Five Quick Facts About the 2018 Ram 2500 Truck

When it comes to towing and payload, a weak truck doesn't cut it. Fortunately for drivers around Spokane, Ram does its part in offering a lineup of trucks that get stronger with each new model. The Ram 2500 is one of the stronger models within the Ram family. From its design to capabilities, Washington truck drivers will be taken care of in the 2018 Ram 2500.

Whether you're still deciding about a truck or getting ready to enter the financing phase, there are a few quick things to take away from what the Ram 2500 brings forward to handle difficult jobs.

  1. The maximum diesel towing, with the 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engine, is a stunning 17,980 pounds. If you choose a non-diesel engine, the most you'll be towing is 16,320 pounds.
  2. Gas and diesel engines both have their strengths in the Ram 2500. Maximum diesel torque reaches 800 pound-feet, while the gas engine features a best-in-class 410 horsepower.
  3. Despite having the higher towing capacity, the top heavy-duty 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 has the highest payload of 3,990 pounds. This advantage is something to consider if you're be carrying cargo more than hauling it.
  4. Those who prefer driving a truck with a manual stick shift won't feel left out in the Ram 2500. When the diesel engine is selected, a six-speed manual transmission is optional. On the remaining engine choices, drivers will use a six-speed automatic transmission.
  5. If you select the diesel engine, you'll use the included Smart Diesel Exhaust Brake System. This performance and safety feature monitors the truck's speed on descents and helps with smooth braking. This braking support makes a huge impact when the load is especially heavy.
