2017 Ram 2500 2WD Overview:
Ram trucks have a history that dates all the way back to 1932. Once a part of Dodge's line of lighter trucks, the Ram is now its own brand name. The modern Rams are produced with MOPAR parts by FCA US LLC. This corporation was formerly known as the Chrysler Group. The current Ram trucks are full-sized, heavy-duty pickups with tons of power and torque. Though designed to be workhorses, they also offer numerous luxury and safety features.

What's New in 2018?

There's not a lot of difference between the 2018 Ram 2500 and the previous models. The exterior and interior designs are nearly identical to those of 2017. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support have been added for the infotainment system. A rear-view camera has been added to the standard safety equipment on all models.

Available Styles and Trims

There is a cab size and trim level for every trade and purpose that would cause one to need a truck. The 2018 Ram 2500 is available as a 4X2 or 4X4 vehicle. It comes in three different cab styles and with three bed-length choices.

Beds are available in 5'7", 6'4" and 8' lengths. Longer beds are typically paired with the regular cab. This is a standard, 2-3 person cab with no rear seats. Crew cabs feature four doors and full-sized backseats. The mega cab features four doors and massive interior space for passengers.

The Tradesmen is your base-level Ram 2500. This is a bare bones work truck with no extra frills. It comes with a 5.7-L V-8 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. This truck comes in a whopping 30 different color variations. Everything from standards like white and silver are offered. For something different, oranges, yellows and bright greens are available.

SLT trims get chromed bumpers. They also receive a temperature and compass display.

Laramie models offer leather-trimmed, heated seats. The interior uses upgraded materials and even features wood-grain trim.

Big Horn trims get premium cloth seats. They also offer an 8.4-Inch touchscreen and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Longhorn models are fully equipped with most of Ram's extras. Real wood adorns the interior. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and the Ram features leather upholstery as well.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2018 Ram 2500 excels at every performance category. The base engine is a 5.7-L V-8 that produces 385 hp. Ram's 6.4-L V-8 Hemi engine produces 410 hp with 429 lb-ft of torque. With the premium engine and the right setup, this truck can tow between 9,910 and 16,010 lbs. It can handle bed payloads of 1,466 to 3,497 lbs. This thirsty monster of a truck gets just 15 mpg.

Driving Impressions

The Ram 2500 is a powerful beast with massive amounts of torque. Even the base engine can haul and tow with ease. The premium, Hemi V-8 will keep chugging during the heaviest of work duties.

The Ram 2500 provides a comfortable ride. The crew cab has a special coil-spring suspension that soaks up anything the road or terrain throws at it. Steering and handling are accurate, but lack the feedback of some other trucks in this category.

Conclusion

The 2018 Ram 2500 is a work truck that can still be enjoyed on a long haul. The comfortable ride may be the defining difference for the Ram in a crowded market. The truck is versatile and comes with enough options to make it suitable for any job. The truck provides more than enough power and excellent performance.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Ram 2500 2WD:

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:

  • Example: Base Ram 2500 2WD invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
  • What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)

Note: All Ram 2500 2WD MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
