2018 Ram 2500 vs 2018 Ford F-250

Individuals, families, or businesses looking for a confident pickup often need more power than they can get with a full-size, light-duty truck. In this 2018 Ram 2500 vs 2018 Ford F-250 comparison, we are going to look at a couple heavy-duty models that may fit the bill for those with larger towing and hauling needs.

These two models are neck and neck when it comes to base price and powertrain performance. The 2018 Ram 2500 has a starting price that is slightly lower than that of the 2018 Ford F-250. Its standard 5.7-liter V-8 engine offers 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The base 6.2-liter V-8 on the 2018 Ford F-250 has a slight advantage with 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. However, drivers who want more gas engine power can also opt for a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine on the Ram 2500 that cranks out 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. The 2018 Ford F-250 is not available with a second gasoline engine.
