Learn How the Ford F-250 Compares to its Berwick, PA Competition

At Ken Pollock Ford, we know how important it is for our customers to find the right pickup for their needs. Within the realm of heavy-duty trucks, two standouts in the class are our Ford F-250 and the GMC Sierra 2500HD. While we're obviously fans of the F-250 and it's unbeatable quality and capability, we thought it was only fair to compare the two trucks in a head-to-head matchup. To keep things as fair as possible, we took at look at what each pickup's base model has to offer. Read on to see how things turned out.

Pricing Advantage

When we took a look at each truck's starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price, the F-250 comes in nearly $5,000 lower than the GMC. Those savings add up, whether you choose to put them back into your truck and upgrade to a higher trim level or keep that money in your bank account for other life priorities. We also took a look at the average five-year cost of maintenance and repairs for each  vehicle here in Berwick and found that the F-250 will require less out-of-pocket money for the routine services you need to keep your pickup in top running condition.

Freedom of Choice

The Ford F-250 Super Duty is available in six trim levels: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. The Sierra 2500HD only comes in a four trim level lineup, so you have fewer options when it comes to finding a pickup that's equipped with the standard features you want.


This is usually the information that matters most when you're looking at a serious pickup, especially if you rely on your truck to show up for work every day. The Ford F-250 comes with a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine that manufactures a healthy 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The Sierra 2500HD, on the other hand, comes equipped with a 6.0-liter V8 that can only produce 360 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, falling short of the mark when compared to the F-250 Super Duty.


Since we compare base models, both trucks are similarly equipped when it comes to the standard features they offer. However, the F-250 Super Duty includes standard features that either aren't offered for the base Sierra or cost yet more money to add as pricy options. These include variable speed intermittent wipers, a trip computer, a passenger vanity mirror, auto-off headlights, brake assist, an anti-theft system, and a passenger airbag on/off switch. These just add even more value to the economic edge you already have if you choose the Ford F-250 Super Duty.


Both trucks come with similar warranty programs, with one notable exception. The Ford F-250 Super Duty offers a corrosion protection plan that covers the pickup for five years and unlimited miles, while the Sierra 2500HD limits that coverage to three years or 36,000 miles -- whichever comes first.
