Ford redesigned the class leading F-150 truck for 2015, using lots of lightweight aluminum in the body, so you can tow more and carry more, but get better fuel economy too. See the latest Ford pickup trucks at Big Spring Ford in Big Spring, TX, and see just how much is new.
Chevy also redesigned the Silverado 1500 for 2015, but it barely looks any different than the previous truck, and it certainly is not as revolutionary as the new Ford.
Of course, both companies offer these trucks with V6 or V8 power. Only Ford has the EcoBoost V6 motors with V8 power when you need it, and V6 economy when you don’t. The EcoBoost turbo 2.7 and 3.5 liter motors are great for towing too, especially if you have to go through the mountains. For the best fuel mileage, choose the EcoBoost 2.7 liter V6 (325hp and 375lb/ft of torque) which is rated at 19 city/26 highway mpg in regular cab 2WD configurations.
The EcoBoost motor that is best for towing is the 3.5 liter turbo, factory rated at over 12,000lbs with the right options. Even the base V6 F-150 is rated at 7,600lbs, no matter the drive wheels of cab/bed configuration. The Chevy Silverado V6 can tow that much, but only extended or crew cab, or 4-wheel drive models. Even fully optioned with the 6.2 liter V8, the Silverado maxes out at 2oolbs less than the F-150, at just 12,000lbs. Even the fuel economy champ EcoBoost 2.7 liter V6 can tow up to 8,500lbs.
The newest F-150 gets more tech savvy gadgets too. Options include a 360 degree camera with dynamic hitch assist, for backing up to a trailer. F-150 gets standard Automatic Trailer Sway Control as well, which uses the stability control system to keep the trailer in line. Top of the line Ford truck even have and option automated parallel parking system
