There has been an epic battle waging since the beginning of time. Well, at least, since the beginning of time for the creation of trucks, that is. In 1917, Ford released the world’s first truck known as the Model TT. The following year, Chevrolet unveiled its own truck, and the war began. Over 100 years have passed, and the two American automakers remained the biggest competitors in the truck market. So, now it’s time to compare the 2020 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500.
As light-duty, full-size pickup trucks, these two models immolate what hard work and independence truly mean. As worthy competitors, they have both set the bar high for trucks in general. Available in three different body styles, you can choose from varying bed lengths and cab configurations based on what you think you will need. The 2020 Ford F-150 is available in Regular Cab, SuperCab, and SuperCrew body styles with bed lengths varying between 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet, and 8 feet. Similarly, the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 comes as a Regular Cab with an 8.1-ft bed, Double Cab with a 6.6-ft bed, and Crew Cab with a 5.8 or 6.6-ft bed.
Along with a few tech similarities, such as Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless audio streaming, the two don’t really have anything else in common. The F-150 offers six engine choices, while the Silverado 1500 only has five (one engine has an option for an upgrade). As far as trim levels go, the F-150 has seven to choose from, and the Silverado 1500 is available in eight.
Let’s take a closer look at these two beautiful beasts to understand their differences further.
