ALEXANDRIA, Ky., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ford and General Motors have had a long running rivalry that has spanned many decades and different battles. But where the rivalry truly comes to a head is in the battle for supremacy in the pickup truck market. For a very long time, the Ford F-150 has been the best selling truck in the United States. And every year, the Chevy Silverado has made some gains to try and catch up. The battle between the 2013 Ford F-150 and the 2013 Chevy Silverado is as intense as ever with both trucks bringing positive qualities to the fight.
Leading off the comparison battle, the 2013 Ford F-150 in Cincinnati offers four different engine options for the many different trim models available for the truck. The base engine is a 3.7-liter V-6 that produces 302-horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque. The Chevy engine comes up a bit short measuring in with a 4.3-liter V-6 that turns out 195-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Even scaling up all the way to the biggest engines available for each pickup truck, the Cincinnati Ford F-150, available at Mike Castrucci of Alexandria, sports a 6.2-liter V-8 that makes 411-hp and 434 lb-ft of torque. The biggest offering in the 2013 Chevy Silverado is also a 6.2-liter V-8 and comes up just short at 403-hp and 417 lb-ft of torque.
Fuel-efficiency has been a concern for pickup truck owners for some time. Because of advances in engine technology this problem is being overcome more and more with every new model year that is produced. For the 2013 models of the Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado, the F-150 is more fuel-efficient at every turn. The Ford's 3.7-liter V-6 and the turbocharged 3.5-liter V-8 lead the way in saving gasoline.
The Ford F-150 also boasts a bigger towing capacity than the 2013 Chevy Silverado. When properly equipped, the 2013 Ford F-150 can tow up to 11,300 pounds, which is enough to lead the full-size pickup truck class as well as make short work of just about anything a person would need to haul with them.
