When it’s time for a new vehicle in Rifle, many shoppers gravitate toward Ford and Chevy due to their great standing as trusted auto brands with storied pasts. So, if you’re in the market for a new pickup truck, we’re not surprised you ended up at a Chevy Silverado vs. Ford F-150 comparison! Read on to find out why the award-winning Ford F-150 is a favorable choice.

F-150 vs. Silverado: Performance

When you opt for the new F-150, you’ll get a far more powerful base engine. The best part? Even though it’s more powerful, it’s a smaller engine than the Silverado, so you’ll get better fuel economy, too:

  • 2019 Ford F-150 Base Engine
    • 3.3L Ti-VCT V6
    • 290 hp
    • 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway
  • 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 Base Engine
    • 4.3L EcoTec3 V6
    • 285 hp
    • 15 mpg city/25 mpg highway

You’ll have a choice of a 6- or 10-speed automatic smooth-shifting transmission on the F-150, while the Silverado only offers a 6-speed automatic.

F-150 vs. Silverado: Advanced Features

Grand Junction shoppers who opt for the F-150 will be pleased with its standard suite of features. Not only does the entry-level F-150 start out at a lower MSRP than the Silverado, but it also offers more of the standard features you’ve come to expect from a pickup truck, like a Rearview Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist. The base Silverado does offer a rearview camera, but a comparable hitch assist feature simply isn’t available.

Here are some other feature highlights for the F-150 that you won’t find in the Silverado:

  • Pre-Collison Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Curve Control
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System
