New Chevrolet Silverado Ads Aim to Ruffle Ford's Feathers

12-2016-Chevrolet-Silverado-001[2]Full II

A new set of Chevrolet commercials is out and if you thought the last wave of Silverado steel bed ads were a direct attack on the top-selling aluminum Ford F-150, you haven't seen anything yet. The newest advertisements (see videos below) from Chevy target new-truck buyers who might be thinking about purchasing a new Ford half ton or Super Duty.

Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

@papajim. Im commenting on your 2.7. I agree its a good motor but why do I have to remove an air dam before going to work in rough terrain and further I have to remove a bracket near the transmission

--------

You lie.

You are very childish with your remarks! Yes, very few of the trucks do shake, compared to the amount they sell...get over it!!
Ford trucks catch on fire, yet I'm not on here boasting about that! Why don't you take this into consideration!! GM has had the 5.3L since 1999, and the Duramax since 2001..both solid, great engines!! How many has Ford had in that time?? 4.6L, 5.4L both boat anchor engines!!! Now they have the 5.0L and 3.5L which are both car and SUV oriented!! The Super Duty has gone through 7.3L--(great motor), 6.0L, 6.4L--(both junk)!!!, and 6.7L (good motor so far), yet they still can't match the Duramax. You have no argument except...shaky motors or Government motors...so childish...just proves that driving a ford lowers your IQ!!!

@TNTGMC; luv it when I get under the skin these jealous GOVT motor fangirls HAHAHAHA!!!!

But listen, the day shaky GOVT motor's can build more solid trucks that don't rust, shake, centered steering, non-shaky trucks than Ford, then I'll admit it.

Meanwhile, Ford will continue to offer the best looking trucks with the most engine choices, configurations, options and the reason why they will continue to outsell (& outclass) any truck maker out there...hey, 41 yrs & counting....HEHEHEHEH!!!!

@Alex. Not a lie, read the GM and Ford manual

@Lionell. I am not brand loyal but I must say Ford does not offer a midsize truck. GM offers more all around choice to the US consumer. And Toyota, globally leads the truck industry. Ford does sell a nice truck with the best engine choices in the US only in the 1/2 ton segment due to turbo boosting from an initial sell point when its new.

@ Lionel

Again childish comments that hold no value behind them...Still shows how low your IQ is!! And you don't get under my skin because you haven't given facts. I gave you facts on the engines. GM makes the best small block engine and diesel engine out there PERIOD!!! The only other diesel engine that has gone on longer is a Cummings....which is a fantastic motor as well...

Again call them Government motors all you want, but again, FORD took money too!! Are you Ford fanboys to head-strong and ego-statistic to realize this!!! UNREAL...Get over it.

But you continue to drive your trucks and make HAHAHAHAHA comments all day long, because I know that's all you know how to type.

@TNTGMC; re-read your comments, you sound just like your counter-part crybaby looser girlfriends (GMSUCKS aka johnny dumb dumb) or are you the same idiot?!...

Anyways, last I checked this was still a free country & will continue to laugh at your shaky GOVT motor fangirls....here we go; HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

@Rambro; I'm the last person that needs any info w/Ford trucks as probably have more experience than most; grew up w/dad's '56 F100, '74 F100 supercab, '78 Bronco etc until I was old enough to buy my own. Fast forward to today, I still have these in my garage; '04 Lightning, '15 global Ranger (sold my '13 F150). With my love for trucks, I conduct my own personal survey comparing my trucks to others family/friends with all other US truck brands (including Asian mid-sizers). This is how I know for a fact the global Ranger is a much better built truck than any other current Asian mid-sizer (including the wimpy GOVT motor/Isuzu Asian versions). So I am very confident Ford's US version will mop the floor with all current US mid-sizers too...mark my words.

Although my dream truck is still the Raptor, but as it cannot fit it in my garage, I will now wait for the new US Ranger & a mini-Raptor version will be ideal.

Actually I do the same types of surveys but produce completely different results. How odd is that? I believe your surveys are more subjective and biased producing more positive results for your preferred brand. Your approach allows you to ignore common failures within your brand which include but is not limited to the following items. (timing chains, turbos, poor body panel alignment, door latches, spark plugs blowing out of the heads, death wobbles, shaky F-150s, poor fuel economy etc, etc, etc.)

@ Lionel

Yes, thank GOD its a free country! You have absolutely no comebacks when I was describing the engines ford used to offer and does offer now. All you know how to do is call GM shaky motors. Are you of age to be on this site? You type like your 10?? If your not, please get off the site so we "ADULTS" can talk civil amongst each other and not have to try and read your childish, demeaning, ignorant, and belittling comments.

Have a great day!

@TNTGMC; funny you sound exactly like a childish 9 yr old bully with demeaning, ignorant and belittling comments....

Meanwhile I should point out English is not my mother language (3rd actually) so you really should not judge anyone on this site with not so perfect English as you're only proving you're a bigger idiot than we all think. So stay on subject & stick with what you know; shaky GOVT motors trucks...HAHAHAHAHA!!!

@GMSUCKS; I just returned from CAL after a wonderful vacation trip. By design, I rented 4 different crew cab trucks (Cheby 5.3, Nissan's 5.6, RAM 5.7 & F150 2.7 - only one available & unfortunately could not locate a rental outfit that offered Toyota).
So I won't go into details of my personal observations (as you won't trust it anyway) but it confirmed a few things; each brand had it's good/not so good points but my final non-bias conclusion with my family's input; the F150 was definitely the most comfortable & that back seat was almost too roomy.
But in reality, you cannot go wrong with any of them...all great trucks including the cheby (luckily mine didn't shake...this time :-)

Howie Long's previous commercials helped Ford.

GM's GMT K2XX platforms have not aged well and sales are a reflection of that fact.

@ Lionel

Belittling, demeaning, and ignorant comments?? Nothing I said was any of those? I asked you simple (not complex) questions (Easier for you to understand, but obviously they were, my fault I apologize). Yet, again you prove my point!!

I do have a "Masters" in Understanding How the Brain Works! I would gladly take the time to help you figure out yours if you would like? No charge of course!

BTW. I have always stayed on topic with each comment I've posted. You're the one who doesn't. Think about what you're going to type before you type and maybe proof read it also! This will help you tremendously when commenting since English isn't your native language! (Free advice--No Charge!! Take care!!)

@ TNTGMC; here we go again;
Wow, strange a guy who claims to have "Masters" in Understanding How the Brain Works!" is all hyped up, upset defending his truck brand & still continues to belittle/demean others who don't agree.

Also funny how you ignore the similar belittling/demeaning tones from your other GOVT motor girlfriends on this site...

So anyways, suggest to take your meds buddy, calm down; there are far more important issues to worry about like yr president, stay on subject as this is a truck site after all, not Dr. Masters...LOL.


@ Lionel

You proved my point!!!

LOL!!

I'm usually a GM person, but that first ad where the guys shows off the corner step and steel bed, to then rip off the front and reveal the Silverado, is just cringe-inducing. I think these ads are hard to watch because it just feels like you're being sold SO HARD. We get it; you want us to buy and think the other trucks are garbage. OK, but really, just let my brain think for itself...please?

Bought a new Ford every three years since 2001.
Then in 2015 bought a new Silverado.
Well, all I can say, Ford is # 1 for a reason.
You get so... much... more... truck... for the money with Ford.
And who does not want a truck that won't rust out?
Sorry, Chevy but there will be a new 2018 Ford pickup at my house!
Can't wait :)
