2019 Ford F-150 vs 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
If you’re a truck lover, this should be your favorite time of the year, because this is the time of year when the new pickup truck lineups start hitting lots like ours here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA. This is exciting in and of itself, but it’s even more exciting because this also marks the next round of the Ford F-150 versus Chevy Silverado 1500 rivalry.
And what a rivalry it’s been – or, at least, what a rivalry it used to be. Ford has always come out on top when comparing its full-size pickup truck lineup to Chevy’s full-size pickup truck lineup, but the competition used to be a lot closer. Lately, it seems Ford just keeps pulling further and further away from Chevy, and this year is no different – as you’ll see in this 2019 Ford F-150 versus 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 model comparison.
