The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado features a choice of three powerful EcoTec3 engines, which produce more power than a standard engine of their size without sacrificing fuel economy and efficiency. The base 4.3L V6 engine produces 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, getting up to 24 mpg highway and towing up to 5,900 lbs. The larger 5.3L V8 produces an impressive 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque, getting up to 22 mpg highway and towing 9,500 lbs. Finally, the 6.2L V8 produces an incredible 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, getting 21 mpg highway and towing an amazing 12,000 lbs.
The 2016 Ford F-150 allows you to choose from a suite of smaller engines, but the standard 3.5L V6 engine only gets a paltry 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. The larger 5.0L V8 engine produces 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque; although it’s the largest engine the F-150 includes, it still doesn’t produce as much energy as the Silverado’s premium engine.
The 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a lot of advantages over the 2016 Ford F-150. Not only will you get more power from the Silverado, you’ll also get a lot of features that are only available as pricey extras on the F-150, or that might not be available at all.
Inside, the Silverado comes with a standard overhead console that lets you store your maps and small items. You’ll get standard rubber and vinyl floor mats that help you keep the inside clean even after a hard day outdoors. A standard leather and metal steering wheel gives you a comfortable grip.
The standard driver’s information center makes it easy to check on your vehicle’s vital information without taking your eyes off the road, while the trip computer helps you keep track of distance and mileage. You’ll get standard SiriusXM satellite radio, as well as six premium speakers for great sound.
Outside, the Silverado features a galvanized steel and aluminum chassis for a powerful and rigid body that gives less in a crash and provides excellent control. Body-colored body side moldings and chrome grille trim gives the Silverado a luxurious look, while standard heated side mirrors banish snow and ice for excellent visibility even in the winter.
For your safety, the Silverado comes with OnStar’s in-vehicle assistance service. Every Chevrolet with OnStar gets you immediate access to OnStar advisers who can dispatch free OnStar roadside assistance, connect you to emergency services and first responders, help you unlock your doors in an emergency, or even help law enforcement find a stolen vehicle. You’ll also get high intensity/low beam headlamps that cast a brighter and clearer light than halogen lamps, and that can automatically dip if they detect another vehicle in the path of the beam.
