A light-duty pickup truck comes in handy when driving and working through the Mount Pocono, Tobyhanna, Scranton, Pocono Pines and Blakeslee areas. With so many to choose from, however, finding the right one for your needs can be a real challenge. Just about every manufacturer has at least one on the market.

The Ford F-150 and the GMC Sierra are two of the best options to choose from, but only one can be right for you. 

Learn about the differences between these two light-duty pickup trucks and discover which is best suited for your needs with our Ford F-150 vs GMC Sierra comparison.

Ford F-150 vs GMC Sierra: Towing Capabilities

Before all else, trucks need to be able to work as hard as you. The Sierra can do a lot, including tow up to 12,500 pounds of cargo. While that overshadows most pickups in this class, it can't quite measure up to the F-150's 13,200 pound maximum towing capacity. Not only does the F-150 outclass the Sierra, but it outclasses every other model with its best in class towing capacity.

Additionally, the F-150 tow more, able to carry more in the bed. With a 3,270 pound payload capacity, the F-150 achieves another best in class title. This is possible due to its high strength advanced materials in its construction that are lightweight and sturdy.

F-150 vs Sierra: Engine Performance

Everything these trucks can do is possible due to what's under the hood. In terms of power, both have quite a bit. At their base models, the F-150 only has a slight advantage with 290 horsepower compared to the Sierra's 285 horsepower. 

However, the F-150 cements its superiority at the higher levels. When both equipped with powerful V8 engines, the Sierra gets 355 horsepower while the F-150 gets an incredible 395.

Don't think all that extra power means you have to sacrifice fuel economy. When comparing the least fuel efficient trim levels for both trucks, they both earn an EPA-estimated 17 mpg combined even with the F-150's 40 more horsepower. 

If you compare highway mileage directly, the F-150 actually performs better with an EPA-estimated 21 mpg compared to the Sierra's EPA-estimated 20 mpg.

Media & Technology

Inside these trucks, you'll find some of the latest tech you'd expect to see in a sedan. Both feature incredible infotainment systems like the Sierra's available 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 4G LTE Wi-Fi and more. 

However, the F-150 features SYNC 3, one of the most advanced infotainment systems on the market with everything the Sierra includes and more like remote control from your smartphone.

The F-150 technology also features the class-exclusive pro trailer backup assist. This  advanced feature allows you to directly control your trailer. With just the simple turning of a knob, you can steer your trailer where you want it to go. 

Backing up with a trailer attached is one of the hardest things you'll have to do, but this feature makes it easier than ever. The Sierra has no similar feature.
