Those who seek to have a lot of power and performance on the road can get plenty of use out of driving a pickup truck. Although there are many makes and models available, the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 and RAM 1500 are top-selling vehicles for their reliability and advanced features. Here are a few of the top comparisons between both models to ensure you find the best car to test drive at Buick GMC Fort Walton Beach.


The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 comes standard with a V6 engine and has two V8 engines available for more hauling and towing power. It comes with firm steering and an excellent turning radius despite its large size. Those who select the base trim can take advantage of 285 horsepower with 305 pound-feet of torque. The advanced suspension system allows it to ride smoothly and glide over harsh potholes and bumps on the road. It manages to still feel nimble even as one of the largest pickup trucks on the road.

The performance of the 2020 RAM 1500 proves the vehicle is capable and versatile. It comes with both V6 and V8 powertrains. The rear suspension system makes the ride smoother than expected on bumpy roads. The vehicle has a bit of body roll on winding roads and doesn’t feel as composed when you’re riding in the GMC Sierra.

Exterior Features

The oversized grille on the GMC Sierra 1500 at Buick GMC Fort Walton Beach is one of its most attractive exterior features and pairs well with the large headlights. The vehicle has a bold and commanding stance, causing it to look more robust than the 2020 RAM 1500. Chrome details are abundant, which offsets some of the rugged details and makes the car appear upscale and more expensive.

The exterior styling of the RAM 1500 is less exciting than the GMC Sierra because the front of the car looks outdated and doesn’t have any flashy or upscale features. The body has a lot of black plastic materials and parts, causing it to look less upscale. The rear also looks slightly bland. Fortunately, the large windows on the body offer more convenience and increase the visibility while riding in the front or back.

New safety features are also provided with lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control. The panoramic sunroof and leather upholstery make the car feel luxurious but come at a high price tag.
