Interior Style and Comfort: It’s a Tie!
Just a decade or so ago, work trucks were anything but refined. But these days, you can expect luxurious things from the heavy-duty truck segment. Both the 2020 F-250 and the Sierra 2500HD offer a variety of trim models, offering all the luxuries you could ask for, from heated and ventilated seats to a variety of leather upholstery options. These heavy-duty trucks also supply the latest infotainment gadgets, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
Maneuverability: 2020 Ford F-250
If you haven’t driven the latest Super Duty models yet, you’re in for a treat. The new aluminum body panels make the 2020 F-250 lighter and therefore easier to handle, both on the pavement and off. Indeed, for a heavy-duty truck, this Ford pickup moves through rugged territory with ease.
The GMC Sierra 2500HD is certainly powerful. However, it’s not as precise, especially in the steering and handling departments. You’ll be able to maintain control over this hefty vehicle, but the F-250 is certainly the sharper of the pair, especially on the trail.
Max Payloads: 2020 Ford F-250
If you’ve got heavy supplies that need hauling, both trucks can be of service. However, the F-250 is the more impressive model. Depending on body style and equipment, this Ford Super Duty can haul payloads weighing up to 4,332 pounds. The GMC Sierra only hauls a little less of your construction supplies, though, with payload ratings that reach 3,979 pounds.
Max Towing: 2020 Ford F-250
When you’re shopping the heavy-duty truck segment, you’re likely in need of a strong diesel towing performance. The F-250 is also the leader here, with max tow ratings of up to 22,800 pounds. The GMC Sierra 2500HD is only slightly less capable, however, towing up to 18,510 pounds of your work supplies. To make less trips towing heavy gear from town to town, you should choose the F-250.
The GMC Sierra 2500HD is a sturdy workhorse, but the 2020 Ford F-250 is definitely the heftier choice. This Ford Super Duty truck also impresses with its precise ride and responsive handling, adding an element of simplicity to your workday.
