2017 Ram 2500 with optional features

There’s a lot that goes into the decision to buy a new truck, and we at Sherman Dodge want to do our level best to help you out. We’ve decided to pit two pickup trucks, the 2017 Ram 2500 and the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty, against each other to really see which one comes out on top. Take a read through and don’t hesitate to contact our seasoned staff by dialing 855-511-6900 or sending a message via the chat function on the bottom, right-hand side of your screen.

There are so many iterations that both of these trucks come in, that comparing them can feel like a full-time job. We’re going to try to break it down and just look at the core of what will make these trucks useful to you — starting with what’s lying in wait underneath the hood. The Ram 1500 boasts a standard 5.7-liter V8 engine that pumps out 383 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. This power is put to good use, which can clearly be seen in its 17,980-lb. maximum towing capacity1! The Ford F-250 has its own V6 engine that produces 385 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque, but it only yields a 13,300-lb. towing capacity2 that falls short of the Ram 2500’s capabilities. You can increase the axle size on the F-250, but the most you’ll get is a 14,000-lb. towing capacity2, which is still shy of what the Ram 2500 offers.

Let’s up the ante and talk about upgraded engines for a bit here, since they both offer some fierce options. The Ram 2500 can be equipped with a 6.4-liter V8 engine to put a massive 410 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal. The F-250 doesn’t have a compatible engine to put side-to-side with it, which is definitely a shortcoming, but they both have diesel engines that are quite unique. The 6.7-liter Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel engine on the F-250 produces a pretty incredible 440 horsepower and 925 lb.-ft. of torque, which brings it up to a 15,000-lb. towing capacity2 — which isn’t able to exceed the Ram 2500’s capability. The 6.7-liter diesel 6-cylinder engine busts out an amazing 370 horsepower and 800 lb.-ft. of torque when paired with the reinforced 6-speed automatic to accomplish a 17,600-lb. maximum tow rating1!

When it comes to engine power, it’s clear that the Ram 2500 is superior, but let’s take a peek inside of the cabs and see which is better prepared to take you through even the longest of hauls. Equipped inside of the Ram 2500 as standard is the Radio 3.0 system that’s hooked up to 6 speakers. The F-250 falls considerably short of this, only providing 4 speakers — and that’s a difference in sound that you’ll definitely notice.

We at Sherman Dodge don’t think there’s much more than needs to be said in this comparison between the 2017 Ram 2500 vs the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty near Chicago, IL. Come experience the truck-on-top at our location, 7601 N. Skokie Boulevard in Skokie, IL. The Ram 2500 is waiting for you, in all of its iterations, right here, so swing by during any of our business hours Monday through Saturday!

Love my dodge journey crossroad that I got from here. it is the perfect car and a very comfortable ride!

Went in on Wednesday to buy a car I saw advertised online. Once I got there they told me that the car had recently been sold. Our salesman Ruben Garnica made an effort to show us similar vehicles but we weren't really happy with what we saw. Before we left, Ruben promised that he would find something we loved. By Friday he was texting us pictures of a car that was even better than the one we were initially interested in! On Saturday we went in to test drive, and purchase the car. I'm so happy with my new Honda Civic, and we are all so grateful to Ruben for going the extra mile and spending his day off searching for a car that met all of our standards. We will absolutely recommend Ruben Garnica to all of our friends and family for future purchases.

We had a great experience with Ruben. He is a good person to do business with. I recommend him to anyone looking to buy a car. There are a lot of negative reviews here but then again they didn't deal with Ruben. Go see him he will listen to what you're looking for and get you the best deal he can.

I had a very attentive salesman named Todd L that really went above what the job required. My wife recently got a vehicle from here and we had a few questions and todd went beyond to make sure all of those questions and concerns were all answered. Very good service experience on my visit to sherman dodge. Will definitely use
