2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Design Comparison
Perhaps the biggest design difference between the Ford tough 2017 F-150 and the Chevy Silverado is that the body of the F-150 is made from high-strength military grade aluminum compared to the traditional stamped steel body of the Chevy. At the entry level, this means that the new Ford F-150 is nearly 500 pounds lighter than the comparable Silverado. You’ll also have more options when selecting the new Ford F-150 partly thanks to the Raptor model, but we’ll tell you more about that in performance. With comparable cab and bed options, you’ll appreciate more room where it’s needed in the new Ford F-150 such as greater front head and shoulder room.
2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Performance Comparison
When it comes to the best performance for work, play, and everything in between, nothing beats the new 2017 Ford F-150. While the 2017 Chevy 1500 only offers three different engines, you’ll have your choice between five powerful and efficient engines with the new F-150. At the entry level, the standard V6 engines show about the same horsepower, but the base V6 in the Chevy must carry around nearly 500 more pounds of heavy steel. On the other end of the power spectrum, the available high-output twin-turbo engine in the new Ford F-150 pumps out an astonishing 450 horsepower with an even more phenomenal 510 lb/ft of torque. Nothing in the Chevy truck lineup can come close. This is also the engine you’ll find in the all-new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor that’s capable of taking you just about anywhere thanks to a new torque-on-demand 4WD transfer case and 3-inch Fox racing shocks. Once again, this is a level of off-road capability and fun you just don’t find in a Chevy.
2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Safety Comparison
From adventure to work or goofing around, remember that the safety in full-size trucks isn’t equal. When the independent experts at the IIHS put these trucks through a demanding barrage of crash and safety tests, the results were clear that the new 2017 Ford F-150 is the way to go. In the event of a small overlap front collision, the Chevy only managed an ‘Acceptable’ rating compared to the highest ‘Good’ rating for the 2017 Ford F-150. In fact, the new 2017 F-150 is so safe that it earned the prestigious 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick* when properly equipped by earning top marks in every crashworthiness test. When it comes to staying safe no matter what the job holds or where the road leads, the new 2017 Ford F-150 is clearly the safer truck.
