Drivers in the Merrillville area want a pickup that provides power, efficiency, reliability, and the latest technology. Both the 2015 Chevy Silverado and the 2015 Ford F-150 claim to do just that. The question is—which one is the better buy? You can find out below:

  • Fuel Economy: The base V6 in both of these full size trucks offers an impressive 20 mpg combined with rear wheel drive or 19 mpg combined with all-wheel drive, according to EPA estimates. When you pick the V8 version of the Ford, the EPA says it will earn 18 mpg combined or 17 mpg combined with all-wheel drive. The V8 powered Silverado earns a superior 19 mpg combined with front wheel drive and 18 mpg combined with all-wheel drive. The Silverado clearly wins when it comes to fuel economy.
  • Power: The Silverado is available with a big 6.2L V8 that cranks out 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The biggest V8 in the Ford is a 5.0L engine that only makes 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque. The V8 equipped Silverado simply cranks out more power.
  • Towing: The V8 powered Silverado is able to pull up to 12,000 pounds—that’s six tons—when properly equipped. The V8 equipped Ford F-150 is only able to pull up to 11,300 pounds.
  • Safety: When it comes to safety, the Silverado wins out once again. The Chevrolet Silverado is rated at the best possible five-stars overall based on NHTSA testing. The Ford F-150 is only rated at four-stars overall.
  • Features: The Silverado gets OnStar telematics and 4G LTE wireless connectivity system with in-car WiFi hotspot. There’s nothing like that available on the latest F-150. Otherwise, both models are available with a wide array of features and options to customize your truck.
