GMC Sierra vs. Chevy Silverado: Interior Amenities

Your truck’s cabin sets the mood for your Holly Springs commutes. As you decide between the Silverado or Sierra, you’ll want to consider what type of driving experience you’d like to enjoy on long-haul commutes and weekend road trips. Inside the GMC Sierra 1500, you’ll find comfort-focused materials and refined accents, like:

  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Premium cloth upholstery or available leather-appointed upholstery
  • Chrome trim accents
  • Available heated seats
  • Integrated seating storage

The Chevy Silverado 1500 interior is a little less refined than the GMC Sierra. You’ll find more vinyl in the cabin, and the interior storage is located behind the seats rather than being conveniently integrated into them.

GMC Sierra vs. Chevy Silverado: Safety Features

Whether you choose the Silverado or Sierra, you can expect to find GM-exclusive safety features like Teen Driver Technology and OnStar® Safety & Security. Both trucks can also be equipped with a brand-exclusive safety suite that includes a similar lineup of driver-assistive safety features, but the safety suite becomes available on a lower trim level at a lower price in the GMC Sierra than in the Chevy Silverado. Some of the features you can get with the safety suite include:

  • HD Rear Vision Camera
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • And more
