Ram 2500
2017
Ram 2500 2017 crew cab Trim Shown: 2017 Laramie crew cab 4WD Automatic
The Ram 2500 mirrors the recent improvements that the Ram 1500 benefited from. With a coil-spring rear suspension, it now has a ride that is more civilized than the rides of competing heavy-duty trucks. Chrysler's powerful 383-hp, 5.7-liter V8 is the standard engine, but you can opt for the torque-rich 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel inline-six. This strong-pulling diesel isn't available on the Ram 1500. There is also a 6.4-liter V8. The truck lends itself easily to fifth-wheel towing, and it can be outfitted with a snow-plow preparation kit. The Ram 2500 has two rear cameras: one for backing up, another for monitoring what's in the bed. The crew cab's rear seat is very roomy, but access to the tall cab is awkward. Reliability has been well below average.

Ram 2500 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Crew Cab Power Wagon
Like other heavy duty versions, the 2500 has a stiff ride that bounces passengers around. Choosing this heavy duty work truck over the regular 1500 lets you opt for a Cummins 5.9-liter diesel six-cylinder engine. Chrysler's 5.9-liter V8 and, for 2003, a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 was also available. The crew cab's rear seat is tight and upright. In 2011, the Ram pickups separated from Dodge and formed its own brand.
