Ways that the 2020 F-150 Beats the Silverado

The Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are the nation’s number one and number two best-selling trucks — in that order, and for a reason. For 2020, the F-150 beats the Silverado in nearly every category.

The biggest win for the 2020 Ford F-150? The inclusion of the Ford F-150 Raptor, the off-road-ready high-performance truck. Chevy does not offer a competitor in the Silverado lineup.

Ford’s available diesel engine, the 3.0-liter Power Stroke® is capable of towing up to 11,500 pounds. The Silverado’s new diesel engine, which was due for 2019 but was delayed until the 2020 model year, only enables towing up to 9,300 pounds.

The 2020 F-150’s most powerful engine is the 3.5-liter EcoBoost®, which pumps out 470 lb-ft of torque. That’s a best-in-class rating, which means — you guessed it — it outperforms the Silverado.

The 2020 Ford F-150 also delivers superior safety technologies. The new Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of safety features includes Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information) with Trailer Coverage, Hill Descent Control™, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, the Lane-Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, a Rear View Camera, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go.

2019 Ford Edge Achieves Top Safety Pick Status from IIHS

The 2019 Ford Edge recently underwent safety testing with independent third-party Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), earning the coveted distinction of Top Safety Pick. In fact, the Edge aced all six areas of IIHS crash testing to earn this honor.

“We are really pleased the insurance industry places such a high degree of trust in our 2019 Ford Edge,” said Angela Cascaden, Ford Edge Marketing Manager. “It not only offers a number of innovative safety features for passengers, it backs that all up with a host of driver-assist technologies designed to help improve confidence behind the wheel.”

According to the IIHS, it’s the Edge’s solid body structure and standard front crash prevention features that make it such a worthwhile SUV for safety. The IIHS also lauded the Edge’s available LED projector headlamps with curve-adaptive technology.

The 2019 Ford Edge comes standard with Ford’s comprehensive suite of active safety technologies, called Ford Co-Pilot360™. This suite includes Ford’s Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. The IIHS specifically lauded this technology, saying it “rates superior for its ability to react to an imminent crash with another vehicle.” Also included in Co-Pilot360 is BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, the Lane-Keeping System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go and Lane Centering, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and the Rear View Camera.
