F-150 vs Silverado 1500: Towing Capabilities

 A pickup truck needs to be capable before anything else. You'll find that both the 2019 Ford F-150 and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are plenty capable. However, only the 2018 F-150 gets best-in-class towing at an incredible 13,200-pound towing capacity when properly equipped. It's expected that the 2019 generation of the F-150 will be able to tow even more with its 510 lb-ft of maximum torque.

The Silverado 1500, on the other hand, trails behind with a maximum towing capacity of 12,500 pounds and that's with its most powerful engine available. With the F-150, you don't have to opt for the highest trim level to maximize your towing.

F-150 vs Silverado 1500: Performance Specs

Speaking of engines, both the 2019 Ford F-150 and the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 have plenty of power coming from under the hood. We already know that the F-150 exceeds in torque, but what about horsepower? The base model for both trucks is powered by a V6 engine, but the F-150's offers 290 horsepower while the Silverado trails behind with 285 horsepower.

If you keep upgrading the engines, you'll see that the Silverado 1500 only falls further behind. The F-150's V8 engine produces 375 horsepower while the Silverado 1500's only musters 355 horsepower. Even bigger V8s can give the Silverado 1500 the ability to make 420 horsepower, which is incredible for a truck this size.

However, the F-150 surpasses the Silverado 1500 yet again with its High-Output 3.5L V6 EcoBoost® engine. This engine makes an unbelievable 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

F-150 vs Silverado 1500: Technology Features

 Both the 2019 Ford F-150 and the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 offer some impressive technology features. Both models offer smart infotainment systems that provide convenient wireless Bluetooth® connectability, smartphone app integration, turn-by-turn navigation, and even an available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot.

The F-150 doesn't stop there, though. This model offers a Class-Exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ features that makes backing up with a trailer easier than ever. All you have to do is turn a knob on your dashboard and you can manually control the direction of the trailer. Unfortunately, the Silverado 1500 has no feature similar to this.

2019 Ford F-150 vs 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500: The Verdict

The competition between the 2019 Ford F-150 and the 2019 Chevy Silverado was close, but the Silverado 1500 can't beat numerous best-in-class features and chart-topping capabilities. See for yourself what the F-150 can do at Fred Beans Ford of Newtown.
