The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150 are both legendary pickup trucks, so how do you know which one is right for you? Check out this side-by-side comparison of these pickups to find out who has the best fuel economy, bed and tailgate tech, and much more.
Performance and Fuel Economy
Both the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150 are powerful trucks with impressive performance and towing power. But the Chevy Silverado 1500 also has the benefit of best-in-class highway fuel economy when equipped with the 3.0-liter Duramax® Turbo-diesel engine. This engine gets a whopping 33 mpg on the highway, which will save you serious cash—and you’ll stop at the gas station less often.
Bed and Tailgate
When it comes to the bed and tailgate, it’s hard to beat the Chevy Silverado 1500. The Silverado comes with Durabed, the most functional bed of any pickup truck, thanks to its class-leading volume and number of tie-downs.
The Silverado 1500 also offers the first power up/down tailgate in the industry, a super convenient option that makes accessing your cargo area easier than ever and that you won’t find on the Ford F-150. Chevy also offers the Multi-Flex tailgate on the Silverado 1500, which can be changed to multiple configurations for different types of cargo or used as a step or workstation.
Interior Space and Tech
The Silverado 1500 and the Ford F-150 both offer comfortable cabs with plenty of tech. However, the Silverado 1500 offers best-in-class front headroom and legroom for added comfort, especially for tall passengers. The Silverado 1500 also has innovative seatback storage to help declutter and make the cab feel even more spacious.
The Silverado is also unique in its class-leading camera views. The Ford F-150 can’t compete with the Silverado’s 15 unique camera views, which can view straight through a trailer and inside it, look down at the hitch, and see sharp side and front angles that give you a clearer view of what’s around your truck.
The Chevy Silverado 1500 has tons of special editions that let you find the perfect pickup for your needs. From Trail Boss trims that add to the Silverado’s off-roading prowess to the Midnight and Rally Editions that add sophisticated and sport-inspired looks, the Silverado 1500 has a special edition for everyone.
