New 2017 RAM 2500 at Beck Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for Gainesville, FL
A lot is new for the Ram 2500 and you will certainly be happy to see all of its beneficial updates and thoughtful additions. Air-quality isn't probably your top concern, but to RAM, all details are important, so they installed a new five-micron cabin air filter across all trims. On the other side of the scale, there is an entirely brand new trim called the 'Power Wagon' in 2017, which takes a strong design influence from a prior trim (made almost 40 years ago) on its interior, wheels, grille, bumpers and on its graphics. 2017 also sees a new '4x4 Off-road Package', which incorporates a list of vital mechanisms (available on 2500 Crew and Mega Cab 4x4 configurations), consisting of: hill-descent control, tow hooks, a transfer case skid plate, Bilstein shocks, a limited-slip differential, on- or off-road tires (18-inch or optional 20-inch), wheel flares, and an off-road decal. The Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims gain the 6.4-liter HEMI as standard. On Laramie Longhorn and Limited 4x4 models, Bilstein monotube shocks are standard-- refining already best-in-class ride experience and vehicle handling.
Under the 2500's Hood
The Ram 2500 is truly exciting in its proven use of pioneering designs for available rear suspension systems, and on the 2500 there is the segment-exclusive rear spring-based innovation: a strong five-link coil system. That said, it can tow at maximum up to 17,980 pounds, when properly outfitted and configured. The standard engine on most models is the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 best-in-class gas engine, with 383 horsepower at 5,600 rpm, and 400 lb-ft of torque. That engine features variable-valve timing (VVT), and also has a bi-fuel CNG version with the same engine specs/output. Let's look at further options under the rumbling hood of this snarling beast of a truck and see just where all of its power is coming from. There is a sturdy 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine that delivers again the best-in-class (gas version), with 410 horsepower (at 5,600 rpm) and 429 lb-ft of torque (at 4,000 rpm), plus, comes with Fuel Saver Technology cylinder deactivation and VVT. That is the engine that the title-holding Ram Power Wagon arrives with as standard. If you simply need more pulling power, go with the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine (with six-speed automatic transmission), which gets up to 370 horsepower and an astonishing 800 lb-ft of torque, depending on application. This same engine gets 350 horsepower/660 lb-ft of torque if paired with a manual transmission, which is still pretty ground-shattering, and you get more control of the shift timing.
Design of RAM 2500
The Ram Heavy Duty line is available in eight trim levels: the base-level Tradesman, and then the SLT, Big Horn/Lone Star, Power Wagon, Laramie, Laramie Power Wagon, Laramie Longhorn and the Limited. For choices of body style, you can choose between Regular Cab (long bed only), Crew Cab (long or short bed) and Mega Cab (short bed only). Inside you will find the industry's leading infotainment system in the Uconnect touchscreen system with navigation/Bluetooth, whether the 3.0-inch, 5.0-inch or 8.4-inch screen depends on model, trim and package. Configurations of the 2017 RAM 2500 can be either 2WD or 4WD, but not all of them can be 4WD. Standard on all models are automatic headlamps, variable/intermittent windshield wipers, power door locks (optional on Tradesman), power windows, front one-touch up/down (Crew Cab and Mega Cab configurations), and a 12-volt DC auxiliary plug. Optional on all models is the popular RamBox cargo management system and also a tonneau cover (except on CNG-engine trucks).

Ram has many titles under its belt and currently has several by a mile, including the "Longest-Lasting Line of Pickups" title! Standard across the lineup is electronic stability control (ESC), which includes Brake Assist, electronic roll mitigation, Hill-start Assist, Rain Brake Support, Ready Alert Braking, all-speed traction control and trailer-sway control. There is a standard Sentry Key theft deterrent system (engine immobilizer), four-wheel antilock disc brakes, and there is also a safety-ensuring tire pressure monitor (TPM) system. If airbags are more what you are curious about, RAM has got you covered there too with standard multistage front airbags, supplemental side-curtain airbags, and supplemental front-seat side-mounted airbags. An electronic trailer brake controller is also standard on all except the Tradesman. Optional on any model is the DOT-certified Roadside Safety Kit which includes a DOT fire extinguisher, three reflecting triangles, two red vinyl flags and some spare fuses. That is a lot of integrated safety to be proud of, and this is potentially the truck you have been looking for to handle all your towing and hauling adventures.
