We’ve done some digging to find out so you can make the right choice for your Dover, OH lifestyle.

Better Performance in the Ford F-150 Lightning

When you buy a truck you’re likely putting it to work. On that front, the Ford F-150 Lightning outshines the Chevy Silverado EV in terms of both power output and capacity. The Ford F-150 Lightning offers 2,000 pounds of payload capacity – 800 pounds more than it’s Chevy competition. And you’ll find the tailgate measurements stamped into the tailgate of the Lightning so there are never any questions about what you can get away with.

The Ford F-150 Lightning also features onboard tech to improve your work life, such as included scales and Pro Trailer Hitch Assist for easier and safer trailering with your new electric truck.

Speaking of towing, the Ford F-150 Lightning once again outperforms the Chevy Silverado EV. The Ford electric pickup can tow up to 10,000 pounds, while the Chevy model clocks in at just 8,000 pounds of towing capacity.

With a 14.1-cubic foot front-storage area under the hood and included power outlets that let you use your truck to power devices and even keep your home running during a power outage, it’s hard to beat the practicality and performance offered by the new Ford F-150 Lightning.
