It Hauls and Tows Better Than the Rest

Let's be honest. You don't buy a full-size pickup truck so you can go to the market and haul groceries. You buy one for the rough, tough and hardy jobs you take on. The 2018 Ford F-150 leads its class in three important areas: towing, hauling and torque. When compared to the Silverado, The F-150 is champ.

The F-150 can tow a maximum of 13,200 lbs. while the Silverado has a maximum of 9,400 lbs. The Ford's payload is 3,270 lbs. The Silverado hauls a paltry 2,150 lbs. and, as far as torque is concerned it's 510 lb-ft versus 460 lb-ft. Guess who delivers the 510?

Let's talk engines now. The F-150 gives Florida drivers the option of 5 different engine blocks to Chevy's 4. The F-150's base engine is a 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 that delivers an EPA-estimated 19/25 MPG city-highway and an output of 290-HP and 265-lb ft of torque. The Silverado's base engine numbers are an EPA-estimated 18/24 MPG, 285 HP and 305 lb ft torque. They may look somewhat similar until you take into consideration that the Chevy starts at $28,300, while the F-150 starts at $27,705.

Lastly, the F-150 comes in 7 trims, as opposed to the Silverado's 6.
