RAM 2500 Style

The look of the RAM 2500 might seem familiar and that's because it looks very similar to the RAM 1500. That's a good thing! It does have its key differences. This truck's front end is dominated by a taller grille and bigger headlights for a memorable entrance and a muscular look that intimidates other drivers. Each trim level presents a different tweak to the look but they all share a broad style that is unmatched by other heavy-duty trucks.

Power and Performance

If you're buying a heavy-duty truck like the RAM 2500, there's a good chance you need something that can handle a lot. It's offered with a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI® engine that is capable of 383 horsepower and 400 pounds per feet of torque. All models also include options for a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI® CNG, a 6.4-liter Heavy-Duty V8 HEMI® and a 6.7-liter I6 Cummins® Turbo Diesel Engine.

Most trim levels are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission but can include a six-speed manual transmission. Also available is the option to upgrade to four-wheel drive for better control when the weather doesn't want to cooperate or when you need better traction for those bigger loads.

Heavy-duty trucks can handle extremely large loads with relative ease and the RAM 2500 is no different. It offers a maximum towing capacity of 17,980 pounds and can haul a maximum of 3,060 pounds in its cargo bed. Your neighbors will be jealous when they see all your new RAM 2500 can do.

Finding Interior Comfort

Powering through rough road conditions isn't all this truck can do. Those long trips around Missouri are comfortable due to the dimensions of the RAM 2500 interior. The crew cab and other cab options above regular cab offer over 40 inches of legroom in both the front and back and you won't have to stoop over with plenty of headroom for you and your adult passengers. The regular cab can manage two passengers while other cab options can hold up to five passengers.
