Under the 2500's Hood
The new 2500 is offered in seven trim levels, called the Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, Limited, and Power Wagon. Most of the trims will come standard with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 gas engine, and it is extremely powerful with 400 lb-ft of torque and 383 horsepower. When properly equipped, the 5.7-liter HEMI can provide a maximum payload of 3,060 pounds and a maximum towing rating of 13,890 pounds. For 2017, the Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited trims will come equipped with the heavy-duty 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine. This engine will feature 410 horsepower, 429 lb-ft of torque, a maximum payload of 3,990 pounds, and a best-in-class towing rating of 16,320 pounds. The final engine option is the extraordinary 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I6. This engine is particularly impressive, with 800 lb-ft of torque, 370 horsepower, a maximum payload of 3,160 pounds, and a maximum towing rating of 17,980 pounds. Transmission options will include a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual, and there is the option for either two-wheel or four-wheel drive.
Design of RAM 2500
On top of the seven optional trims, there are multiple cab styles and bed lengths that can be chosen, not to mention a variety of optional packages. The cab options include a two-door regular cab which is standard with an 8-foot bed. The two-door crew cab can be equipped with a long 8-foot bed or short 6.4-foot bed. The Mega Cab, which is an extended four-door body, has the same wheelbase as the crew cab/long cab combination, but it has a short bed. The Tradesman and SLT trims are offered with any of the cab styles, while the Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited versions can be equipped with either of the four-door options. Standard features found in the base Tradesman model will include a six-speaker stereo, 17-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, a locking tailgate, and more. Standalone features and packages are available with each trim, which makes it easy for drivers to customize the truck to their needs. The redesigned Power Wagon has an off-road theme both inside and out, with highlights including a tire tread design on the cloth seats, a blacked-out bumper, and blacked-out dual projection headlights. It also has extensive engineering upgrades, like Bilstein off-road shock absorbers, an integrated front winch, electronically locking front and rear differentials, and more.
