2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. 2021 Ford F-150: Tow Rating and Packages 

If you want the best towing capabilities possible on these trucks, choose the EcoBoost® V6 on the F-150 for 13,100 pounds of max towing and the EcoTec3 on the Silverado for 13,300 pounds* of towing. The small advantage the Silverado has for towing ratings is complemented by equipment you can get with the help of a Roslyn-area parts center:

  • Chevy Silverado Standard Trailering Package: This comes with a hitch platform, an automatic locking rear differential, a 2-inch receiver, a 4-pin connector, a 7-wire harness with a 7-way sealed connector. That’s a lot of useful standard equipment! 
  • Chevy Silverado Max Trailering Package: This available package upgrades your towing performance with shock tuning, rear springs, and other features.
  • Chevy Silverado Available Towing Mirrors: These instrumental pieces of equipment are specially designed for you to see your trailer and its surroundings. 

2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. 2021 Ford F-150: Interior Dimensions

Power is necessary, but so is comfort. The Chevy Silverado stands out for having more legroom and more headroom than its peer made by Ford.

Ford F-150 Driver Dimensions

  • Front Legroom: 43.9 inches
  • Front Headroom: 40.8 inches
  • Front Hip Room: 62.5 inches
  • Front Shoulder Room: 66.7 inches 

Chevy Silverado Driver Dimensions

  • Front Legroom: 44.5 inches
  • Front Headroom: 43.1 inches

In addition to comfort, there’s one more interior feature worth mentioning on the Silverado: Teen Driver Technology.

It’s a Chevy-exclusive feature you’ll find incredibly useful.
