Keep reading to discover our guide to these two vehicles, and decide for yourself which one is right for you! Contact us if you have any questions!

Silverado 1500 vs. F-150: Power

When shopping for full-size trucks, most folks around Gonzales will surely look into the power under the hood. A properly engineered powertrain and good performance specs go a long way in a truck’s rating, so how do the F-150 and Silverado 1500 stack up against each other in terms of power? Well, to answer that question, we’ll need to first look at the available engine options for each:

Chevy Silverado 1500 Engines

  • Standard 285-hp 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 with Active Fuel Management™ (gas)
  • 277-hp 3.0L Duramax 3.0L I-6 (diesel)
  • 310-hp 2.7L I-4 (gas)
  • 355-hp 5.3L V-8 (gas) with Active Fuel Management™
  • 355-hp 5.3L V-8 (gas) with Dynamic Fuel Management™
  • 420-hp 6.2L EcoTec3 V-8 with Dynamic Fuel Management™ (gas)

Ford F-150 Engines

  • Standard 290-hp 3.3L TI-VCT V6
  • 400-hp 3.5L EcoBoost® V-6 (gas)
  • 250-hp 3.0L Power Stroke® (diesel)
  • 430-hp PowerBoost® V6 (full hybrid)
  • 325-hp 2.7L Turbocharged EcoBoost® (gas)
  • 400-hp 5.0L V-8 (gas)

As you can see, the standard engines from both models produce relatively the same power, however, the options available for the Silverado 1500 give it an edge in horsepower, torque, and towing capacity.

Silverado 1500 vs. F-150: Towing Capacity 

Looking to tow circles around the competition? After reviewing the figures above, and the ones you’re about to see, we think you’ll know which truck is taking this prize. When equipped with the EcoTec3 engine, the Silverado 1500 can tow up to 13,300 pounds, a 200 pound edge over the F-150. Not only that, but the Silverado 1500 comes with these additional features to make towing a breeze:

  • Standard Trailering Package
  • Available Max Trailering Package
  • Available Towing Mirrors

Chevy vs. Ford: Safety

When it comes to a full-size truck, it’s important to understand the mantle of responsibility for safety. You’ll be piloting one of the larger things on the road, and as such, it’s important to have a host of safety features keeping you and your family protected. That’s why the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 offers “Teen Driver Technology” – allowing parents to limit things like speed and audio volume while their teens are driving.
