After you examine the differences here, you can decide for yourself and arrange a test drive at Collierville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR).
In the Ram 2500, a standard 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine appears under the hood and an 8-speed automatic transmission accompanies this engine. It generates a best-in-class 410 horsepower with 429 lb-ft of torque to keep it going.
If you choose the Ford F-250, it includes a standard 6.2L V8 engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission. This engine generates 385 horsepower with 430 lb-ft of torque. So, the torque capability matches up in both trucks, while the horsepower in the Ram tops the Ford.
With the Ram and the 6.7L engine in place, it will tow a maximum of 19,680 pounds. The Ford tows up to 15,000 pounds with the standard 6.2L engine.
A luxe cabin may be just what the doctor ordered, and the Ram 2500 delivers, with available leather seating in the front row. If you prefer cloth, it comes standard for this truck. In the back seat, choose an available seating option like a vinyl heavy-duty bench seat for easy clean-up, a cloth bench seat, or a premium cloth bench seat.
The Ford F-250 only comes with vinyl seating, which works fine if you don’t want to risk spilling anything in the back. If you plan to tote along a messy drop cloth or other items that may leave debris behind, it may be good for your purposes.
As for dashboard tech, the Ram outdoes the Ford with its available Uconnect® 12.0-inch Display with Navigation, which is the largest you can get in this class. From that screen, you can switch from sports to music and listen to the bold sounds issuing from every cabin angle with the 17-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Sound system.
The available SYNC® 3 system can be used for entertainment and navigation through a much smaller 8-inch touchscreen, which appears in the Ford F-250 dashboard. You can also input directions or adjust the bass on your favorite songs through the optional 10-speaker B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen.
While both pickup trucks give you plenty of storage space, the Ram 2500 provides you with the option of the class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System.
Lockable storage containers anchor either side of the truck and can be drained if you stash wet items inside. The Ford F-250 does not include an organizational tool like this.
When you start searching for a truck like the Ram 2500 and the Ford Super Duty F-250, comparing their features gives you more to consider.
