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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"LOTS of torque and plenty of horsepower to haul our trailer and cargo trailer. Smooth delivery of power. No loss of power whatsoever… Tow haul and jake brake remain desirable requirements. It is very quiet on the road - Inside cab super quiet - no road noise. Feels solid and extremely stable. Easy to see the road over the cab, if you’re short, because of the design. Not a big square front box like Ford or Chevrolet. Super easy to add DEF fluid, NOT like Chevrolet!"

Anonymous, OR (2018 Ram 2500)

"Excellent acceleration for a 3/4 ton truck, comfortable ride though it wanders a bit like it needs a front end alignment, but its manageable, great seating position and roomy."

Ben C., CA (2018 Ram 2500)

"This 6.4 gas has enough power to to pull anything I have, so no need for the 6.7 I traded. Forget the Cummins diesel unless you are towing heavy items full time."

Gary W., KY (2018 Ram 2500)

"Cummins engine has very good performance"

N W., FL (2018 Ram 2500)

What Owners Say

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.
