With a stream of motorists around East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Nazareth, Lehigh Valley, and Easton asking about different specifications between different trucks, Ray Price Stroud Ford decided to craft this 2019 Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado comparison.

By reading this comprehensive review, you can get an organized and straightforward layout of key traits found in both models. In the coming sections, we'll be discussing various characteristics, such as the engine specifications, the off-road capabilities, and the work-oriented traits, including towing and payload.

Comparing Engine Specifications in F-150 vs Silverado

Selecting from the assortment of engines offered by both the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado is all about understanding what you want out of your truck.

The Ford F-150, for example, has six distinct powerplants available. Here are three of the most notable:

  • 5.0L V8 that produces 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L Power Stroke® V6 that generates 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 that delivers a whopping 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

In comparison, we have the Chevy Silverado, which attempts to match the F-150 in terms of both quantity and quality yet comes up short. Instead of six different engine selections, the Silverado offers just five, with the most capable being a 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 that musters 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Payload & Maximum Towing Capacity

Capability is often a sticking point for truck-lovers who need to tackle large jobs regularly, which is why the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado tout such impressive towing and payload specifications.

The Ford F-150, for example, will have no trouble towing a large trailer or the family boat thanks to a stunning maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds. If you need a little extra room for additional cargo, there's also the bed, which can capably hold upwards of 3,270 pounds.

If we compare these figures to the Chevy Silverado, we see the Ford F-150 has a clear edge considering the Silverado touts just a maximum towing capacity of 12,100 pounds and a maximum payload capacity of 2,285 pounds.

Off-Road Capabilities

When considering the off-road capabilities of the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado, it's no wonder adventurous drivers are lining up to settle into the driver's seat of each model.

You'll be able to choose between an assortment of off-road features in the Ford F-150, such as the FX4 Off-Road package that includes an electronic-locking rear differential, Hill Descent Control™, off-road tuned shock absorbers, skid plates, and the flashy FX4 Off-Road decal.

Additionally, this rugged truck can be outfitted with a 360-degree camera with accompanying split-view display, which comes in handy when moving through tight quarters or unknown mountain trails.

The Chevy Silverado, while sporting its own Hill Descent Control system and automatic locking rear differential, simply doesn't offer the same breadth of features found in the Ford F-150.

Given the superior performance, capability, and off-road readiness of the Ford F-150, it's clear this model is a better all-around option for folks in Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Easton, Lehigh Valley, and Nazareth.
