F-150 vs Silverado: Capabilities

First off, it is capable of towing up to 14,000 pounds. That is thanks to the available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine, which creates 500 lb-ft of torque. At most, the Silverado can tow 13,300 pounds when powered by its available 6.2L V8 engine that generates 460 lb-ft of torque.

If you need to carry heavy gear in the bed of your truck, the 2021 F-150 is ready to answer the call. That is because its available 5.0L V8 engine helps it handle a payload of up to 3,325 pounds. At most, the 2021 Chevy Silverado can carry a payload of 2,280 pounds.

Enjoy Extra Convenience in Your New Truck

With either truck, there are a variety of features you can get to help make your life easier. They each offer available power tailgates, which let you open and close it with the push of a button. Available bed power outlets and LED lighting help you work out of the back of either pickup as well.

What separates the two is the added help you'll have when behind the wheel of the Ford F-150. That includes available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. With a simple turn of a knob, this system will help you reverse your trailer or whatever you are towing the exact direction you want it to go.

You can also get available Active Park Assist 2.0, which will help you safely get your F-150 into open parking spaces. That is because this system can automatically steer the truck into parallel and perpendicular spots for you.

Premium Comfort  

Shifting to inside the cabin, there is plenty of space to enjoy in both trucks. That way, not only yourself but your passengers as well can enjoy a comfortable ride. The Ford F-150 though features some added luxury that you won't find in the 2021 Silverado.

With its available multi-contour front seats with Active Motion®, you won't feel fatigued at all driving the F-150. In fact, thanks to the lumbar active motion, you can make sure your back gets the comfort and support it needs while driving.

Plus, the F-150 also offers the available Max Recline Seats, which lets you lay the seats all the way back so you can take that midday break or a nice relaxing rest during your next road trip.
