electronic stability control system with traction control), traction control, brake assist, and trailer sway control.
Other notable safety features include hill start assist, LED daytime running lamps, six airbags, dual-stage frontal airbags for driver and front outboard passenger, seat-mounted side-impact airbags for driver and front outboard passenger, head-curtain airbags for outboard seating positions. It even comes with a front outboard Passenger Sensing System for frontal outboard passenger air bags and illuminates a status light that indicates whether the airbag is on or off.
If it’s a complete truck you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place. The 2022 Sierra 1500 isn’t just all muscle. It comes with great looks, high-tech cabin features, and advanced safety features. Most of all, it’s powerful yet efficient.
