The Ford F-250 vs. The Ram 2500: Which Heavy-Duty Truck Is Best For You?

Whether you're looking into buying or leasing a new heavy-duty truck for work or play, you want to be certain you're getting the very best. And when it comes to the very best of the heavy-duty truck market in Tehama County, nothing quite measures up to our new Ford F-250 and its rival, the Ram 2500.

Now, both of these pickup trucks are exceedingly capable in their own right, but if you take a close look at what they offer, we think you'll discover that the new Ford F-250 Super Duty has a bit of an edge. Explore our competitive comparison below to learn more about both models, and find the right fit for your lifestyle.

Performance

Power is the defining factor that sets a great truck apart from the rest of the pack. We're happy to report that whether you pick the new Ford F-250 or Ram 2500, you'll find power in spades beneath each truck's hood.

With the new Ram 2500, you'll have your choice between a pair of stout powertrains. The standard 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine churns out up to 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, while the available 6.7-liter Cummins® turbo-diesel unit drops to 370 horsepower but boosts a more than respectable 850 pound-feet of torque.

That being said, if you pop the hood of the new Ford F-250 Super Duty, you'll see that it positively blows the Ram 2500 out of the water with its performance credentials. From the dynamic 385-horsepower 6.2-liter gasoline V8 engine, to the mid-range 430-horsepower gasoline V8 engine, all the way up to a 6.7-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine that boasts up to 1,050 horsepower, the new Ford F-250 Super Duty positively surpasses the Ram 2500 on the performance front, making it the perfect truck for Chico drivers to take to work.

Capability

Ample power is just one factor to consider when choosing your next heavy-duty truck, but it's also worth noting that raw muscle only tells one part of the story in the differences between the new Ford F-250 Super Duty and the Ram 2500.

For example, let's take a look at bed options. Both the Ford F-250 Super Duty and Ram 2500 have a long bed option, but while the Ram 2500 has an 8-foot long bed, the Ford F-250 Super Duty surpasses it with an available 8.2 foot long bed, helping you to haul longer payloads around the greater Red Bluff area.

Additionally, while the new Ford F-250 Super Duty can tow up to 20,000 pounds when properly equipped, the new Ram 2500 tops out at just 19,680 pounds of towing capacity, falling significantly short of the benchmark set by Ford.

Technology

Brains and brawn make a great heavy-duty pickup trucks, and that's where the new Ford F-250 Super Duty really excels. For example, one feature that the new Ford F-250 has that the Ram 2500 lacks is its Pro Trailer Backup Assist system. This innovative technology makes maneuvering with a trailer and even hitching one up an absolute breeze. Combine that with the innovations in the Ford Co-Pilot360™ safety suite and conveniences like a wireless smartphone charging pad and integrated upfitter switches, and it's no struggle to see why so many drivers from Corning choose the Ford F-250 Super Duty over the Ram 2500 year after year.
