Ford F-150 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Comparison 

Learn How Our F-150 Matches up to its Richfield Springs Rival 

While there are ample options available for full-size truck shoppers, we all know the battle for supremacy falls -- as usual -- to a choice between the Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado 1500. These two automakers have been going head-to-head for decades in all automotive segments, so it's no wonder that they both produce the durable trucks that American favors. Of course, there's a reason that the F-150 has been the best-selling pickup for more than 40 years -- several, if you stop and really think about it. 

With 2019 models out, we decided to take another look at these two competing trucks and see if the Ford F-150 continues to hold the decided edge over its bow tie-sporting opponent. Read on to see how things turned out. 


  • The Ford F-150 offers potential owners a lineup of six engine options, while the Silverado 1500 limits you to three choices. 
  • The F-150 comes with a standard 3.3-liter V6 engine that makes 290 horsepower, while the Silverado's standard 4.3-liter V6 engine tops out at 285 horsepower. Even at the start, Ford gives you more power at your command. 
  • When you compare each truck's most powerful engine, the difference is even more noteworthy. The F-150 can be equipped with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 that manufactures 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, clearly outperforming the Silverado's 6.2-liter EcoTec v8 engine and its output of 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. 
  • The F-150 offers the far greater hauling capability, with a max tow rating of 13,200 pounds and a payload capacity of 3,270 pounds. The Silverado is only rated to tow a maximum of 12,200 pounds, and has a payload maximum of 2,190 pounds. 

Features & Safety 

  • We compared entry-level models, and the F-150 comes loaded with far more standard features than the base Silverado. These include some that seem to be mandatory to us these days, such as speed-sensitive intermittent wipers, auto-off headlights, a full-sized spare tire, tire pressure monitoring system, and brake assist. 
  • While both trucks earned 5-Star Overall crash safety ratings from the NHTSA, the Ford F-150 was named an Insurance Institute for highway Safety Top Safety Pick -- while the Silverado earned no recognition from the IIHS.
