Always in competition, the 2018 Chevy Silverado and the 2018 Ford F-150 have many similar features and capabilities that keep them ahead of the rest of the class.

Drivers in Clintonville, New London, and Shawano can explore the key differences between these full-size pickup trucks with our 2018 Chevy Silverado vs. 2018 Ford F-150 comparison.

Interior Space and Comfort

 Both the Silverado and the F-150 have a range of models that start with a work fleet vehicle and end with a luxury truck. In all models, however, the interior is well-designed and has plenty of durable materials with the higher trim levels enjoying plush fabrics and soft-touch surfaces. The seats are comfortable and supportive as well, which is a nice feature to have for vehicles designed for long distances.

The Silverado and the F-150 also come with several bed and cab configurations, including a single cab, extended cab, and 4-door crew cab, as well as short, standard, and long beds. Because of this, the cargo space varies based on the configuration you choose, but the Silverado offers a few more small-item storage spaces in the cabin that give it a slight edge.

Powertrains                

The base engine for the Silverado is a 4.3L V6 engine that produces 285 horsepower, with the upgrade of a 355-horsepower 5.3L V8 engine or a 6.2L V8 engine with 420 horsepower. The F-150 starts with a 290-horsepower 3.3L V6 engine and moves up to a 395-horsepower V8 engine, with a specialized engine available for the Raptor with 450 horsepower.

Though the F-150 has slightly more output, that doesn't have too much impact on the real-world application of these two trucks. Both have similar towing capacity and payload capacity, as well as plenty of features that make towing safer, such as a trailer brake controller and trailer sway control.

Technology

Both the Chevy Silverado and the F-150 have a long list of technology features available. A touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth® connectivity, premium sound, satellite radio, and HD Radio™ are just a few of the highlights.

Where the difference comes in, however, is with the brands of these two vehicles. The Silverado has a Chevy MyLink® infotainment system, which features intuitive, straightforward menu options and a variety of third-party app capability, while the F-150 uses a Sync 3 system. The Silverado also has a Bose premium sound system, compared to the F-150's Sony sound system, and comes with a wireless charging pad for constant connectivity and convenient charging.
