Drivers all over the country have come to know and love the Ford F-Series lineup for its capability, dependability, and versatility. Countless years of Ford research and development have created an iconic line of trucks that has evolved over the years from a simple, beloved work truck to a full lineup of pickups with a variety of capabilities and features ranging from basic to all-out luxury. Ford trucks are so popular that for over 40 years, they've been the best-selling brand in America. After over 12 million miles of testing in real and simulated conditions, Ford has perfected the F-Series which consistently outperforms the competition, including the formidable Chevy Silverado lineup. While these trucks certainly have many benefits, they simply can't compete with the iconic Ford F-150, F-250, or F-350. With a range of models to suit the types of jobs you need to tackle and 40 years of Ford innovation under the hood, you simply can't out-perform a Ford F-Series truck.

Ford vs. Chevy

Comparing these two brands of trucks side by side easily demonstrates the many advantages of a Ford truck over a Chevy; regardless of which model you choose, the Ford F-Series trucks will outperform the Chevy Silverado lineup without breaking a sweat. To being with, the base Ford engine in all models is more powerful than the Chevy models, plus, you also have more choices for engine upgrades on a Ford. More horsepower, twin turbos, and four axle ratio selections mean you'll have many more ways to increase or enhance your power. The newly redesigned SYNC3 infotainment system is widely regarded as one of the most user-friendly systems on the road, and it easily out-performs the Chevy system with more advanced technology and functionality to make accessing your smartphones functionality seamless. Ford F-Series trucks also deliver higher overall maximum payload and towing capabilities, so you know your Ford truck can handle whatever job you throw at it.


Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado 1500

The Ford F-150 is not only the top-ranked full-size pickup truck on U.S. News & World Reports, but has also been named 2017 Best Full-Size Truck for the Money by the publication. For over 40 years the award-winning F-150 has been the best-selling truck in America, and it's easy to see why. The Chevy Silverado 1500 is a good truck, but it can't match the power of the new 3.5-liter V6 engine with a 10-speed transmission or the choice of five engines versus Chevy's three. Experts agree that the F-150 engines' combination of twin-turbocharged performance with fuel efficiency is what sets it apart from the Silverado's engine options. Safety is also of utmost importance on every Ford model, and the F-150 boasts better safety features than the Chevy Silverado 1500; while the Silverado earns mostly good marks from the IIHS, they do receive a Marginal score in the Small Overlap Front test. The Ford F-150 earned a Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS as well as a perfect five-star overall rating from the NHSTA. When it comes to safety, performance, and capability, you can't beat the Ford F-150.


Ford F-250 vs. Chevy Silverado 2500

The Ford F-250 is the right truck to choose when your work or play requires more muscle, with a maximum towing and hauling capacity provided by the available  6.7-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V8 which offers best-in-class torque and an impressive maximum towing capacity of 18,000 pounds.   When you choose the Ford F-250, you'll enjoy far more power and performance than you will with the Silverado 2500. In fact, the Ford F-250 is the perfect truck for any task and will deliver much more performance and power than the Silverado 2500. There's not much you won't be able to tow with that kind of power. The F-250 is also more efficient than the Silverado 2500 without losing power thanks to the super-strong frame made from military-grade aluminum alloy.


Ford F-350 vs. Chevy Silverado 3500

For the biggest tasks you can imagine, the Ford F-350 is up for the challenge. Newly outfitted with an all-new aluminum body and bed like the Ford F-150, the lighter truck still maintains power and performance. The Ford F-350 delivers best-in-class towing and payload capacity that easily trumps that of the Chevy Silverado 3500; it also offers new variable-ratio steering system that makes navigating crowded areas or tight spots easier, and you won't find it on the Chevy Silverado 3500. Plus, with so many trims and available features, you can make your rugged work truck as luxurious as you like on the inside.
