Manitoba is a province that’s populated with blue-collar workers who need pickup trucks able to satisfy every need they might have behind the wheel. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that top-tier options like the GMC Sierra 1500 and Toyota Tundra are so prevalent around here – both offer high-end All-Wheel Drive systems, stellar power, and innovative qualities that are able to keep you connected to your job at all times. But which of these two industry leaders is best suited to be your companion through your busy life?
To help you answer that question, Craig Dunn Motor City has put some research together on the Sierra 1500 and Tundra models to give you a closer look at what makes these two models so favoured. Check them out below, and you might just end up with a pickup that you’ll want to take home.

Not only is it much stronger and more economical than its Toyota counterpart, but the 2019 Sierra 1500 also offers more in the way of versatility. Look no further than its MultiPro™ tailgate as proof of this – this industry-first innovation promises six distinct functions that all allow faster, simpler loading, unloading and cargo access than the Tundra can tout. Not only that, but with a premium infotainment inside (complete with one of the most advanced operating systems on the Canadian market) the Sierra 1500 allows you to communicate and navigate throughout your life simpler and quicker than ever. Plus, with an intelligent ProGrade™ Trailering System, you can keep tabs on your daily haul in ways not possible on any of the Sierra’s competition.
