2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 in Carson City, NV

When you rely on your full-size pickup truck to get the job done every day, you want one that is both capable yet also fun to drive. This combination and so much more can be found in the 2017 Ford F-150. In order to show you how dominate the F-150 is, we at Capital Ford have created this 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 in Carson City, NV, comparison. Come on down to our dealership to see it for yourself!

Powering both of these full-size pickup trucks are some massive powertrains. However, the F-150 offers you the choice between four different engines to match your specific needs, while the Silverado 1500 limits you to only three options. Even though the Ford F-150 has a smaller, available 5.0L V8 engine, compared to the Silverado’s optional 5.3L V8 powertrain, the F-150 still provides you with an impressive 385 horsepower and 387 lb.-ft. of torque. The Silverado 1500 on the other hand, only produces 355 horsepower and 383 lb.-ft. of torque despite its larger size. Load up the truck bed of the F-150 with as much as you want, thanks to its 3,270-lb. maximum payload capacity1. Be careful of how much you put in the back of the Silverado because it only has a 2,250-lb. maximum payload capacity2. Plus, with a fuel-efficient rating of 25 MPG hwy3, you can enjoy the performance of the F-150 longer. You’ll be spending more time at the pump and less time on the road due to the Silverado’s fuel-efficient rating of 24 MPG hwy3.

Our next stop in this 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 in Carson City, NV, competition is the wide variety of innovative technologies in each. At its base trim, the F-150 surrounds the entire cabin with music coming from six speakers. With only four speakers offered in the Silverado 1500, your tunes may be a little tough to hear at times. When you need help backing up your boat into Lake Tahoe, the available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ in the F-150 has you covered. This system makes your life easier by letting you control the direction of the trailer by simply turning a knob. Controlling the movement of your trailer may prove more difficult in the Silverado, as it does not offer this feature at all.

The Ford F-150 beats out the Chevy Silverado 1500 yet again when it comes to space and convenience. With a 62.3 cubic ft. of total cargo space4 in the F-150, you’ll easily be able to load up all of your gear and head out for a day trip to Mills Park. Some things might need to be left behind in the Silverado because it only offers 61 cubic ft. of total cargo volume4. Equip the F-150 with the BoxLink™ system and receive conveniences like four interface plates to accommodate any number of Ford and aftermarket storage bins, dividers, and four lockable, removable cleats. Unfortunately, the Silverado 1500 does not offer such a system as this.

With so much more to offer, the Ford F-150 is the clear winner of this 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 in Carson City, NV, comparison. Visit us today at Capital Ford to test drive one today!
