If you’re searching for a new pickup truck to give your Lakeland rides a serious upgrade, you might have come across the GMC Sierra or Chevy Silverado. These models are both fresh for 2022 and share a lot of similarities, since both GMC and Chevy share the General Motors parent company. However, there are also a lot of unique distinctions to be aware of before making a decision. Kelley Buick GMC, Inc. has everything you need to know comparing the GMC Sierra vs. Chevy Silverado in the guide below, including dimensions, safety features, and technology.



GMC Sierra vs. Chevy Silverado: Interior

The GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado are very similar in terms of their frame, although the GMC Sierra does offer second-row passengers more space than the Silverado. Where these pickup trucks begin to differ is in the features and technology you’ll find inside the cabin. Being a more upscale truck, the GMC Sierra offers a wide variety of luxury materials and upholstery that the Chevy does not, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sound-absorbing technology, thoughtful interior lighting, and stylish chrome accents.

Here are the interior dimensions for the GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado:

GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab Interior Dimensions:

  • Front Hip Room: 60.90 inches
  • Second Head Room: 40.12 inches
  • Second Leg Room: 43.40 inches
  • Second Shoulder Room: 65.16 inches
  • Second Hip Room: 60.24 inches

Chevy Silverado 1500 Regular Cab Interior Dimensions:

  • Front Hip Room: 60.90 inches
  • Second Head Room: 39.88 inches
  • Second Leg Room: 35.24 inches
  • Second Shoulder Room: 64.88 inches
  • Second Hip Room: 60.24 inches

GMC Sierra vs. Chevy Silverado: Safety Features

When choosing between the Silverado or Sierra, it’s important to look at the standard and available safety features. Luckily, both models have a lot to offer when it comes to protection and driver assistance, so you can rest easy knowing you’ll be safe on the Winterhaven roads no matter what. The Sierra and Silverado both come standard-equipped with technology like forward collision mitigation, advanced rear vision cameras, lane change and rear cross-traffic alert, and six airbags. However, the Sierra also comes with two extra systems that the Silverado does not feature:

  • LED Daytime Running Lamps: These daytime lights make it easier for drivers and pedestrians to see you no matter the weather, even if it’s a bright and sunny day.
  • Teen Driver Tech: If you have a new driver in the family, the Sierra is here to help. The Teen Driver Tech system can limit certain features, such as speaker volume. It also monitors your teen’s driving habits and provides you with an in-vehicle report card, so you can give constructive feedback to your teen driver.
