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.
