When the time comes to upgrade your light-duty pickup with a more powerful model, you should look first to top brands like RAM and Ford. Both automakers produce various heavy-duty versions of their flagship light-duty trucks—but if your choice is between the F-250 or RAM 2500, which one should you take home to Seattle? In this guide from Universal Auto Group, we’ll be comparing the RAM 2500 vs. Ford F-250 towing capacities, engine options, and other features side-by-side to help you make the call!



RAM 2500 vs. Ford F-250: Engines & Towing

You’re looking into a heavy-duty pickup—so it goes without saying that torque, horsepower, and towing features are among your chief concerns. Both the Ford F-250 and the RAM 2500 can tow up to 20,000 pounds when properly equipped with their respective diesel engine options, but it’s worth keeping in mind that the RAM 2500 has a higher gas-powered towing capacity: 17,540 pounds, versus 15,000 pounds for the F-250’s top gasoline engine. Compare the specs below to see whether the F-250 or RAM 2500’s engines will deliver the power you need on the job in Tacoma:

2022 RAM 2500 Engine Options

  • 6.7L Cummins I6 Turbo Diesel Engine: 370 hp, 850 lb-ft of torque
  • Heavy-Duty 6.4L HEMI V8 Engine: 410 hp, 429 lb-ft of torque

2022 Ford F-250 Engine Options

  • 6.2L V8 Gas Engine: 385 hp, 430 lb-ft of torque
  • 7.3L V8 Gas Engine: 430 hp, 475 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel Engine: 475 hp, 1,050 lb-ft of torque

RAM 2500 vs. Ford F-250: Standard & Optional Amenities

Even though capability is clearly front-of-mind for many heavy-duty truck buyers, comfort and convenience features will have a major impact on your productivity once you actually get to work. The RAM 2500 leaves little to be desired in this department with its driver-centered interior design and quality cabin materials. You can even expect a few standard features that are harder to access on the F-250:

  • The RamBox Cargo Management System
  • Standard Aux Port
  • Proximity Key
  • ParkSense® Front and Rear Park Assist
  • Adaptive Forward Lighting

F-250 or RAM 2500: Which is Right for You?

All in all, the RAM 2500 delivers a balance of phenomenal power on the job and refinement inside the cabin. Although the Ford F-250 has many of the same benefits for South Hill drivers, the RAM 2500 notches a win with its wider variety of standard features and more powerful gasoline engine.
