Overview

Don't let the numbers fool you – despite Ram's perennial third-place finish in full-size truck sales, the brand has never been more eager to move up the podium. The all-new 2019 Ram 2500 truck reflects this ambition. Equal parts beauty and brawn, it's ready to coddle occupants in luxury while lugging incredible loads. Whether extreme towing is in the cards or not, this rig is bound to impress even the staunchest Ford or Chevrolet fan.

What's New for 2019

The Ram 2500 has been fully redesigned for 2019.

RAM 2500

Choosing Your RAM 2500

Like its less-capable 1500 sibling, the 2500 offers a bevy of trim levels from which to choose. The full roster of cabs and bed lengths are also available, which means picking out a Regular, Crew, or Mega Cab and either a 6-foot-4-inch or 8-foot bed.

Stick with the standard powertrain and Ram gives you a 410-horsepower, 6.4-liter V8 engine putting out 429 pound-feet of torque. It's enough juice to tow up to 17,580 pounds when properly equipped. By properly equipped, Ram is referring to a Regular Cab truck outfitted with the 6-foot-4-inch bed and a 4.10 rear axle.

The 6.4-liter motor is now backed by the same, but beefed up, eight-speed automatic transmission found in the light-duty trucks, marking the first time more than six gears have found their way into the Heavy Duty lineup. We'd venture a guess to say this will probably improve gas mileage, but since the EPA considers this class of truck too heavy for their efficiency scale, no one can say for sure until real-world results come trickling in.

The big kahuna of this segment has always been the vaunted diesel engine. In this case, the 2500's optional 6.7-liter straight-six turbodiesel built by Cummins. The massive six-cylinder motor has been a staple in the Ram lineup for over three decades now, and this latest version has been thoroughly reworked.

A lighter block, new cylinder head design, lighter and stronger internal parts, and other notable improvements all contribute to its output of 370 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque. All that twisting power amounts to a maximum tow rating of 19,780 pounds. The cost for this much torque is $9,100.

Keeping the Cummins engine in check is a six-speed automatic gearbox built by Aisin. It's a stout unit, but fans of the stick shift will be saddened to learn that the six-speed manual is no longer available. Its disappearance means there's no longer any full-size pickup truck that lets drivers row their own gears. RIP, three-pedaled friend.

To make these rigs more livable, Ram has updated the 2500 lineup to include the same level of comfort, convenience, and ease of use that pervades the light-duty truck. Advancements found across all trims include push-button start, an active noise cancellation system for a quieter cabin, and 258 liters of total storage space.

There's a cornucopia of available packages that do their best to overwhelm and intimidate. There isn't space here to detail each one, but a few widely-available packages are worth mentioning.

The Safety Group ($2,195 on base models, but cheaper elsewhere as more features become standard) is one such standout. It includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, LED lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and adaptive high beams. Some iteration of this package is available on every trim, as even the prestigious Limited trim doesn't get all of these features standard.

The Tow Technology Group aids trailering endeavors with a surround-view camera, trailer-reverse guidance, trailer-tow mirror, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

The $495 Off-Road Group is only available on the four-wheel-drive 2500 trucks; it adds Bilstein shocks, skid plates for the transfer case, hill-descent control, all-terrain tires, tow-hooks, and the all-important off-road decals.

Mechanical options with widespread availability include a selection of heavy-duty alternators, a $445 limited-slip differential, and a $1,595 auto-leveling rear suspension.

The 2500 trucks are offered in six different trim levels. All prices below reflect the cheapest iteration of the corresponding trim. Note that four-wheel drive is a $2,900 option on all models except the Power Wagon, where it comes standard.

RAM 2500

Tradesman

The entry-level model is the aptly-named Tradesman, which starts at $35,090 (all prices include the $1,695 destination charge). Tradesman models come standard with the Regular Cab and 8-foot bed but can also be configured as a Crew Cab with either bed.

The Tradesman aims to be as workaday as its namesake, and doesn't come with many of the frivolities found on higher-trim trucks. Vinyl bench seats, 17-inch steel wheels, and black bumpers front and rear speak to this rig's intention as a tool for the job site. It does, however, come with air conditioning, a four-speaker audio system, an alarm, hill-start assist, and a 5-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth, an aux adapter, and two USB ports.

One interesting option specific to the Tradesman is the Power Wagon Equipment Group ($7,995), which is only available on Crew Cabs with four-wheel drive. It's exactly what it professes to be: the off-road hardware of the Power Wagon installed on this contractor special. The exact equipment is spelled out below under the Power Wagon heading, but, suffice to say, it promises to make quite the off-road sleeper truck.

The Level 1 Popular Equipment Group ($895) includes power windows and locks, power-adjustable mirrors, an overhead console, and chrome door releases. A Level 2 Equipment Group ($995) adds keyless entry, cloth upholstery, and a rear sliding window to the equipment found in the Level 1.

Other options include instrument-panel auxiliary switches ($145), a CD player ($345), a tri-fold tonneau cover ($695), a spray-in bedliner ($565), a rear window defroster ($195), rear parking sensors ($295), and two additional speakers ($100).

RAM 2500

Big Horn

The Big Horn starts at $39,440. Like the Tradesman, it's available with both the Crew Cab as well as the Regular Cab. Additional standard features found here include chrome bumpers and trim, 18-inch steel wheels, power-folding and heated mirrors, trailer brake control, and remote keyless entry. All the contents of the Level 2 Popular Equipment Group have also been made standard. There's also more premium interior trim to dress things up.

As with the Tradesman, there are Level 1 and Level 2 Popular Equipment Groups on offer. The Level 1 ($1,995) includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, premium cloth upholstery, 18-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, courtesy lights, a glovebox light, and power-adjustable pedals. The Level 2 ($4,195) adds all of the Level 1 equipment along with a 7-inch driver information display, heated front seats and steering wheel, front and rear parking assist, remote start, and a dampened tailgate.

The Premium Lighting Group ($995) brings LED headlights, taillights, and fog lights, while the Heated Seats and Wheel Group ($445) adds what its name suggest along with steering wheel-mounted audio controls.

Individual options include bucket seats ($295), blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert ($995), parking assist ($395), and an 8.4-inch touchscreen ($795).

RAM 2500

Laramie

With a base price of $50,895, the mid-range Laramie takes a dramatic 10-grand step up from the Big Horn. The sizable upcharge brings eight-way power adjustment for the leather-upholstered split bench, a unique front grille, LED interior lighting, front center cushion storage, heated front seats, a rear 60/40-split folding rear seat, additional power outlets and USB ports, and dual-zone climate control. The features from the Big Horn's Level 2 Equipment Group are also included as standard.

The two primary packages are again the Level 1 and 2 Equipment Groups. The Level 1 ($1,600) includes automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, power pedals, memory functionality for the seats, mirrors, radio, and pedals, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, a remote tailgate release, ventilated seats, and a CD player. The Level 2 ($3,995) adds SiriusXM radio, wireless charging, heated second-row seats, HD radio, navigation, and a 17-speaker audio system.

The Towing Technology Group ($1,095) brings a surround-view camera, trailer reverse guidance, a cargo view camera, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

About the only other tech feature the Level 2 doesn't come with is the 12-inch touchscreen. This piece of modern hardware is available individually for $1,295. Further standalone features include a sunroof ($1,095) and leather-swathed bucket seats ($545).

RAM 2500

Power Wagon

Uniquely positioned within the 2500 lineup is the $54,795 Power Wagon. Claimed to be the most capable off-road full-size pickup, the Power Wagon is notable for the arsenal of hardware hiding underneath. Namely, there's specially-tuned Bilstein shocks, an Articulink suspension allowing for serious amounts of vertical wheel movement, electronically-disconnecting sway bars, locking differentials, a 12,000-pound winch, a 4.10 rear axle, and 17-inch wheels wearing LT285/70/R17 Goodyear all-terrain tires.

From a distance, the bold graphic pattern separates the Power Wagon from its brethren – there's nothing subtle about the wide stripe running down the bedside just aft of the rear doors or the exclusive upside-down-U grill pattern. Inside, there's a cloth bench with an exclusive upholstery pattern and eight-way power adjustment for the driver. The 8.4-inch touchscreen is standard.

Like the other trucks, there are both Level 1 and Level 2 Equipment Groups on offer. The Level 1 ($1,695) includes heated seats and steering wheel, a dampened tailgate, remote start, power-adjustable pedals, a CD player, and a remote tailgate release. The Level 2 ($5,595) adds a nine-speaker Alpine audio system, a 115-volt outlet, power-adjustable auxiliary tow mirrors, dual USB ports, eight-way power passenger adjustment, leather upholstery, LED interior lights, and rain-sensing wipers, among other things.

RAM 2500

Longhorn

The Longhorn is the second from the top and costs $58,195. Additional equipment over the Laramie includes real wood trim, genuine leather seating with front heated and ventilated bucket seats, navigation, premium LED lighting, full-length chrome running boards, heated second-row seats, and memory functions for seats, radio, pedals, and mirrors.

The Level 1 Equipment Group ($3,495) includes the 12-inch touchscreen, the 17-speaker audio system, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, power deployable running boards, a wireless charging pad, and SiriusXM radio. There's no Level 2 Equipment Group this far up the trim level pyramid.

RAM 2500

Limited

The chromed-out, feature-laden Limited tops the 2500 pecking order and costs $66,335. It comes standard with the contents of the Longhorn's Level 1 Equipment Group along with 20-inch wheels, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, a surround-view camera, and luxury interior trimmings. There are no exclusive extra packages for the Limited.

CarsDirect Tip

The Big Horn is the sweet spot in the 2019 Ram 2500 lineup: not too pricey, yet available with all the features you'd want in a truck. We'd add the Level 1 Equipment Group and the Tow Technology Package before heading on our way. If towing regularly is in the cards – and it probably is if you're considering a bruiser like this – we'd also upgrade to the diesel engine. It makes hauling anything an effortless exercise.
