Ford vs. Chevy. It's a long-fought battle between the two for the hearts and minds of American drivers, with each claiming supremacy over the other whenever possible. We know that our Russell KS customers are always looking for a pickup that's capable of handling everything their busy days entail, so we thought it might be useful to compare our Ford F-150 to its Chevrolet rival, the Silverado 1500. Read on to learn how things went.

When you're heading from Larned to Ellsworth KS, you want to be able to trust your engine to get the job done. Ford provides you with more options to power your travels, with six available engines on hand; the Silverado limits you to three choices. Whether you're looking at the standard engines or the top of the line powerplants, your F-150 is going to deliver more horsepower and pound-feet of torque than the comparable Silverado engines muster.

That performance difference shows up when you're looking to haul a heavy load, as the Ford F-150 is rated to tow up to 13,200 pounds; the Silverado tops out at 12,200 pounds.

Since we spend more time than ever in our trucks, it's nice to know that the Ford F-150 is loaded with more standard features and conveniences than the Chevy Silverado 1500. These range from speed-sensitive windshield wipers to safety features that protect you and your family, making your road travels more secure.

Contact us to speak with one of our team members and arrange for a convenient time to stop by our Great Bend location and take the Ford F-150 out for a spin. We're here and ready to help in any way that we can!
