2019 Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado Specs

The 2019 Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado both have six different available powertrains. Each truck also offers five gas-powered options and one turbo diesel. The F-150 stands out, though, for delivering best-in-class horsepower and best-in-class torque from its strongest engine.

The SelectShift® transmission on the F-150 gives you the ability to take over the gear shifting and drive manually without a clutch. The Silverado doesn't have this ability.

While each transmission has 10 gears available, the Chevy Silverado only offers the 10-speed transmission on two of its powertrains. The Ford F-150 makes the 10-speed SelectShift® transmission standard on five out of six powertrains.

2019 Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado Towing & Payload

With so much power under the hood, the 2019 Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado were made to be capable in any situation, which includes everything from traversing over steep terrain to carrying heavy loads of cargo.

While both can tow a big trailer and handle a hefty payload with ease, the F-150 sets itself apartment with both best-in-class towing capacity and best-in-class payload.

2019 Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado Features

From unloading your trailer to going off-roading, the 2019 Ford F-150 has you covered with the Ford Co-Pilot360™ system, which includes Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. By simply turning a knob on your dashboard, it can steer your truck and trailer into place, so you can unload your cargo in the most convenient spot.

When you're first hooking up to your trailer, the Rear View Camera system will switch your dashboard monitor to a live picture of your hitch and what's behind you. Plus, the Dynamic Hitch Assist feature helps you line up perfectly with guidelines on the display.

There's just as much technology up front, too. A forward-facing camera features a wide lens that gives you a close-up view of what's in your path. It's great for scoping out rocks and ditches when you're off-roading.

The 2019 Chevy Silverado also has a Rear View Camera system, but it can't back your trailer up for you. It also can't provide you with a close-up view of obstacles in your way when you're off-roading.
