The 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon vs. 2020 GMC Sierra HD AT4 is not your average off-road comparison. We know the Power Wagon and new Ford Super Duty Tremor both have more off-road moxie than the GMC AT4. Solid front axles truly help, so do locking or limited-slip front axles and so-on.
Keep in mind: there is more to this comparison than off-road ability. As all-around work vehicles go, the competition is closer than you think. In fact, all three trucks surprised us with their driving dynamics and strengths.
Here’s TFLtruck’s overall off-road scores for all three trucks:

What these numbers don’t tell you is the driving characteristics of the GMC and Ram. As much as we admire the Ram Power Wagon’s off-road capability, we fully acknowledge the GMC Sierra HD AT4’s ease of driving as an everyday driver.
