Vehicle Profile: 2019 Ram 2500
The Ram 2500 is an uncompromising work truck
Designed for work and engineered for durability, there’s no better tool to have in your heavy duty toolbox than the 2019 Ram 2500. With a towing capacity of up to 21,560 pounds and diesel powertrain warranty good for 100,000 miles, it’s ready to get the job done and then do it again the next day.
Ready for work
The 2019 Ram 2500 gives you a lot of options when it comes to engines, cabin sizes and trim levels, but at the end of the day it all comes down to a whole lot of capability. The legendary 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine, for instance, delivers the most standard horsepower in its class at 410.* If torque is more your style, opt for the 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6, which cranks out 850 lb-ft of torque and can tow up to 21,560 pounds. It doesn’t all start and end at the engine, though. The Ram 2500 also comes with a class-exclusive auto-leveling air suspension system, 98.5-percent high-strength steel frame and factory-installed rear-axle structural crossmember, all for the purpose of improving your hauling and towing experience.
The 2019 Ram 2500 is good for more than just carting around massive payloads. It’s also extremely capable when it comes to blazing trails in uncharted territory. That’s in part because of the Bilstein® gas-charged monotube shocks that keep the ride steady over uneven terrain, but also thanks to the front and rear locking differentials and the Power Wagon®-exclusive, electronically disconnecting front sway bar that allows the axles to articulate over tricky off-road sections. The Ram 2500 even comes with a class-exclusive WARN® ZEON-12 Winch rated for 12,000 pounds — the only factory-installed winch on a heavy-duty truck — so you can help out folk in lesser vehicles.
It may be rugged, but the 2019 Ram 2500 lacks for nothing in the tech and features department. In fact, the 12-inch touch-screen display is the largest offered on a heavy-duty truck, and the available 750-watt Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System comes with 17 speakers — also more than you’ll find in comparable trucks.* To enhance that listening experience even further, the Ram 2500 uses active noise cancelling technology and frame-mounted active-tuned mass modules to reduce unwanted noise and vibrations. That’s helpful when you just want to focus on the road without any distractions, but just in case, the Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking system can autonomously bring the truck to a full stop — even with a trailer attached — if it detects an imminent frontal collision.
It’s no mystery: When it comes to making heavy-duty pickup trucks that can handle just about any job you throw at them, Ram knows its business. But the 2019 Ram 2500 isn’t just a great worker. It’s also spacious and comfortable, with high-tech features you wouldn’t expect to find in such a rugged truck.
