Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado

The Ford F-150 Takes on the Chevy Silverado

The Ford F-150 has been the most popular and bestselling pickup truck in America since it first debuted four decades ago. When you compare it to the other available pickup trucks on the market, it's easy to see why.

Here at Windward Ford of Hawaii, we can think of dozens of reasons why drivers should consider an F-150 pickup truck for their daily activities. But, we also know that the Ford F-150 isn't your only truck-buying option.

That's why we've put together this convenient, side-by-side comparison of the Ford-built F-150 and its competition, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. We hope having all of this information available at your fingertips helps you see all the ways in which the Ford F-150 dominates the competition.

The Ford F-150 vs. The Chevy Silverado 1500

  • Engine options. Both the Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 give drivers a range of choices for engines, from a V6 to a V8. However, the Chevy Silverado only has three possible engines, while the Ford-F-150 has six, including a new turbocharged diesel-powered V6. The Chevy Silverado doesn't have a diesel-powered option anywhere in its lineup.
  • Transmission. The Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado standard engines are both paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. However, as drivers move up, they get a standard ten-speed automatic transmission on all other Ford F-150 engines. This gives drivers an incredibly smooth ride and better fuel economy. Comparatively, drivers who move up to the bigger engines in the Chevy Silverado get an eight-speed automatic, with no ten-speed option.
  • Body construction. The Ford F-150 is lighter and stronger than the Chevy Silverado, thanks to its all-aluminum body construction. In fact, the Ford F-150 weighs in at thousands of pounds lighter than the Silverado because of its aluminum construction.
