The power an engine on a truck has is an important spec. If you are buying a truck for your heavy-duty work in Grand Blanc, you need to know that you are getting an engine that will be able to tow and haul all of your equipment.

Not only is the choice of whatever engine you want nice, but these engines are more powerful than what the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2021 Ram 1500 offer. The Ram 1500 has a half hybrid with the eTorque in the 5.7L V8 engine, while the Chevy Silverado does not even have a hybrid option.

As a result of the powerful engines, the 2021 Ford F-150 finishes in first place with its towing capabilities. This truck maxes out at 14,000 pounds, while the Chevy Silverado tops at 13,300 pounds and the Ram 1500 at 12,750. So, if you like to take your boat out on Lake Fenton, the Ford F-150 makes it easy.

When it comes to hauling your materials to your job site in Clarkston, the Ford F-150 also comes out on top. The bed can handle up to 3,325 pounds with the 5.0L V8 engine. This is significantly better than the Ram 1500's payload of 2,300 pounds and the Chevy's payload of 2,280 pounds.
