SCHEDULE A TEST DRIVE

Overview

There’s a reason the word "RAM" is synonymous with "hard work." The 2019 RAM® 2500 was built to make sure you get things done with no struggles between warehouse and worksite. With the toughest choice between the brute force of a HEMI® V8 engine or a screaming Turbo Diesel, this powerful pick-up truck is capable of industry-leading towing and payload hauls.

The Perfect Ride for...

The high-demand driver. Whether you’re towing toys, a camper, or lots of construction materials, the RAM 2500 is up for the task. Thanks to the tough powertrain options and robust suspension components, the 2019 RAM 2500 is perfect for someone who needs a workhorse with plenty of space, connectivity, and capability. Innovative storage solutions and options to recharge power tools make the RAM 2500 the best tool in your garage.

Drive & Handling

They say you shouldn’t mess with perfection, but RAM decided to do it anyway. Now, the 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 comes standard in the RAM 2500 and offers up to 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. This engine is strapped to a TorqueFlite 8-speed transmission for optimal gearing and smooth shifting that eases up fuel consumption. For more grunt when you need it, the legendary 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel produces 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque, helping you tow more and bring in even heavier payloads. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, this powerful combo is perfect for getting the job done.

Contrasting the harsh suspension of most heavy-duty trucks, the 2019 RAM 2500 features a unique Frequency Response Damping system that adjusts to the vertical wheel input. The result is handling akin to a sports car, but fully capable of tackling tough terrain. Instead of the traditional leaf-spring system, the 2500 features five-link coil design, which translates into better load-carrying, as well as improved ability when faced with obstacles. 

Key Features

Technology

All that power is backed up by powerful technology. Thanks to the available Uconnect® 4C NAV, you can stay connected, no matter where the road takes you. The 12-inch touch screen gives you access to Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, SiriusXM® All Access Package, Navigation, and Bluetooth®. Whether you want to jam out to your favorite playlist or need a little help when you get lost, RAM has you covered. Upgrade to the available harmon/kardon® audio system, featuring 17 speakers and an 8-inch subwoofer, to produce rich sound for your premium passengers.

Five USB ports are available throughout the cabin to make sure your devices stay charged, and an optional wireless charging pad means you can forgo the cables. You can also add up to three 115-volt household plugs to make sure you always have power for your tools.

Safety

Safety is just as important on the road as it is when you’re getting the job done, and that’s why the 2500 is available with an array of safety features. With available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking ensures that your RAM hits the brakes when you don’t have time to react. A 360-degree camera gives you a birds-eye view of your entire rig, and a cargo-view camera lets you keep an eye on anything you’re hauling in the bed. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System can ensure the tires on your truck are at the optimum pressure, and it can monitor up to 12 trailer wheels, so you can tow a trailer with more peace of mind than ever before.

Alternative Options

These impressive numbers still not stacking up for the jobs you need to take care of? Take a look at the RAM 3500. With even more capability, towing, and available features, the RAM 3500 makes the biggest payloads feel easy. If you want the power of a RAM truck but don’t see yourself utilizing all the power of the 2500, check out the RAM 1500. This truck is still powerful enough for most jobs, but is more city-friendly.
