The first pickup truck in the GMC catalog is that of the GMC Canyon. After that, you have a variety of GMC Sierra variants, including the 1500, the HD, the Limited, and more. However, for those starting their search, it’s best to start with the basics. So, with that in mind, we’ll look only at the 2019 GMC Canyon and the initial Sierra pickup, that being the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500. How do these 2019 GMC pickup trucks compare?

Keep in mind that all of these statistics represent the initial offerings of each model. That is to say, with different trim levels, cabs, beds, engine options, drivetrains, and more, a lot of these numbers are malleable. You need to find and make your very own customized GMC pickup truck that’s a perfect fit. Still, we hope this offers a starting course into the subject.
