After settling for a solid spot in the middle of the truck segment for years, the 2019 Chevy Silverado in Central Oregon is now gunning for the top spot with modern engineering and all-new technology. Standing in its way is the 2019 Ford-F150, America’s best-selling truck for 42 straight years. The Ford F-150 never stops evolving, and the 2019 model is its finest version yet!
Does the 2019 Chevy Silverado have what it takes to topple the king of all trucks?
Passenger Space Comparison
The 2019 Chevy Silverado may be new, but its conservative interiors continue to look dated. On the plus side, it does have smart storage spaces, a crisp 8-inch touchscreen, and a pleasantly quiet cabin. Unfortunately, low-quality materials are used in the cabin such as low-grade chrome finishes and black plastic, as well as a lack of a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel.
The high-end Limited and King Ranch trims completely dominate even top-of-the-line Chevy Silverado trucks. This truck is luxury at its finest, with heating, cooling, and massaging leather seats. Also included are an outstanding Bang & Olufsen sound system and a beautiful moonroof. Technology is everywhere with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, 3-prong power outlets, and the widely-praised SYNC 3 infotainment system with Alexa, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto capabilities with useful features such as reading your text messages aloud.
The 2019 GMC Sierra in Central Oregon is a full-size pickup that is a giant in terms of capability. Its latest edition is making a big impact on the market, however, its great rival, the 2019 Ford F-150, is rising up to the challenge with improved engines and capabilities. With its reputation for toughness throughout the years, will the Ford F-150 successfully dethrone the GMC Sierra?
Even with the heft of full-size pickups, both vehicles’ commitment to safety is second to none. They were both subjected to testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2018 GMC Sierra – which has many similarities to the latest model – was used in the testing. According to the reports, the GMC Sierra had a decent crashworthiness score, but failed in crash avoidance and usability of child seat anchors (LATCH). In contrast, the 2019 Ford F-150 registered superior in crash prevention and had a more user-friendly LATCH, on top of its high crashworthiness score.
The Ford F-150’s driver assist technologies have drastically improved, giving renewed confidence to drivers. The Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go enables a safe cruising speed. Pre-Collision Assist also helps drivers avoid sudden encounters with pedestrians through fully responsive automatic brakes. Finally, the Lane Keeping System is more accurate than ever and can tell you if you are dozing off and may need a coffee break.
