Looking for a true workhorse? Look no further than the Ram 2500. This big heavy-duty (HD) truck enjoys the same improvements that the Ram 1500 benefited from over the last few years. Namely, the coil-spring rear suspension delivers a ride that is a bit more civilized than those of competing heavy-duty trucks. The Ram also benefits from an easy-to-use infotainment system.

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

"It has plenty of power"

THOMAS W., KY (2016 Ram 2500)

"I was genuinely impressed at how quiet and relatively smooth this 3/4 ton pickup drives. Averaging 20mpg with the Cummins Turbo diesel is also a pleasant surprise."

CARLOS A., FL (2016 Ram 2500)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"The 6.7 liter Cummins is so much quieter than my 2001 Ram 2500 it is unbelievable. The 2016 is very refined, the vented seats are excellent as is the ride comfort."

BRENT B., GA (2016 Ram 2500)

"very soft ride, quite ride"

What Owners Say

"My 2106 Ram 2500 Cummins is a great truck. It is everything that I expected out of a Ram and Cummins. While it is not loaded by any means, it has all of the towing power I need and is nicely optioned with towing package, comfortable seating, electric windows and doors."

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.
