The Ford Superduty vs. a New Chevy Heavy Duty


If you spend a lot of your time hauling heavy materials and bulky equipment to and from worksites, you need a full-size heavy-duty pickup truck that can keep up. A good truck has enough strength to manage your heavy lifting, but a great truck has both the brawn and the skill to do every job as efficiently as possible. The Ford Super Duty certainly has enough sheer power and smart features to get your toughest work done, but how does it fare when competitors stand up to challenge it? We compared the Ford Super Duty with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD and found the Super Duty to be the better worksite companion.


For many drivers, a pickup truck's worth is measured by how much it can haul. While both trucks boast Olympian strength, the Chevy Silverado 2500HD lags behind the Ford Super Duty when both are properly configured. Both trucks offer useful features such as Tow/Haul Mode and Hill Start Assist to help you manage your loads, but the Ford Super Duty comes out on top in terms of what it can actually carry.

Ford Super Duty
  • Max conventional towing capacity of 21,000 pounds
  • Max payload of 7,630 pounds
  • Up to 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque with 6.7L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel V8 engine option
Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
  • Max conventional towing capacity of 14,500 pounds
  • Max payload of 3,534 pounds
  • Up to 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque with diesel engine


The Ford Super Duty is unique in that instead of using heavy steel body like the Chevy Silverado 2500HD, it possesses a high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body. This grants the Ford Super Duty incredible durability and allows some of the saved weight to be redistributed elsewhere like its high-strength steel frame to make this truck extra tough and extra strong. When you need a truck to not only get your work done, but also hold up for the long haul, the Ford Super Duty is built to last.
