Top Features Inside a Ford F-150 That You Won't Find in a Silverado

The Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado have been locked in competition for decades. While both trucks offer robust capability, the F-150 has a few tricks up its sleeve that give it the edge.

EcoBoost Engine Options: Ford's advanced EcoBoost engine lineup blends power and efficiency with the help of direct fuel injection and turbo charging. You'll be able to get your F-150 with either a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 with 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque or a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with 375 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. The Silverado has no similar engine choices.

High-Strength Aluminum Alloy Body: The new F-150 uses a military grade of aluminum for its body construction. The result is a dramatic reduction in weight while maintaining durable strength and capability. The Chevy Silverado sticks to heavy steel for its body.

Diesel Engine Option: The F-150 offers an exciting new 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel engine. This powerplant delivers plentiful low-end torque for towing applications while retaining an EPA-rated 30 mpg highway. The Silverado 1500 has no diesel engine option currently.

Trailer Backup Assist: Backing up a trailer can be a tricky maneuver for any driver. The new F-150 makes it a bit easier with Trailer Backup Assist. All you have to do is turn a knob toward the direction that you want the trailer to move and the system will make sure it lines up. You won't find this features in the Chevy Silverado.
