Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado

Compare the 2020 Ford F-150 and 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500

The search for the right truck can take some time as you'll want to consider everything from the cabin space to the towing capacities. Many of the most popular new trucks have also recently received a redesign to add more tech to make your work easier. Among these, the 2020 Ford F-150 and 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 stand out. Below, we highlight differences between the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado 1500 to help you choose between them!


  • Drivers will have a range of engines to choose from for each truck, but there are more options for the 2020 Ford F-150 than the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500.
  • If you prefer a diesel truck, the Ford F-150 diesel six-cylinder engine handles up to 11,500 pounds of towing, which bests the 9,300-pound towing capacity of the Chevy Silverado 1500 diesel engine. For gas engines, the Ford F-150 EcoBoost V6 sits just below the max payload of the Chevy Silverado 1500, 13,200 pounds versus 13,400.
  • The Ford F-150 easily beats the Chevy Silverado 1500 in payload capacity as it handles over 1,000 pounds more than the Chevy truck, 2,250-pound payload versus 3,270-pound max payload in the Ford F-150.


  • Drivers will also enjoy lots of technologies in both these trucks, but its small differences that again put the Ford F-150 ahead. For instance, the Ford F-150 Blind-Spot Information System (BLIS) includes a trailer detection function so that you can change lanes with confidence even with a trailer hitched. The Chevy Silverado 1500 blind-spot detection system doesn't take into account your trailer.
  • The Ford F-150 provides a class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist function that lets you steer the trailer with a knob when backing up so that you can more easily park it. Backing your trailer into a spot won't be as easy with the Chevy Silverado 1500.
  • Every 2020 Ford F-150 comes standard with the Ford Co-Pilot360 package of driver-assistance features, which includes BLIS, Pre-Collision Assist, and more. You'll have to pay extra to get such driver-assist features on your Chevy Silverado 1500.
