At our Torrington location, we have product specialists who are knowledgeable of our Ram truck inventory. From the popular, family-style Ram 1500 up to the heavy-duty lineup that includes the Ram 2500 and 3500 models. If you're familiar with driving Ram trucks, you'll know what you need to tow, carry or support the type of cargo you have. If not, and you're considering switching to the truck body style for the first time, Ram is a great brand to test the Connecticut roads and highways on.

With Ram being one of the four brands Northwest Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram specializes in, it's not the only brand that manufactures heavy-duty trucks like the Ram 2500. Ford manufactures the F-Series that showcases models from the F-150 on to the Ford F-250. Since both the Ram 2500 and Ford F-250 are the start of the heavy-duty line of trucks, they possess certain standards that outrank their predecessors while still exhibiting room to improve in the next Ram 3500 and Ford F-350.

Comparing Heavy-Duty Trucks: Ram 2500 vs. Ford F-250


The deciding factor some drivers use to pinpoint the car or SUV they want comes from the areas of technology, design or safety. However, when it comes to the truck body style, customers tend to consider capability and power above all else. These two characteristics are always a highlight in the Ram inventory, and the Ram 2500 is no exception to this rule. Before you jump into choosing the road of financing or leasing for your future towing device, read about the advantages the Ram 2500 holds over its Ford competitor.

  • Right off the bat, the Ram 2500 comes with seven trim levels (Tradesman®, SLT, Big Horn®, Laramie®, Laramie Longhorn®, Power Wagon® and Limited) over the Ford F-250's six options.
  • The Ram 2500 comes with three engine options over the Ford F-250's two-engine selection, which provides drivers with more choice in towing, torque, payload, and horsepower.
  • When comparing the best non-diesel powertrains in both brands, the Ram's 6.4-liter HEMI® comes out on top with higher horsepower than what Ford's 6.2-liter V8 exudes (410 vs. 385 horsepower).
  • Ram features a class-exclusive RamBox® Cargo Management System that makes its storage bed more sophisticated and convenient regarding packing it full, keeping it well lit, and dividing the bed to make room for different pieces of cargo.
  • The largest touchscreen display option that drivers can take advantage of in the Ram 2500 is 8.4 inches, which surpasses the available eight-inch screen size of the SYNC® 3 in the Ford F-250.
