Serving Brentwood, Franklin, and Nashville, TN

Americans don't just need trucks, we love them! Trucks are used every day on farms, ranches, construction sites, oil wells, and many other sites for hundreds of different tasks. Beyond work, trucks are also used for pulling a wide range of recreational equipment. From fifth wheels and boats to motorcycles and ATVs, we love our toys and the trucks that haul them even more. As long as these jobs and items exist, trucks will continue to be called upon to get the job done.

The Ford F-150 has been America's top-selling truck for quite some time, but it's been facing some stiff competition as of late. While everyone knows the F-150's long-track record of performance and success, many competing brands, such as GMC, have stepped up to the challenge of trying to become the new king of the road. The GMC Sierra 1500, however, still trails the F-150 in several key categories.




For 2015, the re-designed Ford F-150 comes with not one but two brand-new engines that provide the popular pickup with better performance than ever before. The engine options for the 2015 Ford F-150 include a naturally aspirated V6, two EcoBoost V6 engine choices, and a powerful 5.0-liter V8, which produces an impressive 385 horsepower. While the 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 is quite impressive in terms of torque and horsepower, due to its ability to produce up to 420 ponies, the 2015 F-150 is capable of doing more with less. With higher payload and tow ratings, it's clear the F-150 is made for those who push the limits and want a truck that can do so as well.


Towing Capacity


While the 2015 Ford F-150 and GMC Sierra 1500 have similar towing capacities, the Ford is capable of delivering more power. In fact, when properly equipped, the F-150 can tow up to 12,200 pounds, giving it a class-leading tow rating. Interestingly, this towing ability doesn't come from the F-150's beefy V-8. Thanks to Ford's incessant desire to marry performance and fuel efficiency, it's the brand new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that gives the F-150 its impressive towing capacity. If you're wondering how the GMC stacks up, the Sierra 1500 is only able to provide a towing capacity of 12,000 pounds, and that's with a less efficient V8 engine.


Fuel Efficiency


On the topic of fuel-efficiency, one of the engine options available with the 2015 F-150 is a fuel- efficient 2.7-liter V6, which combined with the F-150's new aluminum skin, provides the pickup with a class-leading fuel economy rating of 26 mpg on the highway. Meanwhile, the Sierra 1500 is capable of reaching 24 mpg on the highway, which is the same fuel economy rating it has held for several years now. The re-designed F-150 is proof that Ford is focused and ready for the future, rather than being stuck in the past.


The 2015 Ford F-150 is a great all-around option for drivers interested in a more than capable full-size truck with class-leading performance. While both the F-150 and Sierra 1500 are quite similar in a number of ways, the F-150 offers better performance and fuel-economy, keeping it at the head of the class.
