The New 2019 RAM 2500 is Changing the Heavy-Duty Pickup Game

While light-duty trucks like the RAM 1500 receive significant updates every year and enjoy many of the features, technologies, and luxuries of passenger vehicles, heavy-duty trucks are often left out, sticking with the same bare-bones experience for decades. That's all changed with the all-new RAM 2500 pickup truck. With more power, more features, and more style, the RAM 2500 is shaping up to be a game changer in the heavy-duty truck world.

Improved Power

Of course, the main reason to pick up a heavy-duty pickup truck is for its strength and versatility. The new RAM 2500 offer more than ever before, featuring a 98.5 percent high-strength steel fully-boxed frame. The robust frame can handle a wide range of tough work duties with ease and is built to last. The available auto-leveling air suspension system makes this tough even more versatile.

The 2019 RAM 2500 comes with two legendary engines that are well-trusted throughout the industry. The iconic HEMI 6.4-liter V8 comes standard, offering up 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. This setup can earn you up to 17,130 pounds of towing strength and a 6,600-pound payload limit.

The renown 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel Inline-Six engine is improved for 2019, featuring upgraded power ratings: 370 horsepower and an incredible 850 pound-feet of torque. The Cummins Turbo Diesel powertrain gives your RAM 2500 up to 21,560 pounds of best-in-class towing capacity and a payload limit of up to 5,730 pounds.

The RAM 2500 is heavy-duty off of the road too, with four-wheel-drive, locking differentials, off-road tires, and Bilstein shocks standard in the RAM 2500 Power Wagon and available in other RAM 2500 models.

A Comfortable Cab

The RAM 2500's spacious cab is available in a multitude of configurations to suit any truck owner's needs. Base work models feature durable vinyl seating for up to six and all the infotainment technology you need to get the job done. As you move up the trim levels, you'll find the RAM 2500 becomes a virtual luxury liner that's on par with some of the finest luxury automakers out there.

For example, the RAM 2500 offers 100 percent leather upholstery. Seats, dash, console, door panels, and more all feature 100 percent leather upholstery in the RAM 2500 Limited and RAM 2500 Laramie Longhorn--that's unheard of in the heavy-duty truck field. You'll also find generous amounts of premium high-grade wood trim, real brushed metal inlays, and more.

The cab is as comfortable as it is luxurious, thanks to large, supportive seats and plenty of leg, head, shoulder, and arm room. Even the rear seats of the cab are comfortable, with 43 inches of legroom and reclining seatbacks. Just need space for stuff? The rear seats fold flat to offer up interior cargo space. RAM's innovative active noise cancellation system creates a quiet ride as well--a feature usually reserved for high-end luxury vehicles.

Advanced Automotive Technology

Many heavy-duty trucks seem to get left out when it comes to tech features, but the RAM 2500 offers so much technology that we wouldn't be surprised if it affected the payload capacity. The RAM 2500 has a hearty helping of features for comfort, convenience, entertainment, and of course, heavy-duty work. An optional 360-degree surround-view camera system displays Bird's-Eye View of your truck on the display screen, giving you confidence while maneuvering tight spots. The Trailer Reverse Guidance View and cargo view help you manage your workload, while the digital instrument cluster display monitors your truck and trailer tire pressure.

A full safety suite helps keep you and the crew safe, including features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, and Adaptive Forward Lighting. The RAM 2500 keeps you and the crew connected and entertained with available features like harman/kardon premium sound, satellite navigation, and smartphone integration.

The RAM 2500 Could be the Future of Heavy-Duty Trucks

Although many heavy-duty trucks offer plenty of power, none quite match the comfort, technology, and styling of the RAM 2500. The latest 2019 RAM 2500 is proving to drivers and workers that going with heavy-duty power doesn't have to mean giving up on style, modern technology, and lavish luxury.
