Critics Are Stunned the RAM 2500 Offerings

Since it’s just recently hit the market, only the big names in the auto review world have had a chance to scope out the latest Ram truck – of course, these two 2017 Ram 2500 reviews almost say it all:

  • Car and Driver: “Comfortable and capable, the 2500 is a muscular workhorse that can be outfitted plain or fancy …6.7L turbo-diesel inline-six is optional and comes with either a six-speed manual or automatic—and we love the diesel’s 800 lb-ft of torque.”
  • Motor Trend: “Despite being a big, massively capable truck, the 2017 Ram 2500 drives surprisingly well, never feeling as long or as wide as it really is. The big, torquey diesel engine makes similarly light work of towing and hauling heavy loads, too.”

The 2017 RAM 2500 Specs and Features

What is it that leaves Motor Trend and Car and Drive so impressed? Here’s a quick look at the 2017 Ram 2500 specs and features:

  • Performance Specs: The 5.7L V8 engine is standard, with 383 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque, but a 6.4L V8 with 410 hp and 429 lb.-ft. of torque is available as well, as is the behemoth of a turbodiesel with as much as 370 hp and 800 lb.-ft. of torque.
  • Towing and Hauling: When properly equipped, the 2017 Ram 2500 is capable of towing as much as 17,980 pounds, and even the base engine is up for the task of towing as much as 13,890 pounds.
  • Cabin Features: Drivers looking for a basic work truck will love the Tradesman trim, but the Power Wagon Laramie is practically luxurious. Discover features ranging from Bluetooth and a rearview camera all the way up to leather heated seating and a satellite-linked navigation. If you want it, it’s available in a Ram.
