The base two-wheel drive regular cab includes the 5.7L Hemi engine, a six-speed manual transmission, intermittent wipers, a tilt steering wheel, air conditioning, and a CD player. The SLT trim adds an overhead console with a trip computer, cruise control, power windows, remote keyless entry, and chrome steel wheels. The Laramie trim level is available on the Quad and Mega Cab configurations, and adds upgraded seats with leather trim and a host of other interior and exterior upgrades.
Engines available on the Ram 2500 include a 345-horsepower 5.7L Hemi V8, a 325-horsepower 5.9L Cummins turbo diesel I6 (which was discontinued in January of 2007), and the new 350-horsepower 6.7L I6 Cummins turbo diesel (which first became available in January of 2007).
When properly equipped, payload ratings climb to nearly 3,000 pounds, and the Ram 2500 can tow up to 13,700 pounds when ordered with the new diesel engine. There is also a version that comes specially equipped for off-roading. Dubbed the "Power Wagon," it is available on the four-wheel-drive regular and Quad Cab configurations, and adds items such as a disconnecting front stabilizer bar, a winch, skid plates, big LT285/70R17D all-terrain tires, locking front and rear axles, and big wheel flares.
Notable options include a GPS-based navigation system, a rear seat entertainment system, power adjustable pedals, and a sunroof.
Ranging from less than $27,000 to over $58,000 for a fully loaded Mega Cab 4WD, Dodge presents a panoply of Ram 2500s to meet or exceed virtually any full-size truck needs.
