Expert Review


CARHP Editorial July 20, 2019


Starting at a price of $36,145, Ram is the cheapest truck in this segment. There are flexible trim options to choose from, Limited being the fully loaded one. The Power Wagon trim is built for extreme off-roading and gives a tough to Ford’s Raptor as its ground clearance and a tough frame is something that Raptor lacks.

When it comes to competing trucks, Ram has always been a second option. Ram 2500 is like that kid in school who is not very good in academics but surpasses the IQ level of anyone in that class. Ford and Chevrolet provide truck buyers with better engine and performance but the reoccurring case of frame bending with and Ford and low ground clearance of Silverado is still an issue.

Engine & Transmission

Ram 2500 is a powerful truck with some heavy duty responsibilities to take care. The 5.7L hemi can take on heaviest tasks with ease and this heavy duty truck was built for that. While being a heavy duty truck this truck is equipped with a much smoother transmission.

The 6.4L Hemi V8 can produce 383hp of power and 400lb-ft of torque which might not be best-in-class but if you switch to the 6.7L Cummins engine variant, you get a thunderous 930lb-ft of best-in-class torque. Ram's competitors offer a much better performance, Chevy's Silverado offers best-in-class torque figures with a much refined engine.2

Acceleration

These heavy duty trucks are not very quick on their feet, they are like Japanese Sumo wrestlers. Even with that testosterone inducing built they are pretty quick. Ram reaches the 60mph mark in just 8.8 seconds which is pretty decent for this heavy bucket of bolts.

There are much quicker options to consider in this segment but you'll have to sacrifice a bit on hauling capacity and ruggedness. The quickest option to consider in this segment is the Nissan Titan XD which can reach the 60mph mark in just 6.0 seconds.

Ride & Handling

Ram can be as tough as a marine and smooth as a playboy model. The rear-coil spring suspension creates a perfect balance of stiffness and cloud-like comfort in Ram 2500. This coil suspension automatically adjusts itself according to road conditions and lowers itself when a heavy load is about to be hauled or towed.

Cursed with a vague steering response, Ram does not justify the heavy duty tag it bears. There is a much visible body roll around corners which was due to the awkwardly muscular built.

Braking

These workhorses are loaded with some big brakes and these big brakes are essential if you want to all that torque and horsepower under your feet. The powerful anti-lock braking inside this Ram are pretty efficient and Ram does provide optional exhaust brakes which provide extra braking while towing heavy loads without damaging the brake pedals.

Off-roading Capabilities

The huge Old Power Wagon by Smash is a finished rough terrain driver and victor of 2016 Gold-Hitch grant. With front and back securing differentials and best class ground freedom, this Power Wagon can slither through any landscape. Raptor and Chevy's Colorado ZR2 may be the lighter partners of Slam yet Power Wagon tears through rough landscape like a cattle rustler.

Raptor rules the free rock landscape and even with a more extensive body and its restrictive "Shake Slither" mode, Raptor isn't as competent as Power Wagon in tough rough territory. Load of Intensity Wagon can turn into an issue while biting through the unpleasant territory as the tires dive in around the delicate mud.

Maximum Towing Capacity

There's a huge difference in the way now the Ram tows. There is much speculation about the towing capacity of a Ram truck and with the numbers fluctuating every year, this speculation is justified. This year, Ram carries a towing capacity of 11520lbs which is not the lowest but Nissan Titan is not what an average American truck buyer desires.

Seating & Comfort

Ram is furnished with an appealing interiors inside which will give a sumptuous flavor to your work-truck. It may be a rock solid truck yet with all around created insides and an ideal seating position. The suspension may be solid however it offers much preferred solace over any of its rivals.

2500 now adopts its new design cues from the 1500 with the new butch grille and a new hood design as well. With a big "Heavy Duty 2500" emblem now porched on hood than the fender for that new characteristic look, the hood still deems light. FCA now has developed the new RAM with various parts made from aluminum such as hood, tailgate, engine mounts, front axle center section, front suspension crossmember, transmission crossmember and steering system gear. The overall weight reduction is approximately 225 pounds which now brings the RAM into direct horns with Ford who was the latest manufacturer who went the aluminum way.

2019 RAM 2500 Crew Cab Competition

Ford F-250 SuperDuty Crew Cab

The Ford F-250 is America's most loved heavy duty truck and to give this truck competition you'd need some serious numbers. Ford's class-leading torque numbers and over 7 decades of truck making experience keeps this heavy duty truck on top of many buyers priority list. F-250 is still a great go to product

Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab

Ram's 2500 now is now one on one with Silverado 2500 in terms of the features and upgrades it offer with the number and punch that is required to keep up with Silverado. Silverado's hauling and towing capabilities combined with its muscular and bulky look gives Ram a hard time. The interiors and a power-packed diesel variant is what is keeping Ram alive in this segment.

GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab

Worked under indistinguishable maker from Chevrolet, Sierra looks like Silverado from various perspectives. They both offer a similar motor and execution specs likewise walk inseparably. There one similitude that these two trucks share and that is they both are superior to Ram's 2500.

2019 RAM 2500 Crew Cab Final Verdict

The new Ram is updated in just the right areas it always needed. And so now it has ample towing capacity, a good torquey engine and a vastly screened 12-inch infotainment screen. Now it even has a well sprung suspension with air bags all around in conjunction with the leaf springs. And now with a better sprung cab and engine mounting points, even the NVH levels are low than the outgoing model it replaces. Ram has now become the real go-to option for truckers just a notch above the competition.
