There is no doubt about it; the RAM 2500 is the most powerful and capable pickup on the market! With a towing capacity of 19,370 pounds and a payload capacity of 4,520 pounds, this truck will do even the largest of jobs. New this year, and never before seen, is a torque of 850 lb-ft when you pair the RAM 2500 with the I-6 Turbo-Diesel engine. Additionally, the RAM 2500 sets the standard for comfort, luxury materials, and technology, which surpasses anything the competition throws out there. The RAM 2500s frame is built with high-strength steel, and some body panels are made out of aluminum, which brings the overall weight down. Need more? How about advanced safety features like adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring. When you’re on top of the mountain, it’s hard to go any higher, but by George, the RAM 2500 has found a way!

The RAM 2500 helps keep you informed and in control, thanks to a multitude of safety and security features. Every version of the RAM 2500 comes with Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, which helps to inform the driver if a collision appears imminent. If the driver fails to act, the RAM 2500 will automatically apply the brakes and bring the pickup to a complete stop, even if you have attached a trailer.

When the system detects slower traffic, the RAM can adjust the speed down to 0 mph even with an attached trailer.
