Dodge has long used the RAM name for its pickups, but recently spun it off as a standalone brand. The 2500 is a heavy duty truck bridging the gap between the standard full-size 1500 and the brawnier 3500. Powered by a standard 5.7-liter V8, a Cummins turbo-diesel is optional.
The 2500 can be ordered with rear- or front-wheel drive. Though known as a workhorse, the RAM 1500 is available in several trim levels ranging from the basic ST to the luxurious Laramie package.
