 What's New for the 2017 Ram 2500?

The Ram keeps the heavy-duty truck segment alive by keeping all its competitors on their toes. For 2017, the Ram 2500 offers a wide array of superlatives such as a class-leading ride comfort, a refined interior, and tremendous hauling capabilities. The 2500 is offered in multiple configurations, i.e., a couple of bed lengths, three cab styles, and seven trim levels: the Tradesman, the SLT, the Big Horn/Lone Star, the Laramie, the Laramie Longhorn, the Limited, and the Power Wagon. The Tradesman is the entry-level model, while the Limited seats on the other end and exemplifies big-truck luxury. The Power Wagon is a brand new off-road-focused trim with an upgraded interior, new wheels, a bolder grille, and tweaked bumpers. Cab styles include a regular cab (two doors), a crew cab (four doors), and a Mega cab (four doors). Tradesman and SLT models can be had in all three cab styles while the Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited models are only available as crew cabs or Mega cabs. Additionally, the Power Wagon variant is offered in crew cab styles of the Tradesman, SLT, or Laramie forms. Standard equipment in the base Tradesman comprises 17-inch steel wheels, black grille and bumpers, automatic headlights, a locking tailgate, vinyl upholstery and flooring, a tilt-only steering wheel, and a 40/20/40-split front bench. The entertainment system comprises of a six-speaker stereo with an auxiliary audio input and a USB port. The Tradesman Crew Cab gets power-adjustable, heated mirrors and power windows and locks. It is also worth mentioning that the Ram 2500's coil spring rear suspension is class-exclusive and offers a more compliant ride than the leaf-spring setup preferred by its competitors.

Drivers can choose from an option of three potent engines. The first, and most common, oil burner is a 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine that harnesses 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. This engine uses a six-speed automatic to drive either the rear wheels or all four wheels (variably). A modified version of the same mill is available and runs on compressed natural gas to give a similar output. The first optional motor is a 6.4-liter V8 that pushes out 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. The second alternative is a turbocharged 6.7-liter diesel six-cylinder that combines with a six-speed manual transmission to crank out a massive 350 horsepower and 660 lb-ft of torque. The latter gives 370 hp and a class-topping 800 lb-ft of torque when paired to an available reinforced six-speed automatic transmission. The new Ram 2500 also receives an optional 4×4 Off Road Package that adds a plethora of useful off-road specific features. They include tow hooks, hill descent control, Bilstein shock absorbers, transfer case skid plates, wheel flares, a limited-slip differential, on/off road tires, a five-micron cabin air filter, and off-road decals.
