The experts at Bill Knight Ford decided to compare the 2015 Ford F-150 to the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado to show which areas the F-150 trumps the Silverado.
If you’re looking for a heavy-duty truck that will be able to handle anything, come to Bill Knight Ford in the Tulsa, Bixby, Broken Bow and Jenks area. Being the #1 Ford dealer in Oklahoma, we have the largest selection of F-150’s to choose from.
Hauling and Towing
One of the main reasons anyone buys a truck is to use it for hauling and towing. Ford doesn’t lie when it says its Ford trucks are “built tough.” The 2015 Ford F-150 might just be the toughest truck yet. Ford just announced that the new F-150 can tow up to 12,200 lbs and can haul up more than 3,300 lbs in its bed, an upgrade from the 2014 model.
The Chevrolet Silverado can’t beat the F-150’s max towing load. The F-150 can tow 200 more pounds than the Silverado and carry 1,280 more pounds!
The F-150 has a considerably large amount of space compared to the Silverado. The cargo volume of the F-150 bed is 62.3 ft. compared to the Silverado’s 53.4 ft. With the F-150, you also get more leg, head and shoulder room inside the cabin.
Price is often one of the deciding factors when buying a vehicle. The Ford F-150 is at a lower price than the Chevrolet Silverado. You are ultimately paying more for less truck with the Silverado because the F-150 can haul more and has more space. The F-150 also offers all of the same features as the Silverado.

Many were left stranded and unprepared after the brutal winter we experienced last year. If you live in the Jenks, Broken Bow, Bixby and Tulsa area, get ready to see an average of 13 inches of snow this winter! That’s why we decided to talk to our maintenance professionals here at Bill Knight Ford to give you the best tips to winterize your car and keep you from getting left in the snow this winter.
How many times have you overestimated the power of your car during a snow storm? How many times did that overestimation leave you stranded on the side of the road? That’s why we recommended you pack a winter kit for your car. In the event you get stuck in the ice or snow, pack a light bag with:
a change of clothes
a pair of winter boots
Always make sure you have a full or near-to-full tank of gas. If you’re one of those drivers who waits until you are on E before refilling your tank, you might want to change that habit entering the winter months. During the harsh winter season, condensation can build on the walls of your gas tank. If your gas level is low, water can drip into the tank and freeze in the fuel lines. This can be extremely harmful to your car and the repairs can be costly. Not to mention, if you get stranded, you will always want a full tank of gas so that you can keep your car running to keep warm.
Check Your Car
Be sure to check your oil and coolant levels, belts and hoses, battery and tire pressure. The winter months can be harsh on all of these areas of the car. Hoses and belts can crack and break in cold temperatures so it’s wise to have a mechanic take a look under the hood. The life of your battery is also important as you don’t want to break down in the frigid weather. Also, be aware that tires need to have more air in the winter allowing you to gain more traction.

King Ranch isn’t just a premium trim on some of Ford’s vehicles — it’s actually a real-life ranch in South Texas, and it’s one of the world’s largest at that. Spanning 1,289 square miles (825,000 acres), King Ranch is larger than the entire state of Rhode Island, which comes in at just 1,214 square miles.
Richard King, a river pilot, founded King Ranch on July 25, 1853, when he purchased 15,500 acres in what’s now Kingsville, Texas, for $300. He sold half-interest in the land to his partner, a captain in the Texas Rangers named Gideon “Legs” Lewis. King and Lewis continued to purchase ranches around the area, and amassed more than 1.2 million acres at most. Continue reading →
