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.

Electric Ford F-150 Prototype Tows 1 Million Pounds

2019 Ford F-150 | Ogden, UT

Until now, there haven’t been many options for drivers who want an electric vehicle but still need something that can tow and haul. However, at the beginning of this year, Ford announced that they’d be releasing an all-electric version of their Ford F-150. Since then, that announcement has inspired lots of excitement in the eco-conscious community.

Though Ford has yet to announce exactly when the all-electric F-150 will go into production, it has done a great job of keeping fans excited. This summer, Ford released a video that demonstrated the immense towing capabilities of the electric Ford F-150 prototype. In it, the chief engineer of the F-150, Linda Zhang, shows off the electric F-150 prototype’s towing power by pulling 42 2019 Ford F-150 trucks as well as 10 double-decker rail cars. Altogether, the electric Ford F-150 prototype tows 1 million pounds in the video.

Granted, the prototype boasts a greater capability than what the production version of the electric truck will offer. But whatever capability it does provide is sure to be enough to meet, and perhaps exceed, the needs of electric-truck consumers.
