ram 3500 heavy duty truck for sale in new westminster bcThe 2020 Ram 3500 and 2020 Ford F-250 are the two primary heavy-duty pickup options for New Westminster truck shoppers. If you are in the market for this type of vehicle, engine performance likely matters a lot. Whether towing, hauling, or powering through less-than-ideal conditions, you will need enough muscle to get the job done. 

Here is how the Ram 3500 Tradesman and Ford-F-250 XL compare when you look under the hood. 

 
Ram 3500 Tradesman
Standard Engine: 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine with FuelSaver MDS
Horsepower: 410
Torque: 429 lb.-ft
Max RPM: 5,800

Ford F-250 XL
Standard Engine: 6.2L 2 Valve Gas SOHC EFI NA V8 (Flex-Fuel)
Horsepower: 385
Torque: 430 lb.-ft
Max RPM: 5,750

The Ram 3500 Tradesman’s HEMI V8 engine brings more HP than the F-250. The truck also comes with assets like Virtual Cam Timing (VCT), which provides consistent power regardless of torque requirements; while a Multi-Displacement System (MDS) lowers fuel consumption on the highway at cruising speed. In other words, you will get muscle when you need it, but won't burn excessive amounts of gas when you don't.   

How do these specs translate into real-world situations? The Ram 3500 with a V8 HEMI can haul up to 3,484 kg in its bed and pull a trailer weighing up to 8,260 kg.
