2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado
The big three make some amazing trucks, but does one truck stand tall above the rest of the pack? We might be able to shed some light on that question with our 2017 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 comparison. First let’s take a look at these two trucks from the outside. The Ford F-150 with its 2017 styling makes a bold statement. The F-150 shows that trucks don’t have to look stark and utilitarian. On the flipside of that is the Chevy Silverado 1500. A truck that is simple and boring in its execution. It’s straight lines and lack of curves would have been right at home on the road 20 years ago, but now it looks dated and bland.
If looks alone are enough to sell you, then the 2017 Ford F-150 is already the clear winner, and you should click the link below to see our inventory at Brandon Ford. If you want to see some more concrete facts and learn more about how these two trucks stack up, then simply keep reading.

Ford F-150 compared to Chevy Silverado 1500
For those still living in the past and thinking that steel is always better than aluminum, the Ford F-150 can handily prove you wrong. Just look at the sheer difference in payload capacity. Not only does the 2017 Ford F-150 destroy the Silverado in the payload department, but it’s no slouch when it comes to conventional towing either with 12,100 pounds of towing capacity.
This is all made possible because Ford uses its aluminum in smart places, while actually adding steel to places like the frame to make it stronger than ever before. This makes for a tough truck while lightening the load, hence the improvement in MPG values. On top of that, the 2017 F-150 can be equipped with a 10-speed transmission to make for a ride so smooth you’ll forget you’re in a tough and capable truck.
In the end, perhaps the most impressive takeaway of all is the difference in MSRP. Not only does everything point to a better truck with the F-150, but it can be had for cheaper than the Silverado. In other words, the 2017 Ford F-150 is not just a better price than the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500, but a better value too.
