Engine Performance Specs

You can choose from a trio of powerful engines in the Ram 2500-each with its own strengths. Let's look at the specs for each of those options:

  • 5.7L HEMI® V8: 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.4L HEMI® V8: 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.7L Cummins® Turbodiesel 6-Cylinder: 370 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque

The 410-horsepower HEMI® V8 is the best engine if you want to max out payload. It can haul up to 3,990 pounds, which will easily carry a full load of lumber, cement mix, sandbags, or anything else you need to transport.

Need towing power? Choose the turbodiesel 6-cylinder and put all that torque to work. It can tow up to 17,980 pounds when properly equipped and can easily transport a large boat, camper trailer, or heavy-duty construction trailer wherever you need to go.

Deluxe Interior Features

The Ram 2500 has always been a working man's truck, and its rugged styling reaches its zenith in the top-tier Laramie Longhorn trim. You'll find premium leather bucket seats in two-tone color options, such as Canyon Brown/Light Frost and Black/Cattle Tan. It even comes standard with intricate filigree craftwork.

Of course, there's plenty of practical space. If you choose the Crew Cab configuration, you can enjoy standard storage under the rear seats. Just flip up the bench itself, and you'll find a secure space to store all the essentials, from cargo bed straps to jumper cables and your toolbox.

Practical Exterior Features

Need a secure space for smaller items? You'll like the available RamBox® Cargo Management System, which is integrated into the side rails of the truck bed. The compartments are lit, for easy access when the sun goes down, and drainable, so you can fill them with ice and use them as a cooler for drinks.   

If you do plan on working out of your truck at night, the optional LED bed lighting will come in handy, too. These lights illuminate the rear section of the cargo bed to make loading and unloading in the dark much easier. Plus, they'll run efficiently and last longer than conventional halogen bulbs.
