The Ford F-250 has an available TorqShift® G 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission that provides smooth shifts—even when you’re out on the road navigating challenging towing situations—with five drive modes: Normal, Slippery, Tow/Haul, Eco, and Deep Snow/Sand.

F-250 vs Chevy 2500: Towing Capabilities

  • 4,260 pounds of maximum payload capability when properly configured
  • 22,800 pounds of maximum towing capability when properly equipped

The 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 can’t tow or haul as much. The maximum towing capacity on the Silverado 2500 is 18,510 pounds when properly equipped.

F-250 vs Chevy Silverado 2500: Advanced Technology

Advanced TechnologyOn top of the incredible power and capability it has to offer, the 2022 Ford F-250 also sports a wide range of helpful tech features, like the available Trailer Reverse Guidance system. This system provides several exterior cameras that give you visual guides to show the direction of the truck and the trailer, with the guidelines changing as you steer.

This model also offers available driver-assistive systems, like BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Coverage and Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Forward Collision Warning.

Many of these systems also exist on the Chevy Silverado 2500. However, the Ford F-250 pulls ahead with the available Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System with Pro Trailer Backup Assist™.

This system has multiple cameras and features to help you master hitching and towing. The Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ function uses a knob to help you maintain better control when backing up your trailer. There is also a customer-placed camera you can attach to the back of your trailer to get better visibility.

While the Silverado 2500 has plenty of cameras, it does not have a package like this.
