Which 2018 truck is better: Ford or Chevy?

Trucks can be expensive, but when the Ford F-150 lets you save nearly $1,000 right from the start, it already starts to look more appealing, and we haven’t even started to talk about capability or efficiency yet.

If you are looking to save even more money, then you should consider the truck that has more efficiency. With the combination of EcoBoost efficiency and aluminum construction, the Ford F-150 easily comes out on top. With a 2 mpg difference in both the city and on the highway, you might be surprised at how fast those savings add up.

When you buy a truck, you should look at things like price, efficiency, and features, but what you really want to pay attention to is towing capability. The more it can tow, the more powerful it is and the stronger its construction. Here, the Ford F-150 simply leaves the Silverado in the dust with 700 extra pounds of towing capability.

Does the aluminum construction in the Ford F-150 concern you? Well it shouldn’t! Not only is the high-strength aluminum tough and capable, but the weight savings in some areas allows Ford to beef up other areas. Not only does this provide improved towing capability, but it can also give you a higher payload capacity as you can see with the 1,000-pound payload capacity difference between these two trucks.
