2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. 2017 Ford F-150
When you look at the many options in the full-size, light-duty pickup segment, two models seem to naturally rise to the top of the pack. For as long as we can remember, the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2017 Ford F-150 have represented the loftiest heights of the segment, and the competition hasn’t always been so friendly. Such is the case for the new model year, with each of these models set to arrive in dealerships around the country. So, how do they stack up when compared head to head?
In their standard iterations, the differences between the two models are made abundantly clear. While they each employ a standard V6 engine -- a 4.3L V6 for the Silverado 1500, and a 3.5L V6 for the F-150 -- the power numbers for the Chevy best its Ford rivals across the board. While the Ford musters an admirable 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque along with 1,910-pound payload capacity, the Chevrolet model returns standard ratings of 285 hp, 305 lb-ft of torque and a 1,960-pound towing capacity. When it comes to standard power numbers, it’s an inarguable fact that the Chevy Silverado 1500 has its Ford counterpart on the ropes.
