Those in the market for a heavy-duty pickup truck will have a hard time finding a more compelling and capable option than the 2021 Ram 2500. This formidable new pickup sets itself apart from the competition in a crowded segment thanks to its jaw-dropping performance, reliability, and styling. We've taken the opportunity to compare the latest Ram 2500 to one of its super-duty rivals: the 2021 Ford F-250. Off-roaders and regular towers in our home base of Melfort, SK and the nearby areas of Porcupine Plain and Prince Albert can find out why the 2021 Ram 2500 reigns supreme below before visiting us at Riverside Melfort Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for a closer look at our new Ram inventory.


The reviews are in for both the 2021 Ram 2500 and the Ford F-250, and the feedback is glowing, especially for Ram's heavy-duty pickup. Indeed, the new 2500 has earned rave reviews on the strength of a refined, upscale cabin, exceptional towing capacity, and the most riveting ride in its class. The latest Ford F-250, on the other hand, has fielded some respectable reviews of its own thanks to respectable capability and a spacious crew cab. That said, Ford's super-duty truck has also drawn the ire of critics over its expensive upper trims, clunky highway ride, and an interior that lacks the style points of the Ram 2500's.

Ram 2500 vs. Ford F-250: Performance & Reliability

The 2021 Ram 2500 wouldn't be worthy of its heavy-duty seal of approval if it didn't pack some formidable power and capability. This new Ram pickup comes with two available engine options, with each boasting plenty of brawn. The base 6.4-litre HEMI V8 motor packs a solid 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque, while the available 6.7-litre Turbo Diesel offering boasts 370 horses and a jaw-dropping 850 lb-ft of torque. A standard eight-speed automatic transmission provides seamless shifts, and of course, four-wheel drive is available throughout the Ram 2500's six-trim lineup. The results of this awe-inspiring hardware: a dynamic, yet composed ride with all-weather capability.

Formidable power means formidable performance, reliability, and capability, and the 2021 Ram 2500 stands above its rivals in each of these departments. In addition to its riveting ride and generous power, this heavy-duty pickup's towing capacity is worthy of a semi-truck. When powered by its base HEMI V8 motor, the Ram 2500 can haul up to 17,540 pounds, with its diesel option delivering towing of up to 20,000 pounds. In short, tackling tough jobs has never been easier than with the latest 2500. The 2021 Ford F-250, by comparison, offers a base V8 engine that trails the Ram's HEMI in terms of horsepower, and you'll have to splurge on some upgrades to optimize its towing capacity.

Interior & Exterior Design

Swanky it may be, but the 2021 Ram 2500's exterior is every bit as bold and rugged as you'd expect of a heavy-duty pickup. Between its muscular build, standard 17-inch styled steel wheels, and a grille that strikes awe in anyone that lays eyes on it, the Ram 2500 is a sight to behold. On the inside, this pickup separates itself from its class thanks to its available configurations. Between its cab, trim, and interior material options, you can personalize your 2500's cabin in numerous ways. It boasts a clean layout and design, comfortable seating, ample room, and detailing that wouldn't look out of place in a luxury vehicle. As for its Ford rival, the new F-250's ergonomics and dash design are nothing to sneeze at, but its interior trails the Ram 2500's in terms of refinement and available configurations. So does the rest of the segment, for that matter.
