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. Chrysler's powerful 383-hp, 5.7-liter V8 is the standard engine, but you can opt for the powerful 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel. This strong-pulling diesel engine is not available on the Ram 1500.

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.

ARTHUR N., WA (2015 Ram 2500)

"Solid feeling truck, handles well - MPG not as good as expected - Slight shudder in transmission when starting - Headlights are terrible"

JAMES S., MT (2015 Ram 2500)

"This truck replaced a 2011 Ford F-150 which had a superior ride and handling characteristics. Granted the Ford is a lighter truck with softer suspension, hence a better ride and more predictable handling; just miss these features in the heavier 2500."

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.
