When three different drivers share the F-150 (except XL/XLT), the optional memory system makes it convenient for all three. Each setting activates different, customized memories for the driver’s seat position, steering wheel position, foot pedal distance and outside mirror angle. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer a memory system.

The F-150 (except XL/XLT)’s optional easy entry system raises the steering wheel and glides the driver’s seat back when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

The F-150’s power parking brake sets with one touch and releases with one touch or automatically. The Silverado LD’s parking brake has to released manually.

The F-150 XLT/Lariat/King Ranch/Platinum’s front power windows both open or close with one touch of the switches. The Silverado LD ’s front passenger window doesn’t close automatically.

In case you lock your keys in your vehicle, or don’t have them with you, you can let yourself in using the F-150’s standard exterior PIN entry system (not available on F-150 XL). The Silverado LD doesn’t offer an exterior PIN entry system, and its extra cost OnStar® can’t unlock the doors if the vehicle doesn’t have cell phone reception or the driver can’t contact the service.

The Silverado LD doesn’t offer an exterior PIN entry system, and its extra cost OnStar® can’t unlock the doors if the vehicle doesn’t have cell phone reception or the driver can’t contact the service.

Intelligent Access optional on the F-150 (except XL/XLT) allows you to unlock the driver’s door, tailgate and start the engine all without removing a key from pocket or purse. This eliminates searching for keys before loading cargo, getting in the vehicle in bad weather or making a hurried start to your trip. The Chevrolet Silverado LD doesn’t offer an advanced key system.

The F-150’s standard speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Silverado LD’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted. The F-150’s optional wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors standard on the F-150 detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

The F-150’s optional rear and side view mirrors have an automatic dimming feature. These mirrors can be set to automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer the luxury of automatic dimming mirrors.

Both the F-150 and the Silverado LD offer available heated front seats. The F-150 SuperCrew also offers optional heated rear seats to keep those passengers extremely comfortable in the winter. Heated rear seats aren’t available in the Silverado LD.

Optional air-conditioned seats in the F-150 (except XL/XLT) keep the driver and front passenger comfortable and take the sting out of hot seats in summer. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer air-conditioned seats.

On extremely cold winter days, the F-150’s optional (except XL/XLT) heated steering wheel provides comfort, allowing the driver to steer safely and comfortably before the vehicle heater warms up. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer a heated steering wheel.

Both the F-150 and the Silverado LD offer rear vents. For greater rear passenger comfort, the F-150 SuperCab/SuperCrew has standard rear air-conditioning vents to keep rear occupants cool in summer or warm in winter. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer rear air-conditioning vents, only heat vents.

A built-in pollen filter removes pollen, exhaust fumes and other pollutants from the F-150’s passenger compartment. This helps prevent lung and/or sinus irritation, which can trigger allergies or asthma. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer a filtration system.

To keep a safe, consistent following distance, the F-150 (except XL/XLT) offers an optional Adaptive Cruise Control, which alters the speed of the vehicle without driver intervention. This allows the driver to use cruise control more safely without constantly having to disengage it when approaching slower traffic. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer an adaptive cruise control.

The F-150 (except XL/XLT)’s optional Park Assist can parallel park by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Silverado LD doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
