Dare To Compare: 2020 Ford F-150 VS 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 In Trail, BC


When you live in Trail, it’s likely you need the utility and capability that a pickup truck has to offer. Two options to consider if you’re looking for a truck are the  Ford F-150 and the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. These two trucks combine the power and capability you need, while still offering you a range of innovative technologies – but which is the right fit for you? This comparison looks at these two models to help determine which option fits the best with your lifestyle.

Power and Capability

Both the 2020 F-150 and 2020 Silverado 1500 offer powerful engine options, making it easy to find the right power to suit your needs. Each option offers six engines to choose from, ranging from V6 options to turbodiesels. When you look closely at the numbers, though, the F-150 offers best-in-class gas torque with its 3.5-litre EcoBoost® V6 engine and also has a best-in-class horsepower number with its high-output 3.5-litre EcoBoost® V6.

When you compare how much the trucks can haul, the F-150 comes out on top again. It has a maximum payload rating of 1,483 kg when equipped with the 5.0-litre V8 engine, which is more than 400 kg more than the Silverado 1500’s maximum payload rating of 1,021 kg.

Advanced Innovations

Technology can go a long way towards making your day-to-day life easier. Both the F-150 and the Silverado come with a range of technologies that offer connectivity and confidence out on the road. There are a few technologies that the Ford has, though, that the Silverado doesn’t. This includes Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. This class-exclusive innovation is available to help make reversing with a trailer that much easier. You simply just rotate the knob to the left or right – whatever direction you want the trailer to go – and it will move in that direction. While the Silverado does have some features that will help make trailering easy, Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ isn’t one of them.

You will also feel more confident behind the wheel of the F-150, thanks to Ford Co-Pilot360™. This suite of safety technologies provides you with driver-assistance features like BLIS® with Trailer Coverage, a Lane Keeping system, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, and more. The Silverado has similar technologies, but only on its higher trim levels.
