Silverado vs. F-150: Which Full-Size Pickup Truck Is Right for You?

The Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150 are both fantastic full-size pickup trucks. They actually have a lot in common, including pricing, comfort level, interior quality, powertrains, and ride and handling. So, in which categories does the Ford exceed the Chevy, and vice versa?

Chevrolet completely redesigned the Silverado 1500 for the 2019 model year. It’s lighter than the previous generation and has a larger bed and cabin. In addition, its maximum payload has increased and it gets a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine, as well as newly standard features.

Ford’s F-Series truck lineup is the best-selling set of vehicles in any class in the United States. The F-150 outsells all other pickup trucks by a wide margin. This comes as no surprise since it has been a top-rated truck for many years. While Ford hasn’t fully redesigned the F-150 since the 2015 model year, it underwent a refresh for 2018 that brought slightly more powerful and fuel-efficient engines, along with a sizable increase in towing capacity.
