2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 vs 2020 Ford F-150
Everyone likes their favorite brand of truck for different reasons. There is a lot to be said for brand loyalty, it creates a level of comfort with an interior layout and helps even redesigned vehicles feel familiar no matter how much they change. The Chevrolet Silverado and Ford F-150 have both endured the test of time, each gathering thousands upon thousands of loyal customers over the decades. Now that we find ourselves moving into a new decade again, the 2020 Silverado 1500 and 2020 F-150 are both worth every truck shopper’s attention, even if you have always stuck with one brand.
Use the table below to see how the two famous truck models compare in key categories. You may be surprised at what you find. Take note that these points represent available and estimated figures for properly equipped vehicles.

||Bed Length (inches)
While both trucks come in with similar numbers, it’s the Silverado that tends to come out on top. The Silverado 1500 has an unmatched trailering camera system that uses 15 cameras to give drivers unprecedented visibility. The width and length of the Silverado 1500 bed give it class-leading cargo bed volume.
A head-up display projects vehicle speed and some safety alerts directly onto the windshield of the Silverado, elevating its technological clout. Most trim levels on the Silverado also feature a center console with a set of two USB ports, doubling the set already present on the dashboard. Best-in-class front head and legroom make the Silverado a clear choice for big & tall drivers.
One of the only real drawbacks to the Silverado is that the interior design feels dated for a 2020 model year vehicle. The 2020 Ford F-150, at some trim levels, can feature a greater maximum payload, so depending on how you plan to use your truck, you may still choose the F-150. In the end, however, it’s the Silverado’s greater torque, trailering capacity and bed volume that make it better at doing what trucks do best.
