2018 Ford F-150 vs 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500
Considering the Ford F-150 lineup is best-in-class in pretty much every important category each and every model year, it’s no surprise that it’s been America’s favorite truck for over 40 years. It’s also, then, no surprise that other automotive companies are going all out to try to build a truck that can top the Ford F-150. That includes Chevrolet and their all-new 2019 Silverado 1500.
We don’t know anything about the 2019 F-150 lineup at this time, other than the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor is going to be an absolute beast off-road, so we’ll have to instead compare the 2018 Ford F-150 lineup to the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 lineup to see how Chevrolet is doing in trying to catch up to the impressive performance, efficiency and capability of the F-150. As you’ll quickly learn as you read on, things are not looking good for Chevy’s new flagship truck.

How Does the All-New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Lineup Stack Up Against the 2018 Ford F-150 Lineup at Brandon Ford in Tampa FL?
The easy answer to this question – not too well at all. That’s because, even though one is a current model year truck and the other is a next generation truck, the 2018 Ford F-150 lineup still bests the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 lineup in many important categories.
As shown in our table above, both truck lineups let you choose from six engine options – and each truck lineup offers a diesel engine option as part of those six. You can also see in the table that the standard power ratings of each truck lineup are pretty similar, though the 2018 F-150 offers more standard horsepower and the 2019 Silverado 1500 offers more standard torque. The max power ratings for each lineup aren’t so similar, however, with the 2018 Ford F-150 lineup offering far more max horsepower and torque than the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 lineup. And since Ford upgrades the F-150 lineup every year, it’s a good bet the 2019 F-150 lineup widens that power gap even more.
The 2018 Ford F-150 lineup provides best-in-class towing and payload ratings, and it’s a good bet the 2019 F-150 lineup will do the same. Chevy hasn’t said how much the 2019 Silverado 1500 lineup can tow and haul, but we’re guessing it’s not as much as the 2018 F-150 can tow and haul. And it certainly won’t be as much as the 2019 F-150 lineup can tow and haul.
