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.
