Power Battle: 2021 Ram 2500 vs 2021 GMC Sierra 2500 in Saskatchewan

June 2,2022

Are you in the market for a heavy-duty pickup that offers a Best-In-Class horsepower output? If you answered yes, then you need to take a peek at the new 2021 Ram 2500 lineup. Compared to the 2021 GMC Sierra 2500, it is easy to see how much better it is.   The standard 6.4-litre HEMI V8 motor delivers 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission and your choice of a 2x4 or 4x4 drivetrain, this truck can tow up to 7,956 kg (17,540 lbs) without breaking a sweat. Thanks to Variable Valve Timing (VVT), the fuel is transmitted to the engine without a hitch.   On the other hand, the GMC Sierra model usually comes with a slightly larger 6.6-litre V8. Since it is a bit bigger, you might think that it is stronger. However, this is not the case. It only pushes out 401 hp and 464 lb-ft of torque. Mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission and your choice of drivetrain, it can pull up to 6,577 kg (14,500 lbs). That is quite a difference from the Ram.   Want to learn more about the Ram 2500?
