2022 GMC Sierra 1500 vs 2022 Toyota Tundra

Canadians love their pick-up trucks, and it is ever more challenging to choose. 

 

If you are considering a 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited in Orleans and have looked at the 2022 Toyota Tundra, let’s help you decide which to take home by looking at a few key factors.

 

Price

Price

 

Every savvy business person is looking for good value for money, so the price is always a consideration. These trucks have very similar pricing, but the Sierra has more choice for less money. 

 

The Sierra ranges in price from $33,248 for the base model to $70,348 for the Denali 4X4 Crew Cab, while the Tundra is a little more expensive starting at $44,990 for the SR Double Cab SR and going up to $73,350 for the Platinum Crewmax 4X4.

 

Payload and Towing

Payload and Towing

 

For customers needing load and tow capacity, the Sierra would be an excellent choice. Sierra models with the 2.7L engine have a load capacity of 2,182lb, which rises to 2,278lb when the Sierra is equipped with the 5,3L EcoTec3 V8 or the 3.0l Duramax turbo-diesel. This excellent load-carrying is coupled to a maximum tow weight of 13,000lbs.

 

The Tundra comes with differing load bed configurations, but the maximum payload for the vehicle is 1,940 lbs, coupled with a tow weight of 12,000lbs.

 

This makes the Sierra an excellent choice for many economic sectors where carrying loads or towing trailers is an important factor. 

 

Drivetrains and Fuel Economy

Again, the Sierra with its choice of gas or diesel powertrains gives the consumer far more choice. It can be ordered with a gas-powered 2.7L Turbo, a 5.3L EcoTec3 V8, or a 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine. Alternatively, there is the diesel-powered 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel I6. 

 

The gas engines return good fuel consumption at 6,8kpl for the city or 8,5kpl for the highway but the diesel is more frugal at 9kpl for city driving or 12kpl for highway driving.

 

The Tundra comes with only one choice, a gas-powered 3.5-litre twin-turbo V-6, with fuel consumption of 8,2kpl for city driving and 7,4kpl on the highway

 

Final Thoughts

Final Thoughts

 

The two pick-ups are very closely matched, but with the choice of powertrains, the greater load capacity, and lower price the Sierra 1500 is our pick between them.

 

Both are competent vehicles and will suit many sectors, including the lucrative leisure sector. Both these trucks will take your family from worksite to camping and to a black-tie event effortlessly.
