2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs 2015 Ford F150
In the battle of big trucks, there have always been three that stand tall above the rest. Yet even though those three tower above the competition, one amongst them stands even higher, proven by the fact that it has been the best selling truck in Canada for the past 47 years. We give the Ford F-series props for that accolade, we just cant put our finger on why, because we know that the Chevy Silverado is a better truck. We decided to take a closer look at the two vehicles differences to show you just why our Chevy should be shining brighter, so take a look at the 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs 2015 Ford F-150!
Chevy Silverado Advantages Over Ford F-series
We wont deny that the Ford F150 is a good looking truck, or that it certainly has some advantages like its all-new aluminum body. But when it comes down to whats important, the specifications, the Silverado has a clear advantage. With standard engines, the amount of power doesnt differ much. But upgrade both of them to the more powerful available engines, and the 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 has a 30 HP boost. Thats quite a bit of power, and power translates to the other important factors like payload, which it has a slight boost in, and towing capacity, which is where the Silverados big advantages begin to come into play. The ability to tow 2000 lbs. more behind the Silverado is an advantage no truck enthusiast should pass up.
But the advantages dont stop there. The Silverado has, not matter how little, an advantage in terms of fuel efficiency as well, saving you a bit of money as the gas pump though you might not notice much of a difference. More importantly, the bed of the Silverado 1500 can fit a little over 8 cubic feet more of your stuff. Thats a pretty big advantage as well, as more stuff means fewer trips. Nobody likes taking more than one trip.
