Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado

While both truck lineups offer six powertrain options to choose from, getting impressive power underneath the hood is easily found when you climb behind the wheel of the Ford F-150. The Chevy can match the capability of Ford's V6, V8, and turbo-diesel engine options, but it can't match the robust power from the High-Output Ford engine. The F-150 can equip a 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine that delivers 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. The Chevy Silverado can't match up to these number with any engine in its lineup.

When you choose the diesel engine, you know you're getting a powertrain that works hard and offers impressive capability. The full-size Ford pickup truck can tow a maximum of 11,500 pounds when equipped with the diesel package, while the Silverado only achieves up to 9,300 pounds with its diesel engine.

Both trucks are industry toppers when it comes to full-size truckloads, with either the Ford or the Chevy a stellar option when you need to get supplies to the next worksite. When it comes to loading up the truck's payload, you'll find more capacity in the Ford F-150. With this Ford truck, you can haul 3,270 pounds, while the Chevy Silverado is limited to 2,250 pounds.

Even though both trucks are hard-working, industrious vehicles, having the right technology equipped makes the workload that much easier. The Ford F-150 offers the class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, a feature that makes controlling your trailer easy with the twist of the knob. You won't find a similar feature in the Chevy lineup.

When you're working late at night, the Ford F-150 lineup offers convenient features like LED box lighting, LED trailer hitch light, and a class-exclusive LED side-mirror spotlights to provide you with some clarity. Chevy can't make things as convenient for you as it lacks many of the same features

Ford F-150 vs Toyota Tundra

If you're looking for versatility from your engine options, you'll want to test drive the F-150 lineup. It comes with six engine options, including V6, V8, and turbo-diesel powertrains suited for all kinds of lifestyles. The Tundra is limited to a V8 engine, meaning you won't be able to customize it to match your needs.

When you're looking for a large truck that can tow just about anything, you'll enjoy what the Ford F-150 has to offer. This Ford truck stays near the front of the pack with a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds, while the Tundra can only tow up to 10,200 pounds.

The payload on the Ford F-150 is equally equipped for your next adventure with a maximum capacity of 3,270 pounds. The Toyota full-size truck is capable but not to the same level, with only 1,730 pounds. You'll be limited with the Tundra when you need to haul supplies to the worksite.

With seating for up to six in both, the Ford F-150 is the more accommodating of the two trucks. It offers up to 43.9 inches of legroom for front-row passengers and 43 inches for rear-seat passengers. You won't find the same level of comfort in the Toyota Tundra.

You'll find that both the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra offer a plethora of intuitive and helpful features to make the most of your trip behind the wheel. However, the Ford F-150 is available with innovative features like the Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ and Reverse Sensing System on the base model, which you won't find with the Toyota Tundra lineup. When you need help and convenience, the Ford F-150 is the full-size truck for you.

Ford F-150 vs Dodge RAM 1500

Once again, the Ford F-150 lineup is similar to the options found in the RAM 1500 lineup. You can explore a variety of options that include efficient V6, robust V8, and capable turbo-diesel options with either the F-150 or Dodge RAM 1500. However, the Ford F-150 can equip the High-Output 3.5-liter V6 that delivers class-leading horsepower and torque output. No engine option from the Dodge RAM 1500 can match this.

Want a truck that can tow the most? The Ford F-150 can manage a maximum of 13,200 pounds, while the Dodge RAM 1500 maxes out at 12,750 pounds. You won't be as limited with the Ford truck.

Not just staying ahead of the Dodge RAM 1500 in towing capability, the Ford F-150 also offers a class-best payload capability of 3,270 pounds while the Dodge RAM truck is limited to 2,300 pounds maximum in its payload.

Inside the Ford, you'll find plenty of comfort including the amount of legroom that your passengers can enjoy and take advantage of. While the Dodge RAM 1500 truck manages to accommodate back seat passengers with ample legroom, it does so at the cost of front-row legroom. The F-150 offers 43.96 inches of legroom for those in the front row, three inches more than what the Dodge RAM can offer.

If you're looking for help with your towing, you'll find the Ford F-150 is well-equipped with a plethora of features designed to make it simple and straightforward. The F-150 comes with available features like the class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, FordPass Connect™ app with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and an arsenal of features like the Blind Spot Information System, Lane-Keeping Assist, and more safety options. Dodge RAM includes some of the safety features but you won't find most of these in the Dodge RAM 1500 lineup, and you'll need to pay more to have them equipped.
