This Dodge Ram 2500 heavy-duty pickup is available with two-wheel or four-wheel drive and comes in a variety of body styles and trim configurations. A regular cab, Crew Cab (replacing the previous model's Quad Cab) and Mega Cab (really big crew cab) comprises the body styles.
Trim levels consist of the basic ST, the volume-selling SLT and the luxurious Laramie. Higher trim levels offer standard and optional niceties like dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, Bluetooth and a hard-drive-based navigation system. Off-road-ready packages include the TRX and the Quad-Cab-only Power Wagon.
Standard on all Ram 2500 trucks is a 5.7-liter V8 that made 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. This hefty power plant comes with a five-speed automatic transmission. For enhanced towing capability, there is a 6.7-liter inline six-cylinder Cummins turbodiesel that produced 350 horses and 650 lb-ft of torque. It is paired with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic.
