2019 Ford F-150 vs. Its Competition

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Ford F-150 is perennially in a dogfight with the GMC Sierra 1500/Chevy Silverado for buyers’ hearts and wallets.

While fleet buyers may be somewhat brand-agnostic, retail buyers may not be swayed by the F-150’s aluminum construction and turbo powertrains that deliver unreliable mileage gains.

The new GM trucks coming this year may change the equation.

Certainly the new Ram 1500 has; it’s even more refined than before, and will offer mild-hybrid and diesel powerplants to complement its revamped chassis.

The Toyota and Nissan trucks are second-tier in this class, but both offer strong V-8s; Toyota sells durability, while Nissan sells a quasi-heavy-duty turbodiesel truck that may sway buyers.

Quick Specs
6.5
The 2019 Ford F-150 hangs on to its best-selling truck title with a bevy of powertrains, thousands of build possibilities, and a seemingly endless reserve of truck bona fides.
5.6
The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado is more refined and useful for cargo, though it isn’t as polished inside as the new Ram 1500.
5.6
The 2019 GMC Sierra steers out of the max-tow race; instead, it puts its marker down on smart and easy-to-use technology.
4.5
The 2019 Nissan Titan is out of step with far more advanced rivals that don’t cost much more.
5.0
The 2019 Toyota Tundra has its virtues, but it’s a dated pickup truck ripe for redesign.
5.8
The 2019 Ram 1500 sets the bar high for full-size pickup trucks.
