Do you need help determining the best pickup truck for your Redwood Falls construction site or adventures around Morton? Many drivers gravitate to Ford and Chevy, as they're well known for producing strong, reliable trucks. As such, comparing the 2019 Ford F-150 vs. 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 is a great place to start. Discover why the new F-150 proves favorable in this F-150 vs. Silverado comparison from Weelborg Ford.

F-150 vs. Silverado: Performance & MPG

Expect more power and better fuel economy returns from the introductory 2019 Ford F-150 as compared with the new Chevy Silverado.

  • Ford F-150: A 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine churns out 290 hp via a 6- or 10-speed automatic smooth-shifting transmission. This setup helps the F-150 achieve an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.
  • Chevy Silverado: A larger 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine musters just 285 hp via a 6-speed automatic transmission. EPA estimates max out at 15 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.

F-150 vs. Silverado: Amenities & Safety

Although Morgan area drivers will pay less for the F-150 ($28,155 MSRP) than the Silverado ($28,300 MSRP), they will still get more - and better - standard features. Take the Rearview Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist, for example. The Silverado does have a rearview camera installed, but it doesn't offer such assistance for towing. A few additional F-150 highlights include:

  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • Curve Control
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System

F-150 vs. Silverado: From the Experts

Since Weelborg Ford represents the Ford brand, we of course believe the F-150 is superior. That's why it's important to consider what the experts have to say, too. For instance, Edmunds gave the F-150 a rating of 8.1/10, and U.S. News rated the F-150 at 8.8/10. Meanwhile, the Silverado earned only 7.2/10 and 8.7/10, respectively.
