2015 Chevrolet Silverado
2015 Ford F-150
The 2015 Ford F-150 and the 2015 Chevy Silverado are the latest entries into the long-running competition between the two best-selling vehicles in America. We know that brand loyalists might not be swayed one way or another by facts, figures, or anything else, but for many people who want to just buy the best truck for the money, no matter what it says on the grille, we’ve put together a comprehensive comparison to show you which one of these models will prove a better choice.
- Fuel Economy: Looking at the base V6 engines with rear-wheel drive? The two trucks received an identical 20 mpg combined, while all-wheel drive knocked the figure down to 19 mpg, according to the EPA. The V8 powered Ford gets an EPA estimated 18 mpg combined or 17 mpg combined with all-wheel drive, while the V8 powered Silverado is rated at up to 19 mpg combined with front wheel drive and 18 mpg combined with all-wheel drive. The Chevy is more efficient with V8 power.
- Power: The Chevy Silverado gives you the option of a big 6.2L V8 that cranks out 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The biggest Ford engine is only a 5.0L V8 that makes 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque. The V8 Chevy obviously makes more power here in this matchup.
- Towing: When you go with the V8 powered Silverado, you’ll be able to tow up to 12,000 pounds when properly equipped. The V8 equipped Ford F-150 is only able to pull up to 11,300 pounds. For tough jobs, you’ll want all the towing capacity you can get.
- Safety: The Chevrolet Silverado got a best possible 5-Star rating in crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, while the Ford F-150 only earned four stars overall. Don’t you want to choose the safer option for your family?
