2015 Ford F-250 vs 2015 Ram 2500
When it comes to the kind of serious towing and hauling that a light duty truck just can't handle, the only option for the discerning worker is a heavy duty truck. Of course then, with the variety of options on the market it's hard to choose which truck may be best. In this 2015 Ford F-250 vs 2015 Ram 2500 comparison we see how one truck offers just enough options right where it counts.
Both of these great trucks are available in multiple trim levels, body styles, and with two or four-wheel drive. The 2015 Ford Super Duty F-250 actually has more choices on configuration, meaning that buyers can get the cabin and bed length that is ideal for the work that needs to be done. The 2015 Ford F-250 offers a regular gas and a diesel engine option, while with the Ram there are a variety of engines that take regular, bi-fuel, and premium gas, and two engine sizes that take diesel. That sounds very impressive until you realize that the standard 385-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine on the Super Duty offers more power than any of the Ram's options except for its 410-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 which takes premium fuel. And that engine is blown out of the water by the 2015 Ford F-250's 6.7-liter V8 with 440 horsepower.
Serious trailering with the 2015 Ford Super Duty F-250
More power from the engine means more towing and hauling capability. Whether you compare the least expensive or most expensive models of these two vehicles, the 2015 Ford F-250 offers a lower curb weight and a higher standard gross vehicle weight rating, which means more payload, more trailering, and more getting the job done. The Ford F-250 has a standard maximum trailer weight 12,200 pounds. The Ram is available with a larger capability, but comes standard with a maximum trailer weight of only 10,620 pounds.
Even when it comes to space considerations, the 2015 Ford F-250 vs 2015 Ram 2500 comparison favors the F-250. Whether you choose the most expensive or the least expensive models, the Ford consistently offers three more cubic feet of passenger space. That may not sound like much, but having that extra room to stretch out can make the difference between a comfortable drive and a cramped and unpleasant experience.
