2022 Ford F-250 vs Chevy Silverado 2500: Comparing the Engine Options

For the 2022 model year, both the Ford F-250 and Chevy Silverado 2500 have a tiered engine lineup. However, while Chevy allows you to choose between two engines, Ford offers up three choices.

For the F-250, the imposing 6.2L V8 Gas is the standard engine. The next engine option is a 7.3L V8 Gas. This one has 430 horsepower and thrives when tasked with heavy-duty jobs or commercial ventures.

Lastly, there's the bold 6.7L Power Stroke® V8 Turbo Diesel, whose 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft of torque set a pretty high bar within the segment.

The Silverado 2500 is capable yet lacking the versatility or high-end output of the F-250. The base engine is a 6.6L V8. The only alternative is a 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8, which musters:

  • 445 horsepower
  • 910 lb-ft of torque

Maximum Towing Capacity

Capability is clearly a must-have trait when choosing trucks as large as the Ford F-250 and Chevy Silverado 2500. While both excel in this regard, the F-250 has a distinct edge.

Here's a look at the maximum towing capacities for each option when properly equipped:

  • 2022 Ford F-250 towing capacity: 22,800 pounds
  • 2022 Chevy Silverado 2500 towing capacity: 18,510 pounds

That is a difference of over 4,000 pounds. With 22,800 pounds of towing capacity, you can tow things like construction equipment, multi-car trailers, and so much more.

Technology Created With Your Interests in Mind

A series of advanced driver-assisting technologies come available for the 2022 F-250 and the 2022 Silverado 2500.

When pitted against one another, the F-250 begins to pull away, thanks to a few inclusions.

For instance, there's an Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera System with Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. It helps keep your attached trailer on the straight and narrow as you attempt to reverse it into a tight area, and it also offers a package of cameras all in one group of features.

Trailer Reverse Guidance also assists when trying to guide your trailer in reverse in the Ford. The system gives you a clear view of where the trailer is going, with helpful guidelines that turn as you shift the wheel.

While the Silverado 2500 has plenty of camera views you can choose from, it doesn't come in the same package as things like:

  • Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ 
  • Trailer Reverse Guidance
  • 180- / 360-degree cameras
  • Customer-placed camera
  • Center high-mounted stop lamp camera
