Ford and Chevrolet, two of America’s most popular automakers, are back in the headlines. These two automakers have been battling it out for decades, and the 2019 model year is no exception to the rule. The Ford F-150 is taking on the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, but only one will come out on top. Whether you call them light-duty pickups or you call them mid-size pickups, here are the results.
2019 Ford F-150
$28,155 – $67,135*
Horsepower, 3.3-Liter Ti-VCT V6 Engine
2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
$29,895 – $58,195*
Horsepower, 4.3-Liter EcoTec V6 Engine
The 2019 Ford F-150 is a great value for the money. This pickup is loaded with advanced technologies, it has flawless looks, and it comes in various trims, such the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited and Raptor. From its high-strength steel frame to its six-individual seats, this truck has it all. This class-leading vehicle starts at $28,155, but the premier Raptor trim starts at $52.855. Ford does allow for optional packages to better personalize the F-150, and financing options are available.
Chevy has logged more than 7 million miles of testing for the Silverado 1500, and it comes in eight trims. This includes the High Country, LTZ, LT, LT Trail Boss, RST and others. Most of the distinguishing factors come from choosing optional packages, and the front grille varies on some models. This pickup starts at $28,300, and it goes as high as $53,000. Thanks to a lack of overall accessories, the Silverado falls a bit short.
The Ford F-150 is bold in every sense of the word. The truck’s front grille is majestic thanks to its huge size, and there are chrome accents that flow throughout the body on the bumpers, side steps and grille. Depending on the trim of choice, some front grilles will come in a mesh-black design. There is also bold body molding along the pickup’s lower frame. There are also nice contours on the hood. Asymmetrical LEDs, badging and strong lines completes the overall appearance.
The Chevy Silverado 1500 has a curvaceous body from front to rear. This pickup also sports badging and chrome accents, but they’re not as pronounced as the competitor’s accents. Depending on the trim of choice, consumers will receive either a chrome or all-black grille. The front grille appears to be a bit cluttered with its extravagant design of horizontal bars and mesh backing. Overall, the Silverado 1500 has a nice design, but it’s not as impressive as the F-150.
Ford is introducing a six-engine lineup. The F-150 will host V6 and V8 EcoBoost engines. Depending on the trim, these engines could come equipped with turbocharged capability as well as twin-independent variable cam timing. There’s even a turbo-diesel engine. Horsepower generally ranges from 290 to 450 horsepower. These engines are paired with six and eight-speed automatic transmissions.
Chevrolet is offering a four-engine lineup. The Silverado 1500 comes equipped with a Driver Mode Selector for matching your driving environment. The smaller 4.3-liter V6 produces 285 horsepower while the larger 6.2-liter V8 produces 420 horsepower. Consumers will have access to six, eight and 10-speed automatic transmissions.
