    The Ford versus Chevy rivalry has entered a new phase with the faceoff between the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs 2022 Ford F-150. This is no simple throw-down where the F-150 walks away as the victor, as it does against many competitors. No, this age-old rivalry has escalated, and Chevrolet's engineers are determined to keep the Silverado 1500 as the best available light-duty pickup on the market. The refreshed 2022 Silverado 1500 quite simply takes trucks to the next level.

    The 2022 Silverado 1500 is available in nine different trims. The starting entry-level WT gets things started, followed by the Custom, Custom Trail Boss, LT, and RST. From there, things shift towards the upper-end trims, including the off-road LT Trail Boss, the LTZ, and the all-new ZR2 trim making its appearance on the full-size Silverado for the very first time. Finally, the line-up is topped off with the luxury-oriented High Country, giving truck drivers access to both high-end performance and high-end prestige.

    The 2022 Ford F-150 is available in seven trims, which start with the entry-level XL trim. The XLT is the next step up, followed by the Lariat, the King Ranch, the Platinum, and the off-road-tuned Tremor, with the top-of-the-line Limited rounding out the list. Both the F-150 and Silverado are available in multiple exterior and interior colors as well.

    2022 Silverado Engine Options

    The performance of the 2022 Silverado 1500 is marked by more than a handful of different powertrain options in rear-wheel and four-wheel drive. The new base engine revamped 2.7-liter 4-cylinder that offers an impressive 430 pound-feet of low-end torque. The engine has 310 horsepower and is paired up with an 8-speed automatic transmission. In fact, it's the only one of the Silverado 1500's powertrain options that's paired to an 8-speed; the rest are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

    The Silverado 1500's other powertrain options include the 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8, the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8, and the 3.0-liter Duramax inline 6-cylinder turbo-diesel. Select trims also come with an Autotrac two-speed transfer case with multiple drive modes for full four-wheel drive capabilities and off-road stability and traction control. This is highlighted further by StabiliTrak functionality, which is an electronic stability and traction control system to ensure you get the smoothest and most stable ride available for the Silverado 1500.

    2022 F-150 Engine Options

    The Ford F-150 features five powertrains in rear-wheel and four-wheel drive formats, starting with the 3.3-liter V6, and followed by a 2.7-liter EcoBoost turbocharged V6. The 5.0-liter V8 is followed by the 3.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged V6, and finally, the 3.5-liter PowerBoost V6 Hybrid, which combines an electric motor with a combustion engine. The F-150 also features a two-speed transfer case with automatic four-wheel drive and towing capabilities. Multiple drive modes also come standard across the trims, and all powertrains are paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission with optional manual shifting via steering wheel paddle shifters.

    While the F-150 may just barely top out the Silverado 1500 in the horsepower and torque category, the 2022 Silverado 1500 fires back with much faster access to torque with the 2.7-liter high-output turbocharged 4-cylinder. The Silverado 1500 has better overall fuel economy. The F-150 tops out at 20 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost turbocharged V6, or 23 miles per gallon in the city and 23 miles per gallon on the highway with the 3.5-liter Powerboost V6 Hybrid. However, the Silverado 1500 maxes out at an impressive 23 miles per gallon in the city and up to 31 miles per gallon on the highway with the highly efficient turbocharged Duramax 3.0-liter diesel engine.

    Drive the Truck You Need

    A pickup truck's capacity is as important as its performance capabilities. When it comes to the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs 2022 Ford F-150, both trucks offer various options both inside and out when it comes to configuring the trucks for different purposes. The Silverado 1500 is available in Regular Cab, Double Cab, and Crew Cab format, along with short, regular, and long beds.

    The F-150 is also available in three different cab sizes with three different bed sizes. This includes the Regular Cab, the SuperCab, and the SuperCrew. Like the Silverado, the F-150 is available in two-door or four-door configurations that can seat up to six people. Much like the Silverado, you can also have the F-150 configured in short, regular, and long beds. The difference between the two of them is in the sizes.

    The 2022 Silverado 1500 beats the F-150 when it comes to bed sizes in each category. The Silverado's short bed is 62.9 cubic feet, whereas the F-150's short bed is only 52.8 cubic feet. The Silverado's regular bed is 71.7 cubic feet, while the F-150's regular bed is 62.3 cubic feet. Finally, the Silverado's long bed is 89.1 cubic feet, and the F-150's long bed is 77.4 cubic feet. No matter how you cut it, the Silverado has a much larger bed than the F-150, so you have more room for storage.

    Bigger and Better Infotainment

    On the technology front, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 comes out ahead of the 2022 Ford F-150. The Silverado has the Chevrolet Infotainment System powering its tech suite, while the Ford F-150 is powered by the SYNC 4 system. This enables both trucks to make use of wireless Bluetooth support, voice-activated navigation and media controls, as well as integrated support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both trucks also come fully equipped with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot support, so you can stay connected wherever you go.

    USB ports, wireless charging, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, driver information display units, and available heated and ventilated 10-way power-adjustable front seats help add to the appeal of both trucks. However, the Silverado's system is larger and easier to operate. With the F-150, you have a maximum 12-inch diagonal capacitive touchscreen, allowing you to pair the vehicle with smart devices thanks to the SYNC. However, the Silverado 1500 ups the ante with a massive 13.4-inch diagonal touchscreen with smart device integration. The added benefit of OnStar network support through the Chevrolet Connected Services program also adds to the safety and security aspects of the Silverado.

    More Accessible Hands-Free Driving

    The F-150 is no pushover when it comes to safety and security. The Ford Co-Pilot360 features many of the same active and passive safety mechanisms as the Silverado, including lane change alert, lane departure warnings, and blind spot warnings with cross-traffic. All of these features aid the F-150's BlueCruise semi-autonomous driving system, enabling the F-150 to provide hands-free driving on up to 130,000 miles of road across North America.

    The Silverado 1500 matches the F-150 and raises the stakes, not only with a complete safety suite of active and passive features, but it also comes with the Teen Driver mode, which the F-150 does not have. Parents can monitor their teen's driving and receive electronic report cards of their child's driving habits, while Teen Driver also encourages safety practices whenever your teen sits behind the wheel. What's more is that the 2022 Silverado 1500 comes with the Super Cruise semi-autonomous hands-free driving suite, which makes full use of the truck's safety features, allowing drivers to cruise across more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads across North America. This certainly gives the edge to the Silverado in a rather significant way, both with bigger and better tech, as well as having a more robust safety suite.
