Both pickups come equipped with standard V8 engines, but the 6.2-liter V8 at the heart of the Ford F-250 generates 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, outperforming the Silverado's 6.0-liter V8 and its 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. Towing and hauling capacity also fall in favor of the F-250, as it boasts both a higher max tow rating and the stronger payload capability.

If you need reliable, consistent power, then the F-250 is the right choice. The standard 6.2-liter V8 F-250 manufactures 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, topping the Ram 2500's standard 5.7-liter HEMI V8 and its output of 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

That power difference shows up when it comes to towing, so if you regularly tow a trailer behind your pickup, you're going to want a Ford F-250 pulling the load. The Ram 2500 has a maximum towing capacity of 12.830 pounds, which pales in comparison to the 15,000 pounds the Ford F-250 Super Duty is rated to tow



The Ford F-250 includes such advanced safety features as Blind Spot Monitoring, while the Ram 2500 doesn't offer much more than a standard backup camera.

Both pickups come with standard amenities like power steering and AM/FM stereo, but the base model Ford F-250 Super Duty also includes front tow hooks, variable speed intermittent wipers, auto-off headlights, a passenger vanity mirror, and a trip computer. To add these amenities to the base Sierra 2500HD, you have to spend more money and add them as options or upgrade to a higher trim level.

New Milford drivers will enjoy the fact that the Ford F-250 Super Duty has driver-assistance features like adaptive cruise control, collision warning with brake support, blind-spot monitoring, an Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera system, and lane departure warning.
