Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers passengers in its extended cab about the same head- and legroom as the Ford F-350. 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). Clearly, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a better financial choice over the Ford F-350, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 costs less to deliver to the dealership 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.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers much less torque than the Ford F-350, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of lumber or gardening supplies into the bed of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 as you will with the Ford F-350.
