Summary

There’s a reason the 2020 Ford F-150 remains Canada’s best-selling full-size pickup truck, and it can be summed up in three words: value, capability and style. While General Motors’ big Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra twins now offer more towing capacity than the F-150, they, along with the Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan follow the Ford when it comes to customer loyalty. The F-150 is full of innovative features pickup-truck owners need, but it also comes with luxury and high-tech features they don’t expect.

The F-150 also offers a nearly inexhaustible choice of trims, configurations and options, allowing it to be everything from a daily workhorse to limousine-like transport. Several engine choices further distance the F-150 from trucks like the Tundra and Titan, and Ford still holds the title for best-in-class payload.

 

2020 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab

Starting Price: $40,503 CDN

Pros

  • Best-in class towing
  • Great all-rounder
  • Wide range of engines
  • Excellent towing abilities

Cons

  • Interior of higher end models not as luxurious as rivals
  • Largest infotainment touch screen measures over 8 inches diagonally

What's New For 2020

  • Superb 10-speed automatic transmission and 6.2-litre V8 are available in more versions
  • Camera-based adaptive cruise control offered in LT, LTZ and High Country trims
  • Expanded towing technologies
  • New diesel-engine option in LT, RST, LTZ and High Country models

 

Summary

The 2020 Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickup truck is now in the second year of a new generation. It provides another choice in the half-ton-truck segment to buyers who are spoiled by years of superb machines from Ford and Ram, plus some keen competition from the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan.

The Silverado deploys technology and smart engineering to make it lighter, more fuel-efficient and roomier than its predecessor. It’s a strong and reliable performer with a broad range of abilities while spanning from utilitarian Work Truck to high-class High Country trim levels. Any buyer seeking a new full-size truck should investigate the 2020 Silverado.

 

Final Recommendation

In the areas of comfort, power, features, trims and configurations, the 2020 Ford F-150 and 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 match up fairly evenly. However, if you need maximum payload, or off-roading capability, or you simply want the full-size truck with the most horsepower, the F-150 is the clear winner. The F-150 also offers a few more advanced tech systems to assist in towing, parking and trailering.
