2016 Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD vs. 2017 Ford F-250 Review

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.

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 3500HD or the Ford F-250, it's going to cost you about the same.
