New 2017 RAM 2500 at Don Vance Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM for Marshfield, MO

The RAM 2500 is a truly remarkable powerhouse in 2017! New for 2017, standard five-micron air filters undoubtedly clean out the cabs of dust and debris inside all trims. But, on to the truly big items! On Limited 4x4 trims and the Laramie Longhorn, Bilstein monotube shocks are standard-- to get to the best-in-class ride feel and vehicle handling felt by most drivers. The Limited, Laramie Longhorn, and Laramie trims acquire a standard 6.4-liter HEMI engine-- nothing to sneeze at, certainly. There is a totally new trim for 2017-- the 'Power Wagon'-- which intentionally models itself after the original "Power Wagon" trim from almost 4 decades ago! This nostalgic modeling is seen in its interior, grille, bumpers, graphics, and on its wheels. A '4x4 Off-road Package' is new as well for 2017 (available on 2500 Crew & Mega Cab 4x4) that includes: on- or off-road tires (18-inch or optional 20-inch), wheel flares, a decal blaring its off-road desires, and more!

Under the 2500's Hood

The Ram 2500 has 2 potential picks for rear suspension systems: either a rear 5-link coil spring-based system or an air suspension system. The 2017 RAM 2500 pickup can be two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, but not all trims are possible in four-wheel drive-- but this could lend itself to saving your gas money. The best-in-class 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 gas engine is placed within as standard, seeing 383 horsepower at 5,600 rpm, and 400 lb-ft of torque. This 5.7-L engine works well with variable-valve timing (VVT) and is optional as a bi-fuel CNG engine-- with identical engine specs/output. There is a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine that also has earned a best-in-class title with the gasoline version, and that attains 410 horsepower (at 5,600 rpm) and 429 lb-ft of torque (at 4,000 rpm). It incorporates Fuel Saver Technology cylinder deactivation and the VVT. Maximum towing numbers is a big reason you are reading this, and the RAM 2500 can tow up to 17,980 pounds when properly equipped and setup. The optional 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine (with 6-speed auto transmission) rocks 370 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque. This 6.7-L engine sees 350 horsepower and 660 lb-ft of torque if placed together with a manual transmission-- allowing the driver extra control of shift timing. The '4x4 Off-road Package' (possible on the 2500 Crew & Mega Cab 4x4) also has Hill-descent control, a transfer case skid plate, a limited-slip differential, tow hooks, and Bilstein shocks.

Design of RAM 2500

The Ram Heavy Duty line appears in 8 trims: the base-level Tradesman, and the Laramie, Power Wagon, Laramie Longhorn, Laramie Power Wagon, Limited, SLT, and the Big Horn/Lone Star. The RamBox packs your stuff in the protected truckbed, plus, a tonneau cover both become options on all trims (except RAM 2500 trims with a CNG-engine). Technology assists inside as well with the Uconnect touchscreen system with navigation/Bluetooth, and the 3.0-inch, 5.0-inch or 8.4-inch screen size options will vary with both model and package access. For possibilities on body style, drivers can pick from either Regular Cab (with long bed), Crew Cab (long or short bed), and Mega Cab (with short bed). Standard items on every RAM 2500 show up as variable/intermittent wipers, power windows, power door locks (available on Tradesman), single-touch up/down front windows (Crew Cab & Mega Cab only), automatic headlamps, and a 12-volt DC aux port.
