2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty Vs. 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
When you need to get work done, medium-duty trucks come through in a pinch. These trucks give you the comfort and ride quality of a half-ton pickup truck, but with the added benefit of being able to tow more, haul more and make the work day as quick and easy as possible. By combining rugged body-on-frame construction with some of the best powertrains available, three-quarter-ton pickup trucks ensure your workday doesn’t stop.
Within this class, the Ford F-250 Super Duty has been Canada’s preferred way to get more done for decades. Giving drivers the reliability and interior class of Canada’s favourite pickup truck and cranking the capability up to 11, the F-250 Super Duty is a titan of Canadian industry. Chances are, you live or work in a building that was finished with loads of help from the F-250. Going up against Ford’s three-quarter-ton truck is the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD.
