The Silverado is available at a wide range of price points — so a wide variety of Overland Park truck-buyers can access best-in-class capability. In fact, Silverado prices across the board are lower than the F-150:

  • Base Chevy Silverado 1500 Work Truck — $28,300 starting MSRP
  • Top-of-the-Line Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country — $53,300 starting MSRP
  • Base Ford F-150 XL — $28,495 starting MSRP

Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Towing Capacity

While it comes close, Ford can’t match Chevy in a contest of 1500 vs. F-150 towing power. With the Silverado, you’ll benefit from an extra 200 pounds for gear and other cargo:

1500 vs. F-150: Towing Capacity

  • 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 — 13,400 pounds maximum
  • 2020 Ford F-150 — 13,200 pounds maximum

When you’re towing a full-size trailer, 200 pounds can make all the difference when it comes to grabbing more supplies and equipment on a single trip.

Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Cargo Box

How do Chevy vs. Ford trucks compare when it comes to cargo volume? Only Chevy trucks feature the Durabed truck bed, a high-strength yet lightweight cargo box. Roll-formed steel allows the Silverado to offer more cargo volume than any other truck in its class. Plus, you can safely pack in even more gear with 12 standard tie-downs, each rated at 500 pounds.

Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. Ford F-150: Standard Features

While both models are available at a similar starting MSRP, the Silverado base trim offers a longer list of workhouse-worthy features. And it’s the same story for advanced trailering technology and connectivity features. You’ll enjoy high-tech features like the following on any base Silverado 1500, while they’re unavailable or come in at a higher price on the F-150:

  • 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot capability
  • Chevrolet Teen Driver technology
  • 40/20/40 split-bench front seat
