Sierra vs. Silverado: Interior

When you open the doors to the cabin of the GMC Sierra 1500, you will be immersed in quality materials, which include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome trim accents, and comforting interior lighting. You can choose to upgrade to add heated front seats as well as leather-appointed upholstery with perforated inserts. 

The main difference between the Sierra and Silverado when it comes to their interiors is not if they offer extra storage space, but the format in which it’s offered. Namely, the Silverado offers storage inside the rear seats instead of behind them like the Sierra. If you are looking for a more refined truck with easier access to interior storage, the Sierra is sure to impress you.

Sierra vs. Silverado: Safety Features

Many Kenner drivers appreciate the Teen Driver tech, OnStar® Safety & Security, along with a Pro-Grade Warranty that is available on the Sierra. You can also depend on the Sierra’s following available safety features to help prevent or mitigate collisions:

  • HD Rear Vision Camera
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning

In contrast, the Silverado offers similar safety features that will cost you more as optional upgrades; they include:

  • Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • …And more!
