For Metairie truck lovers, there’s plenty of competition for their attention. It often comes down to Chevy vs. GMC — which will suit your driving and work needs better, the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 or the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500? While their names are similar, there’s plenty to differentiate these trucks for New Orleans-area drivers. Leson Chevrolet compares them for you below!
With eight trim levels for the Silverado and six for the Sierra, you have even more to choose from. The price breakdown is a good place to start, with Chevy vs. GMC going to Chevy in this round. While their base models are similarly priced, there’s a large jump between their top tier trim levels:

2020 Silverado 1500 Work Truck (Entry-Level): $28,300 MSRP
2020 Silverado 1500 High Country (Top Tier): $53,300 MSRP

Silverado vs. Sierra — Engines
With this large difference in prices, how do the engines of the entry-level and top-tier configurations compare?

2020 Silverado 1500 Work Truck: 285-hp 4.3L V6
2020 Silverado 1500 High Country: 355-hp 5.3L V8
