The 2020 Ford F-150 comes in various configurations, as well as trim levels. This includes trims that offer luxurious cabin designs. It also includes the F-150 Raptor.

With the Ford Raptor, you can take on much more than just the paved roads of Geneva, Canandaigua, and Rochester, NY. The 2020 Raptor is equipped to handle any obstacles, so you can truly take your truck wherever you would like.

How does this compare to other similar models on the market, though? Our team at Friendly Ford compared the Ford Raptor vs. Chevy Silverado to find out.

Ford Raptor vs Chevy Silverado: Performance

What makes the Ford Raptor such a highly capable truck when it comes to off-road driving? It starts with its engine. Powering the Raptor is a High-Output 3.5L V6 EcoBoost® engine. This creates a massive amount of power, as it generates 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

The Chevy can't match that type of output. It comes with a 285-horsepower 4.3L V6 engine, and offers up to 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque with its available 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine. With the power the Raptor's engine produces you'll have strong capabilities, whether you are driving or towing on the paved roads or dirt trails. 

Ford Raptor vs Chevy Silverado: Off-Road Capabilities

While the Chevy Silverado offers a lot of similar features as the Raptor-like a locking rear differential, 4-wheel drive (4WD), Hill Descent Control™, and all-terrain tires-it doesn't provide the same level of sophisticated engineering and premium components of the Raptor.

Trail Control™ is one of these sophisticated systems in the Ford Raptor. It is essentially cruise control for when you are off-roading. You can set a speed and the system will manage both the acceleration and braking. It can even send torque to specific wheels as needed to keep you stable, which allows you to focus on steering over or around obstacles.  

The FOX live valve monotube shocks equipped in the Raptor also help improve the truck's performance. Road conditions can change quickly when you're off-roading. With these shocks' ability to adjust on the fly, you'll continuously enjoy smooth and stable driving, even over the roughest terrain.

 Ford Raptor vs Chevy Silverado: Towing Capacity

The Ford Raptor also offers innovative features that will help you in a variety of ways. The 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display gives you a bird's eye view of your truck to see your entire surroundings. This even makes lining up your trailer to your truck easier.

The Chevy Silverado offers a similar available camera system to get a great view of your surroundings and also hitch up your trailer with ease. The Ford Raptor takes things a step further, though, with its available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. This makes backing up your trailer easier, since all you have to do is turn a knob the direction you want it to go.
