Silverado 1500 vs. F-150: Towing Power

Whether they’re on the job or heading to the lake for the weekend, towing power is a necessity for just about any truck shopper. Ford vs. Chevy towing has always been a heated competition; in 2021, the Chevy Silverado comes out on top. With its most powerful engine—an EcoTec3 V8—the Silverado 1500 can tow 13,300 pounds. The F-150 comes close but doesn’t quite match the Silverado, towing 13,100 pounds with its EcoBoost® V6 engine.

In addition to greater towing power, the 2021 Silverado also comes through with these helpful towing features:

  • Standard Trailering Package: Provides a 2-inch receiver and a hitch platform, an automatic locking rear differential, a 4-pin connector, and a 7-wire harness with a 7-way sealed connector so you’re ready to tow as soon as you secure the keys.
  • Available Max Trailering Package: Help relieve towing stress on your truck with this available package, which adds revised shock tuning, upgraded rear springs, and more.
  • Available Towing Mirrors: Get a clearer picture of your surroundings while changing lanes or merging with a trailer in tow with the available towing mirrors for the Chevy Silverado.

Silverado 1500 vs. F-150: Interior Measurements

Johns Creek truck drivers understand all too well that cabin space is a precious commodity in a pickup truck. Compare F-150 vs. Silverado interior measurements to discover the right fit for your comfort:

Chevy Silverado Interior Dimensions

  • Front Legroom: 44.5 inches
  • Front Headroom: 43.1 inches
  • Front Hip Room: 60.9 inches
  • Front Shoulder Room: 66.1 inches

Ford F-150 Interior Dimensions

Chevy vs. Ford Safety Features

When you compare Ford vs. Chevy safety features, you will find that all Chevy models, including the Silverado, provide standard Teen Driver Technology. The Ford F-150 offers no such feature, and even if you don’t have a young driver who will borrow your truck, you can still put the system to good use when friends and coworkers get behind the wheel. Teen Driver allows you to program safety parameters on your second key fob; when you hand that key over to a friend or family member, they will have to drive using your pre-set volume limits, speed limits, and more. You can rest assured that they are treating your truck safely on the road!
