Performance

If you want a pickup that packs the most power, your best bet is the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, no matter which powertrain you choose:

  • 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500: The introductory engine on the Silverado 1500 is a 4.3L V6 that makes 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque when matched to a six-speed automatic transmission and either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Next up is a 5.3L V8 that generates 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. A 6.2L V8 is also available, good for a whopping 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque.

  • 2015 Ford F150: Standard power on the Ford F-150 comes from a smaller 3.5L V6 that puts out an uninspired 283 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. This is followed by a 2.7L V6 that churns out 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque. Even the 5.0L V8 doesn’t achieve the performance level of that on the strongest Chevrolet Silverado 1500 engine, getting just 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque.

Advanced Features

The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 beats the 2015 Ford F-150 with two key features. The first, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, converts the Silverado 1500 into a Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing up to seven devices to connect to the Internet while on the go. The Ford F-150, meanwhile, doesn’t offer Internet connectivity. Also of note is the Silverado 1500’s auto-locking differential, which isn’t offered on the Ford F-150.

Warranty Coverage

Warranty coverage is crucial when purchasing a pickup, particularly if you plan to use it for work or hefty loads. In this regard, the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 wins outright. It provides a five-year / 100,000-mile powertrain/drivetrain limited warranty, as compared to the 2015 Ford F-150’s, which covers you for 60,000 miles or five years. What’s more, on the Silverado 1500, you’re guaranteed roadside assistance for 100,000 miles or five years, while the F-150 will only have you covered on the road for 60,000 miles. The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, then, is sure to keep you covered longer.
