2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. 2014 Ford F-150 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford F-150 than in the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Ford F-150.

Convenience
The Ford F-150 requires less frequent visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or the Ford F-150, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a little wider than the Ford F-150, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford F-150.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Ford F-150.

Handling
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a similar turning radius to the Ford F-150, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Ford F-150, due to its slightly better towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 as you will the Ford F-150. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a slightly greater cargo capacity for your lumber or other material than the Ford F-150.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford F-150.
