2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD vs. 2017 Ford F-350 Review

Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD than the Ford F-350. The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Ford F-350.

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).

If you go with the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Ford F-350.

With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Ford F-350.

The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD has a larger turning radius than the Ford F-350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
