Compare Ford Superduty vs. Chevy and RAM

Ford F-Series Superduty trucks have the power you need

You may not think of a heavy-duty truck having features like custom camelback two-toned leather seats, premium stitched-steering wheels or finished dark ash wood trim interior but heavy-duty trucks are now like working more out of a luxury office space than a basic work truck.

The Ford F-Series Superduty truck has long been one of the leaders making a truck that works hard but also brings an unmatched level of comfort to the Merrillville truck buyer. It can handle getting the crew to worksite as well as your family and your boat to Gary and the shores of Lake Michigan and you rest assured everyone will enjoy the ride.

Model & Trim Levels:

Ford Superduty trucks come in 18 different model and trim levels ranging from a single-cab F-250 to the Superduty F-450 Limited which may be the most powerful pickup ever made. RAM trucks offer a 2500 or 3500 model with six trim levels while the Chevrolet Silverado also comes with a 2500 or 3500 model. So we know that you can find the right new Ford Superduty, no matter which job you decide to tackle next.

Powertrain:

Ford is the only heavy-duty truck manufacturer that designs and builds its own diesel engine and transmission to ensure the powertrain works effortlessly with all chassis components and vehicle calibrations. The Ford F-Series Super Duty lineup comes with the choice of two great engines. The Ford F-250 and Ford F-350 come with a standard 6.2-liter V8 FFV engine that generates 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The Ford F-450 features a standard 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine with 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque. Both of these engines are paired with a TorqShift heavy-duty six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.

The Silverado has a 6.0-liter V-8 engine with 360 horsepower and  six-speed automatic transmission. There is an optional 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V8 that generates 445 horsepower, but Ford is still the torque leader with 925 pound-feet compared to the Silverado's 910 pound-feet.

The Ram Heavy Duty has a 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine with 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque standard in all models except the Power Wagon which comes with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. Also available is a 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 engine with 350 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque.

 

Towing:

When it comes time to tow, weather it be equipment and gear for work or pleasure, there's a Ford Superduty built for every job.
