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-350 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-350.

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). The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is somewhat more expensive than the Ford F-350.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a little wider than the Ford F-350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford F-350.

Handling
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford F-350, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Ford F-350, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 due to its slightly better towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is clearly outclassed by the Ford F-350.

Powertrain
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-350.

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-350. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a little less cargo capacity than the Ford F-350 for hauling material.
