The pickup truck segment is one of the most competitive in the automotive industry. That is why it is so important to stand out. We are going to compare the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 to the 2020 Ford F-150 so you can see why the Silverado is the superior choice.
V8 power and diesel efficiency
The Silverado 1500 is built for power and efficiency, and it holds superior in an engine-to-engine comparison with the Ford F-150.
The 2020 F-150’s top V8 engine, the 5.0-liter TI-VCT V8, provides 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 Silverado 1500’s 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8 engine easily surpasses it with a best-in-class V8 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
While Ford’s 3.0-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel engine achieves a respectable 29 mpg on highways, it again falls short of the Silverado’s capabilities — the Silverado 1500 model’s 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine reaches 33 mpg on highways, making it America’s most fuel-efficient pickup truck.*
Trailering power and tech
In terms of both might and technology, the Silverado surpasses its competitors in trailering. While the F-150’s EcoBoost® engines hold respectable maximum trailering weight ratings, only the 2020 Silverado 1500’s V8 engine delivers best-in-class maximum towing capacity at 13,400 pounds.
Trailering with the Silverado gives you exceptional visibility: the Silverado 1500 has up to 15 available trailering camera views, including the “transparent trailer” mode that allows you to see through a transparent model of your conventional trailer or camper and keep an eye on what’s behind you.
A better bed
If you’re looking for cargo space, Chevrolet’s Silverado 1500 is once again your best option. With best-in-class bed width on its standard and long beds and best-in-class bed length on its standard and short beds, you’ll be able to haul more than with the competition. You can rely on the available industry-first power-up/power-down tailgate to make your trip convenient.
