Chevy Trucks vs. Ford Trucks

Truck drivers know that when it comes to shopping for trucks, the first question one may ask is, “Ford or Chevy?” Both brands have manufactured countless icons over the years, and it can be hard to decide which brand to choose from when they both offer so much. Buyers looking for a truck in Elgin should know the facts before they decide to invest in a new truck. That’s why we’ve decided to compare Ford vs. Chevy to see which brand comes out on top.

2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. Ford F-150

These full-sized workhorses are standard equipment on most job sites and, while F-150 drivers surely enjoy their trucks, there can be little doubt that when it comes to power, performance, and towing capacity, the Chevy Silverado 1500 has a clear edge over its competition.
