The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in the United States for 43 consecutive years including 2019. Though the results for 2020 are not finalized until December gives way to January, it seems likely that this full-sized line of durably constructed trucks will retain its crown as the king of the class. The 2020 Ford F-150 is not without competition, however. Probably its most adversarial opponent is the Silverado 1500. So, let’s take a look at both 2020 models and see which one deserves the throne.
In 2019 Chevy redesigned the Silverado 1500 and adopted a brand-new look altogether. Assuming a modern flare, the 2020 Silverado 1500 added curves to the body of the truck. It also sports a boxier look than the F-150.
Ford, on the other hand, has stuck to its guns as the 2020 Ford F-150 is the sixth year of the vehicle’s basic design. The Ford F-150 maintains a more classically sculpted cabin and bed with more subtle features. Perhaps Ford is carrying the long-held American expression, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” That isn’t to say the company is resting on its laurels as Ford’s design team is always looking to offer new subtle features to refine the classic exterior of the F-150.
There is only a little bit of distinction regarding interior design between these two trucks. This is a category that comes down to taste and which one you prefer. Both come loaded with features that mirror the other in terms of function and practicality.

When comparing the capabilities of different between the two full-sized trucks, you’ll find redundancy as well as advantages. It depends on what you’re looking at and what you’re comparing.
For example, most generic and comparable trims between the Silverado and the F-150 stack up competitively against each other. However, there are two major areas that Ford separates itself. Ford’s diesel options for the 2020 Ford F-150 simply blow any Silverado comparison out of the water. The F-150 also outduels its competitor by providing a number of specialty models like the Raptor.
After comparing the two pickups it’s a little easier to understand why America has chosen the F-150 for 43 straight years. You can find the perfect new 2020 Ford F-150 model for you online at Hope Auto Company.
