North Charleston shoppers who are looking for their next pickup truck are likely to end up comparing Chevy vs. Ford trucks. Between two classic models like the Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado, which option has more of the features and capabilities you need to make it through the workday in Mount Pleasant? With the ability to tow 200 pounds more than its competitor, we think the Chevy Silverado 1500 will be a top contender! Ultimately, though, the decision is yours to make. Explore some key differences between the Silverado 1500 vs. F-150, below.
Chevy vs. Ford powertrains have always made for a tough competition. The Silverado 1500 and F-150 lineups both provide viable options ranging from gas power to diesel power and V6 to V8. Whether you value fuel-efficiency or power, you’re sure to find something that satisfies:
Whether you’re on the job or out on the weekend, towing power that never compromises is a must-have feature in any pickup truck. As it turns out, at a 13,300-pound maximum capacity the Chevy Silverado 1500 can tow up to 200 pounds more than the Ford F-150. That might not seem like a huge difference initially, but when you think about it in terms of 200 more pounds of lumber or other work materials, every pound counts.
Not only does the Silverado 1500 towing capacity surpass that of the Ford F-150, but you will also be supported by these standard and available towing features:
Driving a pickup truck means you’re sacrificing a bit of interior room, so you’ll want a cabin that maximizes all available space. If you need to bring family, friends, or coworkers on trips in your truck, the Silverado offers more headroom and legroom to get comfortable:
While you compare the Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado, you might notice one feature in particular that is only available in the Silverado: Chevy Teen Driver. Currently, Ford does not offer a comparable feature in any of its vehicles. What is Chevy Teen Driver, exactly? This innovative feature allows you to set audio limits, speed limits, and more, so you can have peace of mind if a new driver in your family ever drives your truck. Although it’s called “Teen Driver,” you could just as easily use it to ensure any friends or coworkers who borrow your truck are treating it with care.
