Although the Silverado is the bigger seller, it's the Chevrolet that has the more avant garde looks, especially at the front with the headlights and grille split into three parts. With C-shaped headlamps and large chrome grille, the Sierra is conservative in comparison.

Despite being roughly the same shape, the Silverado's wheel arches have rounder edges and miss out plastic protectors. The Chevy also has a flowing character line above the front wheel arch which sweeps down and into the front door. The Sierra instead has a squarer fender treatment with a fake vent.

Thanks to the shadows and lighting in these photos, we can see the subtle differences in the side treatment with both trucks. The GMC Sierra has a subtle shoulder line, while the Chevrolet Silverado has a sharp crease, which can make quite a heavy shadow.

One of the unique features of the Sierra is its Multi-Pro Tailgate, which has an inner section that opens separately to the outer part. This inner section can function as a load stopper, step, or work area.
