In that regard, Benton, AR, and Bryant, AR area residents have come to rely on the Ram 1500 throughout the decades as it's one of the most durable and hardworking trucks around. You're a sharp shopper and are likely looking to see how the Ram 1500 stacks up against its competitors. Check out our breakdown of the Ram 1500 and the GMC Sierra 1500 below to get a little more familiar with the Ram truck before contacting our sales team to set up a test drive.

Standard Powertrains

Getting the most bang for your buck is a priority for shoppers near Little Rock. The Ram 1500 sports a base 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque which is paired to an eight-speed transmission. The GMC Sierra 1500, on the other hand, touts a 4.3-liter V6 engine that produces 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque that's mated to a six-speed transmission. In terms of performance, the Ram 1500 offers slightly less torque, but still provides ample towing and hauling power while also using a transmission with two extra gears for an optimal driving experience.

Maximum Capabilities

The Ram 1500 can tow up to 12,750 pounds when armed with the available 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine with eTorque. The GMC Sierra 1500 offers a slightly less robust towing capability at 12,500 pounds when equipped with the optional EcoTec3 6.2-liter V8 engine.

Interior Luxury

The Ram 1500 boasts a top of the line interior arrangement on its upper trim levels while offering itself as a bare-bones workhorse in its entry-level trim configuration. If you're seeking a premium ride with plenty of interior luxury and style, the Ram half-ton truck offers genuine leather seating surfaces, a 17-speaker Harman Kardon Premium Audio system, and a panoramic sunroof. The GMC Sierra also offers plush leather upholstery but no expansive sunroof. We'd suggest sticking with the Ram truck for peak comfort.
