Let's take a look at how the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 compares to the Ford F-250.
CHEVY SILVERADO 2500 TOWING CAPACITY VS FORD F-250 TOWING CAPACITY
When you own a truck, you're expected to haul a lot of gear and cargo in the bed. You'll probably need to tow things occasionally. When properly equipped, the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 can tow a hefty 17,900 pounds! Even with its biggest engine, the Ford F-250 Regular cab maxes out at 16,600 -- giving it a maximum towing capacity of 1300 pounds less than the 2015 Silverado 2500. So if your business or family outings require you to haul a trailer, boat or another vehicle -- the 2015 Silverado 2500 is the clear choice for you.
Both the 2015 Silverado 2500 and Ford F-250 offer available diesel engines because they're more reliable and can withstand heavy loads better. Also, the way the engine operates, they're ultimately more fuel efficient. The 2015 Silverado 2500 offers a 6.6-liter V8 Duramax Turbo Diesel, which gets you 397hp @ 3000 rpm and 765 pound-feet of torque @ 1600 rpm. It includes a diesel exhaust brake that helps slow the truck down, even on inclines. By contrast, the F-150 offers a 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel with 440hp and 860 pound-feet of torque @ 1600 rpm.
SILVERADO 2500 WARRANTY VS F-250 WARRANTY
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 really shines in the warranty department. Purchase one of these handsome trucks, and you'll get a 5-year/100,000 mile powertrain limited warranty because these beasts are made to last. You'll also get the same coverage for rust-through protection and Roadside Assistance. A bumper-to-bumper 3-year/36,000 mile warranty is also included, which covers everything from body to electrical. Compare that to the F-250 warranty where you'll get the same bumper-to-bumper coverage, but only a 5-year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty. So if you travel a lot (and who doesn't, in a truck?), this warranty may not cover you.
