Count On the 2016 Ram 2500 to Get the Job Done
The 2016 Ram 2500 is here to make life much easier for you – in more ways than one. Find out just how heavy-duty this truck is below.
Powertrains and Efficiency
In the powertrain department the Ram 2500 has things covered. By providing drivers with the option to choose from three heavy-duty, yet fuel efficient engine choices drivers don’t have to worry about settling for a standard engine that doesn’t fit their needs.
The first available engine is a 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6 engine with the power to deliver an incredibly aggressive 370 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. This engine even gives drivers the ability to choose between a Class-Exclusive six-speed manual transmission and a six-speed automatic transmission. The next level is a six-speed automatic 5.7L HEMI VVT V8 with the ability to provide drivers with power levels reaching 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, there’s the six-speed automatic 6.4L HEMI VVT V8 engine option that delivers an impressive 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque.
Towing and Payload
When it comes to towing and payload capabilities the Ram 2500 has some truly outstanding strength. With Best-in-Class three-fourth ton gas towing the Cummins Turbo Diesel engine is able to blow all other gas engine trucks out of the water by towing as much as 7,403 kg. The Class V hitch addition increases that number all the way to 8,164 kg. The 2500 can also carry an impressive payload of up to 1,810 kg.
The Ram 2500 wouldn’t be able to be the strong and durable truck that it is today without the help of some important performance and handling enhancing elements. The heavy-duty rear air suspension, segment-exclusive multilink coil spring rear suspension, three-link front suspension, front-axle disconnect, and segment-exclusive ram active air technology are just a few of the behind the scenes players that make the Ram 2500’s potential power possible. They also help make the truck one of Canada’s most capable off-road full-size pickup truck.
