2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. 2020 Ford F-150 | Grand Prairie, TX
When buying a new truck, you want something strong and versatile. You may be considering either the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or the 2020 Ford F-150. While both trucks have a lot of capabilities, we think the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will keep you happier. Here is a quick comparison to show why the Silverado is better than the F-150.
If engine power is a high priority for you, the Silverado 1500 offers best-in-class V8 power. Its available 6.2-liter V8 engine delivers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. If you choose the available V8 engine on the F-150, it is only rated at 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Another important factor in choosing a truck is its towing abilities. When properly equipped, the Silverado 1500 has a best-in-class tow rating of up to 13,400 pounds. With the F-150, its maximum tow rating is only 13,200 pounds.
If you prefer to drive a more fuel-conscious truck, the Silverado 1500 has the best fuel economy of any truck on the road with the available 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine. This engine delivers an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.* The best fuel economy you can get from the F-150 is an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.
You will undoubtedly use your truck’s bed more than any of its other features. This is why you need a truck with built-in versatility and functionality. The Silverado 1500 comes standard with the Durabed, which is called the “most functional bed of any pickup.” This bed comes with class-leading cargo volume and 12 standard cargo tie-downs. With the F-150, you will have less room for cargo and not as much versatility.
The Silverado 1500 will keep you riding in comfort through Grand Prairie, Texas, and beyond. It offers best-in-class front headroom and legroom. In the F-150, you might feel more cramped.
