Compare the Ford F-150 & Chevrolet Silverado 1500 

Which Truck Has What it Takes? 

When two giants go head to head for the spot as Best Truck, it sometimes comes down to preference and opinion, but here in Leesville, we know the facts. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a force to be reckoned with, but the Ford F-150 is up for the task. When you visit us from DeRidder to take a test drive in the new F-150, you'll get to see firsthand how it compares to the Chevy truck. 

The F-150 is consistently winning awards that name it the Best-Selling Truck, and it even has been named Motor Trend's Truck of the Year for 2018, and it's no wonder. This is a truck that has endured decades of punishment and still manages to come out ahead. If you're familiar with this brand, you know they last a long time and can go the distance. How does the Ford F-150 compare to the Chevrolet Silverado 1500? Read on to find out.



  • The base engines in these models are comparable, but the Chevy truck has less torque than the F-150 engine does.
  • For maximum towing, you'll be better off with the Ford F-150 because it has up to 13,200 pounds of maximum towing capacity, while the Chevy Silverado has just 12,200 pounds of maximum towing.
  • With the Ford F-150, you can have a 10-speed transmission, while the Chevy Silverado gives you an eight-speed transmission.
  • Max payload in the F-150 is 2,890 pounds, and 2,180 pounds in the Chevy Silverado. 

Technology & Comfort 

  • The base trim F-150 offers Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and a Rear View Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist, but the Silverado doesn't have these features available.
  • If you want to enjoy seamless integration for your smartphone, the Ford F-150 will charge less to equip Apple CarPlay and Android Auto than the Chevy Silverado will.
  • With the Chevy Silverado, you won't get the option to equip Adaptive Cruise Control, but in the Ford F-150, you can enjoy that option on select trims. 

The Ford F-150 has been the number one choice for truck buyers for years in Pineville, LA, and it's clear why. Choose the best-in-class, well-rounded, and fun to drive F-150 for your next truck and you won't be disappointed. Chevy's MyLink infotainment system can be frustrating and difficult to use, especially when compared with the well-thought-out Ford SYNC 3® system. You'll also love the available twin-panel moonroof, satellite radio, Wi-Fi Hotspot, MyKey, and more for your life in Marksville!
