Conyers drivers on the hunt for an iconic and affordable full-size pickup truck are likely comparing the Chevy Silverado and the Ford F-150. These two are undisputedly the most popular trucks ever released and each year, they’re designed to compete with each other directly.

While the Ford and the Chevy provide comparable engine options, the Chevy takes the lead when it comes to max towing capacity. When equipped with the EcoTec3 engine, the Silverado can tow 13,300 pounds*. When the Ford is equipped with an EcoBoost® V6, it’s max towing capacity falls short at 13,100 pounds. Considering that the Ford F-150 trims tend to be more expensive, this difference is eyebrow-raising. The Chevy also provides a number of helpful towing packages, including:
In general, the Silverado 1500 is kinder to taller passengers with more head and legroom than the Ford. Here’s a quick snapshot of Chevy vs. Ford measurements.
As you may have noticed, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Ford F-150 offer nearly-identical performance from their engine options and have similarly-sized cabins. That said, the Chevrolet Silverado is just slightly more affordable than the Ford, offers up a slightly larger cabin, and takes the lead when it comes to towing. While they compete neck-and-neck, a pattern emerges upon closer examination—the Chevy costs less while offering more.
