Do you want a truck that makes other drivers say, “Wow!” when you cruise by with a large toy in tow? The Ram 2500 and the Ford F-250 have long been leaving passersby speechless and in awe of their grandeur and strength. Which truck is the more powerful of the two?
Get around with ease when loaded with a trailer, heading off the beaten path, or down the length of the highway with the powerful engine under your truck’s hood. The Ram 2500 has two engines: the 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine and the optional 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engine.
While Ford has two gas engines and one diesel engine, we see that even if you just take Ram at its base value, it offers one heck of a kick…
Ram 2500 Base Engine
Ford F-250 Base Engine
|6.4L HEMI® V8 engine||Engine||6.2L V8 engine|
|410 horsepower||Horsepower||405 horsepower|
Although the difference is slight, the base engine of the 2023 Ram 2500 kicks you ahead of the game with its horsepower. Enjoy the extra “oomph” you’ll get when you load up with Ram.
At their base trims, both the Ram and the Ford prove their brute strength. However, when equipped with its standard powertrain, the Ram 2500 can pull more weight than the Ford F-250. How much?
Both trucks can tow a large boat or a camping trailer with that much pulling power. However, if you have a larger item at home, look to the Ram 2500 to get the job done.
What’s one thing trucks have that other cars don’t? A cargo bed! This useful space can take your work and play games to the next level. However, only one of these trucks has an additional smart storage solution. Which one could it be?
On either truck, you have the option of a power liftgate so you can lower the tailgate without having to manhandle it—perfect when you’re loading up armfuls of cargo.
Plus, either truck’s tailgate feature includes a button on the key fob or in the cab, allowing you to open or close the tailgate from inside or outside the cabin.
Looking for extra storage spots? Check out the 2023 Ram 2500's optional RamBox® Cargo Management System. You’ll be able to store your tools, cargo, or any other knick-knacks safe and sound. Since the compartments are drainable, they can even function as your on-the-go cooler during the next football tailgate!
The Ram’s feature includes two boxes built into the exterior of the utility bed. It can be used as whatever you need. The Ford goes without a similar system; however, you will find tie-down hooks in the cargo bed, allowing you to secure any work textiles or a new home appliance. If you need space for tools or smaller work gear, the Ram 2500 has extra storage room for you.
Trucks are capable of anything. From towing heavy loads to being your mobile office, the Ram 2500 and the Ford F-250 will help you get any job done. Go on, slide into their driver-centric cockpits to see what technology awaits.
Next, let's look at what kind of technology we've got inside the cabin of these powerhouse pickups. Both trucks allow you to access all your apps, contacts, media, and more with their optional 12-inch touchscreens, the largest size available on the Ram 2500 and the Ford F-250.
Although they share the same size, what differentiates these touchscreens is their orientation. The Ram 2500 opts for a portrait-style 12-inch display that looks and functions like your very own smartphone. On the other hand, the Ford F-250 sticks to the classic landscape format. Which do you prefer?
The 2023 Ram 2500 can also help you see out the back of your truck more clearly. The available Digital Rearview Mirror turns your rearview mirror into a live feed of the back of your truck. Plus, when paired with the available exterior mirror cameras, this mirror can show you the left and right side of your trailer.
Other than an available 360-Degree Trailer Camera Package, drivers in the Ford go without any further bells and whistles to make your view clearer.
Now that you know a bit more about how the 2023 Ram 2500 and the Ford F-250 compare and what they can bring to the Brighton, Howell, and Swartz Creek, MI areas, which one will you drive next time you're on a job?
