See How Ford F-250 Bests Its Chevy and GMC Competitors Here at Terry Henricks Ford in Archbold

You're in search of a full-size heavy-duty pickup, but one that's more than your everyday half-ton truck. After all, you've got some of the heaviest trailers around to tow. Perhaps you're a logger, working construction, or even planning a foray into the exploration side of the oil industry down the road. Whatever the job demands, there's only one hauler for it: Ford Super Duty® F-250. It's just back for a new model year, and it's still demonstrating what makes it both "Built Ford Tough" and a leader at the head of the class. Take a look at just a few ways it outdoes both its Chevy Silverado 2500HD and GMC Sierra 2500HD competition.

Ford F-250 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and GMC Sierra 2500HD

  • F-250 features a choice of two engines, a powerful 385-horsepower, 6.2-liter gas V8 and a monster 450-horsepower, 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel. The latter can dish out 935 pound-feet of torque, the kind of turning and pulling power that tops the class. Its Chevy and GMC counterparts also feature a selection of two engines, a Duramax 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8 and a Vortec 6.0-liter V8. However, both are less powerful than the Ford offerings, at 360 and 445 horsepower respectively and capable of only 910 pound-feet of max torque.
  • When it comes to shouldering the weight for the Defiance, OH job roster, F-250 outclasses both Silverado 2500HD and Sierra 2500HD. It supports towing up to 21,000 pounds max by conventional methods, and fifth-wheel and gooseneck hitch support weigh in at 27,500 and 35,000 pounds respectively. F-250 can also lug payloads up to 7,640 pounds, rating it a class best. The competition can only haul up to 14,400 pounds with a Vortec V8, up to 15,400 pounds with Duramax turbo-diesel, and up to 3,276 pounds payload-wise.
  • A solid front axle, standard on all 4x4 models, adds both strength and weight-bearing support for operating aftermarket front-end upfits like snow plows, making F-250 a go-to choice for clearing the drifts around Wauseon. Neither Chevy nor GMC offer this feature.
  • Available Trailer Reverse Guidance uses both cameras located in the side-view mirrors and helpful visual guidelines displayed on your infotainment screen to help you manage backups, even changing the latter to accommodate the movements of your steering wheel. Both Silverado 2500HD and Sierra 2500HD incorporate only a rear-vision camera.
  • A Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System is available in F-250 to assist in keeping an eye on PSI levels via a convenient in-dash display. This feature's not offered in either Silverado or Sierra.
  • Optional Adaptive Steering helps F-250 adjust automatically to your driving situation, whether you're at a low speed (for instance, during parking or backing up your trailer), or cruising the highway. You won't find this feature in either Silverado 2500HD or Sierra 2500HD.
  • F-250 makes driver-assistance features like a BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow available in select trims, providing added situational awareness as you navigate locales like Napoleon, OH. These aren't offered in either competitor's model.
  • You'll find a new Ford F-250 the more affordable choice, costing thousands less than either Silverado or Sierra.
