There is more than just towing capability and engine power that the latest trucks available offer. To make sure you drive a top-rated truck, we have put together a comparison between the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD near Antioch, IL. By using this, you’ll be able to see for yourself what makes the F-250 Super Duty a step above its competitors. Take it for a test drive today at Gillespie Ford!

Coming standard in the Chevy Silverado 2500HD is the 6.0L V8 engine, which is capable of a mighty 360 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. Those ratings may sound impressive until you find out that the Ford F-250 Super Duty’s 6.2L V8 base powerhouse churns out an incredible 385 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. The Ford F-250 Super Duty provides you with an available 6.7L Power Stroke® turbo diesel powertrain that sets impossible standards by producing a remarkable 430 horsepower and 925 lb.-ft. of torque. Although the Chevy Silverado 2500HD’s available 6.6L V8 Duramax® turbo diesel option works hard to achieve 397 horsepower and 765 lb.-ft. of torque, it can’t quite top the Ford F-250 Super Duty’s high numbers.

When it comes to hauling power, the 2017 F-250 Super Duty comes out on top once again in this comparison between the 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD near Antioch, IL. With its staggering 21,000-lb, towing capacity1, you’ll be able to transport the largest and durable equipment when driving the F-250 Super Duty. The Chevy Silverado 2500HD has a hard time keeping up, as it only boasts a 18,000-lb. towing threshold2. In addition, the Ford F-250 Super Duty’s 3,780-lb. payload capability1 triumphs over the Silverado 2500HD’s 3,534-lb. payload capacity3.

There are features in the F-250 Super Duty that you won’t find in the 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD, like the class-exclusive4 Trailer Reverse Guidance5. This innovation in the Ford F-250 Super Duty uses multiple cameras, which are placed in the back and side view mirrors, so you have a better view of what surrounds you as you maneuver with a tow attached. Also, the 110v/400w AC is only offered in the Ford F-250 Super Duty, while it isn't available at all in the Chevy Silverado 2500.

From the moment you step inside the Ford F-250 Super Duty for a test drive, you won’t want to drive any other truck. We hope that this 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty vs 2017 Chevy Silverado 2500HD near Antioch, IL, comparison has made clear that the Ford F-250 is the winning contender! Stop by Gillespie Ford today to see this outstanding truck in action. We are conveniently located at 18834 W Grand Ave. in Gurnee, IL.

Jerome was a great sales rep. He was on the level and did not dance around any of our questions. Very pleased with my F150 XLT Sport. 3rd vehicle from Gillespie and it will not be the last.

Owned a car I absolutely hated so I went to Gillespie Ford to look at a new vehicle. I was pretty specific on what I was looking for, down to the color. The salesman was able to find me exactly what I was looking for and then some. The finance manager, Shane Adams, who is rather easy on the eyes, was able to get me a great interest rate and payment. The dealership was very friendly, everyone was professional and made me feel at ease. I would recommend Gillespie to anyone looking for a vehicle and a friendly atmosphere.

This was the best experience by far. My salesperson Steve Norton was very understanding to our needs. He did not force upon us a vehicle that didn't fit our family or our budget.

I needed a car for my daughter to take to school and they had a great selection and even better prices. The process was smooth and she got the car she wanted(and I saved some money). I recommend Gillespie Ford and will be buying another car from them. Thanks guys!!

This dealership has consistently disappointed for service. Either things are not fixed or they take too long. Just dropped off my car for an oil change, cleaning and a noise from the windshield. They took from 7:30AM until 6PM. They called at 3 PM to confirm the services they were supposed to provide. They drove it and couldn't hear the noise.

Evelyn and Chris assisted me with getting my new car and did everything in their power to get it here from Michigan. After dealing with the flash flood which totaled my previous 2014 Ford Escape I was devastated. I went to several ford dealerships but at Gurnee Ford location they made everything happen. If you are looking for a new vehicle see these two! Thanks again

After reading the previous reviews at first I was a little skeptical about coming here especially since I went to three other dealerships My previous 2014 Ford Escape got flooded out last month and was considered totaled by USAA. �I realized that when when I moved from San Diego to Illinois that USA did not put a rental car on my insurance so I had to pay out-of-pocket for a rental car for a week. �I stopped into Gillespie Ford and told them that I have searched everywhere for a vehicle and trying to see if they can give me a better price. Evelyn went out of her way to get me a loaner car so that I didn't have to pay out-of-pocket. �They didn't exactly have the car there but traded with another dealership to get me the car I wanted. �They worked with me since I was a loyal customer and told them to not let me down. �Chris and Evelyn did everything in their power and I walked away with exactly what I wanted. Not every customer is going to be happy but I'll tell you what make your own judgement when you go there!
