2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500

Serving Seneca, Anderson, and Greenville, SC

The 2017 Ford F-150 is a powerful pickup truck that has a lineup of seven models with signature cab designs like the SuperCab and SuperCrew. The 2017 Chevy Silverado is also a reliable pickup truck with a muscular design. With its EcoBoost and Ti-VCT engine options, the Ford F-150 has a more advanced powertrain than the Silverado 1500. The robust F-150 Raptor edition boasts class-leading features such as the 10-speed automatic transmission system and Terrain Management System.

Powertrain

When equipped with the high-output 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 engine, the 2017 Ford F-150 offers easy access to 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. Although it generates an impressive output of 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, the Chevy Silverado 1500's 6.2 L EcoTec3 V8 engine still cannot compete with the six-cylinder EcoBoost engine. If you want an eight-cylinder engine under the hood of your 2017 Ford F-150, opt for the 5.0 L Ti-VCT unit. Rated at 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque, this V8 engine delivers better performance than the Chevy Silverado 1500's 4.3 EcoTec3 engine and 5.3 EcoTec3 engine. The versatile Ti-VCT engine is also compatible with compressed natural gas. Additionally, this Ford pickup truck is available with a 2.7 L EcoBoost engine or 3.5 L Ti-VCT engine. The Silverado 1500 doesn't offer such compact installations in the powertrain.

Handling

A 10-speed automatic transmission system makes it easy to handle the 2017 Ford F-150. This innovative transmission is exclusively paired with the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 engine. An eight-speed automatic transmission system in the Chevy Silverado 1500 simply doesn't deliver as many shifting options. As heavy-duty pickup trucks, both models are available with 4x4 drive of Rear-Wheel Drive. An electronic locking differential improves the 4x4 system in this Ford model. Engineered to handle touch off-road conditions, the Terrain Management System is integrated into the Ford F-150 Raptor edition. This advanced technology includes six different settings that can adapt to various landscapes and weather events. Hill Descent Control also allows the Ford F-150 to precisely crawl down inclines. With a maximum payload rating of 3,270 pounds, this Ford pickup truck makes the ideal vehicle for work. The Chevy Silverado 1500 is only capable of handling a payload of just under 2,000 pounds.

Convenience

An 8-inch LCD productivity screen is included in the 2017 Ford F-150. Integrated into the instrument cluster, this LCD display provides updates on the vehicle's towing settings, fuel economy and other important parameters. The Chevy Silverado 1500 has a 4.2-inch Driver Information Center that simply doesn't match the 8-inch LCD screen in the Ford F-150. Another convenient amenity inside this Ford pickup truck is the AC outlet that's rated at 110 volts. This three-prong outlet can support devices that require up to 400 watts of charging power. The Ford F-150 also has innovative exterior features like the remote tailgate release function that can be activated with a key fob or switch.
