When shopping for a new vehicle, it's important to make sure you do your research. Knowing what competing vehicles have to offer for the price can help you make an informed decision and increase your overall satisfaction. While it's always good to know what you're buying, comparing stats is even more important when you're talking trucks, especially heavy duty ones that you'll be relying on for work. At Friendly Ford of Crosby, we've made doing your due diligence a lot easier by comparing the Super Duty Ford F-250 and the Chevy Silverado 2500. Learn more about these heavy-hauling trucks to see which one is right for you!  

Pickup Performance: Super Duty F-250 vs Chevy Silverado 2500

When you're shopping for a heavy duty truck, one thing is clear-power is important! If towing capacity and payload capacity weren't priorities for you, you'd be shopping for a different vehicle. The Chevy Silverado 2500 is an impressive truck to be sure. With a maximum towing capacity of 18,510lbs, the Silverado 2500 is more than capable of handling most jobs. The Silverado 2500's two engine options also give it a hefty payload capacity, making the Silverado 2500 an all-around great truck.   
However, the latest Ford F-250 has the Silverado 2500 beat in the power and capability department. Instead of two engines, Ford offers three for the F-250, and they mean business. If you choose between Ford's 7.3L OHV gas V8 or the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel, you'll be setting yourself up for best-in-class horsepower, GVWR, payload, and towing. The F-250's stats are maxed out when you opt for the 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel. With 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine can tow 20,000lbs, or up to 22,800lbs with a fifth wheel. If you're looking to tow to your heart's content, buying a 2021 Ford Super Duty will be money well spent!  

Safety Reigns Supreme in the 2021 Ford F-250

Cosmetically and technologically speaking, the Silverado 2500 and the Ford F-250 offer comparable packages. Both trucks offer the same trim levels and technology as their respective 1500 and 150 counterparts. However, with Ford's industry-leading technology and their famous Ford Co-Pilot360 safety system, we give the Ford F-250 the edge in this category as well. This suite of safety features includes pro trailer backup assist, available adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping alert, and much more to keep you on task in your heavy duty hauler. Brains and brawn go hand in hand with the 2021 Ford F-250.
