My 2018 Silverado rides more comfortably than my 2005 F150 but I don't think it's because it's a newer truck. The F150 rode rougher even when new than the 2004 Silverado I traded for it. The 04 Silverado got hit twice in a year is why I even traded at all and I thought I'd try the F150. I think maybe the F150 was built more for work and the Silverados (1/2 ton 1500) more for basic transportation. I don't know.
