The RAM 2500 is a full-sized pickup truck that delivers on both its appearance and performance. An elegant exterior combines with superior power and strength to make it an excellent choice.
The RAM 2500: Combining on the Road Performance with Ultimate Comfort
The RAM range of trucks originally formed part of the Dodge line-up but due to its rocketing popularity, Chrysler created a dedicated brand to the popular truck. With the range now known simply as RAM, the RAM 2500 is one of its bigger models as a full-sized pickup truck.
The 2500 isn’t the biggest truck in the RAM garage but fits in perfectly between the larger 3500 and the standard 1500. The 2500 is a heavy duty model which is tough and robust and offers serious pulling power.
The Canadian range of 2500 trucks includes eight trims to choose from. Each of these provides the same strong and tough qualities but with different dimensions and a variety of luxury accessories. The 2500 comes with the options of three different cab sizes: regular, mega and crew. There’s also the choice of three drivetrains, one diesel, and two gas.
The 2500 won the Canadian Truck King Challenge and the turbo diesel was a big part of this. The 6.4-litre gas engine was also a winner, collecting a Best in Class award. With a maximum towing capacity of 7403 kg, drivers have the option to choose either the six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Relax in a Stylish Truck
RAM is without a doubt tough trucks designed for practical use, but that doesn’t mean the exterior hasn’t been given thought too. It’s not just the aesthetics but also useful features which adorn the outside of the 2500 such as halogen headlights, gleaming chrome grilles and bright accents, to name but a few.
Inside the cabin, there’s the ability to choose the model that fits your needs, with some cabs larger than others. If you think it’s likely you’ll need more room for occupants, the larger sized can provides more capacity but also flexibility with seating that can fold totally flat when not in use. The entry level has a good level of features but as you move to higher trims, you’ll find there are more luxury accessories included. These help the interior to look and feel more like a high end saloon than a traditional pickup truck.
Extras can include heated steering wheel, dual zone climate control, heated seats, wooden trim and leather bucket seats, plus an 8.4 inch LCD touch screen for the entertainment system.
Keeping you Safe While at Work
The 2500 is a workhorse, a truck designed to do hard work and carry heavy loads. With this in mind, safety is a major consideration to protect both passenger, driver and other vehicles.
The good news is that RAM scores highly for safety with a long list of features included. Power steering, electronic roll mitigation, hill start assist, ABS, traction control, trailer sway control, electronic stability control and emergency braking can all be found on these pickup trucks.
The RAM 2500 is a heavy duty truck which sits midway in the range of full-sized pickups. With a sophisticated exterior, gritty performance and luxury interior the 2500 is a surefire winner.
