2018 Ram 2500 - The Best Heavy Duty Pickup Truck

2018 RAM 2500 

The 2018 Dodge Ram 2500 is the powerhouse you've been looking for. The Ram 2500 suite encompasses eight trim levels - the Tradesman, Big Horn/Lone Star, Power Wagon, Laramie, Sport, Limited, and the new Limited Tungsten. This bold machine boasts some awesome upgrades and stands out among other heavy-duty trucks.

Introduced in 2018, the new Limited Tungsten trim closely resembles the Ram 1500 but is more like the big brother all grown up. When it comes to the 2018 Ram 2500, bigger is indisputably better. This machine stands out because of its bigger, stronger features.

Compared to the Ram 1500, the Ram 2500 has a bolder face and a much taller grille. The larger grille commands the road as it turns heads of those drawn to its bold look. Bigger headlights are another feature that lights up the road for better visibility. For added visibility, the Ram 2500 has standard running lights on its roof that work well with its expansive ground clearance.

The Ram 2500 is a muscular machine with a strong presence that commands respect on the road. The huge pickup truck persona is apparent from the big trim and natural, unpainted bumpers. The steel wheels and Big Horn/Lone Star trim puts the Ram 2500 on a whole new level.

Like others in its class, the Ram 2500 sits on solid front and rear axles but has extra reinforcement from coil springs in the rear as opposed to leaf springs. Even more reinforcement is derived from the option of air suspension at an extra cost.

Although its monstrous body is too big for some trails, the colossal all-terrain tires and locking front and rear differentials, along with the substantial ride height and ground clearance, help to dominate rough terrain better than others in its class. Sand, river beds, gravel, mud, rocks, and snow are no match for the Ram 2500 as it is specially designed to handle almost any terrain imaginable.

Although the Ram 2500 has a hard, muscular exterior, inside it offers a pure, soft luxury. All the controls are within easy reach and the dash has a symmetrical style and resembles the interior of the Ram 1500.

While riding in luxury in the Ram 2500, it's easy to forget about what lies under the hood of this machine. The Ram 2500 operates at 383 horsepower with a standard 5.7-liter V8 and an impressive 400 pounds per foot of torque. Those who want more power can upgrade to the 6.4-liter V8. For even more power, the 6.7-liter V8 is an option that is available at an extra cost.

The Ram 2500 can tow up to 18,000 pounds when properly equipped, but normally handles approximately 16,000 pounds. While the transmission is a standard six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic transmission is an option. The choice of four-wheel drive is attractive. New technology is also a part of the Ram 2500 with its rear view cameras and an option for an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.

The Ram 2500 is available in five body styles and stands out in the big rig truck capacity. Whether it's used as a heavy, powerful luxury truck or as a rugged work truck, the Ram 2500 is ready for the job. It offers three cab configurations. Both the two-door cab and roomy and expansive crew cab have an eight-foot bed. The Mega cab has a 6-foot-4 inch bed. The roomy crew cabs offer a comfortable ride for five adults with room for one more with a front bench seat.

The interior is nice and soft and the seats are firm and supportive. The seats can be upholstered in cloth, leather, or vinyl. The Ram 2500 model boasts nicer seats than most luxury automobiles made with semi-aniline leather. Other interior materials come in a wide range of plastics, from hard plastics to softer materials in higher-spec models.

Equipping your 2018 Ram 2500

The 2018 Ram 2500 price depends on your configuration. It is highly customizable and offers a wide range of options and features. Regular cab models are standard with hose-out interiors and manual windows while the Crew Cab models have more power accessory options. A basic AM-FM radio is standard, but Bluetooth and USB port options are available with a five-inch touchscreen.

The SLT has keyless entry, a five-inch touchscreen audio system, cloth seats, alloy wheels, and chrome bumpers.

Next in line is the Lone Star, which is sold only in Texas, and the Big Horn, which is sold in the remaining 49 states. Both come with a wide range of options including heated seats and steering wheels and a huge 8.4-inch infotainment system that comes with or without onscreen navigation.

Next is the Power Wagon, which is modeled after the Lone Star/Big Horn trims but with more off-road technology. The Power Wagon has a winch built into its bumper, locking rear and front differentials, skid plates, and a raised suspension with better ground clearance.

For even more style, the Laramie is equipped with upgraded leather, saddle-inspired interior, two-tone paint on the exterior, and other exterior design touches.

The Ram 2500 Limited is an eye-catcher with its chrome and monochrome paint and is a top-notch model, but it is overpowered by the new 2018 Ram 2500 Limited Tungsten. It includes leather that is more luxurious and can be upgraded to include a synthetic, suede headliner. As a finishing touch, the 2018 Ram 2500 has power folding exterior mirrors. As a special benefit, the Box Ram Storage units turn the bed's side rails into extra storage space and come with a security camera that monitors the bed of the truck for extra safety.

The 2018 Ram 2500 is built like an ox and has earned its name as a strong pickup truck with small rig power. You'll find the 2018 Ram 2500 for sale in Independence at Landmark Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
