2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty vs 2018 Ram 2500

While your standard full-size pickup offers enough power for most regular jobs, not every individual or family has regular vehicle demands. When the towing gets tough, the tough get towing with a heavy duty truck. The two models in this 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty vs 2018 Ram 2500 comparison are designed for the regular, larger-than-usual towing needs of families or small businesses. When that trailer or boat is just a little to large to handle with a light-duty vehicle, these models step up to the challenge.

Both the 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty and the 2018 Ram 2500 offer quality driving, but drivers looking for a premium and confident handling experience may want to opt for the Ford Super Duty. Its base 6.2-liter V-8 is rated for 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, which slightly more power and significantly more torque than is available with the Ram heavy duty. The 6.7-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel V-8 on the Ford also offers 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque.
