Fuel Economy

The Chevy Silverado’s direct fuel injection provides better fuel economy and keeps the intake much cleaner than cars with sequential MPI (multi-point injection) like the F-150. When it comes down to fuel economy, it may seem that the 1 city/2 highway mile-per-gallon difference between the Chevy Silverado and the F-150 is miniscule. But if you drive an average of 20,000 miles per year, the Chevy Silverado can save you $220 in costs for gas annually! The Silverado can also hold 3 more gallons of gas than the F-150, so you won’t have to fill up as often as you would with a Ford!

 

Vehicle Safety Rating

What difference does one star make? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 5-star rating system is designed to inform drivers of vehicle safety in three primary categories: a Front Crash Test, a Side Crash Test, and a Rollover probability rating. Because the Overall Vehicle Safety Score combines the three scores in these categories, one star can make a huge difference.

…And there is a huge difference in safety between the 2017 Chevy Silverado and the Ford F-150. While both trucks were awarded 5-Stars in their Side Crash Tests, the Chevy Silverado was also awarded 5-Stars in its Front Crash Test and 4-Stars in its Rollover Probability Test, surpassing the F-150 by one star in both categories.

The 2017 Chevy Silverado also features one other safety technologies not offered in the Ford F-150. Both the Silverado and F‑150 SuperCrew have child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors. The Silverado, however, has power child safety locks, allowing the driver to activate and deactivate them from the driver’s seat and to know when they’re engaged. The F‑150’s child locks have to be individually engaged at each rear door with a manual switch. The driver can’t know the status of the locks without opening the doors and checking them.

Both the Silverado and the F‑150 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, available four-wheel drive, collision warning systems, lane departure warning systems and rearview cameras.

 

Warranty Coverage

Both the Chevy Silverado and the Ford F-150 feature 3-year/36,000-mile Bumper-to-Bumper Limited warranties as well as 5-year/60,000-mile PowerTrain Limited warranties. However, the 2017 Chevy Silverado features an additional 2-year/24,000-mile Scheduled Maintenance warranty that is not offered by Ford or by any of its competitors. When you’re looking to buy a car, reliability is crucial, and Chevy’s excellent warranty coverage goes above and beyond to ensure its reliability and your satisfaction!

 

Summary

To sum it all up, the 2017 Chevy Silverado surpasses the Ford F-150 in all of the above respects. Its exceptional 5-Star Overall Vehicle Safety Score, its unmatched fuel-economy for trucks of its class, and its fantastic Warranty Coverage makes the Chevy Silverado the smarter choice for car buyers.
