The Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks are available in three cab styles: regular cab, crew cab and Mega Cab. Buyers can choose single or dual rear wheels and one of two cargo-box lengths. These trucks can seat up to six people in certain configurations. V-8 engines that run on gas and compressed natural gas are available, along with a six-cylinder Cummins diesel that generates up to 900 pounds-feet of torque. Competitors include the Chevrolet Silverado HD, GMC Sierra HD and Ford F-Series Super Duty.
The 5.7-liter V-8 that can run on compressed natural gas is now available for regular cab and rear-wheel-drive versions of the Ram 2500 in addition to the crew-cab long-bed model.
New features include a switchable backup camera view, cargo bed lighting and front park assist. The Ram 3500’s maximum towing and payload capacity is 31,210 and 7,390 pounds, respectively.
