2017 1/2 Ton Truck-Off - Sierra vs F150

Anybody compared the two yet?

I would probably be looking at a sierra Denali 6.2 vs lariat f150 with the ecoboost.


With it being the first year of the 10 speed transmission and new ecoboost engine... definitely gives me pause on the 150, but so do the baffling issues with the GMC (sierras are affected as well, right?)

Anyone driven both?

Not that I pay close attention, but are there baffling issues in the Sierra? I hadn't heard that - only in the Tahoe/ Yukon/ Suburban line. Fortunately we don't have that problem in the wife's Tahoe.

Now, there is a different tune on the 3.5 in the raptor making a lot more HP... but port and direct injection rolled out over all 3.5l V6 ecoboosts

GMC/Chev are looking good right now.
Chev Z71 with Midnight Blackout speaks to me.

Must be pretty new. Was looking at ordering and almost bought a new 150 a month or so ago.

I saw that too.
It was only for the "Raptor" model on the order sheet.

If you do go with GMC, take a serious look at the 6.5' box instead of the shortbox. Way better ride. I just got my '17 Sierra with the "long box" and have zero regrets.
