Buyer’s Guide to the 2018 Ram 2500

So you think you're ready to upgrade your pickup truck? There are plenty of options available each with impressive features of their own. However, if you want the best mix of everything a pickup truck can offer, there's really only one real choice you can count on every time to get the job done in the Lewisburg, Alleghany and Ronceverte areas.

The 2018 Ram 2500 is a stunning example of everything a pickup truck can be with incredible performance, capability, technology and more. Before you commit to the new Ram 2500, however, it's helpful to know what you're getting into. Check out our handy buyer's guide to the 2018 Ram 2500 and discover if this pickup is really the one for you.

Capability

When it comes to towing capacity, the Ram 2500 is tough to beat. When properly equipped, this truck can tow up to 17,980 pounds without issues. Keep in mind, this is only possible when you opt for the diesel engine. This engine is no joke either. Proven and Legendary is literally in the name of this powerful 6.7-liter I6 turbo engine. The towing capacity comes from its massive 800 lb-ft of torque.

The payload capacity is pretty impressive in its own right. You can load up the bed of this truck with up to 3,990 pounds of cargo, so don't hesitate to carry the heavy stuff. If you opt for the class exclusive rear auto-level air suspension, keeping your payload level is easier than ever. There are even ride height selection to choose from, so you can manually optimize your settings.

Performance

The diesel engine is the clear choice if you want the highest towing capacity available, but the gas engine options shouldn't be ignored. The base model comes with a 5.7-liter HEMI V8. This already includes 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. If that's not enough, you can always upgrade to the incredible heavy duty 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that offers 429 lb-ft of torque and a best in class horsepower of 410. No other truck can offer power like that.

Additionally, you have the option between automatic or manual six speed transmission. Both perform incredibly well, so you won't be sacrificing anything by choosing one over the other. The automatic is electronically controlled to optimize gear ratios for enhanced performance. The manual is not only a class exclusive, but also features a wear compensating clutch pedal.

Technology

Inside the cabin of this automotive beast, you'll find your mobile command center. With an 8.4-inch touchscreen (the largest in its class) and the Uconnect interface, you can turn the cabin of your Ram 2500 into a mobile office. It features all the smartphone connectivity features you could want in addition to built in 4G WiFi. There's even a 7-inch digital cluster on your instrumentation panel that can offer readily available information conveniently right in front of you.
