The 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. What's Your Choice?

Serving Columbus, Westerville, and Gahanna, OH

Drivers from across the country love the versatility of a full-size pickup truck. For years, the Ford F-150 has remained the most popular truck in the segment. Its smooth driving dynamics and impressive towing capabilities will appeal to a lot of people. Because of the F-150’s improved fuel economy, it is now more appealing than ever before. Ford also offers a number of premium features for the 2017 model, including a high-powered Sony sound system and Ford's innovative Sync 3 interface.

The new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 also proves to be a strong contender. Automotive journalists praise the Silverado 1500 for its comfortable and quiet ride. Let’s take a look at how these two top-selling trucks compare to each other.

Performance

Both trucks come standard with a strong V-6 engine, which can tow an impressive 7,600 pounds. If you demand even better gas mileage, look no further than Ford’s 2.7L EcoBoost engine. It can return up to 26 mpg while still managing to tow a stout 8,500 pounds. Meanwhile, the Silverado 1500 tops out at 24 mpg. When it comes to sheer performance, Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission truly gives the F-150 an edge over the competition. The combination of the fast-shifting transmission and a powerful 3.5L EcoBoost engine enables the F-150 to accelerate quicker than some sports cars. Although the Silverado can be equipped with a powerful V-8 engine, it fails to match the F-150’s overall fuel efficiency.

Off-Road Capabilities

Ford engineered the new F-150 Raptor to be a legendary off-road performer. You will be able to face nature’s toughest obstacles with ease. It comes loaded with a lot of special enhancements. When traveling on rough terrain, an advanced FOX Racing suspension helps the F-150 Raptor to remain poised. A Terrain Management System also comes standard, which enables you to choose from six different driving modes. All-terrain tires and an innovative 4WD system further enhance the pickup’s ruggedness. Chevy also offers an off-road package for the Silverado 1500. However, it is no match for the dynamic Ford F-150 Raptor.

Safety

For good reason, today’s truck enthusiasts expect a high level of crash protection. Fortunately, both pickups obtained a five-star safety rating. Like the Ford F-150, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 enables parents to set a speed limit for their teen drivers. While the Silverado’s optional backup camera is helpful, Ford’s 360-degree camera makes it much easier for drivers to detect obstacles. You will be able to obtain a complete view of the truck’s perimeter. Some of the similar driving aids include blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning. Unfortunately for Silverado 1500 buyers, Chevy doesn't offer adaptive cruise control or an automated parking system.


The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 remains a key player in the full-size truck segment. Nevertheless, it is still a few steps behind the 2017 Ford F-150. To see how the new F-150 performs on the road, stop by our Ford dealership for a test drive.
