Chevrolet Silverado EV vs Ford F-150 Lightning

Compare Electric Trucks: The Chevy Silverado EV vs. Ford F-150 Lightning

If you're in the market for an all-electric heavy-duty truck, there are most certainly two heavy hitters to pick between. The Ford F-150 Lightning and the Chevy Silverado EV were announced in 2022 and brought Stateboro shoppers a new take on the heavy-duty pickup hauler. We think you'll find that the Chevy is the perfect choice for you based on power, design, attention to detail, and interior comfort. Start exploring the key differences between these two models today, then shop with Daniels Chevrolet Buick GMC located near Waynesboro.

Power and Performance Abilities

Both models feature 100-percent electric powertrains with dual-motor configuration and all-wheel drive. The similarities end there, as the Chevy soars past the Ford in range numbers. The standard Chevy Silverado EV configuration produces up to 410-horsepower and 615-pound-feet of torque, while the Ford generates a similar 426-horsepower from the standard configuration. Drivers can venture up to 400-miles with the extended range battery pack in the Chevy Silverado EV, which is far more than the Ford model's max 300-mile range. Both trucks can tow up to 10,000-pounds.

Design: Inside and Out

Both vehicles are featured as crew cabs with a six-foot bed attached, but serious differences are found in the approach to the design. The Ford lightning is similar to the Ford F-150 counterparts in the lineup, posing as a "normal" truck in a sense. The Silverado EV features the new GMC Hummer EV architecture, with front and rear independent suspension and futuristic design amenities that are completely different from other Chevy Silverado models in the lineup.

Unique interior amenities such as a two-tone leather seating, a completely glass roof, contrasting piping, heavily bolstered seats, and a massive center console with amazing depth create a sense of uniqueness in the Chevy compared to the rather average Ford model.

Technology Integration

More technology is integrated into the Chevy Silverado EV than in the Ford F-150 Lightning, which once again sticks to the classics of their branding. Ford comes with a 12-inch standard touchscreen only with the choice for a 15-inch screen. The 11-inch center display and eight-inch digital gauge cluster are standard features on the Chevy Silverado, and a 17-inch display brings even more surface area for you to play with. The Chevy stands out by providing a nice mixture of digital and analog controls, knobs, and buttons, for the vital features you want to be able to control, such as your climate zones, volume, and more.

Safety and Driver's Assistance

Both vehicles run head to head in the driver's assistance amenities. With features such as standard driver's aides ranging from auto braking collision mitigation and pedestrian detection, you'll find plenty of simple ways to stay informed on the go. Both models also extend the lineup of availabilities by offering features like adaptive cruise control, a self-driving mode, and lane keeping aides as options on the docket.
