    Truck Comparisons

    What are the differences between a Chevrolet Pickup Truck and a GMC Pickup Truck other than the price tag?

    GMC has a different front end, the plastic trim around the wheel wells, different wheels and GMC badges. Because the plastic trim is inset in the metal, the fenders themselves are different as well, front and back.

    Do GMC's have longer warranties like how Buicks/Cadillacs are longer than Chevrolets?

    Re: Truck Comparisons

    SLE in gmc gets the nice dash, where chevy you need an LTZ to get it. GMC SLT gets LED running lights not offered by chevy. GMC with z71 gets wood grain in the interior but chevy it's silver. SLT gmc gets real aluminum interior trim which is not available in chevy. GMC is red interior lighting vs the blue in chevy.

    SLE gets real aluminum, too. Sierra gets Chrome beltline and projector beams. SLT Crew 1500's have a package that you get chrome 20's, 6" steps, and Bose for $1195 after package savings discount. Trucks with that package have an additional $1000 rebate in the North Central region.

    Both of them, or neither of them, depending on your perspective. They are mechanically identical.

    The GMC has a door molding and wheel opening moldings which dress up the exterior considerably to the Silverado's plain Jane look unless you get a top LTZ trim level.

    Yeah the Z71 off-road packages are identical on both trucks. You'll need a leveling kit to pick your front end off the ground though.
    Current:
    2013 Toyota Camry 2.5L
    2012 Toyota Tacoma TRD off-road 4x4
    2000 Silverado Vortec 4.3L w/t (250,000 miles and counting)

    Past:

    1995 Toyota 4x4 pick-up
    2004 Silverado Z71 ext. cab 5.3L
    2011 GMC Sierra 4x4 crew cab 6.2L
    2008 Malibu LT2

    No....but they both have uncomfortable front seats and pathetic approach angle that handicaps them in light off road situations and around curbs.
