Configuring the F-250 for fifth-wheel towing bolsters its capabilities up to 7,530 kilograms.

Highlighted Exterior and Interior Features

The base configurations of the GMC Sierra 2500 and Ford F-250 come equipped with many of the same features, such as steel wheels, vinyl upholstery, 40/20/40-split folding front bench seat, floor coverings, and an AM/FM stereo. Interiorly, however, the Sierra 2500 offers more in the ways of comfort of entertainment. Several features not included on the F-250 XL come standard on the Sierra 2500 Work Truck, including cruise control, power door locks, a 106.7-millimetre color display, a 4 to 6-speaker sound system, USB/iPod integration, and an auxiliary input jack.

Standard Safety Equipment

As work and trailering-ready pickup trucks, the GMC Sierra 2500 and Ford F-250 don’t skimp on safety features. For added protection, anti-lock brakes, comprehensive airbag protection, tire pressure monitoring, and traction and stability control are staples on both models. Trailer Sway Control also comes standard, and allows drivers to tow heavy loads while retaining directional stability on the road. While the Ford F-250 includes an SOS post-crash alert system, the Sierra 2500 takes peace of mind a step further by including standard OnStar, which tacks on:

  • Automatic Crash Notification

  • On-Demand Roadside Assistance

  • Remote Door Unlocking
