2017 RAM 2500 serving Winston Salem NC
The RAM 2500 is the three-quarter ton version of full-size pickup truck that Fiat Chrysler has been producing since 1981. Over the years, the RAM brand has won accolades for its fit-and-finish quality, ride comfortability, and off-road capability. For the 2017 model year, which comes during its fourth production cycle, the RAM 2500 is available in eight trims: Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn, Lone Star, Laramie, Power Wagon, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. Four bodystyle combinations are available; they are Regular Cab with an 8-feet box, Crew Cab with a 6-feet 4-inch box, Crew Cab with an 8-feet box, and a Mega Cab with a 6-feet 4-inch box.
If you go with the Regular Cab of the new RAM 2500, you’d get a two-door truck with a single row of seats. The other bodystyles—Crew Cab and the slightly larger Mega Cab—have four doors and two rows. At the base level, the seats are covered with vinyl. However, as you go up in trim, you can get leather trim, multi-power seat adjustability, or heating or cooling capability, among other enhancements. For entertainment, the RAM 2500 has a six-speaker audio system, which includes an AM/FM radio tuner, a media hub that consists of a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack, and Uconnect for integrating infotainment controls. Upgrading in trim increases your chances of getting additions or enhancements like a 5- or 8.4-inch touchscreen for information display, a one-year complimentary SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, steering wheel-mounted controls, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone service and audio streaming, remote vehicle start, auto dimming on the rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, a universal garage door opener, and a one-year trial subscription to Uconnect Access service for in-car connectivity. If you are an audiophile, you can get the Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, or Limited to get a nine-speaker Alphine audio system, instead of the six-speaker setup. And the Laramie Longhorn and Limited are the only trims with HD Radio, as well as a GPS navigation system, which comes with five-year trial subscriptions to SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link.
At the base level, the new RAM 2500 comes with exterior features like power heated mirrors with manual fold-away ability, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and quad halogen headlights that can automatically turn on and off depending on the amount of outdoor light. Depending on trim, you might be able to get enhancements or additions, such as bi-function projector black headlights and fog lamps for improved illumination, 18- or 20-inch aluminum wheels for improved stability and aiding shorter braking distances, and power foldability and turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors.
A heavy-duty suspension with a link coil design and shock absorbers on both axles and a front stabilizer bar keeps the 2017 RAM 2500 stable when on your off-road adventures. However, the Power Wagon trim stands out with its “Articulink” suspension, which combines high movement joints at the control-arm-to-axle mount for more flexibility. Power steering provides precise and accurate turns and cornering. And you can choose between a front-wheel drivetrain or all-wheel drive for enhancing traction.
Powering the 2017 RAM 2500 is the 5.7-liter HEMI V8, which generates 345 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. However, true to its name, the Power Wagon—which was introduced later in the model year—uses the 6.4-liter heavy-duty HEMI V8 instead; it has more output, which is measured at 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. There’s also the option of getting the 6.7-liter Cummings inline 6-cylinder turbo diesel engine for maximizing gas mileage. Hitched to the RAM 2500 engine is the 6-speed 66RFE automatic transmission. For towing up to 11,770 lbs., go with the front-wheel drive-equipped SLT trim with a Regular Cab 8-inch box configuration.
For protection in the event of an auto collision, the 2017 RAM 2500 has dual advanced multistage front airbags that face the driver and front passenger, as well as a pair of side curtains for head protection. Also standard on the pickup truck are electronic stability control for keeping you in absolute command when driving; anti-lock disc brakes for shortening stopping distances and preventing wheel lockup; and the Sentry Key theft-deterrent system, which combines remote keyless entry with engine immobilization. Upper-level trims receive enhancements or additions like a rearview camera, a security system for Sentry Key, and a front and rear park assist system.
