2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD vs. 2017 Ford F-250 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford F-250 than in the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD. The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Ford F-250.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD or the Ford F-250, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and the Ford F-250 have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Ford F-250.

Handling
The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford F-250, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
