When comparing full-sized pickup trucks, you have to go beyond the numbers.


At Jack Burford Chevrolet, we know that the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the best truck in Eastern Kentucky. It can do the work, the shopping, take the kids to activities and go out for a long drive afterward. The Silverado retains more loyal customers than any pickup – period. That’s Chevrolet truck owners keep their pickups for longer than the next brand.


Still, it all comes down to the numbers. Here is a sample of those numbers when comparing our Silverado with one of its rivals - the Ford F-150.

Looking at this comparison, there is a lot more to consider between these two strong competitors:


  • Better overall fuel economy
  • Larger maximum Payload capacity when equipped with the NHT Maximum Towing Package
  • Rolled steel construction – from the frame up the cab and box – for better protection of occupants and payload, along with better durability.
  • Offers OnStar Crash Response, among other safety features keeping the Silverado safe.
  • Available 4GLTE in-vehicle WiFi.


There is another thing to consider: overall value. Value is not just about price, but what the Silverado offers compared to the Ford F-150. Take everything said here for one thing: The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is the best choice for a pickup in Eastern Kentucky!
