F-150 vs. Silverado 1500 Capacities: The Ford is capable of putting up some very impressive towing and payload numbers, but the Silverado 1500 actually reaches a higher maximum with the right equipment. Although the Ford diesel is better-suited to towing, the Chevy diesel handles heavy payloads better.


Interior Dimensions

  • With the F-150, you can have the Regular Cab, the SuperCab, or the SuperCrew. The first of these offers 6.5-ft and 8-ft bed options, and the SuperCab does too. The SuperCrew is offered with a 6.5-ft bed or a 5.5-ft bed.
  • With the Silverado 1500, you’ll choose from the Regular Cab, the Extended Cab, and the Crew Cab. The Regular offers 6.5-ft and 8-ft bed options, the Extended always includes a 6.5-ft bed, and the Crew can be had with 6.5-ft and 5.75-ft bed options.

Keep in mind that both pickups offer a suite of unique features, and that precise dimensions will vary from brand to brand, even when comparing beds of the same length. However, when you compare the 2020 Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado 1500, there’s really no way to go wrong.
