2022 Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado

Ford F-150

If you’re on the hunt for a powerful pickup truck that’s as good for the worksite as it is for the weekend, you’re in the right place. Both the 2022 Ford F-150 and the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado offer an impressive combination of performance, capability, and advanced safety.

So, how will shoppers in Shreveport, Bossier City, and Stonewall, Louisiana, choose between them? We at Rountree Ford hope to help you do that with this detailed comparison. On this page, you’ll see how these models stack up against each other in all the ways you care about.

First, let’s peek under the hoods of these models to see what makes them move!

F-150 vs Silverado: Performance Specs

Ford F-150 The 2022 Ford F-150 gives you six different powertrain options to choose from. Standardly, you’ll have a 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine that generates a respectable 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. Swap this engine out for any of the F-150’s available high-performance engines, which work alongside a 10-speed automatic transmission.

One such engine is the optional 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine, which makes 400 horsepower and 500- lb-ft of torque. The high-output version of this V6 engine ramps up power even more to an insane 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque.

The Silverado offers five powerful engine options and an 8-speed or 10-speed automatic transmission. However, you’ll find that the engines of the Silverado don’t quite live up to their potential like they do in the F-150. This model’s available 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine, for example, only makes 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

F-150 vs Silverado: Towing & Hauling

With so much power coming from its high-performance engines, it’s no surprise that the 2022 Ford F-150 and the 2022 Chevy Silverado can move some serious trailer weight. When properly equipped, both models can move more than 13,000 pounds of trailer weight.

With this kind of capability, you’ll be able to tow all kinds gear, such as:

  • All but the biggest campers for weekends in the woods or at the lake with the family
  • Large fishing boats, where you can create lasting memories teaching the kids how to fish
  • Multi-horse trailers that can move your animals to their next big show without a problem
  • Utility trailers strapped with several ATVs for off-roading adventures
  • Cargo trailer packed full of furniture and boxes for your next move

However, the F-150 can tow more with a maximum capability of 14,000 pounds. Meanwhile, the Silverado maxes out at 13,300 pounds. The F-150 doesn’t stop there, though. With the available 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine and its best-in-class payload capabilities, this model can also handle quite a bit of weight in its bed—3,325 pounds to be exact. The Silverado tops out at 2,270 pounds.

Plus, the F-150 has the tech to make every job as streamlined as possible, starting with an optional Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. This feature gives you the capability to steer your trailer with an in-cabin knob making it easier than ever to move in reverse with the trailer.

Unfortunately, the Silverado is without comparable towing tech, so you’ll want to block out extra time to maneuver the trailer. Additionally, you won’t be able to handle quite as much weight in the bed of the truck with its lackluster payload capacity.

F-150 vs Silverado: In-Cabin Comfort

Ford F-150 Inside both the 2022 Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado, you’ll find a variety of helpful convenience features that will keep you safely connected throughout your travels. In either model, you’ll be able to take advantage of a large touchscreen infotainment system with turn-by-turn navigation, Bluetooth® wireless connectivity, and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Both models also offer built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspots that help you transform the cabin of your pickup into a mobile workspace or somewhere comfortable for your passengers to stream and surf to their hearts’ content. With the F-150, you’ll be able to connect up to 10 devices simultaneously to this hotspot. The Silverado can’t handle quite that many at once, and it’s also only an available feature. Meanwhile, in the F-150, it comes standard.

As for passenger space, you’ll get more than 43 inches of front-row legroom in both cabins. This makes it easy to cart the whole work crew or the family around with ease. Ramp up comfort in either model even more with optional leather seating surfaces, automatic climate control systems, and heated steering wheel and seats.

F-150 vs Silverado: Active Safety Systems

Whether you’re taking on a big job at the worksite or heading out on a weekend adventure with the family, safety is a priority. The 2022 Ford F-150 and the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado deliver when it comes to standard safety with traction control, brake assist, rear view cameras, and collision mitigation systems in their standard safety lineups.

However, the F-150 kicks it up one more notch with an array of other active safety features you can choose from. Opt for the F-150’s available 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display to keep an eye on your vehicle’s surroundings at all times. You can also opt for:

  • Available Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go: monitors your surroundings on the road while you’re using cruise control and changes your speed to keep you at a safe following distance from the vehicle in front of you.
  • Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow Coverage: acts like a second set of eyes on the road to help you keep track of what’s in the blind spots of your vehicle as well as your trailer.
  • Standard Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking: keeps tabs on what’s in front of your vehicle, including vehicles and pedestrians. It can warn you of a potential collision before automatically applying the brakes to potentially help you prevent or mitigate an accident.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to live without some of these features in the Silverado since this model doesn’t offer a comprehensive lineup of features like the F-150 does.

2022 Ford F-150 vs Silverado: Which One?

While the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado offers a few great features, the 2022 Ford F-150 comes out on top in every way. With its class-leading capabilities, top-of-the-line cabin, and an array of state-of-the-art features, the F-150 is the perfect pick for DIYers, worksite-to-weekenders, and explorers alike.
