Settle Between the 2017 Ford F-250 and the Ram 2500 with Ease

If you're on the hunt for a pickup truck to confidently navigate through Green Bay, Howard and Ashwaubenon, there are a handful of models that can fulfill your needs to varying degrees of power and success. Our Ford F-Series of trucks offers light-weight, high-strength trucks in each of the available market segments, with the Ford F-250 striking a balance between the F-150 half-ton truck and the F-350 full-ton truck, with three-quarter-tons of brawn to utilize and take care of more difficult tasks. The rival Ram 2500 operates the same way, but the F-250 is able to stand out both blatantly and subtly from the competitor - let's jump into what really sets these two trucks apart.

2017 Ford F-250:

  • Strength and Performance: With its 2017 iteration, the F-250 provides its drivers with two available powertrains that will certainly impress in their own right. The standard option is the 6.2-liter V8 that can produce 385-horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, making it an excellent and accessible choice for most truck owners. If you're not like most truck owners, the available 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel V8 will surely take your breath away - complete with a peak of 440-horsepower and the best-in-class 925 pound-feet of torque. As a result, you'll be able to tow up to 18,000 pounds with the F-250's proven knack for power.
  • Standard and Available Features: If you're interested in the Ford F-250, you'll be able to stake a claim with one of its six different trim levels: XL, STX, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum. Whichever you end up choosing can come in any of the three different cab styles and flatbed lengths. Among some of our favorite features in the F-250 are the Adaptive Steering and Driver Assistance Technologies, with the former included to simplify navigation through tighter spaces and make towing much more of a breeze. The latter takes this a step further with the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System, offering a 360 degree view of the truck via its seven equipped cameras.

2017 Ram 2500:

  • Strength and Performance: The Ram 2500 includes an extra powertrain into its selection, of which its base 5.7-liter Hemi V8 kicks things off with its 383-horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. While that and the available 6.4-liter V8 can best the base level engine in the F-250, the latter doing so with 410-horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, none of the Ram 2500's engines come close to the F-250's 6.7-liter V8. Not even the top-tier 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel 6-cylinder of the Ram 2500 stands a chance with its 370-horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque - providing a towing capacity of only 13,900 pounds for its owners.
  • Standard and Available Features: While the Ram 2500 strives to offer a complete package that can compete with the F-250, its seven trim levels aren't able to include the same level of navigation and handling precision. With the available Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, Limited and Power Wagon, it can certainly be a lot easier to be misunderstand what each includes that it is to find features that can wholly compare to those in the F-250.
