2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The redesigned 2014 Silverado 1500 screams tougher than tough with its sharp lines, taller hood, boxy styling and front grille that is massive and features a great big bow tie right in the center. Inside, the cabin is luxurious and full of refinements. GM has certainly come a long way from its previous reputation of low quality interiors; the inside of the 2014 Silverado is just as good, if not even better than the competition. There is an optional Chevy MyLink system and navigation. The Silverado 1500 packs less weight than the F-150. The integrated corner bumper step with built in handle makes climbing into the bed a breeze and to me seems like a much more durable option than the F-150′s fold out step. While not quite as customizable as the F-150, the Silverado 1500 does offer four different trim levels: WT, LT, LZ and High Country. Sitting low to the ground, this truck offers the best in class handling and many say it drives like a big sedan.

2014 Ford F150

The Tonka truck styling of the 2014 F-150 makes this a very masculine looking truck as well. While this truck looks as tough as nails, there is a noticeable shaking and jittery of materials when the door and hood close giving a negative impression of its quality. The F-150 does offer faster acceleration than the Silverado, while fuel economy is slightly worse. The back seat is spacious and the cabin is very comfortable. There is an optional MyFord Touch system and navigation, but it is noted that the MyFord Touch system is a little more complicated than the Chevy MyLink system. The dashboard layout does seem more simple and outdated compared to the Silverado. There is a fold out tailgate step, but it’s not as practical as Chevy’s innovative built in corner step. However, you can buy a base model F-150 around $5000 cheaper than a base model Silverado. The F-150 is also one of the most customizable vehicles you can buy with nine different trim levels: XL, STX, XLT, FX2/FX4, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited and SVT Raptor. Driving down the road, the F-150 offers a much bumpier ride than the Silverado.

And The Winner Is…

I am going to call the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado the winner in this competition, hands down. If you ask me, the 2014 Silverado is one of the best available trucks on the road currently. On the other hand, don’t underestimate the F-150. For 2012, the Ford F-series pickups were the most popular selling vehicles in Canada. While both cars have masculine styling, the Silverado’s massive grille and squared off wheel wells put the look over-the-top.
There is no other truck on the market, not even the F-150 that offers as smooth of a ride with such excellent handling as the 2014 Silverado 1500. Available electronics are pretty competitive in both trucks, but the Chevy MyLink system has been reported as being much more user-friendly in comparison to the MyFord Touch system. On the other hand, you can snag an F-150 at a more affordable price than the Silverado 1500, but in my opinion, you pay for what you get. In the highly competitive truck industry, for many it will boil down to if you are a Ford guy or a Chevy guy.
