Silverado EV vs. Ford F-150 Lightning


Compare All-Electric Trucks Like the First-Ever Silverado EV to the Ford F-150 Lightning

Illinois drivers may be intrigued to learn about all-new electric pickups like the Chevrolet Silverado EV and the Ford F-150 Lightning. Although Ford's all-electric truck was the first to debut, the Chevy Silverado EV has superior capabilities and features. Find out what makes the 2024 Chevy Silverado EV the better electric pickup before reserving this Chevrolet through Bill Walsh Streator.

Silverado EV vs. F-150 Lightning Performance

With a Chevy Silverado EV, Streator drivers can easily tow to Chicago or Milwaukee and back on a single charge. Chevrolet's all-electric truck has a 400-mile battery range, easily topping the Ford F-150 Lightning's 300-mile all-electric range. Only 230 miles are offered with Ford's standard battery pack.

At DC Public Fast Charging stations across Illinois, you can replenish 100 miles of range in your Silverado EV every 10 minutes. There are also 120-volt and 240-volt chargers to use at your Peru home. Ford's electric truck adds 30 miles per hour when charging with an 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro.

The Chevrolet Silverado EV also produces more power, up to 660 horsepower and 780 pound-feet of torque with wide-open watts. The Lightning has lower performance ratings of 563 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque.

While both EVs are capable of towing 10,000 pounds, the Silverado EV has a WT model to double its towing capacity to 20,000 pounds. The Silverado EV features an available Four-Corner Air Ride Adaptive Suspension and can reach 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds.

Silverado EV vs. F-150 Lightning Design

Unlike the Lightning, the Silverado EV is built on the Ultium all-new battery platform for superior power, force, and flexibility. Dwight drivers get exclusive design features in the Silverado EV, including a panoramic fixed glass roof and available 24-inch aluminum wheels.

Chevrolet's all-electric truck also offers more versatile truck bed space. Using the Multi-Flex Midgate, Pontiac motorists can let 10-foot-long objects pass through the load stop and Multi-Flex Tailgate. There's a 60/40 flip-and-fold seat to house nine-foot-long objects, and equipment up to six feet in length rests in the truck bed.


Both EVs have a frunk, though visuals indicate the Silverado has more space than the Lightning's 14.1 cubic feet.


Silverado EV vs. F-150 Lightning Technology

With the Lightning's Ford BlueCruise and the Silverado EV's Super Cruise™ Driver Assistance Technology, Ottawa drivers can take advantage of hands-free towing. Both electric trucks offer a comprehensive standard safety suite. Ford Co-Pilot360™ 2.0 offers several driver assists, while the Chevy Safety Assist packages:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Front Pedestrian Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Forward Collision Alert
  • IntelliBeam® High Beam Assist
  • Following Distance Indicator

While the Lightning features SYNC® 4 Technology and a 15.5-inch portrait touchscreen, Oglesby drivers will prefer the Silverado EV's Google built-in connectivity and the larger 17-inch diagonal free-form screen.
