Two pickup trucks that tend to enter the conversation more than most are the Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado. Whether you use your truck for work, everyday driving, towing things like a boat or anything else, these two both offer the power and comfort that drivers need from a truck. But how do they compare? Take a look at our 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 comparison page to see which would be better for you.
If there is one thing that these two trucks have in common, it is a capacity and tendency for tough jobs and hard work. Both put up high towing numbers that even go north of 12,000 pounds. You’ll also be able to do a good amount of customization with either truck, which includes picking between multiple cab styles, bed lengths, and engine options.
The 2017 F-150 and Silverado won’t disappoint when it comes to towing numbers, but payload is another stat that we love to keep an eye on. Ford is notorious for going the extra mile when it comes to a payload rating, and its 2017 model is no different. The 2017 Ford F-150 can handle up to 3,270 pounds in its truck bed as payload. The Chevy Silverado, on the other hand, lags behind at just a 2,250-pound payload capacity.
Another reason we’re such big fans of the Ford F-150 is just how many different options it has that go beyond things like cab style. The 2017 F-150 has multiple trim options and even things like the new STX Appearance package, which captures the spirit of the much-loved STX trim from the last generation F-150. These multiple trims ensure that you find the truck that you need, whether that is a spartan truck made for work or something with a little luxury is up to you.
