Serving Renton, Seattle, and Tacoma, WA
The 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 has a next-generation design with efficient technology under the hood. This light-duty pickup truck is available with crew and double cabs. Also carrying a light-duty label, the 2019 Ford F-150 is a robust pickup truck with several cab sizes. Let's take a look at how these American vehicles compare in performance, handling and utility.
The 2019 GMC Sierra has the Dynamic Fuel Management technology that controls combustion based on numerous factors. This innovative system engages and disengages some of the cylinders to optimize efficiency. More than a dozen different stroke combinations are managed by the Dynamic Fuel Management. This class-exclusive technology is integrated into the vehicle's 5.3 L and 6.2 L V8 engine blocks. Having an all-new design, the 3.0 L Duramax engine has a turbocharger that accepts only diesel fuel. This V6 powertrain is tuned to generate instant torque on demand. Although they also have turbochargers, the 2019 Ford F-150's EcoBoost engines lack any efficiency-optimizing features that are comparable to the DFM system.

Additionally, the Integrated Dual Exhaust guarantees smooth combustion in inclement weather. Having the patented Rancho design, the vehicle's monotube shocks provide 2 inches of extra ground clearance compared to a standard suspension system.
