2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD vs. 2015 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 3500HD. The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD 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). The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is somewhat more expensive than the Ford F-250. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD costs less to deliver to the dealership than the Ford F-250.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD is about the same width as the Ford F-250. If you go with the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford F-250.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Ford F-250.

Handling
The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford F-250, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD as you will the Ford F-250. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of lumber or gardening supplies into the bed of the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD as you will with the Ford F-250.
