The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2019 Ford F-150 have a lot in common – both are best-sellers and leaders in the truck category. Take a quick look at the facts and figures, though, and it easy to see that the Silverado 1500 is the better truck. Both trucks offer seating for three, five or six, and start below $29,000. While a regular cab F-150 undercuts the Silverado’s starting price by $145, the Silverado bests it by offering a much larger bed. Speaking of bed length, every Silverado offers at least an additional inch on its Ford counterpart. Chevy also offers the first ever power-operated tailgate. Buyers can open and close the tailgate just like the hatch on an SUV or the trunk of a luxury car.
Both trucks offer some of the most technologically advanced engines. The F-150 uses Ford’s EcoBoost engine to get V8 power from a V6 mill. It’s bested by the Silverado’s EcoTec V8 with dynamic fuel management technology. This smart engine constantly monitors accelerator input (up to 80 times per second) to decide which of the 17 different cylinder patterns will optimize power delivery and efficiency. Drivers still have V8 power when they need it, but could use as few as two cylinders when not putting the truck to work. Plus, isn’t eight always better than six?
Inside, The Silverado’s 15-inch HUD (heads-up display) offers direction and vehicle information without pulling the driver’s attention from the road. Chevy also offers a class-exclusive rear-view mirror camera that uses a camera mounted on the back of the cab instead of the traditional glass. The result is a clear view free of headrests or backseat occupants.
If you’re looking for a full-sized truck with class-leading size, powerful yet efficient engine options, and truly groundbreaking technology, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a great choice. You can check out some specs and photos below and see for yourself why the Silverado 1500 is the better choice of the two trucks.
