2024 Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Silverado 1500 | Spirit Lake, IA

You will find a variety of great trucks for sale here at Motor Inn of Spirit Lake, including the 2024 Ford F-150 and the 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. These two best-selling rival trucks dominate the segment and offer differing advantages for drivers in Dickinson County. To help you choose between them, here is a list of the biggest 2024 Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Silverado 1500 differences.

Better value for basic models: Ford F-150

The 2024 Ford F-150 carries a starting MSRP for its base XL model that is approximately $3,000 cheaper than a bare-bones 2024 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 WT.[1] That price difference is also present between other comparable trims like the F-150 XLT vs. Silverado Custom. Those few thousand dollars can make a big difference for shoppers in Spirit Lake who are on a budget.

More affordable luxury: Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Want to outfit your pickup in extravagance? You’ll get a lot more bang for your buck on higher trim levels of the Silverado 1500. Its lavish High Country model and performance ZR2 model are significantly more affordable than the comparable Ford F-150 Limited, Raptor, and Raptor R trims — by $15,000-$30,000![1]

On these higher trims, the Silverado 1500 comes with some better features than a loaded F-150 does. For example, the 13.4-inch diagonal Premium Infotainment System screen on the Silverado LT and above is bigger than the largest touch screen available on the F-150.

Better performance and fuel economy: Ford F-150

The 2024 F-150 offers better engines on all fronts and more options than the Silverado offers. The F-150 can tow and haul a few hundred pounds more than the strongest Silverado 1500 can.

The standard 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 produces 325 hp and 400 lb-ft torque, which outdoes the standard TurboMax™ 2.7-liter four-cylinder on the Silverado 1500. The Ford truck’s supercharged V8 is a real beast, mustering 700 hp and 640 lb-ft of torque. For superior fuel economy, the hybrid V6 for the F-150 averages an impressive 23 mpg combined with four-wheel drive.[2]

The only notable advantage the Silverado 1500 has on this front is its Duramax Turbo-Diesel, as Ford doesn’t offer a diesel engine for the F-150.

Roomier in the cab and bed: Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Plan on using your pickup truck as a family vehicle in Spirit Lake? The Silverado has a roomier four-door cab with best-in-class front-row legroom and headroom, plus a spacious back seat for adults. The Silverado Durabed is larger than the standard F-150 bed size, providing best-in-class cargo volume for hauling large loads — up to 89.1 cubic feet.
