Compare the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500

The truck class is incredibly competitive among the major truck brands, yet Ford still manages to stand out. Our Tawas City Ford dealership sees many customers looking to buy a new truck, and the 2020 Ford F-150 is one we see a lot of questions about. Those questions cover its capabilities as well as how the Ford F-150 compares to other full-size trucks. Well, below, we provide a Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500 comparison for truck shoppers around Whittemore, MI!


You'll find a variety of options regarding the bed lengths and cab sizes of both these new trucks for sale near Oscoda, and both the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500 seat up to six in their largest cab. The Ford F-150 goes further with its comfort, however, as it has more head and legroom for second-row passengers, and it offers massaging front seats that the Chevy Silverado 1500 does not.


Capability is an area many truck shoppers look first, and the Ford F-150 has lots to offer. Its most powerful engine has more horsepower and torque than any Chevy Silverado 1500 engine while the Ford F-150's diesel engine is more powerful than the diesel in this new Chevy truck. These engines and the body design give the Ford F-150 a higher max payload than the new Silverado 1500, and if you want a diesel truck near East Tawas, the Ford F-150 tows more than the Chevy option.


Trucks are more than just the brawn you expect, and the new Ford F-150 highlights that with all sorts of helpful technologies. To make towing easier, the Ford F-150 has a blind-spot detection system that adjusts for the added area of a trailer as well as a Pro Trailer Backup Assist feature that eases backing up with a trailer hitched. The Chevy Silverado 1500 doesn't offer such help to make your job easier.

So, the new Ford F-150 impresses when you compare it with other new trucks near Hale, MI, and we have many offers for the Ford F-150 in our new inventory. Check them out and reach out if you have any questions!
