Ford F-250 Super Duty vs. Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

Price

Right off the bat, the F-250 Super Duty comes in at a more attractive price. The F-250 Super Duty features as starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $33,150, while the Silverado 2500HD comes in at $34,400 -- a difference of more than $1,200! When you consider the fact that the base F-250 includes standard features that aren't available on the beginning level Silverado, the value found in the F-150 only increases.

Performance

Both trucks are engineered and built to take on the tough jobs, but the F-250 Super Duty is better equipped for the job. It features a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine that manufactures 285 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, clearly besting the 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque that the Silverado's 6.0-liter V8 manages.

That difference really shows up where it matters most -- the job site. The Ford F-250 Super Duty boasts a maximum gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 10,000 pounds, maximum tow rating of 15,000 pounds and a payload capacity of 4,250 pounds. The Silverado tops out with a GVWR of 9,300 pounds, max towing of 14,500 pounds and a payload capacity of 3,584 pounds.

Features

When it comes to standard features, both trucks are handsomely appointed. However, Ford has added some standard features to the F-250 Super Duty that aren't even available as expensive options for the Silverado, such as variable speed intermittent wipers, auto-off headlights and a trip computer.

There are also options that you can add to the F-250 to make the day go by easier, such as rear parking aid, remote engine start, and a premium sound system, that aren't available at all for the base Silverado. 

Trim Levels

The Ford F-250 Super Duty is available in XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited trim levels, offering customers a world of choices when it comes to finding a truck that best serves their needs. The Silverado 2500HD is only offered in four trim levels.

Safety

Both trucks come with standard safety features like electronic stability control, traction control, and a tire-pressure monitoring system, but the F-250 Super Duty also includes standard brake assist -- something not even offered as an option for the Silverado. When the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducted their proprietary crash tests, both pickups scored similarly on most -- but the Ford F-250 did better in the rollover resistance test.
