F-150 vs Silverado: Performance Specs

2018 Ford F-150 PerformanceWith the F-150 or Silverado, you'll have a lineup of engine options at your fingertips. With the Chevy Silverado, you'll have a trio of engines to choose from. Under the hood, the most powerful engine option is a brawny 6.2L V8 with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Those are impressive numbers, but the Ford truck can do even better with its available twin-turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost® V6. It kicks out an impressive 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, perfect for thrills when you get behind the wheel of the F-150 Raptor. Plus, you'll have even more engines to choose from with the Ford F-150: six available engines, to be exact.

On higher trims, both trucks offer smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmissions. Those speeds help optimize output and fuel economy, wherever the road takes you.

All-Star Truck Capabilities

The Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado are impressive beasts when it comes to towing and hauling. The Chevy truck can trailer up to 12,500 pounds when fitted with the V8 engine mentioned above. That's an excellent showing, but the F-150 has a few tricks in store with its available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6.

That engine cranks out a whopping 470 lb-ft of torque, giving it a major advantage in terms of towing. The Ford truck can tow up to 13,200 pounds, leaving the Silverado in the dust when it comes to transporting the largest boats and camping trailers.

Planning to hit those off-road trails? Only Ford has a trim level built specially for the job: the F-150 Raptor. The Raptor includes the Terrain Management System™ to adjust driving dynamics to the ground beneath your wheels.

Advanced Technology Features

If your favorite apps include your music library, you'll appreciate the optional premium sound systems. In the Silverado, an available 7-speaker Bose® audio system adds clarity to your favorite tunes. However, the F-150 takes it up a notch with its 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen® sound system, delivering music that really moves you.
