2016 Ford F-150 vs 2016 Chevy Silverado
People take their pickup trucks very seriously here in America. The truck segment is by far one of the most popular and competitive categories within the automotive industry. However, there has only been one vehicle dominating the segment for the last three decades, and that is the Ford F-150. Ford brings a level of innovation that is simply unmatched by the competition. They have a forward-thinking attitude when it comes to trucks, and they never rest on their laurels. The new 2016 Ford F-150 is a great example of this. Most people expected the new 2016 Ford F-150 to be nothing more than a carryover from the recently redesigned 2015 Ford F-150. However, that is simply not the case. Ford has implemented big changes to the F-150 for the new model year, and these changes are generating a lot of customer excitement.
As we stated earlier, there is a lot of competition in the pickup truck segment. One of the vehicles that challenges the F-150 for market share each and every year is the Chevy Silverado. Therefore, we have decided to match up the 2016 Ford F-150 vs 2016 Chevy Silverado in order to show some of the many ways that the 2016 Ford F-150 is superior to the competition.
2016 Ford F-150: Technologically Advanced
In our opinion, the biggest difference between the 2016 Ford F-150 and 2016 Chevy Silverado is the body. Last year Ford made the transition to a fully aluminum body last year on the Ford F-150. This military-grade aluminum body was 700 pounds lighter than a steel body, and also stronger. On the other hand, the 2016 Chevy Silverado is still using an outdated steel body. There have been rumors that Chevy is planning on switching over to an aluminum body within the next several years. However, as of right now they are still using steel. Therefore, the F-150 has a superior body right now.
Another area that the 2016 Ford F-150 is superior to the 2016 Chevy Silverado is with its available technology. Ford has released some all new features that make this by far the most technologically advanced pickup truck to ever hit the market. By far the most notable feature is the new Pro Trailer Backup Assist function that makes backing up any trailer a quick, easy and painless process. The 2016 Chevy Silverado has some great technology as well, but it is nothing in comparison to the new 2016 Ford F-150.
