You're a busy Pennsylvanian with a lot of work to do. So, you need a truck that can keep up with your pace, such as what you can find with the powerful lineups Ram and Ford offer. Which one will you choose when it's time to get things done in Lewisburg, Sunbury, and Danville, PA, though?

That's what the team at Blaise Alexander Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT (CDJRF) of Lewisburg is here to help you figure out. Check out our 2022 Ram 2500 vs. Ford F-250 heavy-duty pickup comparison, then contact the team at our dealership to give either of these trucks a try for yourself.

Ram 2500 vs Ford F-250 Towing Capacity

If you're looking for a pickup, then clearly you need a vehicle that can tow. The Ram 2500 and Ford F-250 are on the same page, both peaking around a maximum conventional towing capacity of 20,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Whether you're hauling around lumber to build a treehouse or packing up the camper for a family vacation, you'll be set.

They also both come with available rearview camera systems that can make it easier to align your hitch and trailer for a simple hookup. While you're on the road, you can take advantage of either model's optional 360-degree camera system, giving you a clear view of the world around you as you drive, including the trailer you have attached.

What about when you're attaching the trailer? That's where the Ram 2500 goes a step above with its unique features. Just take a look at the available Auto-Level Rear Air Suspension.

This adaptive suspension includes a Bed Lowering Mode that brings the suspension to its lowest position for easier trailer hook-up. This may make hitching up more convenient in the Ram vs. the Ford.

Supercharged Gasoline and Diesel Engines

Get around with ease when loaded with a trailer, off the beaten path, or down the length of the highway with the powerful engine under your truck's hood. The Ram 2500 has two engines: the 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine and the optional 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engine.

While Ford has two gas engines and one diesel engine, we see that even if you just take Ram at its base value, it offers one heck of a kick:

While both engines are evenly matched for the strength of their torque, we see that the base engine of the 2022 Ram 2500 kicks you ahead of the game with its horsepower. Enjoy the extra "oomph" that you'll get when you load up with Ram.

Advanced Cargo Beds to Help You Out

Enjoy the benefits of this pickup truck when you load up the cargo bed. On either truck, you have the option of a power liftgate so that you can lower the tailgate without having to manhandle it-perfect for when you're loading up armfuls of cargo.

Looking for extra storage spots? Check out the 2022 Ram 2500 truck bed's optional RamBox® Cargo Management System, or the BoxLink™ system in the Ford F-250. Store your tools, cargo, or any other knick-knacks safe and sound in this exterior box.

You can also enjoy exterior lighting so that you can see what you're doing when the sun goes down. Need to inflate a tire, or want to charge your phone in the truck bed? Take advantage of the USB ports located right in the bed of the Ram 2500!

Interior Technologies: Ram vs Ford

Next, let's look at what kind of technology we've got inside the cabin of these powerhouse pickups. Both trucks include an available touchscreen display in the center stack that connects you to your media. They also include smartphone connectivity through available features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Access all your apps, contacts, media, and more with the optional 12-inch touchscreen, the largest size available on the Ram 2500 and the Ford F-250.

Always find your way when you take advantage of optional navigation systems, which, on the Ram 2500, includes an Off-Road Pages feature on your dashboard. Keep your focus ahead of you while also following the helpful 3D display of directions.

The 2022 Ram 2500 can also help you see out the back of your truck more clearly. The available Digital Rearview Monitor turns your rearview mirror into a video feed of the view out of your back window when activated.

Drivers in the Ford, on the other hand, have an optional self-dimming rearview mirror, but without any further bells and whistles to make your view clearer.

Enjoy Your Truck's Cabin

The cabins for either truck will prove exceedingly comfortable; ideal for when you're putting in long miles. With an adjustable driver seat standard on both trucks, you can sit pretty on your commutes.

Plus, the further you upgrade your cabin, the more comfortable your rides can become. Enjoy the optional leather seats and accessories that are available with either truck, so that you can feel like royalty no matter where the road takes you.

Breathe easy inside of the Ram 1500 with its exclusive air filtration system. Kick up all the dirt, dust, and gravel you want in your nice old truck-95% of the pollutants are being kept out with this advanced system, meaning your cabin air will stay as clean as a whistle.

Active Safety Features in the Ram 2500 and Ford F-250

Safety is important, and the Ford F-250 and Ram 2500 know that. They both come with available active safety features that act as an extra set of eyes on the road, like:

  • Forward collision monitoring
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane keeping

That's just the start. When you hit the road, available blind spot monitoring will watch your blind spots for other vehicles. This coverage is extended along the length of the trailer in either pickup so that you can change lanes more confidently while towing.

Only the Ram, however, comes the available Adaptive Forward Lighting system. This available system turns your headlights with you up to 15 degrees as you come around a bend. This will help keep you aware of other vehicles or animals crossing the road when travelling along a winding road at night, one-upping what the Ford can provide.
