Should You Choose the F-250 or the RAM 2500?

Choosing between the Ford F-250 and the RAM 2500 for your heavy-duty truck needs on Redbluff job sites? While the Ford F-250 or RAM 2500 are both appealing options, the RAM 2500 displays its greater strengths in the following ways:

  • Greater available V6 horsepower
  • Standard cruise control and other exclusive features
  • Class-exclusive suspension systems


Comparing Engine Options

The 2018 RAM 2500 offers you a choice between three high-powered engine options — the 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty only gives you two choices. Compare these engines side by side in the categories of horsepower and pound feet of torque:

  • 2018 RAM 2500
    • 6.7L Cummins I6 Turbo Diesel Engine
      • Horsepower: 370 hp
      • Torque: 800 lb-ft
    • Heavy-Duty 6.4 HEMI V8 Engine
      • Horsepower: 410 hp
      • Torque: 429 lb-ft
    • 5.7L HEMI V8 Engine with VVT
      • Horsepower: 383 hp
      • Torque: 400 lb-ft
  • 2019 Ford F-250
    • 6.2L V8 Gas Engine
      • Horsepower: 385 hp
      • Torque: 430 lb-ft
    • 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel
      • Horsepower: 450 hp
      • Torque: 935 lb-ft

Comparing Standard and Available Features

As with all heavy-duty trucks, both of these options give you features you won’t find on their lighter duty counterparts. However, on top of the obvious difference in features, the RAM 2500 has an additional range of offerings you can’t get on Ford’s heavy duty truck:

  • The RAM 2500 boasts a standard six-speaker sound system; the F-250 only has four speakers.
  • The class-exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System provides storage in the bed rails of your truck; Ford doesn’t offer a similar feature in the F-250.
  • The RAM 2500 glides over rough terrain thanks to the class-exclusive available rear auto-leveling air suspension; again, Ford has nothing that compares.
  • Even with the RAM 2500’s standard standard five-link coil rear suspension, you’re getting a class exclusive that the F-250 cannot match.
