Trim Level Options in the Ram 2500 and Ford F-250

The Ram 2500 and Ford F-250 recently made a few changes to their trim level options. The Ford F-250 now offers a Limited version, which is a top-of-the-line trim level; however, it doesn't quite deliver on luxury like the Ram 2500.   


The Ram 2500 added the Limited Tungsten to its lineup -- a superior trim level with high quality and premium touches. Ram took the opportunity to make upgrades to the 8.4-inch Uconnect Infotainment interface, which now gives drivers access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot, to keep you connected while on the go.   

Inside, you'll find premium soft-touch materials, which makes for a luxurious driving experience. Choose from premium leather options like the Natura Plus in various hues like Frost, Indigo, and more, to make your Ram 2500 truly unique.  

Power: Ram 2500 vs. the Ford F250

The legendary 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 engine offers a max diesel towing limit of 17,980 pounds and a max diesel torque of 800 pound-feet. It's 6.4L HEMI V8 engines offers a best-in-class 410 gas horsepower and an impressive 429 pound-feet of torque, providing you with all of the power you need. Rest assured, you can take on any terrain with this heavy-duty powerhouse.

Compare Features & Options of the Ram 2500 and the Ford F-250
