Chevy Silverado EV vs. Ford F-150 Lightning

All-electric trucks are the way of the future. The Chevy lineup has always boasted a lineup of hardy, rugged work trucks that transcend the simple needs of the worksite and provide a world-class experience no matter what you need the pickup for. With the new Chevy Silverado EV, you'll find a robust, all-electric model that won't back down from a challenge. Rivals like the Ford F-150 Lightning are sure to be suggested as a worthy competitor to the all-electric Silverado EV, but below, you'll see why the Chevy pickup truck sets itself apart.


  • Neither truck sports a conventional engine under the hood but instead equip rechargeable battery packs that help you hit the road quickly after a night's charge. With the Chevy Silverado's battery pack, you'll enjoy a maximum range of 400 miles on a single charge. The F-150 Lightning's Extended battery can't match that, only reaching up to 300 miles.

  • Thanks to Wide Open Watts performance, the Chevy Silverado EV makes 660 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque. With the Ford F-150 Lightning, you'll have to make do with the Extended-Range battery delivering only 563 horsepower and 778 pound-feet of torque.


  • When properly equipped, the F-150 Lightning can tow up to 10,000 pounds, a feat that the Chevy Silverado EV matches. However, with the Silverado EV WT trim, maximum towing capacity increases to 20,000 pounds - the Ford pickup has no answer for this.

  • Innovation is achieved through the Silverado EV's Multi-Flex Tailgate and Midgate features. This configuration allows you to carry items in your cargo bed that extend up to 10 feet in length. You won't find the same capability in the F-150 Lightning.

Exclusive Battery Platform + Tech

  • The Chevy Silverado EV sports the Ultium battery platform with Ultifi software to ensure the quickest way to recharge your vehicle with over-the-air updates to ensure your vehicle keeps up with you. The F-150 Lightning doesn't offer this technology.

  • Seamless connectivity is expected from both lineups, and neither disappoints. However, the Chevy Silverado EV stays a step ahead with features like Super Cruiseâ„¢ hands-free driving, a 17-inch diagonal, free-form screen, and Google Built-In to control your music, navigation, and more with seamless voice control. You won't find any of these features in the new Ford F-150 Lightning lineup.
