Under the 2500's Hood
RAM truck is expanding on the very popular 2500 compressed natural gas to also include 2 wheel drive and Regular Cab models. This package contains a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 and is intended for retail and fleet customers providing emissions and cost benefits. The CNG system capitalizes on an abundant fuel that is sourced domestically while minimizing the reliance on foreign oil. In the field of pickups using gasoline engines the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 unleashes 410 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and a peak torque rating of 429 lb.-ft. at 4,000 rpm. This is best-in-class torque and horsepower among gasoline powered heavy duty pickup trucks. Coming standard on all V-8 models is the 66RFE six-speed automatic transmission. The HEMI is built on a solid foundation and history however the new technology working in conjunction provides a very forward thinking process. The system includes variable-valve timing, cooled exhaust-gas recirculation, variable-valve timing, and the trademarked Fuel Saver Technology complete with cylinder deactivation all helping with overall efficiency. Other engine options available are a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 providing 383 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and pushes a peak torque of 400 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. A bold statement is being made with the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6 available in two forms. The first is grouped with an exclusive six speed manual transmission delivering 350 horsepower at 2,800 rpm and 660 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,500 rpm. The second form attaches the Cummins to the 68RFE six-speed automatic transmission for 370 horsepower at 2,800 rpm with 800 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,600 rpm. RAM is very happy to offer a warranty on powertrain of 5 years/100,00 miles for diesel engines and 5 years/60,000 miles on gas engines which are both best-in-class.
Design of RAM 2500
RAM is the owner of the most complete "hitch 'n go" Towing Package within the heavy-duty class. The front suspension is unique, including high-movement links for flexibility and articulation in the towing process. For superior handling and a smooth ride, the RAM 2500 offers a choice for rear suspensions between an air system or a five-link coil system. The latter system, featuring a linked coil design allows for outstanding articulation when traveling over obstacles and is quite capable of towing up to 17,980 pounds which is the best in the segment. The other option is an air suspension utilizing an air bag instead of the coil springs. In this choice no load bearing is sacrificed. A perk of this design is the load sensing capability that detects weight from a payload or trailer. The air bag pressure increases until normal ride height is reached helping the vehicle tow and not drag the additional weight. The Ram Laramie Limited is the "new design on the block" offering premium materials and high attention to detail. This option features full leather seating, all-black interior and real wood components highlight what the brand is calling the "black tie" luxury edition. There is also a newly redesigned grille showcasing the "RAM" lettering, a front park assist system as well as exquisite pin striping, sharp looking accents and attention to details. With the purchase of the RAM 2500 a choice of 17, 18 or 20 inch wheels is available. Wheel options include cast aluminum or forged aluminum. For ease in viewing the bed while on the go there is a camera mounted in the center lamp area. With the touch of a screen the driver can go back and forth from monitoring the content of the bed or trailer to the backup view for ease in total operation. An additional big help is the new light system in the truck bed helping to see the contents of the bed or allowing for better vision while disconnecting/connecting trailers. Coming standard is a 3.5-inch interior screen displaying vehicle information which can be expanded to a Multi-view screen that is 7 inches long when you purchase the SLT or higher trim package. This screen helps in navigating and monitoring the vehicle's system during operation.
