The latest generation Ford F-150 offers all the performance you need along with a refined modern touch. It has some features such as the Pro Trailer Backup Assist system, which allows you to control the direction of your trailer with a simple dashboard mounted knob. There’s also the F-150’s impressively quick Sync 3 infotainment system, a quiet cabin, and all the available luxury amenities you could ask for. Aluminum body panels and an aluminum bed (rather than traditional steel) help make the 2017 F-150 the lightest truck in its class, too. Put it all together and you’ve got one of our favorite trucks on the road.

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 receives several new additions sprinkled throughout the lineup. New active grille shutters help save fuel by restricting air flow into the engine bay when not needed. The Teen Driver watchdog mode is standard across the lineup, and a rearview camera is standard on LT and above trims. (It is optional on Work Truck and LS models.) Low-speed automatic emergency braking has been added to the Enhanced Driver Alert safety tech package. The luxe High Country gets last year’s Premium package added as standard (including the Enhanced Driver Alert package).

You got the ford 3.5 v6 non-turbo hp and torque wrong its 282 hp and 253 torque check the ford website for proof.

LakeState says:

F 150 made without your tax dollars,

alecreg says:

just fyi. the chevy in the picture is a 2500

Kaiser Tuumalo says:

Ford is BOSS!!!

Allegronaut says:

The F-150 definitely has more technology than the Silverado, starting with the Aluminum body, Silverado is a dinosaur. The F-150’s are much faster than the Chevy’s as well because you can get better towing gear ratios, 3.55 & 3.73 for the Ford, and the max gear ratio available for towing on the Silverado is 3.42. If you think pickup trucks are expensive, just look at cars like the small Audi’s if you want to be fashionable, you’ll see that the trucks are better bargain for what you get.

Chad Glaser says:

The real sales figures for the Silverado/Sierra (the Silverado/Sierra twins must be combined since the F150 doesn’t have a model twin)= 2016: 796,556 units (kudos to Ford), 2009: 428,386 units (kudos to GM), 2004: 894,524 units (kudos to Ford, well both companies really, that’s a lot of trucks), and in 2001: 926,205. GMC had it’s best year in 2005, that makes for a total unit number of 935,468. Point here is that the numbers aren’t all that lopsided. If you like the GM twins you’ll buy whichever has the better looking grille to you in the year you are in the market for a new truck. And Ford knows they are manipulating data when they claim to have the undisputed best seller for 35 years, which is false if you combine the GM trucks (they are the same truck).

Samuel H Coleman Jr. says:

I have to go with the Chevrolet Silverado it has more technology than the F-150, when I say technology I mean stuff like on board WIFI which Ford does not give you in there vehicles at all and ON STAR.

Immortal_Gamer89 says:

Ford F-150 is a way better truck

HALWG51 says:

I agree with several of the comments below. Clean up the presentation, it’s much too jumbled.

big eazy says:

You definitely chose the better truck in the f-150, but I would like to see how the Ram 1500 stacks up against these two. Keep up the good work.

sayem 16.4 says:

Silverado 6.2 all the way

Tully3674 says:

Like the comparisons but PLEASE find a cleaner way for your presentation. Maybe PowerPoint or an Excel sheet that can be view via the camera. As it is now, the presentation hinders understanding the information.

Chanse Ormon says:

Silverado 5.3L V8 4WD Z71

Teighlour Swyftte says:

I just can’t trust Chevy. The though F-150 is a staple in the industry, you know it’ll be good. I wanna trust Chevy, but I just can’t get behind em.

nyinfamous2k2 says:

loving these truck videos youve been doing recently.

Pureservice says:

Professor Dave I like the videos but I just cant go out and spend this large amount of money on a pickup truck. It is just a shame that the average American cant buy a new pickup at an affordable price. Sure we could lease it but its a truck its going to get used as one. Just my opinion on it. I’ll just search the used market when I’m in the market for a truck. What ever happened to the poor mans Cadillac ???

Shad Mawri says:

I’d choose the Ram 1500 over both trucks

SlangJeezy says:

Test drove a Silverado 6.2 and a F150 3.5 ecoboost back to back. I drove home in the 17 F150 and I can start the truck from my phone or my key fob. How can a Chevy Silverado high Country cost near $60K and not come with push button start and complete keyless entry?

tentons123 says:

You talk too much, just get into it already.

mohammed alyaqout says:

f-150 Range?

carlos hernandez says:

It really feels like a class! No credits though

Akrane says:

silverado all the way. a truck you can drive after the warranty is up lol

priestof1 says:

f150 v8

Gary Hummel says:

I used to like & buy Chevys or GMC’s but “BIG NEGATIVE” on them now.
They are made in “MEXICO”  !!!!!!!!!!!!!
As Trumper would say “SAD”

Jeff Krus says:

I have a few things to point out about these stats. 1) the F-150 extended cab or “SuperCab” as they call it does still have 4 doors. Just the two rear doors open the opposite way and you have to open the front door first. A little bit of an inconvenience, but not enough to stop me from purchasing my supercab. 2) The main reason for the difference for difference in sales is probably due to GM also selling the GMC Sierra alongside the Silverado.

gthompson306 says:

I’ve owned and operated both….either will get you to 150k…Ford does it better….and yes, I’ve had odd issues with both.

donald tucker says:

the n/a 3.5 v6 from ford has according to ford “**Power ratings are 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque. When properly equipped.”

David McClure says:

I personally prefer GM/Chevy over Ford, though Ford has made leaps and bounds on their quality over the last 20 or so years. I would drive either truck, as they are both awesome, but my preference still stands with the Chevy.

Also, do not forget that the 10 speed Auto Transmission on the Ford was made in Partnership with GM/Chevy. Though currently I believe Chevy is only using it in the Camaro ZL1 (I could be wrong)

superwangwei3630 says:

Add the IIHS safety rating too.

Rene Rios says:

Chevy Silverado. Because I’m loyal and like big V8’s like the 5.3 and 6.2 Ford does make a good case but I personally don’t like it.

1250cc says:

at 14:40 aluminum frame???? I know you ment to say body….

Zraupp10 says:

Dodge/RAM ?
