If you are considering a light-duty pickup, then you most likely want one that can handle heavy attachments with ease. Comparing the 2022 Ram 1500 to the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500, you will quickly see which model reigns supreme in the trailering category.
The Ram can be fitted with the Trailer Tow Group on any trim level. This adds the coveted Class IV receiver hitch that allows for overweight pulling. When combined with the 5.7-litre V8 motor, the maximum capacity is about 5,783 kg (12,750 lbs). Plus, you never have to worry about the lights and brakes as they can be quickly hooked up via the 7-pin wiring harness. Extended side mirrors allow you to check on your surroundings without pulling over, and the integrated trailer brake controller gives you more command over stopping at high speeds. If you opt for the Rebel, the electronic-locking rear differential from ELocker will also be included.
On the other hand, the GMC Sierra 1500 is eligible for the Trailering Package. While this does add a 2-inch receiver hitch and pre-wired connectors, it is missing the longer side mirrors and trailer brake controller.
