2019 Ford F-250 vs Chevy Silverado 2500

If you're in the market for a heavy-duty pickup truck, Ford and Chevy both offer models that can help when it comes time to tow or haul gear for work or personal use around Doylestown, Philadelphia, or Warminster.

At first glance, they may seem like similarly built trucks, but our team here at Fred Beans Ford of Doylestown took a closer look at the Ford F-250 vs. Chevy Silverado 2500 to show you what separates these two models.

Which Truck Has the More Powerful Engine?

Although they both may look like powerful trucks on the outside, you'll see a difference in strength when you pop the hood and compare the engines of the 2019 Ford F-250 vs. Chevy Silverado 2500.

Both the 2019 Silverado 2500 and 2019 F-250 Super Duty come powered by V8 engines. The 6.0L V8 engine in the Chevy Silverado 2500 produces 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. The Ford F-250 comes standard with a 6.2L V8 engine, which creates 385 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque.

You can get more power in the Silverado 2500 with the available the 6.6L turbo-diesel V8 engine. This available engine supplies the Chevy Silverado 2500 with 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque.

The Ford F-250 Super Duty on the other hand has an available 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 engine that can deliver even more power. This available turbo-diesel engine will push out 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque.

Carry and Tow Heavy Supplies with the Ford F-250

With its superior engine performance, it's also no surprise that you'll be able to handle more weight with the 2019 F-250 when it comes time to tow or haul gear.

The 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty can be configured to handle a towing capacity of up to 18,500 pounds. This will let you hitch up larger boats, your horse trailer, or equipment to take to worksites. At its best, the 2019 Chevy Silverado will only be able to tow 15,400 pounds.

The 2019 Ford F-250 can also reach a maximum payload capacity of 4,270 pounds. The Chevy Silverado 2500 has a payload that maxes out at 3,276 pounds. This means with the F-250 you can carry more tools in the back of your truck for work, supplies for your next home improvement project, or heavier furniture and appliances for your home, while having a cabin full of passengers.

Technology Features

Each of these trucks also comes with helpful features and technologies to let you stay organized, make efficient use of your time, and easily work out of your truck. You can use each of their rear-view cameras to help you quickly line your hitch up to your trailer.

You can also get in and out of the back of the bed of your truck with the step on each of these models. The available Tailgate Step with Tailgate Assist™ on the 2019 F-250 is much easier to use with its wider base and central location compared to the smaller corner step on the 2019 Silverado 2500.

You'll be able to work out of the bed of your truck even when the sun goes down, too, thanks to the available LED lighting you can get with both trucks. The 2019 F-250 Super Duty also has the available remote tailgate release. This will let you open the tailgate with the simple press of a button on your key fob.
