Ford F-250 vs the Competition

When you need a pickup truck that can handle almost anything, Ford offers their SuperDuty line. The 2018 Ford F-250 is rugged, reliable, and will not let you down. So, what makes the 2018 Ford F-250 such a great pick? After all, there are many competing models out there, such as the Chevrolet Silverado 2500, GMC Sierra 2500, and the Ram 2500. While there are many competitors, the 2018 Ford F-250 is the superior truck. Here are just a few reasons why:

 

Ford F-250 vs Chevrolet Silverado 2500

  • The standard 6.2-liter V8 engine in the 2018 Ford F-250 provides 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The standard 6.0-liter V8 engine in the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 only puts out 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.
  • The 2018 Ford F-250 also offers an available turbocharged 6.7-liter diesel V8, which generates 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque. The available turbocharged 6.6-liter diesel V8 in the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 generates 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque. That's not bad, but it's still less than what Ford gives you.
  • When properly equipped, the 2018 Ford F-250 can tow up to 18,500 pounds, and can carry up to 4,250 pounds. The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 has a maximum tow rating of 18,100 pounds, and a maximum payload of 3,534 pounds.
  • The body of the 2018 Ford F-250 is made of a powerful yet lightweight military-grade aluminum alloy. This reduces weight without sacrificing any power, and allows the engine to devote more power to carrying your gear. The body of the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 is made from heavy steel.

Ford F-250 vs GMC Sierra 2500

  • The 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 can tow up to 18,100 pounds, and can carry up to 3,381 pounds.
  • The 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 has a standard 6.0-liter V8, which generates 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque; less than the standard engine in the 2018 Ford F-250.
  • Like the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, the 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 also offers an available turbocharged 6.6-liter diesel V8 capable of producing 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque.
  • The 2018 GMC Sierra 2500 has a heavy steel body.
 

Ford F-250 vs Ram 2500

  • A properly-equipped 2018 Ram 2500 can only tow up to 17,980 pounds, or carry up to 3,990 pounds. Ford gives you the power you need. When you want some serious power in your pickup, there's no one out there like Ford.
  • The 2018 Ford F-250 offers available safety technologies such as forward collision warning with emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Neither of these are available on the 2018 Ram 2500. Ford helps keep you safe on the road.
  • The standard engine in the 2018 Ram 2500 is a 5.7-liter V8, which gives out 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Ford gives you more power right out of the gate.
  • The diesel option in the 2018 Ram 2500 is a turbocharged 6.7-liter six-cylinder, which only gives you 370 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque. When you want some real power under the hood, Ford stands out from the rest.
  • Like the other competitors, the 2018 Ram 2500 is weighed down by its heavy steel body.
