Compare the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in Jasper

Here at Ruxer Ford, we're a Ford dealership which means we're going to tout the vehicles here in our showroom. But, we also value comparing vehicles side by side, and that means doing some of the work ourselves. On the roads of Jasper, you want a pickup truck that you can count on to get the job done, and we believe that's the Ford F-150. But, we also do comparisons and road testing of competitors too. We took the new F-150 and the Chevy Silverado 1500 on a road test through Jasper, and here's what we think.

Better Power on the F-150

The F-150 has five different engine options, which includes four V6 engines, three of which are EcoBoost® engines, and a powerful V8 engine. The configuration we drove is popular among drivers in Jasper and offered more power than the Silverado could. Across the board, you'll find that's the case as Ford provides more powerful engines. When you need a truck that you can count on to give you the right level of performance, you're going to want to turn to the F-150.

Tow and Haul More with the F-150

The F-150 offers best-in-class towing and payload, with bigger numbers across the board than the Silverado. We loaded up both truck beds with supplies, and towed a load behind us and the F-150 was more responsive to giving us the ideal driving we need over the Silverado. That's important around Jasper, especially for many of us working the land.

Safety and Technology Available on Both

When it comes to technology, we'll admit, the Silverado 1500 has similar tech as the F-150, and both do a good job of keeping you connected on the go. Whether it's smartphone integration or even offering onboard Wi-Fi, it's all available. But, the F-150 offers features like Pro Trailer Backup Assist which you can use to properly tow your load in reverse and send it in the direction you'd like it to go all while using a knob inside the vehicle.

Final Verdict

If you're looking for multiple truck options and configurations with different power under the hood, and class-leading capabilities, it's a no-brainer. The Ford F-150 is the right truck, especially when compared against the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. To learn more, come by and see us here at Ruxer Ford and we'd be happy to help you today.
