Compare the New 2019 Ford F-150 to the Competition at Modern Ford of Boone

When you're searching for the best kind of truck here in the Banner Elk and Lenoir area, you'll want to take your time research all available options. Of course it's the new 2019 Ford F-150 that we here in Boone will always recommend, but it's worth comparing this renown pickup to its top competitors. With high-end towing and hauling capabilities, strong safety layers and plenty of tech features, the new 2019 Ford F-150 is the perfect truck, even against other popular options.

To give you an idea of what the new F-150 brings to your travels around Hickory, North Wilkesboro and West Jefferson, we're comparing it to a pair of other pickups: the new Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Ram 1500, both in their latest editions available. Check out these comparisons that show why the new 2019 Ford F-150 is the top dog in the pickup segment, then visit us in Boone from Mountain City today for a closer look.

Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado 1500

  • The range of engine options found in the new F-150, from its standard V-6, a pair of turbocharged V-6 engines, a strong V-8 and even a turbodiesel, give you more horsepower and torque than the comparable engines in the Chevy Silverado 1500.
  • With that in mind, it's no wonder that the top setup of the F-150 can tow more (13,200 pounds) than the top of the line Silverado 1500 (12,200 pounds). Similarly the max payload for the new F-150 is listed at 3,270 pounds, while the latest Silverado 1500 isn't yet rated, but we're sure it won't match that impressive payload capacity.
  • Though your focus is most likely on its towing and hauling capabilities, the new F-150 is far more efficient than the similar setups of the Chevy Silverado 1500, keeping you on the road longer between fill-ups.
  • For safety's sake, you'll appreciate the F-150's legacy of earning high marks, including the IIHS Top Pick rating. The Chevy Silverado 1500 hasn't yet been ranked in its latest edition, but we're confident the Ford truck will offer you the top layers of safety.

Ford F-150 vs Ram 1500

  • While the 2019 Ram 1500 is all-new and the 2019 F-150 is merely a refreshed version of its latest redesign, there are several advantages for the Ford truck. For example, if you want the ultimate off-roader, the F-150 Raptor is tops in this segment, while the Ram 1500 lineup lacks a rugged off-roading truck.
  • The Ram 1500 only offers a pair of engine options, while there are six engines available in the 2019 Ford F-150, including a diesel engine and a few turbocharged options that max out your capabilities.
  • When it comes down to finding your max payload and towing capacities, the F-150 will top out over the Ram 1500, with the Ford truck towing up to 13,200 pounds with a 3,270-pound max payload, figures the Ram 1500 can only imagine matching.
  • Pricing with trucks is tricky because each model offer so many different variations. But at the lower trims, the Ford F-150 is more affordable than what the starting packages of the Ram 1500 command. You can certainly spend more on an F-150 if you choose a fully loaded version, but for all the amenities and high-end specs Ford offers, it's well worth the premium price.
