The Champaign region’s hardest-working drivers want a vehicle that can do it all. For many, that search may begin and end with a comparison of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. Ford F-150! In 2018, we showed you how the reliability and cost-to-own of the Silverado made it the smarter buy. Comparing the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. 2019 Ford F-150, it’s not hard to see that the differences are even greater in the new year!

Performance: Chevy Silverado vs. Ford F-150

The new 2019 Silverado 1500 LT comes standard with a 2.7-liter turbocharged Inline 4-cylinder engine. While you might expect the standard 4-cylinder to offer less power than the standard 3.3-liter V6 in the F-150 XL, the opposite is actually true! Let’s see how the engines in each model’s baseline trim measure up:

  • 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 Base Engine
    • 2.7-Liter Turbocharged I-4
    • 310 hp / 348 lb-ft of torque
    • Six-speed automatic transmission
  • 2019 Ford F-150 Base Engine
    • 3.3L Ti-VCT V6
    • 290 hp / 265 lb-ft of torque
    • Electronic six-speed automatic transmission

With almost 85 more lb-ft of torque in the baseline trim, it’s no wonder that the Silverado is preferred by drivers who appreciate a great value! Did we mention that the new Silverado 1500 LT can tow around 11,600 pounds? To enjoy similar capacities with the F-150, you’ll need to pursue numerous upgrades and options.

Silverado vs. F-150: Advanced Features

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has been completely redesigned for 2019, while the new Ford F-150 remains within the same generation, introduced all the way back in 2015. As a result, the new Silverado comes packed with newer, more advanced technology features, and it also sports a more refined look!

Inside the Silverado, you’ll find that Bluetooth® connectivity comes standard. Drivers will need to upgrade in order to enjoy the same convenient feature in the Ford F-150. Although both trucks are available in numerous different trim levels, with tons of features available, several options are only available in the upper-level Chevy trims! These include a head-up display and wireless personal device charging.

Utility and Capability: Chevy Silverado vs. Ford F-150

Both the Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado are available with several different cabins/bed-size combinations. However, the cargo box in the Silverado 1500 is almost always larger–by a significant margin.

  • Drivers who opt for a Ford F-150 shortbed will receive a cargo box with 62.3 cubic feet of storage space. The longbed option 77.4 cubic feet. Both pale in comparison before the cargo box in the otherwise-comparable Silverado Regular Cab. Choose this option to enjoy 89.1 cubic feet of secure bed storage for your jobs near Danville and Urbana.

  • On top of all this, the larger dimensions and lighter components of the recently-redesigned Silverado make it better at handling heavy payloads. Comparing the Silverado 1500 Extended Cab to a similar F-150 build, we see that the Chevy can handle a 2,040-pound payload, while the F-150 can only handle about 1,840 pounds.
