When you put steel and aluminum one next to the other, you expect two things: Aluminum will be lighter, and steel will be more grounded. Simply reviewing their beginning control weights, our first figure looks at, as the 2016 Ford F-150 is the lighter model at 4,051 pounds contrasted with the Silverado 1500's beginning check weight of 4,936 lbs. weight of 4,936 lbs.
When we look to their tow and pull abilities, however, the Ford F-150 is the astonishing overachiever. At the point when appropriately prepared, the 2016 F-150 can bear 3,270 pounds in its quaint little inn to 12,200 pounds close behind, which are exceptional section details. With a lighter truck body to move, the Ford F-150's powertrain can go up against more weight somewhere else.
The 2016 Silverado 1500's solid and enduring steel is straight up with the F-150 as far as towing capacity, offering a maximum limit of 12,000 pounds, barely shy of the Ford's driving numbers. Be that as it may, since the Silverado has a heavier steel work to pull notwithstanding what you stack it up with, its maximum payload details endure. The Ford's improved aluminum capacity can deal with more than 1,000 pounds more than the Silverado can (3,270 versus 2,260 pounds).
Chevy Silverado 1500 versus Portage F-150: Engine Comparison
V6 and V8 motors Powering these versatile pickups is a variety of accessible V6 and V8 motors. Section level V6s blend about 280 strength and 305 lb-ft of torque for the Silverado and 253 lb-ft for the F-150, individually.
Top power details are property of the 2016 Silverado's burliest motor, a 6.2-liter V8 that makes 420 drive and 460 lb-ft of torque. (The F-150's best power originates from its twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 at 365 strength and 420 lb-ft of torque.)
Turbocharging medicines permit the F-150 to assert the most noteworthy mileage of the two trucks, with its 2.7-liter V6 restoring an EPA-evaluated 19 city/26 roadway mpg. The Chevy Silverado's nearest battling marks originate from its base V6 demonstrate at an expected 18 city/24 interstate mpg.
Steel versus Aluminum: In Summary
As two models that rule at the highest point of the full-estimate trucking domain, the 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 and the 2016 Ford F-150 offer bigtime abilities. Be that as it may, when it gets down to it, the Ford F-150's aluminum development more than demonstrates its light yet solid capacities.
Passage plans to put its overwhelming obligation models in the F-Series family, known as Ford Super Duty models, on a similar aluminum-framed track for 2017, which means those after helped force and power details sponsored by turbodiesel execution will soon meet their trucking match.
ATC understudies prepare with the most recent present day vehicle frameworks and innovation, and we're generally watchful for forthcoming auto patterns. The F-150's progress to an all-aluminum way to deal with trucking is only one case of an effective idea that is made ready for an industry-evolving standard.
