Which Truck Is Better, the New Ford F-150 or the New Chevy Silverado 1500?

Ford and Chevrolet have had a long-running battle to be America's favorite truck, but if measured by sales, Ford F-Series trucks have dominated the market recently. The new F-150 continues to be the leading full-size pickup truck for the things that matter most to Coatesville, PA drivers. While both the F-150 and the new Chevy Silverado 1500 can tow and haul heavy loads, the F-150 can do just a little more of both than the 1500. This Ford truck has more engine options than the Chevy, and it gets better gas mileage.

How Is the Ford F-150 Different from the Chevy Silverado 1500?

Both the new Chevy Silverado 1500 and the new Ford F-150 are tough, powerful pickup trucks with spacious, comfortable cabs. After a closer look, people in West Chester will find that the F-150 offers a stylish interior with quality materials that are just a touch above what you get with the Silverado 1500.

Some other differences include:

  • Drivers in Downingtown want a truck with a muscular engine so they can pull a friend's vehicle out of the mud or carry heavy items in the back. Both the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500 have potent engines, but the F-150 offers six options, while the 1500 only has four. The F-150's strongest engine puts out 450 horsepower, while the 1500's best motor produces only 420 horsepower.
  • Most people would rather spend as little as possible on gasoline. The Chevy Silverado gets decent fuel economy for a full-size truck. Its base engine will get you 20 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway. However, the F-150 outdoes this. People in Kennett Square will appreciate that the new Ford F-150 gets 19 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway with its base engine and 20 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway with its available turbocharged V6 engine.
  • While both the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500 are highly capable trucks, the F-150 sets the bar for all other full-size pickups. Drivers in Chester County who want a truck that can pull the heaviest trailers and haul the biggest payloads will prefer the F-150. When properly equipped, the F-150 can tow 13,200 pounds and haul just shy of 3,300 pounds. The Silverado 1500 tops out at 12,500 pounds for towing and 2,590 pounds for payload.
