2021 Silverado 1500 vs. F-150: Interior Dimensions 

Being comfortable in your truck is important, whether you’re doing tough jobs or going on trips outside Ocean Springs. While both the Silverado and F-150 have a max six-passenger capacity, the Silverado has more headroom and legroom in the front. Here’s the 2021 Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado interior specs:

  • Front Headroom: 43.1 inches

Ford F-150 Front Dimensions

2021 Ford F-150 vs. Silverado 1500: Towing and Safety 

If you need a lot of power and towing features with your truck in Vancleave, the Silverado is the way to go. Its max towing capacity of 13,300 pounds is quite formidable. While the Ford does have a slight towing edge, the Silverado towing features more than make up the difference. Consult our service center to get the right equipment and technology for whatever towing tasks come your way: 

  • Silverado Trailering Package: The standard Silverado trailering package comes with an automatic locking rear differential, a 2-inch receiver, a hitch platform, a 4-pin connector, and a useful  7-wire harness with a 7-way sealed connector.
  • Available Max Trailering Package: Want even better trailering performance on the Silverado? The Max Trailering Package helps you with revised shock tuning, upgraded rear springs, and other performance features. 
  • Available Towing Mirrors: Towing mirrors are a useful tool for staying in the know as you’re towing down tricky highways and roads.
