When you have a job to do at work, you need a truck that will work just as hard as you do. For every heavy job, there is a heavy-duty truck out there do get it done. Vachon Ford wants to help you decide which truck works best for you, the Ford F-250 or the Ram 2500.

Engine Performance:


The engine is the heart-and-soul of your car. Every job must start with a powerful engine. The size and strength of your engine can determine how much your truck can pull. If you need to pull a rig for the worksite or a boat for the weekend, your engine is everything.


Ford F-250 Super Duty: When it comes to engine power, the F-250 has plenty of reason to brag. The F-250 starts with a 385-horsepower V8 gas engine. Level up to the top trim Limited edition and you'll find a robust 6.7-liter V8 diesel that cranks out 450-horsepower. Take your pick between rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, Crew Cab or Super Cab. The F-250 comes in six trim levels but 36 different configurations.


Ram 2500: The Ram 2500 starts with an impressive 410-horsepower 6.4-liter V8 engine. Or upgrade to the diesel engine. It kicks out just 370-horsepower from it 6.7-liter I-6.

Towing Capacity


When you need to get the job done, towing capability and payload are important things to consider. The Ford F-250 can out-haul any of its competitors. Consider a truck's payload and towing capacity to see what it is capable of pulling behind it.
