Interior Space

When it comes to cabin space, the Silverado 1500 has the edge over the Ford F-150. The Silverado 1500 boasts superior front legroom and front head room, making it a more spacious and more comfortable choice for drivers and passengers who like to have a bit more room to stretch. So, whether your adventures lead you around Simi Valley or away from town, you can depend on the Silverado 1500 to deliver the room you need to get the most out of those long drives.

Towing and Hauling Power

The Chevy Silverado 1500 offers an impressive max towing capacity of up to 13,300 pounds and a payload capacity of up to 2,280 pounds making it a remarkably capable light-duty truck that supplies plenty of the extra muscle you need to haul big toys or tow heavy trailers around Calabasas. While the F-150 is capable of slightly higher numbers, climbing the trim ladder to get the necessary upgrades can get costly quickly.

Multi-Flex Tailgate

One of the things that set the Chevy Silverado 1500 apart from rivals like the F-150 is the Multi-Flex Tailgate. This handy feature is available on all eight of the Silverado 1500 trim levels, and it supplies six functions to make getting cargo into and out of the truck bed easier than ever. The Multi-Flex Tailgate can be used to:

  • Secure extra-long items and keep them from sliding out of the truck bed
  • Provide easy access to the truck bed so that you can reach in with little effort
  • Create a step capable of holding up to 375 pounds to make it easier to access the truck bed
  • Create a workspace that supplies a spot for a laptop or other work materials so that you have somewhere to set your things while you work
  • And more!

Versatile, Functional Truck Bed

The durable truck bed in the Chevy Silverado 1500 is the envy of many trucks, including the F-150. It offers up to 89.1 cubic feet of space in the standard bed, giving you more room to work with when you need to gear up for a journey around the Camarillo area. Whether you pack the truck bed full of camping gear or use the extra room to secure big toys, the Silverado 1500 was made to help you carry more. You'll also find 12 standard tie-downs to help you secure your cargo, which puts the pressure on trucks like the F-150.
