Tipton Ford | Ford F-150 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Brownsville, TX

Dare To Compare

The two biggest competitors in the pickup truck segment are the 2019 Ford F-150 and the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Which is the better vehicle for when you need to get work done?

Engine Range

Both the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150 have a broad variety of powertrain options to choose from. However, Ford has competitors beat with six different engine options in comparison to the Silverado's four. Both trucks will reportedly offer diesel engines in their range soon for even more performance, but the Ford F-150 already has an exclusive high-output V6 under the hood of both the Raptor and Limited trims that cranks out a staggering 450 horsepower. Specs are not yet known about the Silverado 1500's engine choices. 


The 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 is all-new for this model year, and the latest generation adds a lot of size to it. This means standard seating for six rather than three and a wider build. This is all well and good if you're looking for a lot of interior space. However, a lot of truck buyers prefer to have the option of a smaller cabin, and maneuvering a wide pickup truck can make squeezing into small spaces more difficult. The Ford F-150 also focuses more on refining the interior it has, with luxury features in the upper trim levels, for maximum comfort.


A lot of engine specs aren't yet available for the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Ford F-150, so we'll have to take the companies' word for it; the Ford F-150's diesel engine option is currently estimated to win with the best towing and payload ratings in the pickup truck segment. If you like to tow and haul, this can be a big consideration for you.


Both the 2019 Ford F-150 and 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are very close in quality and reliability. However, the Ford F-150 offers more engine choices and capability while also being handier for the job. Drivers looking for more luxury will also find it in the F-150's top trim level options.
