The Denali trim adds a generous dose of luxury to these trucks, offering premium features like plush leather seating, upgraded tech, and plenty of standard driver-assist technologies.

Cabin Size Options

Both trucks offer the choice of three cab styles, including the crew cab, double cab, and regular cab. The interior dimensions of the same cab styles across both trucks are mostly the same. Whether you want to maximize passenger capacity with the crew cab or focus more on carrying cargo with the regular cab, you can find the right body style to suit your needs, regardless of which truck you choose.

Towing and Hauling Power

Choosing between a light-duty truck like the Sierra 1500 or a heavy-duty truck like the Sierra typically comes down to capability. How much can a truck handle when the time comes to gear up for your next outing with heavy trailers and loaded truck beds? If you want to tow small boats and haul ATVs, then the Sierra 1500 offers plenty of power. However, if you have bigger jobs in mind, such as towing big campers, then the Sierra 2500 might be the way to go. Here's a look at what these two trucks can accomplish when properly equipped.

GMC Sierra 1500: When properly outfitted, the Sierra 1500 can tow up to 9,600 pounds, making it a solid choice if you need a dependable light-duty truck that can help you tow heavy trailers around Calabasas and Camarillo.
