When it comes to power under the hood, it's easy to see that the larger engine in the more expensive Toyota Tundra will produce more horsepower and torque. However, the 4.3-liter V-6 engine under the hood of the Sierra still pushes out up to 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque, allowing you to tow up to 7,000 lbs. On top of that impressive capability, you also get to take advantage of the economical fuel efficiency ratings. The 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 gets up to 24 miles per gallon on the highway, and up to 18 miles per gallon in the city.
Another way the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 stands out from the Tundra competition is through the standard interior design features. Both pickups come with a standard four-speaker audio system and cloth seating trim, but the comfortable and potentially high-tech interior of the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 offers a more functional and user-friendly center console experience. Space for the optional touch screen with infotainment and smartphone connectivity means your Sierra 1500 is prepared to handle the tough jobs just as well as your need to stay connected to the world around you.
