Tell me about the Ram 2500 core structure.
Being capable of pushing out high amounts of power and transferring that to the road requires immense fortitude and rigid structure. WIth the 2019 Ram 2500, we see a solid initial framework with a longitudinal, ladder-type frame. To increase the carrying capacity and transfer of power, the exterior structure is robust and formed from steel; the body of the 2500 can be configured in one of three different ways, a regular cab that has two-doors and a longer 8-ft bed, a larger four-door cab with 6.3-ft bed or optional upgrade to the longer length, and a Mega Cab that features the largest cab size with shorter bed length. The rest of the 2500 is constructed based around this choice, giving slightly different trim options at certain levels and various optional packages to help customize the 2500 to what the job needs.
What powertrain options are there to select from?
Ram packs in a choice between two different powertrains within the 2500 that command respect on and off the road. The engine that comes standard with the base Ram 2500 is a 6.4-liter HEMI v8 engine that churns out 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. Working in conjunction with the solid framework of the 2500, this engine pushes a solid payload capacity and smooth driving experience with its eight-speed automatic transmission. If you are looking for even more from your 2500, Ram offers a 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel inline-6 engine that gives similar power output but nearly doubling the torque with 850 lb-ft rating. This immense increase in performance allows the 2500 to carry up to 3,260 pounds of payload and tow an immense 19,780 pounds of cargo while on its six-speed automatic transmission.
What are some of the key features offered with the 2500?
Ram trucks have a reputation for offering top-level tech and design bringing a high level of convenience and comfort to the driving experience. At the base Tradesman trim level, we see features like standard air conditioning, 17-inch wheels, an adjustable steering column, a 40/20/40-split front bench, a tailgate that can be locked, and more. The stock 2500 also comes standard with modern technology including a 5-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth, USB port and six-speaker sound system. Upgrading through the trim list with the 2500 will bring you a great number of extra features to enhance the driving experience including a handy 115-volt power outlet, LED headlights and taillights, multi-zone automatic climate control, smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated and ventilated front seats, larger 20-inch wheels, and much more. Ram also offers the Power Wagon trim that supplies heightened off-road capabilities with features such as all-terrain tires, shock absorbers tuned for off-road performance, extra tow hooks, underbody skid plates to help protect vital components, electronic locking rear and front differentials, and more.
