2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD vs. Its Competition

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Work Truck

The Ford vs.

Chevy wars continue to rage in the heavy-duty segment of the pickup truck market.

An all-new Ford Super Duty was introduced for the 2008 model year, and it is a heck of a truck, complete with a revised Power Stroke diesel.

That engine isn't a true "clean" diesel yet, but will be soon.

There's no mistaking the Super Duty's style, which is certainly more distinctive than the Silverado HD's.

Features like the optional in-tailgate stepladder are also innovative and go unanswered by Chevy.
