Though the battle between Ford and Chevrolet pickups is legendary, only one lineup has spent 43 years on top of the list of best-selling trucks in America. Keep reading to learn how the 2020 Ford Super Duty pickup outperforms the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD for work and play.
Both the 2020 Ford Super Duty and the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD were designed with the demands of the jobsite in mind, but which truck can guarantee a job well done? The Silverado HD offers two 6.6-liter V8 powertrain options: a gas-powered engine and a Duramax Turbo-Diesel configuration. The Ford Super Duty, on the other hand, offers three engine options for maximum powertrain customization. The Super Duty’s 6.2-liter Flex-Fuel V8 engine is the powerful Ford pickup’s standard option, but two best-in-class gas and diesel options are available as well. The Super Duty’s 6.7-liter V8 Power Stroke® Turbo-Diesel engine delivers up to 475 horsepower and as much as 1,050 lb-ft of torque, while the 7.3-liter gas V8 provides 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. Comparatively, the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD’s diesel engine only musters 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque, and its gas powertrain manages just 401 horsepower and 464 lb-ft of torque.
In addition to destroying its competition at work, the 2020 Ford Super Duty bests the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD when it comes to recreation. The Ford Super Duty’s accolades for towing and payload are numerous. Not only is the pickup’s 21,000-pound conventional gas towing capacity the best in its class, but its 24,200-pound maximum diesel towing capability is greater than any other heavy-duty competitor. Additionally, the Super Duty’s gross combined weight rating, payload, gooseneck, and fifth-wheel towing capabilities are the best-in-class as well. If you have an adventurous spirit, the Super Duty’s available Tremor Off-Road Package with 35-inch all-terrain tires, Trail Control technology, and 33-inch water fording capability will excite your inner thrill-seeker.
