In recent years, RAM has lagged behind competition from Ford and GM. But with the introduction of a heavily revised lineup for 2013, Chrysler's rugged trucks are fighting their way to the front of the pack. In addition to a freshened interior, the full-size pickups feature a host of upgraded components including the: transmission, transfer case, brakes and steering and electrical systems.
RAM offers the 2500 in five configurations that start with a base Tradesman and a 5.7-liter V8 that generates 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. While a six-speed automatic transmission with manual capabilities is standard, an available six-speed manual transmission means the RAM is the only full-size pickup on the market with this option. The truck's standard rear-wheel drive can also be upgraded to four-wheel drive.Read more »

Several configurations and trim levels, but steering system is sub-par
Hauling and towing capacity are impressive, though the interior console and front seats are oddly designed
Impressive engine and a large interior, but not available in a 2500 model
The same pluses and minuses as the Silverado 2500HD at a similar price
