The 2013 Ford Super Duty vs. The 2013 Chevrolet Silverado HD
These days, truck shoppers have no lack of options, with plenty of choices on the market that look great, drive even better, and have the capabilities to get the job done. However, sometimes a truck comes along that’s undeniably better than the rest. For example, take the 2013 Ford F-Super Duty, now available at Terry’s Ford in Peotone. We compared Ford’s toughest truck to its competition, the 2013 Chevrolet Silverado HD, and the Super Duty easily came out on top.
Here are the three biggest reasons why we think you’ll prefer the Ford F-Super Duty:
- Powertrain: When you drive a 2013 Ford F-Super Duty with standard equipment, you’ll enjoy all that the 6.2L SOHC V8 engine has to offer, including 385 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. While the Silverado also employs a V8 engine, its output isn’t nearly as impressive. The Silverado’s 6L engine provides only 360 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque, so drivers looking for maximum speed and power in their engine will want to look to the Ford truck instead.
- Safety: The Ford F-Super Duty beat the Silverado HD in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s safety rankings, earning a 4-star front crash test rating and a 5-star side impact safety rating. The Silverado only earned 3-star and 4-star ratings in these respective categories, meaning that Ford is the clear choice for drivers who value personal safety above all else. In addition to its superior safety rankings, the F-Super Duty also includes extra safety features that you won’t find in the Silverado, such as standard head airbags and “smart” airbags that choose how fast they deploy depending on passenger size and weight.
- Towing and Hauling: When you buy a pickup, you want to know that you’re getting the best towing and hauling capacity for your dollar. And with a 12,100 pound minimum standard towing capacity that’s 3,000 pounds higher than the Silverado’s 9,100 capacity, the F-Super Duty is the superior option. It also offers higher standard and optional payload capacities than the Silverado HD at every level, whether you opt for a Regular Cab 250 or an Extended Cab with 4-wheel drive.
