2014 Ford F-250 vs. 2014 RAM 2500 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Ford F-250 offers passengers in its extended cab about the same head- and legroom as the RAM 2500. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford F-250 and the RAM 2500.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford F-250 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the RAM 2500. 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 Ford F-250 and the RAM 2500 have similar Destination Charges.

The Ford F-250 is about the same width as the RAM 2500. When looking at overall length, the Ford F-250 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the RAM 2500.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the engines of the Ford F-250 and the RAM 2500 are able to equally transmit their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Ford F-250 has a significantly larger turning radius than the RAM 2500, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the RAM 2500 is clearly the choice over the Ford F-250 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford F-250 and the RAM 2500.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Ford F-250 as you will the RAM 2500. The Ford F-250 has a slightly greater cargo capacity for your lumber or other material than the RAM 2500.

The Ford F-250 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the RAM 2500.
