RAM 2500 Summary

Thanks to its excellent towing capacity and durability, the Ram 2500 is perfect for tradespeople, rural workers and any driver who prefers a powerful vehicle. Towing capacity of up to 19,780 pounds and hauling up to 4,050 pounds mean that the 2500 works as hard as you do.

An available Power Wagon package is perfect for off-roading, adding to the truck’s versatility and appeal.
