Quality & Features
While the Silverado is meant to provide more value, the Sierra is the better of the two trucks in terms of overall quality and features. With the range-topping Denali trim, the Sierra is one of the most luxurious trucks you can buy, complete with extravagances like real wood trim and perforated leather-appointed seats with heating and ventilation. The Sierra also has more tech features like wireless phone charging and a Bose® premium audio system.
Though similarly sized and proportioned, the Silverado and Sierra both offer something different to look at. For instance, the Sierra’s headlights are more traditionally shaped, with a recess in the middle to create a three-dimensional effect, and signature C-shaped LED accent strips. The Silverado, on the other hand, gets a lower grille chrome and narrower, notched headlights whose design varies more significantly depending on the trim.
