2018 Ford F-150 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The two brands have a name for durability, power, and for being tough, but in what ways does the 2018 Ford F-150 excel over the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500? There are quite a few ways, but we've narrowed them down to the ones we think our Vernon, Amarillo, Lubbock, Wichita Falls, and Oklahoma City customers will care about most.
