The Ram 2500 has undergone improvements similar to the ones the Ram 1500 received. With a coil-spring rear suspension it now has a ride that is more civilized than competing heavy-duty trucks. Choosing this work truck over the regular 1500 lets you opt for the 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel six-cylinder that pulls strongly. The high step-in makes cabin access difficult.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"I bought the 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel to tow the travel trailer I live in. I am so happy with how it tows. The engine pulls strong and the integrated exhaust brake makes descents safer and easier. The ride when empty or towing is just as I like, firm but not jarring. The seats are comfortable and the climate controls work great. My only complaint is that the user interface for the entertainment system is a little clunky. I have had no problems at all, and would very happily purchase the same v"

FRANCES B., SK (2014 Ram 2500)

"An adult can sit in the center of the front seat of my 1999 Dodge Ram 2500. In the 2014 there is a floor console that prohibits that. I do not like this change. I don't need 5+ cup holders in the drivers area"

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
