Comparing the base specs first, the Silverado and the F-150 are very close in base price with the Silverado EV Work Truck costing $39,900 and the F-150 Lightning Pro just $74 more at $39,974.
However if you want the top of the line trim, The Silverado EV RST First Edition will cost $105,900 and Ford is charging $90,874 for the F-150 Lightning Platinum.
The Silverado has 664 hp and 780 lb-ft and the F-150 - 563 hp and 775 lb-ft.
Both trucks will go from 0-60mph in less than 4.5 seconds.
Payload rating: 2,000 pounds for the F-150 versus the Silverado EV WT's 1,200 pounds
At 10,000 pounds, the Lightning will initially have more towing capacity than the Silverado EV WT's 8,000 pounds. If you want to match Fords towing capacity you’re going to have to upgrade to the RST trim.
In addition to that, Chevy is working on a Max Tow version of the work truck that can trailer up to 20,000 pounds and that’s double what the Ford can tow.
The Silverado EV Work Truck has an estimated range of around 400 miles while the F-150 Lightning Pro needs to be plugged in at the 300-mile mark.
The Chevy is also compatible with 350-kW DC fast chargers, while the Ford can draw a maximum of 150 kW. That means the Chevy gets back to work sooner.
