    Pickup Showdown: The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado vs The 2019 Ford F-150

     

    As modern pickup trucks become bigger and better, knowing that you’re making the right decision can be difficult. Fortunately, in the square-off of the 2019 Chevy Silverado vs 2019 Ford F-150, the results are a little more cut-and-dry. While these two excellent trucks present a worthy matchup, it only takes a little scrutiny to see the clear advantages presented by the Chevy Silverado.

     

    Let’s take an in-depth look at the advantages of both of these vehicles and how they compete with one another when placed side-by-side.

  • Performance

    Whether it’s hauling your best friend’s couch or hooking up your jet ski to the trailer hitch, most pickup owners look to their vehicles for their performance and capability. While they may look good, a pickup that can’t haul and tow simply isn’t living up to its name. Here’s a look at both the Silverado and the F-150 and whether they can stand up to the daily challenges that come with the title of pickup.

     

    Ford F-150

     

    The F-150 kicks things off with its standard 3.3L Ti-VCT V6, which delivers responsive performance, 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. The variable cam timing valves in this high-tech engine optimize power output at every point, making for a smooth and energy-efficient ride. Working in tandem with its six-speed automatic transmission and three selectable driving modes, the F-150 provides a smooth and efficient ride at all times.

     

    This Ford pickup also features unrivaled stability through its high-strength military-grade aluminum alloy that comprises the bed and overall body. The engineers over at ford implement a unique heat-treating process that hardens the already strong aluminum alloy to create a truck chassis that is quite unlike any other.

     

    Chevy Silverado

     

    Although the baseline 2019 Silverado is not flush with new features, bells and whistles, it is immediately apparent that Chevy still is keeping their emphasis on performance and power.

    The Silverado 1500 is capable of towing up to 9,900 pounds with the Vortec 5.3L V8 engine, and 12,200 pounds with the available 6.2L V8. In addition to its power and high-level towing capacity, Chevy has also introduced a variety of features to make your jobs smoother and easier than ever before. The new Stabilitrack system automatically detects if your trailer is swaying and applies both the trailer and vehicle brakes to help bring the load back in line.

     

    The Silverado also offers digital steering assist and hill start assist technology. The digital steering assist provides the driver with ease of handling and stability even at high speeds and with heavy loads, while the hill start assist holds your brakes until you press the gas, providing extra time to switch between brake and accelerator pedals without rolling backwards.

  • Interior and Connectivity

    Now that we’ve covered just how rugged and tough these two trucks can be, let’s dial it back a notch and focus on the comfort. While truck owners like their towing capacity, torque and flatbed size, you would be hard-pressed to find one that didn’t have an appreciation for fine leather trim or a well-appointed media center. Here are just a few of the ways that Chevy and Ford are making the pickup experience more comfortable than ever.

     

    Ford F-150

     

    One of the first things you will notice sitting behind the wheel of your new F-150 is the detailed and vibrant display screen right above the steering wheel. Referred to as the productivity screen, this control center provides information ranging from fuel economy to towing data. It also provides you the option to customize your screen using its four menu options: trip/fuel, truck info, towing and off-road. Have all the information you could need right at your fingertips with this unique new tool.

     

    Another distinct feature of the Ford-150 is its available 360-degree camera with split-view display. The system utilizes four cameras—one in the grille, tailgate, and under each of the sideview mirrors, allowing you to see all sides of the truck by combining the images together and displaying them on the center screen. The end result is a complete image of the perimeter of your truck. Use this unique advantage to avoid obstacles on the jobsite, squeeze through tight spaces, and get the job done quicker than ever before.

     

    In addition to these previously mentioned features, the F-150 also offers a range of driver-assist technologies such as pre-collision assist, lane keeping technology, blind spot information system, and adaptive cruise control. Use these features to avoid accidents and mishaps and enjoy your drive.

     

    Chevy Silverado

     

    Chevrolet understands that in addition to raw power and towing capability, many Silverado users want the amenities that make modern cars easy to use and convenient in our daily lives. This is why the 2019 Silverado offers a wide range of high-tech features.

     

    As soon as you slip into your new Silverado, you will immediately notice the close attention to comfort, detail and usability. The redesigned cabin is larger in all the areas where it counts the most. By offering more shoulder room, rear passenger space and front head and legroom, the 2019 Silverado offers one of the most comfortable pickup experiences yet.

     

    One of the biggest innovations to the interior of Chevrolet’s cars is the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system. Built directly into the front console of your car, the Apple and Android-compatible MyLink system seamlessly organizes and integrates your phone into the driving experience. With Carplay for iPhone users, Android Auto Compatibility, Sirus XM Travel Link and more, the MyLink can make your drive easier regardless of what phone you have or what you want to accomplish.

     

    The MyLink system is a practical addition to any type of Silverado. It allows you to play your favorite music directly from your phone, navigate to the jobsite, or make a call to the school letting them know your kid is running a few minutes late. Chevrolet has provided the tool, how you use it to make your life easier is up to you.

  • Safety

    Now we’ve saved the most important category for last. While big engines, towing capacities and sleek interior gadgets are all great in a new vehicle, they amount to very little if the truck isn’t safe. Luckily, both Chevy and Ford have implemented years of automotive experience to deliver two trucks that are at the forefront of safe vehicle design.

     

    Ford F-150

     

    Through the use of its adaptive driving system and extremely durable aluminum frame, the F-150 provides an exceedingly safe ride for everyone inside. Its safety evaluation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Highway Loss Data Institute resulted in an overall superior crashworthiness rating. Now you know that regardless of where the road takes you, you can ride safely and confidently in your F-150 pickup.

     

    Chevrolet Silverado

     

    As one of the most trusted car manufacturers in the country, the Chevrolet Silverado has invested countless hours and resources into developing cars that are as safe as possible. Here is a look at some of the features implemented on the 2019 Silverado that will provide you and your passengers with assurance and confidence.

     

    The rear park assist system on the Silverado takes the standard backup camera a step further by sensing stationary objects and warning the driver if a detected object is too close to the vehicle. This feature can be extremely helpful in both suburban and industrial settings.

     

    The Silverado also offers forward collision alerts with the use of its front-facing camera. This advanced feature alerts the driver to potential front-end collisions with detected vehicles. The technology can also alert you if you are following a vehicle too closely. Drivers have the option to set their distance indicator to near, medium, far, or off depending on their preference or the driving conditions.

     

    Additional safety features in the Silverado include lane departure warning systems, which alert the driver when they are unintentionally drifting out of your lane and the turn signal is not activated. Working in tandem with the lane departure warning is the option for the safety alert driver’s seat. This unique feature provides seat-bottom vibrations to the driver instead of audible safety alerts.

     

    The Silverado comes standard with passenger-sensing airbags, infant-only airbags, and daytime running lamps. The 2018 Silverado received an overall four-star crash rating from the National Highway Safety Traffic Health Administration, and a five-star rating on side impact. 

     

    Regardless of who you are, safety is a top priority in any car. Chevrolet takes this into account by integrating technology into the design to provide smart and efficient safety measures that seamlessly integrate into your daily routine.
