Take a look at the comparison down below to the Ford F-150 and see which one suits your needs best!

2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. 2021 Ford F-150

Engine Power

Both lineups offer impressive engine lineups, but the Chevy and Ford trucks start with a V6. The Silverado 1500 employs a 4.3-liter powertrain that delivers 305 pound-feet of torque. The Ford can't quite match this output, only offering 265 pound-feet.


Sticking with the base engine, the Chevy Silverado is the more desirable towing option. The V6 manages a maximum of 10,000 pounds towing when properly equipped - the base Ford V6 can only tow up to 5,000 pounds.

The Chevy and Ford trucks offer diesel engines capable of powerful torque output that increases towing capacity and fuel efficiency. However, the Silverado 1500 offers best-in-class highway fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 33 mpg. The Ford lineup has no engine that matches its efficiency.

Cargo Space

Thanks to roll-formed high-strength steel construction and best-in-class 89.1-cubic feet of standard cargo bed volume, Chevy's Durabed does more for your work and home project needs. The Ford has trouble matching these features. The Chevy Silverado also offers 12 standard tie-downs, twice as many as the Ford.

The Ford offers a useful workspace on its truck bed with the tailgate deployed, but it doesn't quite match the Chevy Silverado's available industry-first power-up/-down tailgate.


Sometimes, towing and hauling large loads of supplies and work equipment can be nerve-wracking, especially when you need to maneuver around obstacles and other vehicles. The Chevy Silverado 1500 makes it easy with up to 15-available camera views - more than the Ford F-150.


Looking to stretch out and enjoy the ride? The Chevy Silverado lineup offers best-in-class front head and legroom, making it a smooth ride for front-row passengers than what the Ford truck can offer.
