Both of these trucks offer top capability and technology, but only one of them is right for any given buyer. Both the F-150 and the Sierra are available in multiple body styles and with a variety of engine and feature options.
Some of the most important feature options for truck owners is a vehicle's ability to tow and haul. The 2016 GMC Sierra is well-equipped in this regard, with Trailer Sway Control and Hill Start Assist, as well as an available Integrated Trailer Brake Controller and available rearview camera. However, the 2016 Ford F-150 has all of that available, as well as a few extra available goodies like Dynamic Hitch Assist (which adds trailer guidelines to the rearview mirror for easy solo hitching) and Pro Trailer Backup Assist (which allows a driver to precisely adjust the trailer's direction when backing up with the turn of a knob in the dash).
The aluminum advantages of the 2016 Ford F-150
The 2016 Ford F-150 also has an advantage compared to all other comers thanks to a body made of military-grade, high-strength aluminum. Wrapped over an extra-strong quality steel frame, aluminum means that the F-150 is up to 700 pounds lighter than previous models, but is even more dent-resistant, and completely rust-free. The 2016 GMC Sierra can't make that promise. The weight savings from aluminum siding also allows the 2016 Ford F-150 to achieve excellent gas mileage without compromising on towing and hauling capability. With up to 12,200 pounds of trailering when properly equipped, that's impressive.
When comparing the 2016 Ford F-150 vs 2016 GMC Sierra, it's also worth looking at price. While both of these vehicles can deliver on premium towing, and technology related to practicality and comfort alike, the 2016 Ford F-150 starts with an MSRP more than a thousand dollars lower than the Sierra 1500.
