Sometimes a standard-sized pickup truck doesn’t cut it anymore. For the hardest, toughest tasks: you need to get behind the wheel of something with a little extra power and durability. That’s where trucks like the 2016 Ford F-250 and 2016 RAM 2500 come in. Pickups in this class are made for one thing: towing, hauling, and being put to work.

Pitting the 2016 Ford F-250 vs 2016 RAM 2500 makes for a pretty interesting comparison. Both come standard with large gas-powered V8 engines that can be upgraded even further to diesel-powered V8s to increase how much work can get done. With the standard engine, though, you’re already getting a truck that can do quite a bit -- and the RAM 2500 does a pretty good job of keeping up with the F-250 in that regard.
