Features and Reviews 

Ford F-250RAM 2500
Professional Review Brutish power and payload capacity remain key traits of the F-250, while aluminum construction brings it into the 21st century. A 6.2-liter V-8 with 430 lb-ft, a max tow rating of 15,000 lb, and a six-speed automatic are standard; a 6.7-liter turbo-diesel V-8 with 925 lb-ft and a max tow rating of 18,000 lb is optional. Configurations include regular, SuperCab, and Crew Cab as well as 6.75-ft and 8.0-ft beds. The F-250 boasts a quiet cabin, a compliant ride, and up to six exterior cameras. -
Car & Driver
The comfortable, capable 2500 is a muscular workhorse that can be outfitted plain or fancy. Configurations range from the base Tradesman to the deluxe Power Wagon Laramie. It will tow up to 17,980 pounds; payload is 3160 pounds. Two gasoline V-8s-a 400-lb-ft 5.7-liter and a 429-lb-ft 6.4-liter-are offered, both with a six-speed automatic transmission. There's also a turbo-diesel 6.7-liter inline-six with six-speed manual or automatic; we love the diesel's 800 lb-ft of torque with the automatic. - Car & Driver
