Head to Head Comparison Research

2019 Ford F-150 vs 2019 Chevy Silverado | Comparison Joe Cotton Ford


When traveling around Chicagoland for work or leisure, it helps to be in a dependable and capable truck. Two worthwhile options are the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2019 Ford F-150. Which one would completely satisfy your driving needs?

 

To help answer that question, we created this 2019 Ford F-150 vs. 2019 Chevy Silverado comparison research page. Learn all about these trucks below, and contact us at Joe Cotton Ford Ford in Carol Stream if you have any questions. Each and every model year, these two pickup trucks go head-to-head to see which is the best, most powerful and most capable full size truck. The same is true for the 2019 Ford F-150 versus the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500.  

 

Seeing that we are a Ford dealer here at Joe Cotton Ford in Carol Stream, we’re a little partial about Ford. But there’s no bias in saying the new Ford F-150 is the better and more capable truck, and we’ve got the numbers to prove it. So, let’s get right down to it and find out all the ways the 2019 F-150 is more impressive than the 2019 Silverado. 


"December (2018) capped another strong year for Ford and the industry," said Ford Vice President Mark LaNeve. "Ford sold more than 900,000 F-Series trucks in 2018 to extend our leadership position to 42 consecutive years as America's best-selling pickup."

We mentioned in our introduction that the Ford vs Chevy rivalry has been going on forever. A lot of that has to do with truck buyers, because they demand performance on all levels. Full size truck customers have been choosing Ford trucks over Chevy trucks for the last 42 Years. Things are not changing this year!

That’s because the 2019 Ford F-150 lineup features more horsepower and more torque than the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500. More specifically, the 2019 F-150 lineup tops out at 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, whereas the 2019 Silverado 1500 lineup tops out at only 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.

Regardless of its engine, the F-150’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) Chevrolet only offers an automatic engine start/stop system on the Silverado LT/RST/LTZ/High Country/WT 2.7-liter.

The F-150’s optional fuel tank has 7.7 gallons more fuel capacity than the Silverado Regular Cab’s standard fuel tank (36 vs. 28.3 gallons).

Car and Driver

 

Compare Suspension and Handling

 

For better maneuverability, the F-150 6.5 ft. bed Regular Cab’s turning circle is 5.6 feet tighter than the Silverado Short Bed Crew Cab’s (40.7 feet vs. 46.3 feet).

 

For greater off-road capability the F-150 6.5 ft. bed SuperCrew has a 1.3 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Silverado Standard Bed Crew Cab (9.3 vs. 8 inches), allowing the F-150 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The F-150 Raptor SuperCab’s minimum ground clearance is .6 inch higher than on the Silverado Short Bed Crew Cab Lifted (11.5 vs. 10.9 inches).

 

Compare Chassis

 

The Ford F-150 may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs up to about 600 pounds less than the Chevrolet Silverado.

 

The front grille of the F-150 uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Silverado doesn’t offer active grille shutters.

 

Compare Cargo Capacity

The F-150 has stake post holes, to allow the containment of tall, light loads. The Silverado doesn’t offer stake post holes.

Compare Payload and Towing

Maximum trailer towing in the Chevrolet Silverado is limited to 12200 pounds. The F-150 6.5 ft. bed SuperCrew offers up to a 13200 lbs. towing capacity.

                                           Note: Silverado does not come in a regular cab.


F-150 high-strength, military-grade, aluminum body and box help deliver capability on par with or greater than Silverado:

  • Best-in-class(1) 3270-lbs. max. payload capacity(3)
  • Best-in-class(1) 13,200-lbs. max. conventional trailer tow rating(4)
  • AND, F-150 offers: Fully boxed frame with eight crossmembers made of high-strength steel

Compare Technology & Ergonomics

In case you lock your keys in your vehicle, or don’t have them with you, you can let yourself in using the F-150’s standard exterior keypad (not available on F-150 XL). The Silverado doesn’t offer an exterior keypad entry system, and its extra cost OnStar ® can’t unlock the doors if the vehicle doesn’t have cell phone reception or the driver can’t contact the service.

The F-150’s standard speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Silverado’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted. The F-150’s optional wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield.

To keep a safe, consistent following distance, the F-150 (except XL/XLT) offers an optional Adaptive Cruise Control, which alters the speed of the vehicle without driver intervention. This allows the driver to use cruise control more safely without constantly having to disengage it when approaching slower traffic. The Silverado doesn’t offer an adaptive cruise control.

The F-150 (except XL/XLT)’s optional Park Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Silverado doesn’t offer an automated parking system.

F-150 offers two smart-charging USB ports, power-deployable running boards, locking tailgate, available full LED exterior lighting — including class-exclusive(1) LED side-mirror spotlights, FordPass Connect with Wi-Fi hotspot capability and SYNC 3 with 8-inch touchscreen. 

F-150 also offers Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Pedestrian Detection and class-exclusive:(1)

  •  *Active Park Assist
  •  *Pro Trailer Backup Assist
  •  *Tailgate step

The 2019 F-150 is smart, tough and capable, with impressive technologies:

  • *Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) is standard
  • *Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and Pedestrian Detection
  • *FordPass Connect 4G LTE modem with Wi-Fi hotspot capability for up to 10 devices at one time
  • *B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen

I went to Joe Cotton Ford to buy a 2019 Ford Edge because I liked the way they treated me when I bought a new Mustang last year. They really do treat you right like no other dealer I've ever dealt with before. Salesman Jason Conn truly cares about the customer, finding the exact car I wanted through dealer trade.

I rarely go to a dealer. None of my 4 cars are in warranty so I do most of the work myself. When it is something I cannot do I have a friend who is a private mechanic and he solves the rest of the problems. My 2005 Ford GT was a special case and needed an expert to help with my issues. I am lucky enough to know Dave Malloy, Joe Cottons Service Manager and he encouraged me to bring the car down and he and his SVT certivfied mechanic Todd would help me out. I could not have been more pleased with the whole experience. I was treated like Royalty! My car received the best care of possible. It was fixed promply and properly. The charges were very much in line with the high quality of service I received. Dave was also MOST gracious in taking me around and interducing me the whole support team at Joe Cotton. Including Pam who runs the whole operation. I was impressed to say the least. Although I hope I don't need any serious service in the near future I will definately go back to Joe Cotton Ford when any events occur that require service for my Ford GT. I am convinced that they are the best. Also, should I need a new vehicle. Joe Cotton will be my first stop. I know the great treatment would continue. Sincerely Karl Ayer
