Chevy Silverado vs. Ford F-150: Towing Abilities

If you opt for the configuration that gets the most horsepower, how will that affect your towing capabilities in the Silverado or F-150? The most powerful Silverado engine is the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8, which can tow up to 13,300 pounds. The most powerful F-150 engine is the PowerBost® V6, which can only tow up to 13,100 pounds. That extra 200 pounds to work with in the Silverado may just save you from making two trips when hauling equipment on the job!

Not only that, but the Silverado also offers some unique advantages in the form of the following towing features:

  • Standard Trailering Package: Every new Silverado for sale is equipped with the Trailering Package, which gives you an automatic locking rear differential, a 2-inch receiver and hitch platform, a 4-pin connector, and a 7-wire harness with a 7-way sealed connector so you’re ready to start towing right away.
  • Available Max Trailering Package: Towing becomes even easier with this available package, which adds revised shock tuning, upgraded rear springs, and more.
  • Available Towing Mirrors: You can get towing mirrors fitted on your Silverado 1500 to provide a wider view of surrounding traffic and blind spots.
