The battle between Ford and Chevy is as classic as the battle between Pepsi and Coke. Where you might have a preference for one over the other based on taste, the Ford F-150 is the clear supreme in the full-size pickup segment based entirely on facts. What makes Ford the better choice? Let’s take a look.
If you want options in terms of engines, you just get more with Ford. The 2019 Ford F-150 is available with six engines to the Silverado’s five. Not only that, but Ford’s engines are generally more impressive. The F-150’s available 3.0-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V6 delivers the best fuel efficiency in the full-size pickup segment at 30 mpg highway, and the high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 featured in the off-road friendly F-150 Raptor and high-luxury F-150 Limited delivers an incredible 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.*
Numbers don’t lie, and one of these two pickups proves that it’s the more capable with the best-in-class performance specs. The 2019 Ford F-150 boasts best-in-class towing capacity with its 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine, which hauls up to 13,200 pounds when properly equipped.** The 3.0-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel V6, in addition to best-in-class fuel economy, offers the best towing capacity in its class at 11,400 pounds and best-in-class payload at 1,940 pounds.*
If you love adventure and excitement, there’s only one truck that’s meant for you: the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor. The new Raptor is designed specifically for off-roading with its 450-horsepower 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine, FOX Live Valve monotube shocks, and innovative and exclusive technologies like Terrain Management System™ and Trail Control™. If you love traversing over mud, sand, gravel, and snow with equal ease, there’s nothing better or more powerful than the F-150 Raptor.
If you need more convincing, seeing — and feeling — is believing. Stop into Sanderson Ford and take the new Ford F-150 for a spin.
