2018 Ford Super Duty F-250 vs. Its Competition

2018 Ford Super Duty
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Ford Super Duty is nearly always compared to its Ram and General Motors counterparts.

Each does things a little different than the others: Ram is more overt in its style, but aged.

Chevy and GM offer more comfortable, straightforward heavy duty trucks, but they’re not as composed on the road.

Ford’s Super Duty adopts some of the controversial aluminum construction of the F-150, and high-tech conveniences, but it lacks the verve of its competitors.

The Nissan Titan XD is available with a Cummins turbodiesel, but is nowhere as capable as the others—it’s a heavy-duty only in appearances.

Quick Specs
The 2018 Ford Super Duty range combines maximum capability with the latest tech and conveniences—it’s no wonder they’re called “Cowboy Cadillacs” now.
The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado HD stakes its claim on a workaday pickup that won’t look dated in 10 years.
The 2018 GMC Sierra HD would be at home at any jobsite. Likely found in the foreman’s lot, we suspect.
The 2018 Nissan Titan and Titan XD fill in the gaps left by others with a reasonable price, reasonable performance, and better warranty.
The 2018 Ram 2500 balances style, comfort, and capability very well.
