What’s New For 2017?
For the new model year, Ram added the Power Wagon model, which is off-road focused, able to navigate you through tough terrain. Another addition is the 4x4 off-road package, which includes a wide variety of additional options that are optimized for all-terrain driving. The trims Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited acquire a new standard engine, a 6.4L V8 (instead of the previous 5.7L V8)
In-Between Heavy Hauler

This engine allows you to tow 13,890 lbs. Also available is the 6.4L HEMI V8, which produces 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft. of torque. This engine lets you tow a bit more, 16,320 lbs. Finally, the Ram 2500 is available with the 6.7L Cummins turbo I6 diesel engine that produces a bit less horsepower - 370 - but an incredible amount of torque at 800 lb-ft. This engine also delivers the most towing capacity, best in its class for a ¾-ton pickup, at 17,980 lbs. Customers can also choose from a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission for the Ram 2500.

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.
