2016 Ford F-150 Vs. 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Auburn-Alabama, Green Bay-Chicago, Coke-Pepsi, Hatfields-McCoys. These are some history's greatest rivalries, and in the automotive world nothing surpasses F-150 versus Silverado. It's actually been a one-sided fight as the Ford F-150 has been America's best-selling pickup truck for 39 consecutive years, and it's our pick as well. But that doesn't mean the Chevrolet Silverado isn't competitive.

The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado takes a traditional truck path but counters that with a comfortable, refined interior and a mother lode of technology. The 2016 Ford F-150, fresh off a transformation that made it leaner yet much-improved in most ways, gets new Sync 3 infotainment and trailer-backup wizardry.
