The Ram 2500, more than other heavy-duty trucks, is very stiff when driven without a payload in the bed.
Choosing this work truck over the regular 1500 lets you opt for the 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel six-cylinder.
It is noisy but pulls strongly.
The six-speed automatic doesn't shift smoothly.
Handling is clumsy, and the high step-in makes cabin access difficult.
