Chevy every time

Definitely a F-350. Stronger engine. More pulling power. More torque and the only worry there is less gas mileage.

What year? There are many different styles of these pickups and niether was the best all the way through. Ford pickups are the most reliable. The 2011s aren't a whole lot different with power but Ford is now ahead with 400 HP and 800 TQ from the factory compared to 396HP and 765 TQ. Even with more power, the Ford has consistantly better mileage, in part to their new 6-speed Auto transmission. Right now? Ford

If your going to work it hard towing and hauling I'd go with the ford, but if fuel economy is a concern I would get the chevy. The fords chassis is built heavier but experiences lots of balljoint problems and front brake rotor problems. The chevy has had more trans problems under heavy towing conditions, If you choose the chevy plan on installing an external trans cooler to help resolve this issue.
