No Smoke. No Mirrors. Here at PineRidge Ford, we want you to have all the info you need to make the right decision for your needs. If you’re looking for a truck, there are a lot of options and at the top of the list is the Ford F-150.
F-150 is the Champion
For half a century, the Ford F-150 has been Canada’s best selling pickup truck. The undisputed champion of trucks has plenty of competitors trying to knock the F-150 off the top of the mountain. For 50 years the F-150 has taken on all comers and this time around, Chevy Silverado is nipping at the F-150s heels. The popular pickup comes close, but the 2017 Ford F-150 remains the best pickup truck in Canada.
Safety and Build Quality
Both the 2017 Ford F-150 and 2017 Chevy Silverado can claim to be truly safe trucks. Both received a five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). However, the Ford came out just ahead of the Silverado when the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) performed safety tests.
“The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the F-150 as Good in all five categories it measures, while the Silverado was Good in four of the five, with a Marginal rating in small overlap front testing.” - U.S. News and World Report
When a truck’s body is made of aluminum alloy that saves up to 700 lbs in compared to older, all-steel models, it’s not too surprising that the F-150 has impressive fuel efficiency numbers. The 2017 F-150 gets 12.2L/100km in the city and 9.3L/100km on the highway. The Silverado on the other hand gets 12.4L/100km in the city 10.3L/100km on the highway. While it comes close, the Silverado just can’t compete with the F-150.
The Ford F-150’s build is also important to highlight. With a military-grade aluminum alloy body and a steel frame, the F-150 is both light and incredibly rugged. While the Silverado is a decent truck, Chevy will not be releasing the Silverado with an aluminum body until 2019.
Trucks are meant to tow and haul. Whether you16’re towing a trailer or hauling crushed rock to a job site, your truck needs to perform. Both the F-150 and Silverado are impressive hauling and towing machines. When it comes to towing capacity, it’s a virtual tie, with the Silverado capable of towing 12,500 lbs and the F-150 capable of towing 12,200 lbs. When you’re looking to haul a heavy load, however, the F-150 is the only way to go. With a max payload of 3,270 lbs, the F-150 can haul a full 1,000 lbs more than the Silverado. For serious jobs, the F-150 is the only choice.
