O'Brien Ford of Shelbyville is the Ford dealership near Lexington, KY to visit for a great selection of new Ford cars - like the 2020 Ford F-150. This versatile and capable full-size pickup truck has been impressing drivers for years. Learn more about how it stacks up against competing models like the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500.


The 2020 Ford F-150 is no slouch when it comes to power. The base engine is a respectable 3.3-liter V6 that earns 290 horsepower. Hardier powertrains include a 2.7-liter turbocharged engine delivering 325 horsepower, a 5.0-liter V8 that puts out 395 horsepower, and 3.5-liter V6 variations that are capable of achieving up to 450 horsepower.  

The 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 also presents several robust powertrains, but the entry-level 4.3-liter V6 engine lags behind, putting out 285 horsepower. The most powerful engine, a 6.2-liter V8, also falls slightly below the capability of the top powertrain in the 2020 Ford F-150 - putting out just 420 horsepower.


Both of these full-size pickups are capable of performing on the job site. The maximum payload you'll find in the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 is 2,250 pounds and the towing capacity reaches up to 12,100 pounds when properly equipped. The 2020 Ford F-150 offers even more towing capacity at up to 13,200 pounds and a maximum payload of 3,270 pounds - which is best in its class. The 2020 Ford F-150 also takes the edge when it comes to rear-seat comfort with 64.6 inches of hip room versus 60.2 inches the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500.


When it comes to keeping drivers comfortable with plenty of tech conveniences, the 2020 Ford F-150 delivers. The base trim gets standard Wi-Fi connectivity, but the 2020 Ford F-150 XLT offers an even more appealing batch of tech traits including an eight-inch touchscreen with Ford SYNC® 3 and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ compatibility. While the 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 also offers iOS and Android smartphone integration from the base model, the touchscreen maxes out at seven inches and Wi-Fi is not a standard feature on 2020 models.

Both of these full-size trucks are equipped for work and play, but we think you'll be taken with the variety of luxury features and powertrains offered by the 2020 Ford F-150. Build your perfect configuration at our Shelbyville, KY Ford dealership.
