Compare the Ford Super Duty and Chevy Silverado 2500HD

At a glance, you might find that pickup trucks seem to have a sameness about them. But when you have work to do and you start looking closely, you find that not all trucks are created equal. That's why it pays to take some time to learn about the key differences between pickups when choosing the right one for your heavy-duty workloads. We pit the Ford Super Duty against the Chevy Silverado 2500HD to see which one came out on top. Here's what we discovered:


When it comes to sheer strength, the Chevy Silverado 2500HD can't quite keep up. Properly configured, the Ford Super Duty has a max conventional towing capacity of 21,000 pounds versus the Silverado 2500HD's 14,500 pounds. The Super Duty also conquers in terms of payload with a max rating of 7,630 pounds against the Silverado 2500HD's 3,534-pound payload rating.


Both trucks offer gas and diesel engine options, but Ford's efforts push the Super Duty ahead on both counts. The Super Duty's 6.2L FFV gas V8 engine provides an impressive 430 pound-feet of torque, setting it above the Silverado 2500HD's 380 pound-feet of torque. Pitting the Super Duty's 6.7L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel V8 engine against Chevy's diesel engine yielded similar results. The Super Duty can crank out up to 935 pound-feet of torque while the Silverado 2500HD falls behind with 910 pound-feet of torque.


The Ford Super Duty features a unique aluminum-alloy body as opposed to steel, making it durable, more dent-resistant, and a warrior against rust. It also makes the truck body lighter, allowing for smarter weight distribution to places like the Super Duty's high-strength steel frame to make this truck tougher and longer-lasting.
