2021 Ford F-150 vs. 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 | Havelock, NC

Whether you are shopping for your first truck or your 10th, you need something powerful with a strong legacy behind it. No pickup has a more respected history than America's best-selling model, the Ford F-Series. That's why it's no surprise that the redesigned 2021 Ford F-150 thoroughly outpaces competitors like the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500.

Engine Performance

If you are looking for superior power from your truck's powertrain, look no further than the F-150's six-engine lineup. This includes a new 3.5-liter PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 that delivers 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque. The non-hybrid 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 offers 500 lb-ft of torque. The most power you can get from the Silverado 1500 is 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and it doesn't offer a hybrid option at all. 

Towing & Payload

With the hybrid engine, the F-150 can tow up to 12,700 pounds and has a maximum payload rating of 2,120 pounds. For the most towing power, choose the available 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6, which offers a best-in-class tow rating of 14,000 pounds. If you are looking for best-in-class payload, the available 5.0-liter V8 can handle up to 3,325 pounds. The Silverado 1500 falls short once again, with a max towing capacity of just 13,300 pounds.


When it comes to keeping you protected on the roads around Havelock, North Carolina, the F-150 is ready. It comes standard with advanced driver safety aids, including Forward Collision Mitigation and Lane Departure Warning. To get features like this on the Silverado 1500, you'll be forced to shell out for a more expensive trim level.
