Four engines are offered on the 2015 Ford F-150 -- a 3.5L V6 with 325 horses, a 365 hp 2.7L V6, a 3.5L EcoBoost with 282 horses, and a robust 5.0L V8 with 385 horses of power. They're mated to an electronic 6-speed automatic transmission with a selectable tow/haul mode. A 4WD system is optional. By contrast, the GMC Sierra 1500 only offers 3 engines choices -- a 4.3L Ecotec V6 with 285 horses, a 5.3L V8 with 355 horses, and a 6.2L V8 with 420 hp. They're also mated to a 6-speed automatic. But, even though, the Sierra 1500 biggest engine has more horses, the standard V6 engine in the 2015 Ford F-150 offers 40 more horses of power than the standard V5 in the Sierra 1500.
Staying with the standard V6 engines of both trucks, the 2015 Ford F-150 has better fuel efficiency than the Sierra 1500. The F-150 garners an estimated 18 city/25 highway mpg with the standard engine while the Sierra 1500 comes in a mile short with 18/24 mpg. And since you have more powertrain choices in the 2015 F-150, the V6 EcoBoost does even better than any Sierra engine with 19/26 mpg.
