2019 Ram 2500 Review in Riverdale, UT

Redesigned 2019 Ram 2500 Promises Big Power, Bigger Capability

 

Ram set out on a mission for 2019: revisit every aspect of the Ram 2500 and come out the other side with a thoroughly improved heavy-duty truck. It's safe to say that Ram has accomplished that and much more.

The new 2019 Ram 2500 is a shot across the bow of the heavy-duty truck market, offering a combination of refinement, power, and durability that's simply hard to match. Ram has sifted through every aspect of the Ram 2500, eyeing room for improvement along the way. Everything from the truck's engine to its available infotainment systems have been revamped for a better overall experience. Truly, it's a truck without compromise.

Ready to Get Work Done

The 2019 Ram 2500 uses a formula that's quite similar to its predecessor, but light updates throughout yield improved overall performance. You'll still get a robust ladder-frame design that uses 98.5 percent high-strength steel. You'll still get available four-wheel drive for off-road capability when you need it. And you'll still get a pair of hefty engines that are ready to handle anything you throw at them.

The legendary Cummins turbodiesel inline-six engine has been re-tuned for more power. Now, it's good for 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. That means the Ram 2500 is rated at a maximum towing capacity of 21,560 pounds and can handle up to 5,730 pounds of payload.

For some drivers though, there's no replacing a good old gasoline V8. Ram responds to this request with the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 -- a powerhouse that produces 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. This engine elevates maximum payload to 6,600 pounds.

Refined Interior

There are plenty of luxury features available inside the new Ram 2500. Higher trim levels come with amenities like 100-percent leather seating upholstery, brushed metal and wood trim pieces, and much more.

Beyond available luxury features, the Ram 2500 cabin is also quite practical. It's ready to carry up to six passengers, and fold-up rear seats can be moved to accommodate more in-cab cargo. If you need a simple work truck, the Ram 2500 can fill that role as well. Base models come with vinyl seating, manual controls, and bare-bones functionality.

Technology Enhances Convenience

Long gone are the days when trucks were purely analog. Now, they're packed with technology features that make jobs easier and driving more comfortable. Few models encapsulate this like the Ram 2500. The new 2019 model has a long list of technology features offered to enhance practicality, safety, and even entertainment.

For starters, the 2019 Ram 2500 has several tech features aimed at making typical truck tasks easier. Navigate tight work spaces with help from an available 360-degree camera. Keep track of tire pressure and other information with a gauge cluster display. Back up your trailer with ease via the Trailer Reverse Guidance View.

Ram has also outfitted the new Ram 2500 with its Uconnect infotainment system. With an available 12-inch display, you'll be able to access all of your favorite functions like Apple CarPlay and navigation.

Finally, you'll be able to get an array of driver assistance technologies. These include Blind Spot Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, and more.

2019 Ram 2500: The New Top Dog

If you're looking for a truck with both unyielding capability and a true sense of refinement, the Ram 2500 is a perfect choice. The heavy-duty truck balances its diverse skills brilliantly, giving you the confidence and comfort to go practically anywhere and do practically anything.
