Drivers looking for the right full-size, light-duty truck may be able to find their match in one of the models in this 2018 Ram 1500 vs 2018 GMC Sierra comparison. While both of these models offer attractive dimensions in several body styles (including regular cab, quad cab and crew cab options) we like the immediate value in horsepower and price that the Ram option delivers.

The Tradesman base trim of the 2018 Ram 1500 not only comes with a lower MSRP than the 2018 GMC Sierra 1500, but it also brings advantages when it comes to its base engine. The standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine on the Ram truck offers 305 horsepower, while the V-6 available on the 2018 GMC Sierra has only 285 horsepower. When it comes to optional engines, the 2018 Ram 1500 also stands out by offering the only diesel engine in this comparison, which can help drivers get fuel efficient driving without accepting any compromises on truck performance.
