2018 Ram 2500
Why Buy the Ram 2500?
The Ram 2500 is the bigger, burlier, and bolder version of the Ram 1500. With the Ram logo stamped proudly on the front grille, it has an unmistakable look.
The cabin is spacious and well-proportioned, and the seats vary between comfortable on the Tradesman base model to truly luxurious on upper trims. One of the strengths of the Ram 2500 is it can be stripped down to a sturdy work truck or souped up to be a luxury hauler. Inside, the 2500 offers connectivity and entertainment with the smart UConnect infotainment system. The touchscreen has great resolution, an intuitive display, and grows to 8.4-inch on some trims. Optional Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to connect your smartphone.
Is the Ram 2500 Reliable?
Ram trucks are built to take a beating and keep working. The Ram 2500 boasts a 50,000-psi steel frame and offers a 5-Year/60,000-mile gas powertrain limited warranty and 5-year/100,000-mile diesel powertrain limited warranty.
The best thing about the Ram 2500, besides its towing capacity, is its durability. Even on the most pitted and potholed roads, the 2500 holds its own. You’ll get yourself and your gear to where you need to go, even in challenging conditions.
How Much Can the Ram 2500 Tow?
This full-size pickup truck was made for towing, and that’s just what it’ll do–to the tune of up to 17,980 pounds. You may never need that kind of towing capacity, but if you haul and tow a big trailer or RV, it’s nice to know that it’s there when you need it. If you’re looking for something that can do even more, the Ram 3500 maxes out at 31,210 pounds.
What is the MPG on a Ram 2500?
Due to a legal loophole, there is no official fuel efficiency rating on the Ram 2500. However, independent testing puts it at about 19 miles per gallon combined. Even when towing a 10,000 pound trailer, it can still get around 13 mpg. That kind of fuel efficiency on a truck its size makes the Ram 2500 one of the best in its class.
