2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD vs 2015 Ford F250
We’ve said it before, and we’ll most certainly say it again, because there is simply nothing more true about trucks: if your light-duty truck just isn’t getting the job done, upgrade to a heavy duty. We decided to pit our heavy duty GMC truck against the most popular heavy duty truck on the market, by taking a closer look at the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD vs 2015 Ford F250. The 2500HD might not be quite as popular as the F250, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have it’s fair share of advantages
Advantages of the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD
At first glance, it would seem as though the table isn’t exactly favoring the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD as much these tables normally do in our comparisons. While it can trailer an extra 500 lbs. of weight behind the truck and hold an extra gallon of gasoline to allow you to stop for gas fewer times on a long trip, those two advantages along don’t exactly sell the fact that the Sierra HD is a better option..
But if you take another look at the table, you’ll notice that one of those specs is curb weight. While it looks like the F250 is superior, you actually want a smaller number in that category. So even though the F250 has an extra 25 horsepower, the fact that the Sierra 2500HD weight more than 200 lbs. less closes that gap quite a bit, making the two heavy-duty trucks fairly comparable in terms of power as well. So add that to the slight advantages in fuel and towing capacity, and you’ve got a superior truck.
