2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs. 2016 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
With the Ford F-150 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford F-150. 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 about the same width as the Ford F-150. 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 somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than 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
If you've got something you need to tow, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will do just as well as the Ford F-150, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a little less horsepower than 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.
