In the full-size truck world, connoisseurs like to measure themselves against each other on construction sites or during discussions at the restaurant after a week of hard work to promote their products or, as we would say in Quebecois language, to tear apart their tablemate on the advantages of driving one truck over another. Comparisons between full-size trucks are numerous, and for good reason, since there are so many models, variants, powertrains and innovative technological features on the Quebec, Canadian and American markets.

Réjean Laporte, proud dealer of the American manufacturer with the blue oval for 62 years in Saint-Norbert in Lanaudière, near Saint-Gabriel-de-Brandon, Saint-Cuthbert, Berthierville and Joliette, specializes not only in the sale and leasing of Ford cars and SUVs, but also and above all in the sale and leasing of full-size trucks, including the Ford F-150.
The match between two full-size trucks: F-150 and Sierra

While the 2020 GMC Sierra ushers in a new generation by offering great towing capacity, a MultiPro tailgate, a carbon fiber body and an efficient Allison transmission for towing on the road, truck connoisseurs like to feel the power and with the F-150, They'll definitely feel the legendary performance and power of this behemoth, which comes in six engine versions - depending on the version chosen - that cover five types of V6 configurations: a 2, 7-liter Ecoboost turbo V6, 3.3-liter V6, 3.5-liter Ecoboost turbo V6, 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 and Power Stroke Diesel V6, and if that wasn't enough, the F-150 comes to us with a 5.0-liter V8. So, Ford's popular Raptor (with 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque) remains ideal for long-distance expeditions and demanding off-road terrain, and features an upgraded suspension with FOX's Continuously Variable Compression Control (CVC) shocks, while the 2020 Sierra delivers 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque from its 6.6-liter V8 engine; in this respect, the F-150 is quite a bit ahead of its gasoline-powered rival, the 2020 Sierra.

While both vehicles have excellent road manners, the Sierra is often said to offer elegance and comfort, but on closer inspection, the interior layout is not to everyone's liking and its design remains questionable in the eyes of experts, while the F-150 offers a spacious cabin with good rear legroom (double cab) and plenty of storage space, plus a very user-friendly SYNC 3 system; the same cannot be said of the 2020 Sierra with its very conservative interior.

Even more interesting is the towing assistance system already present on the F-150, a system that assists you throughout your towing and parking maneuvers. If in 2019, the Sierra did not yet have such a system, it is new for 2020. Ford will have managed to get ahead of its competitor and bring in new features in Reverse Pro, which makes backing up and parking a trailer easier than ever, a feature launched in 2016 that was a first in the truck industry; another highlight for the 2020 F-150, while the Sierra is still in its infancy.

In short, while these are two very competitive full-size trucks with undeniable strengths, the Ford F-150 has been on the road for more than half a century; it has proven itself and the American manufacturer doesn't hesitate to innovate, to offer the widest range of powertrains on the full-size truck market, so much so that other truck manufacturers are often lagging behind Ford's innovations.
