In the market for a new pickup in the Peoria area? Ford and Chevy are top truck brands, so it makes sense that many East Peoria shoppers choose either the F-150 or Silverado 1500. In this 2019 Ford F-150 vs. 2019 Chevy Silverado comparison from Mike Murphy Ford, find out how the 2019 Ford F-150 is better equipped to serve your needs.
When you opt for the new F-150, you’ll get a far more powerful base engine.
Take your pick between a 6- or 10-speed automatic smooth-shifting transmission on the F-150. The Chevy, on the other hand, only offers a 6-speed automatic.
Why pay extra for more features on the Silverado, when you can have an impressive standard suite of features on the F-150 at a lower MSRP? For instance, the F-150’s rearview camera boasts dynamic hitch assist to facilitate smooth connections to trailers, while the Silverado’s rearview camera doesn’t have such a feature available.
Take advantage of these additional F-150 feature highlights that you won’t find in the Silverado:
Both the F-150 and Silverado are stars among industry experts like Edmunds and U.S. News. Despite this competition, the F-150 maintains a slight edge over the Chevy pickup. The F-150 , received a rating of 8.8/10 from U.S. News and an 8.1/10 from Edmunds. Meanwhile, the Silverado earned an 8.7/10 and a 7.2/10, respectively. Auto critics don’t have the final say on which pickup you’ll drive around Pekin, of course, but they certainly merit your attention.
On paper, the new Ford F-150 beats the new Chevy Silverado 1500 outright, but nothing compares to how you feel behind the wheel.
