2019 Ford F-150 vs. 2019 Chevy Silverado

  • The new Ford F-150 distinguishes itself from Chevy Silverado competition when considering how peak performance translates. This new Ford F-Series model generates a class-leading 13,200 pounds tow rating, 1,000 pounds more than its Chevrolet opposition. A class-leading payload rating of 3,270 pounds makes this new Ford pickup truck the preferable hauling option for a rugged day on the move
  • With the only high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body design in its class, the new Ford F-150 can hold up when challenged in a manner that the Chevy Silverado doesn't have an answer for
  • Extensive driver-assist settings and active safety technology separates the peace of mind you can expect inside the new Ford F-150. Standard brake assist and class-exclusive available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, features not available for the Chevy Silverado, highlight this difference in reassurance behind the wheel
  • While the new F-150 and Chevy Silverado may have similar fuel efficiency estimates across comparable trims, the available 3.0-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine of this new Ford F-Series model features class-leading EPA-estimated 30 miles per gallon highway fuel estimates for superior value in your daily commuting commitments
  • When it comes to off-roading experiences, the new Ford F-150 proves better equipped to explore confidently. The explosive Raptor trim features class-exclusive trail design upfits that include FOX live valve monotube shocks, along with a high output turbocharged EcoBoost® engine that generates a potent 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet. These production metrics top the 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of the Silverado's top V8 powertrain

2019 Ford F-150 vs. 2019 Ram 1500

  • With a more affordable base trim level, the superior value presented in the 2019 Ford F-150 becomes abundantly clear when comparing this new Ford model's capabilities and class-exclusive features with Ram 1500 competition
  • Featuring higher overall IIHS safety crash test ratings than the competing Ram full-size pickup, the new Ford F-150 incorporates a reassuring outlook into its class-exclusive high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy frame. And while both trucks feature standard rearview cameras, this new Ford F-Series model takes additional steps to make future trips more secure through driver-assist features that include automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection
  • With three bed options and an eight-foot maximum bed length arrangement - compared to just two truck beds and a six-foot, four-inch maximum bed length - the new Ford F-150 is more configurable and customizable to suit your personal tastes and specific work-day requirements
  • While the Hemi V8 engine of the Ram 1500 can produce an impressive 395 horsepower, the F-150 Raptor generates additional burst for the top-flight performance you seek in a new full-size pickup truck. This off-road variant's 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine generates 450 horsepower
  • A 13,200-pound to 12,750-pound maximum towing edge, combined with a class-exclusive payload capacity of 3,270 pounds, demonstrate just how dynamic experiences seated inside of the new 2019 Ford F-150 can be
  • Class-exclusive features of the Ford F-150 not offered anywhere in the Ram 1500 trim roster include Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, deployable box side steps, FOX live valve monotube shocks and more

2019 Ford F-150 vs. 2019 Toyota Tacoma

  • Across both powertrain lineups, the new Ford F-150 dominates its Toyota competition. Standard 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet engine production best the base 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet output of the Tacoma. Maximum 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet easily exceed the 268 horsepower and 275 pound-feet delivered by the competing midsize pickup
  • A large gap in engine production - with the F-150 offering six different engines compared to two engine options - translates to towing capabilities. Standard 7,700 pounds towing of the F-150 tops the 6,800 pounds maximum tow rating of the Tacoma comfortably. And with a maximum 13,200 pounds tow capacity, this new Ford F-Series model is the proven work solution of this duo
  • With three bed options to just two bed options, the new Ford F-150 offers a longer bed length selection at eight feet to just six feet maximum of the Toyota truck
  • SYNC® 3 infotainment, a staple of the Ford F-150 technology experience, incorporates Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility. These integrated mobile app systems aren't offered with the competing Entune infotainment system that the Tacoma incorporates
  • Driver-assist features offered by the F-150 but not the Tacoma include lane-keeping assist, park assist, Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ and a trailer brake controller
  • The maximum 1,620 pounds payload capacity of the new Tacoma fails to match the hauling prowess provided by the F-150, ranking head of class with 3,270 pounds for loading support
