Teen Driver Technology
Comparing Chevy vs. Ford trucks in the hopes of narrowing down the pickup that’s best equipped to help you tackle the workday in Birmingham? If you’re like so many other Vestavia Hills drivers, you’re likely to end up researching the merits of the Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado. In the guide below, Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover compares the power, cabin space, and more of the new Silverado 1500 vs. F-150 to help you reach a confident decision!
Both the 2021 Silverado 1500 and the 2021 F-150 offer up six engine choices, ranging from V6 to V8 and including both gas and diesel power. Familiarize yourself with your options before continuing on in our Chevy vs. Ford truck showdown:
Looking for the pickup that provides the most towing power? That would be the Silverado 1500. Equipped with the EcoTec3 V8 gas engine, the 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 can tow up to 13,300 pounds*. That’s 200 pounds more than the F-150, which maxes out at just 13,100 pounds with its EcoBoost® V6 powertrain.
In addition to towing more than the F-150, the Silverado 1500 also provides these helpful features for a simpler trailering experience in Bessemer:
Pickup trucks are a convenient option with their cargo-friendly beds and towing capabilities, but there’s a small compromise to be made when it comes to cabin space. The Silverado provides more legroom and headroom than its competitor, making it an ideal choice for those who spend a lot of time on the road:
If you compare the safety technology of the Silverado 1500 vs. F-150, you’ll see that only the Silverado provides a system that helps monitor other drivers when they’re behind the wheel of your truck. This system is called Teen Driver, but it can be useful anytime you allow a friend or family member to borrow your truck – even if they’re not a teenager.
Teen Driver allows you to set speed limits and audio volume limits, enable a buckle-to-drive monitor, and more. Currently, Ford vehicles do not provide a comparable feature to Teen Driver.
