silverado versus ford

There is perhaps no automotive rivalry as famous as that between Chevy’s Silverado trucks and Ford’s F-Series trucks. How do the two lineups stack up against each other?

The Chevrolet Silverado is America’s most reliable pickup truck, based on vehicle registration data from the last 30 years. That means new Chevy Silverados are likely to outlast new Ford F-Series models substantially. And since Chevy still uses high-strength steel in its pickup bed instead of less durable aluminum (which the F-Series trucks use), the Silverado will stand the test of time.

The whole Silverado lineup features the Chevy Infotainment System, which continues to get higher user ratings than Ford’s SYNC infotainment system. Features include Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility for easy smartphone integration and available wireless device charging.

For 2019, Chevy introduced the brand new Durabed, the largest pickup bed on the market.

  • The Silverado 1500’s short box cargo space totals 63 cubic feet, compared to 53 cubic feet in F-Series models.
  • The Silverado 1500’s standard box cargo space totals 72 cubic feet, compared to 62 cubic feet in F-Series models. The standard box for the F-Series even has less cargo space than the Silverado’s short box.
  • The Silverado 1500’s long box totals 89 cubic feet, compared to 77 cubic feet in F-Series models.
  • The Silverado 1500 also boasts the segment’s first and only Power Up/Down tailgate.

Last year, the Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty was named the Most Awarded Commercial Pickup Truck in America by Vincentric, beating out the Ford Super Duty lineup. It was also named a 2018 Best Resale Value: Full-Size Pickup by Kelley Blue Book. Those awards prove the superiority of the heavy-duty Silverado models to the Ford Super Duty trucks.

Chevy’s heavy-duty pickup trucks boast a number of segment-exclusive features, like its CornerStep rear bumper for easy cargo box access.
