The 2014 Ford F-150 vs. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Finding a light-duty pickup truck with serious capabilities near Bradley is a breeze here at Terry’s Ford of Peotone! To help our customers decide which model is right for them, we’ve compared two of the most popular trucks on the market. The 2014 Ford F-150 and the 2014 Chevy Silverado are both capable, rugged trucks, but the new Ford F-150 delivers more power, offers higher payload capacities, and is equipped with more conveniences. Take a look!

  • Engine Options: The standard 3.7L DOHC V6 engine under the hood of the 2014 Ford F-150 puts out 302 hp, and the available 6.2L SOHC V8 engine is capable of 411 hp. The 2014 Chevy Silverado’s engines can’t match up, as the standard 4.3L V6 engine only received a 285 hp rating and the available 5.3L V8 engine is only capable of 355 hp.
  • Hauling Power: The available payload capacities of the 2014 Ford F-150 are significantly higher than the capacities of the 2014 Chevy Silverado. When properly equipped, the Regular Cab F-150 can carry 3,120 lbs. of cargo with ease. The equivalent Chevy Silverado model can only carry a maximum of 2,108 lbs. when properly equipped, which means you may have to make multiple trips.
  • Cargo Versatility: The 2014 Ford F-150 has a standard tailgate assist feature, which slowly lowers the tailgate when it’s opened in order to prevent it from falling with a crash and causing potential harm. It also allows drivers to open and close the tailgate with one hand in order to make loading and unloading easier. The 2014 Chevy Silverado only offers a tailgate assist feature as an option, so it will cost you extra.
  • Interior Comfort: For rear occupants of the 2014 Ford F-150, available heated rear seats keep passengers warm during frigid winter months. The 2014 Chevy Silverado does not offer heated rear seats.
