The cutting-edge aluminum-alloy construction of the 2015 Ford F-150 has stunned Chicago and Kankakee customers with its increased capability and efficiency ratings. The dramatic improvement effected by the change is clear to anyone who takes a test drive at Terry’s Ford of Peotone, but becomes shocking when the new F-150 is considered in relation to a possible competitor like the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado.
Kankakee, IL drivers will have five great trim levels to choose from with the 2015 Ford F-150:
Chevrolet models have a higher starting price, with a WT trim going for a minimum of $26,105 in models with a regular cab and standard box. This entry-level vehicle comes with power locks and cruise control, but nothing to rival the state-of-the-art upgrades in the 2015 F-150.
The top-end trim of the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado will cost Chicago drivers at least $48,770 with front-wheel drive, more than the Platinum F-150. Perforated leather seats – with 12-way power adjustment for the driver – make it a nice vehicle to travel in, but that’s still a high price to pay for a truck that was just made obsolete by the new F-150.
The 2015 Ford F-150 comes with four engine options, each one working with the lightweight build to create unbelievable mileage ratings, with a drop of 20% since last year:
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers Kankakee drivers three engines. The 4.3L V6 produces 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, and receives mileage ratings of 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway with two-wheel drive. The 5.3L V8 achieves only 285 hp with 305 lb-ft of torque, and gets 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway with two-wheel drive. Finally, the 6.2L V8 offers 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque to go with 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway when equipped with two-wheel drive.
Hauling its cumbersome frame around means that the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado lags behind the 2015 Ford F-150 in both power and efficiency, making the Ford an undeniable frontrunner.
Both vehicles enjoy a number of innovative features to make sure work gets done quickly and effectively. However, the 2015 Ford F-150 has been equipped with a number of class-exclusive features, including:
The high-strength construction of the 2015 Ford F-150 doesn’t just improve efficiency and capability — it also makes the vehicle astoundingly resilient to damage. In fact, this is military-grade material, so your family enjoys the best protection possible, even in the event of a collision.
The Silverado might once have competed with the F-150, but the innovative engineering of the 2015 Ford F-150 has placed it far above the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado. Drivers around Chicago and Kankakee, IL should contact Terry’s Ford of Peotone without delay for more information.
