2018 Ford F-150 vs 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The battle for half-ton trucking supremacy so routinely falls to Ford F-150 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 that it’s a little disconcerting to note the Ford’s unquestionable superiority. It’s the only model to offer:

  • Up to 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of Torque
  • Best-in-Class Payload
  • Best-in-Class Towing
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Class-Exclusive Remote Tailgate Release

How is it that Ford holds all the high cards? Read on to find out.

Trucks demand horsepower and torque like athletes require muscle and sinew, and nothing approaches the raw potential of Ford’s 3.5L V6, which makes up to 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. You might expect the Ford F-150’s power to result in low efficiency scores — in fact, it manages stronger mpg ratings than the Chevy Silverado 1500 can offer.

Truck Comparison: Towing and Payload

Whether you need to tow from The Woodlands to Conroe or carry heavy supplies across Spring, the Ford F-150 delivers in ways the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 cannot:

  • Maximum Tow Rating: Up to a best-in-class 13,200 pounds with the Ford truck vs. 12,500 pounds with the Chevy truck.
  • Maximum Payload Rating: Up to a best-in-class 3,270 pounds with the Ford truck vs. 2,250 pounds with the Chevy truck.

How does the Ford sprint so far ahead? Through a combination of leading power and revolutionary aluminum-alloy body structure.

Ford or Chevy: Technology

The Ford F-150 is about brains as well as brawn, that’s why it offers:

  • Class-Exclusive Remote Tailgate Release: For convenient load and unloading.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: For easier commutes through stop-start traffic.
  • 360-Degree Camera with Split View Display: For a simpler time parking or maneuvering.

You can look for those same technologies with the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, but you’ll be looking in vain.
