Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2021 RAM 2500: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor

Model Preview

The fifth-generation RAM 2500 arrived in 2019 with a tweaked look, new powertrain options, an upgraded frame, and more. In 2020, this heavy-duty pickup remained mostly unchanged, except for its new 50-gallon fuel tank and new optional safety features. With its design still fresh, the 2021 RAM 2500 will hit showrooms as a carryover model, although it will be gaining a new Night Edition model.

The 2021 RAM 2500 will continue with all the same styling cues, including the massive grille, wraparound headlights, eye-catching hood ridges, and more. It’ll also continue with all the weight-saving efforts the new-generation RAM 2500 debuted with, including an aluminum hood, and high-strength steel body panels and frame, that helped it trim up to 143 pounds.

During its redesign, the RAM 2500 gained a more modern cabin that included a new steering wheel, more color contrasts, an upgraded center stack, upgraded upholstery, additional sound-deadening materials, and a cleaner HVAC interface. This heavy-duty pickup also gained loads of new tech, including active noise-cancelation, an available 12-inch Uconnect 4C infotainment system, a configurable 7-inch driver-information center, five USB ports, and more.

RAM 2500

The 2021 RAM 2500 boasts a trio of powertrain options, starting with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that pumps out 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque and pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The diesel engines start with a 6.7-liter inline-six Cummins with 370 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque and top out with an upgraded 6.7-liter with 400 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. The lower-output diesel engine pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission, while the 400-hp variant uses an Aisin AS69RC heavy-duty six-speed automatic.

Like most heavy-duty pickups, the current RAM 2500 hasn’t been through crash tests, nor do we expect it to. What we know is it has available advanced safety tech, including cargo and surround-view camera systems, blind-spot monitors, forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, and active lane control, on higher trim levels.

Pricing & Release Date

RAM has announced that the 2021 Night Editions will be arriving in late 2020. We expect the other trim options to arrive around the same time.

Pricing will range from $35,790 to $68,030 (including destination fees).

This heavy-duty pickup will compete with the Chevy Silverado 2500HD, Ford F-250 Super Duty, and GMC Sierra 2500HD.
