Drivers looking for the best heavy-duty truck may be interested in one of the models in this 2018 Ford F-250 vs 2018 Ram 2500 comparison. Both of these models offers more towing and hauling power than their respective light-duty models. Whether commercial shoppers are looking for a hard-working truck, or drivers with larger towing demands want an engine with serious power, one of these models can help. We like the 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty for its bold engine options and extremely attractive available features.
First of all, the 2018 Ford F-250 can offer between 12,500 and 18,500 pounds of trailering capability, depending on the engine chosen and the towing method. While a Ram truck can also offer practical towing chops, the 2018 Ram 2500 tops out at 17,980 pounds. The engine and capability option that drivers ultimately choose will change how much either of these trucks can tow.

Engine Options and Elite Features of the 2018 Ford F-250SD
The engine options in this 2018 Ford F-250 vs 2018 Ram 2500 comparison are competitive, but the Ford truck takes the lead whether drivers are looking for a high-output standard gas engine or a diesel powertrain. The base 6.2-liter V-8 gasoline engine on the Ford model offers slightly more horsepower and torque than the base gasoline engine on the 2018 Ram 2500, though the Ram has an advanced 6.4-liter V-8 gasoline option available that provides more horsepower and torque. When it comes to diesel engines, the 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty definitely has the advantage in both horsepower and torque. That pays off when it comes to towing and hauling.
While the engines on the 2018 Ford F-250 can turn heads, we also appreciate some of the features available on the Ford truck that you can’t get on the Ram option. Both trucks are available with luxury features on elite trim levels, but drivers looking for safety features like blind spot monitoring will have to opt for the Ford truck. There are no crash prevention features available on the 2018 Ram 2500, and very few digital assistance advantages beyond backup camera assitance.
