Compare Ford Super Duty Trucks to Ram Heavy Duty Trucks

At Ourisman Ford of Manassas, you're able to find a wide range of new Ford commercial vehicles for sale at our dealership. These are what allow businesses and fleets to grow and get the job done, while selected Ford Super Duty choices like the F-250 and F-350 are available for your everyday drive at the dealership as well. Many count on Ford to deliver power and capability with its powerful trucks, and that's exactly what you'll find here.

For many, it's important to compare truck brands against one another. We can assist with that as well, as we offer plenty of side-by-side comparisons of the Ford Super Duty to other truck brands, such as the Ram Heavy Duty lineup. It's here where you can compare each one and learn how Ford has lots of advantages over the Ram truck lineup!


Comparing the Ford Super Duty and Ram Heavy Duty starts with performance. Both the F-250 and F-350 have the same engine choices, and the same is true of the Ram 2500 and the Ram 3500. You'll also find that there are similar options higher up for commercial vehicle use that includes chassis cab for each. Under the hood, the trucks offer the following:

Ford Super Duty Engine Options

  • 6.2-liter V8 with 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque
  • 7.3-liter V8 with 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque
  • 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel V8 with 475 horsepower and 1,050 pound-feet of torque

Standard 6.2-liter options use a six-speed automatic transmission while the others offer a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Ram Heavy Duty Engine Options

  • 6.4-liter V8 with 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque
  • 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel I6 with 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque
  • 6.7-liter turbocharged high-output diesel I6 with 420 horsepower and 1,075 pound-feet of torque

While the Ram Heavy Duty trucks can offer more standard horsepower, and a high-output diesel adds more torque, across the board, the Ford Super Duty has more powerful and diverse options to choose from so you can find the ideal fit for your power and performance needs.


You should be able to expect plenty of towing and payload capacity from both truck brands, and with the Ford Super Duty, you'll find more than enough for all types of hauling and towing. The Super Duty has available best-in-class conventional towing with a maximum rating of 21,000 pounds when well-equipped. Its diesel option delivers 24,200 pounds of towing, which is more than any other heavy duty pickup truck. There's also room for available 37,000 pounds of gooseneck towing with the right option on Ford Super Duty models.

For comparison, the Ram Heavy Duty lineup sees standard towing of 18,210 pounds, with diesel towing of 22,670 pounds. As for payload, the Ford Super Duty once again has best-in-class numbers as it can attain a maximum payload of 7,850 pounds with the right truck and setup. The Ram Heavy Duty checks in at a respectable 7,680 pounds, but it cannot beat the Ford Super Duty.
