Ram 2500 Regular Cab

Ram 2500 Regular Cab

About Ram 2500 Regular Cab

Half-ton pickups are more capable than ever, but heavy-duty 3/4- and 1-ton models are where you'll find the serious towing and payload numbers. And in that race for the biggest numbers, the 2016 Ram 2500 and 3500 HD models currently sit in front of their Ford F250/350 and Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra HD rivals. For example, the Ram 3500 equipped with the high-output Cummins turbodiesel with its class-leading 900 lb-ft of torque can tow up to 31,210 pounds. Yet despite its capability, the big Ram trucks are comfortable thanks to a multi-link rear suspension. The standard Cummins diesel is available with a manual transmission in addition to the automatic, filling out a wide range of choices that make the Ram a best pick for heavy-duty chores.

"I had a string of Ford diesels over the years and I decided to ditch Ford after I got shafted by the 6.0 diesel. Neither Ram nor Ford is problem free but I can say that I have had no more minor problems with the Rams than I had with the Fords, the exception being the engine fiasco with Ford. The Cummins engine is a dream and has a long pedigree. I replaced a U joint on my Ram 2500 while under warranty. Major problem is with the government and all the gadgets attached to the diesel engine activate the check engine light frequently. But no major problem,"

"So far, so great. The new Cummins 6.7 High Output motor is monstrously strong. This is actually my second 6.7 Cummins engine. I traded a 100% stock 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 with 141,000 trouble free miles. It was a great, reliable truck. The newest HO version 6.7 is definitely stronger. This is a much better truck overall with more pulling power, a much nicer interior and a much better styling IMO. The new HO version seems to get a little better mileage than my 07 did. I get about 14.5 mpg in mixed driving (that's calculated by hand), but you have to remember that this engine is still stretching. It may get better mileage after a few thousand miles. I know a lot of people say the 5.9 was a much better motor, but I disagree. The 5.9L was a great engine, but the 6.7L is a big step up in performance. The new ram itself is miles better all around than the other Rams I've owned."

"I bought my new 2011.5 Mega Cab after a long search to replace my aging GMC Duramax which was a very good truck with 268,000 somewhat trouble free miles. I have the 4x4 with every option but the sunroof which I chose the roof marker lights instead. My experience has been awesome thus far, only issues have been with the tire tpms monitoring system which sucks. I leveled mine with Thuren 2.75 springs and Thuren white shocks, it runs awesome post delete with 15.5 city"
