The Sierra has a standard full size spare so a flat doesn’t interrupt your work or a trip. A full size spare costs extra on the Silverado Without the option you must depend on a temporary spare, which limits mileage and speed before replacement.

The Sierra offers an available driver-adjustable suspension system. It allows the driver to choose between an extra-supple ride, reducing fatigue on long trips, or a sport setting, which allows maximum control for tricky roads. The Silverado’s suspension doesn’t offer adjustable shock absorbers.

The Sierra 1500 Short Bed Denali Crew Cab 4x4 handles at .77 G’s, while the Silverado Short Bed LT Trail Boss Crew Cab pulls only .69 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

The Sierra 1500 Short Bed AT4 Crew Cab executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 2.3 seconds quicker than the Silverado Short Bed LT Trail Boss Crew Cab (27.7 seconds @ .73 average G’s vs. 30 seconds @ .55 average G’s).
