Ford F-150 VS Chevy Silverado 1500


See Why the Ford F-150 is the Best Bet for a Midsized Pickup Truck

When you're looking at midsized pickup trucks, you're going to see plenty of options. Obviously we here at our Windber, PA Ford dealership serving Johnstown, Altoona, Ebensburg and Bedford have our preferred choice in our favorite brand's iconic flagship truck, but we understand why you'll want to carefully consider all your options. With that thought in mind, we're showing why the new 2017 Ford F-150 is going to prove to be your best option.

Now, even among a wide selection of F-Series trucks of varying sizes and capabilities, the F-150 can come in several different setups. You have three cab configurations and two bed sizes to choose from, you can opt for 2WD or 4WD, and there are several engine options to consider as well. The amount of options available for your new truck here are endless, making the F-150 already a great choice.

To give you an idea about how it stacks up to the competition, we're comparing the new F-150 to another popular midsized pickup, the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500. This quick comparison shows the base-level, regular cab, 6 1/2-foot bed trucks, so keep in mind that changing things up for either will change the bottom line price.
