2016 Ford F-350 vs 2016 Chevy Silverado HD3500
For thirty-nine years now, the Ford F-Series has been America’s Best Selling Trucks. Thousands of customers are able to back this statement by choosing Ford. At Heritage Ford, we believe that when the going gets tough, you get a Super Duty; but don’t just take our word for it, we’d rather check facts and show you how the 2016 Ford F-350 vs Chevy Silverado HD3500 compare.
Either brand is going to offer three main cab designs: a two-door regular cab, an extended cab, and then a four-door crew cab. (The names of them will just differ depending on the brand.) Drivers will also have the choice of two-or-four wheel drive depending on the type of work being performed. Depending on the bodystyle, there are a number of trim levels to choose from; Ford chooses to provide two luxury options for those who are looking for more than a grunt, but a polished and refined work horse.

2016 Ford F-350: Incredible Strength and Style
At the Super Duty and Heavy Duty level, a truck like this comes with a number of expectations; it’s built to work harder than any other models. Tow with confidence and haul more, reducing the number of trips that would otherwise be necessary.
Strength: Each 2016 Ford F-350 model can be equipped with one of two engines: first there is the standard 6.2L V8 that is able to produce 385 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. Its towing capacity will vary from 12,500-16,100 lbs depending on the trailer hitch and drivetrain. The second engine option is the turbocharged 6.7L diesel V8 that fires up 440 horsepower and 860 lb-ft of torque. Max towing increases with the diesel and power can range from 14,000-26,500 lbs. Again this depends on the trailer hitch set up as well as the drivetrain. Regardless, both engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.
Chevy’s engine options for its Silverado HD3500 aren’t nearly as powerful and efficient compared to what Ford has to provide, but it too offers a gas and turbodiesel option. There is the 6.0L V8 capable of 350 horsepower and the optional 6.6L turbodiesel that manages 397 horsepower.
Style: The Ford F-350 as well as the Chevy Silverado HD3500 both are available in a number of trim levels, allowing a drive to choose just how much technology and pampering is necessary. Ford realizes that you work just as hard as your truck; therefore, in addition to having the confidence that it can perform, creature comforts and convenience make the ride that much more comfortable.
