Comparison Review

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD offers passengers in its extended cab about the same head- and legroom as the Ford F-250. 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.

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 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. Both the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and the Ford F-250 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is much wider than the Ford F-250, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Ford F-250.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Ford F-250.

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD has a larger turning radius than the Ford F-250, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD is clearly the choice over the Ford F-250 for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD has a little less horsepower than the Ford F-250.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD as you will the Ford F-250. You'll be able to haul more material in the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD than the Ford F-250, due to its significantly greater cargo capacity.

The Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford F-250.
