For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Ford F-150 are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The GMC Sierra Limited doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

The F-150 has standard Post Collision Braking, which automatically apply the brakes in the event of a crash to help prevent secondary collisions and prevent further injuries. The Sierra Limited doesn’t offer a post collision braking system: in the event of a collision that triggers the airbags, more collisions are possible without the protection of airbags that may have already deployed.

Over 200 people are killed each year when backed over by motor vehicles. The F-150 offers optional Reverse Brake Assist that uses rear sensors to monitor and automatically apply the brakes to prevent a rear collision. The Sierra Limited doesn’t offer backup collision prevention brakes.

The F-150’s optional driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Sierra Limited doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the F-150 and the Sierra Limited have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available four-wheel drive, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration does 35 MPH front crash tests on new vehicles. In this test, results indicate that the Ford F-150 is safer than the GMC Sierra Limited:

For its top level performance in IIHS driver and passenger-side small overlap frontal, moderate overlap frontal, side impact, roof strength and head restraint tests, its standard vehicle-to-vehicle front crash prevention system, its standard vehicle-to-pedestrian front crash prevention system, and its available headlight’s “Good” rating, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the F-150 the rating of “Top Safety Pick” for 2021, a rating granted to only 145 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The Sierra Limited last would have qualified as a “Top Safety Pick” in 2017.

Regenerative brakes improve the F-150 PowerBoost’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Sierra Limited doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

Regardless of its engine, the F-150’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. If the conditions warrant or the driver wishes, the system can be manually disabled at any time for the duration of a trip (not available PowerBoost). GMC only offers an automatic engine start/stop system on the Sierra Limited 8-speed Auto/Diesel.

The F-150 SuperCrew’s standard fuel tank has 2 gallons more fuel capacity than the Sierra Limited Double/Crew Cab’s standard fuel tank (26 vs. 24 gallons). The F-150’s optional fuel tank has 8 gallons more fuel capacity than the Sierra Limited Regular Cab’s standard fuel tank (36 vs. 28 gallons).

For greater off-road capability the F-150 8-foot SuperCab has a greater minimum ground clearance than the Sierra 1500 Limited Standard Bed Crew Cab (8.7 vs. 8 inches), allowing the F-150 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

It allows adults and children to easily open and close the tailgate with one hand to better facilitate loading and unloading. Tailgate assist costs extra on the GMC Sierra Limited.

Both the F-150 and Sierra Limited have bed indentations that accommodate 2x4’s for two-tiered loading, but the F-150 also has indentations to separate the cargo box into three different sections length-wise.

To make loading and unloading groceries and cargo easier, especially for short adults, the F-150 (except XL/XLT) offers an optional power cargo door, which opens and closes automatically by pressing a button. The Sierra Limited doesn’t offer a power cargo door.

In case you lock your keys in your vehicle, or don’t have them with you, you can let yourself in using the F-150’s available exterior PIN entry system. The Sierra Limited doesn’t offer an exterior PIN entry system, and its extra cost OnStar® can’t unlock the doors if the vehicle doesn’t have cell phone reception or the driver can’t contact the service.

The F-150’s standard speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Sierra Limited’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted. The F-150’s optional wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducts detailed tests on headlights for their range both straight ahead and in curves and to be certain they don’t exceed acceptable amounts of glare to oncoming drivers. The F-150’s available headlights were rated “Good” by the IIHS, while the Sierra Limited’s headlights are rated “Poor.”

To help drivers avoid possible obstacles, the F-150 offers optional cornering lights to illuminate around corners when the turn signals are activated. The Sierra Limited doesn’t offer cornering lights. The F-150 (except XL/XLT) also offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle.

The F-150 (except XL/XLT/Lariat) offers optional massaging front seats in order to maximize comfort and eliminate fatigue on long trips. Massaging seats aren’t available in the Sierra Limited.

The F-150 (except XL/XLT)’s optional Park Assist can parallel park by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Sierra Limited doesn’t offer an automated parking system.

The F-150 was chosen as one of Car and Driver’s “Top Five/10Best Trucks” for 2 of the last 6 years. The Sierra Limited has never been a Car and Driver “Top Five/10Best Truck” pick.

Motor Trend selected the F-150 as their 2018 Truck of the Year. The Sierra Limited has never been chosen.

The Ford F-Series outsold the GMC Sierra Limited by almost three to one during the 2021 model year.
