2008 Ford Super Duty F-250 vs. Its Competition

2008 Ford Super Duty F-250 XL
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

While the Dodge Ram 1500 has been relegated to a distant third place in the pickup truck sales race for years, in the heavy-duty segment, the 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 models compete nearly neck and neck with the Ford Super Duty and Chevy/GMC HD pickups.

The Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 don't have the distinctive heavy-duty style to help nontruck people know you're driving a more serious vehicle.

The F-Series Super Duty gets points for looks, but the Dodge's Cummins turbodiesel is already equipped with Bluetec exhaust after treatment, so if you're seeking the cleanest diesel engine around, only the Dodge has it.
