About the Ram 2500
A heavy-duty pickup truck that is designed to haul, the Ram 2500 is a much more versatile vehicle than it might seem at first. Over the years, the Ram 2500 has become an increasingly comfortable pickup that offers you a smooth ride. In 2009, Dodge Ram split the Ram truck off as its own brand, so look for this model as simply the Ram 2500.
This is thanks to the fact that the cabin of the Ram 2500 is equipped with plenty of amenities that your average pickup might lack, all on top of a coil-spring rear suspension. However, considering that it's still a heavy-duty truck at its core, the Ram 2500 is best suitable for drivers who need to haul or tow heavy loads regularly. For instance, if you're a contractor or farmer, the Ram 2500 can help with your daily work.
The Ram 2500 is now in its second generation (2019–present) with the first generation running from model years 2012 through 2018. The second generation includes various optional features that weren't available for sale in the previous generation. In addition to its standard, eight-speed automatic transmission, other features include an active-level rear air suspension, blind-spot warning, cross-traffic alert, and an anti-vibration chassis balancer.

Q: Are all Ram 2500 trucks Heavy Duty?

Q: Are Ram trucks still Dodge?
A: In 2009, the Ram truck brand and the Dodge brand were split into two divisions. Starting with the 2010 model year, Ram trucks officially stopped carrying the Dodge nameplate.
Q: Do all Ram 2500 trucks have an eight-cylinder engine?
A: All trims of the second-generation Ram 2500 come standard with an eight-cylinder engine. On the base trim—Tradesman—the 6.4L engine is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and delivers 410 horsepower. A 6.7L turbodiesel inline-six engine is also offered as an option.
Ram 2500 Towing Capacity
Being a pickup truck, towing capacity is one of the most important features of the Ram 2500 and among the leading reasons to buy one, but keep in mind that capacity varies between trims and model years for sale. For instance, the 2018 Ram 2500 Power Wagon has an estimated towing capacity of up to 17,180 lbs when properly equipped.1 This trim level is powered by a 6.4L eight-cylinder engine which delivers 410 horsepower.
1 Various factors may impact towing capacity, including weight of passengers, cargo, and options/accessories.
