2021 Ram 2500 vs. Its Competition

2021 Ram 2500
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Heavy-duty trucks are best from Detroit and options abound.

The Ram most often competes against General Motors and Ford but tops all three in interior quality.

Ford has a slight edge in available powertrains, and GM’s trucks have exceptional tech including dozens of available cameras.

It’s a close contest, but we give a slight nod to the Ram 2500.

If regular towing isn’t part of your routine, consider the Ram 1500 full-size truck that has more available engines, better gas mileage, and doesn’t block the sun.
