The F-150 offers five engine options including a diesel. Ford's full-size truck also employs several advanced features ranging from its available 10-speed automatic transmission to its lightweight aluminum construction. When it comes to towing and payload, the F-150 is best-in-class, and its fuel economy figures also top the segment, at least on paper. Ford offers the F-150 with a dizzying number of options and configurations ranging from a basic work truck to super luxurious family hauler, and Ford leads the industry in advanced systems to aid in parking, trailer hookup and safety.

The Chevy Silverado is the second best-selling pickup in America and is all new this year, dropping 450 pounds while improving figures for towing and payload. Silverado owners can choose between six engine options including a diesel, three transmission choices (6-speed, 8-speed and 10-speed depending on engine and trim) and eight models including a new Trail Boss version with a factory 2-inch suspension lift. Of note are unique features like a choice of configurable or power-operated tailgates, advanced driver-assist systems and a rearview camera mirror. Chevrolet has also expanded the Silverado’s bed width, giving it best-in-class volume figures. In addition, the bed floor is stronger than before.

Ford F-150 Advantages

Similarities

The Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado offer numerous trims, configurations and creature comforts, are able to tow over 10,000 pounds and provide truck buyers with a number of engine and transmission options. Both can be equipped with advanced driver assist systems and both offer a rugged off-road-capable model.

Final Recommendation

In the areas of comfort, power, features, trims and configurations, the 2019 Ford F-150 and 2019 Chevrolet Silverado match up fairly evenly. However, if you need maximum towing, payload, or off-roading capability, or you simply want the full-size truck with the most horsepower, the F-150 is the clear winner. The F-150 also offers a few more advanced tech systems to assist in towing, parking and trailering.
