What are my powertrain options for the 2017 RAM 2500?


The 2017 RAM 2500 has a wide array of powertrain options, allowing buyers to customize their truck to fit their preferences and priorities. While most 2500s come standard with either a 5.7 or 6.4-liter gasoline V8 engine, there is also a turbocharged 6.7-liter six-cylinder diesel available. The 6.4-liter HEMI V8 reaches 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. In addition to engine choice, the 2500 is available with a six-speed automatic and a six -speed manual transmission, and either rear or part-time four-wheel drive. Overall, the 2017 RAM 2500 scores top ranks in driving, handling, steering, braking, and acceleration. Towing and hauling are also standout scores for the 2500, which can tow up to 17,980 pounds and haul up to 3,990 pounds in the bed.


What trim levels and configurations does the 2500 come in?


Eight trim levels build upon each other to add countless features to the 2500. Starting with the Tradesman, which comes standard with a 40/20/40 split front bench seat in either vinyl or cloth upholstery, six-speaker audio system with USB and auxiliary hookups, and automatic headlights, the 2017 RAM lineup continues up to the decked-out Limited with chrome exterior trim, black leather upholstery, and keyless entry and ignition. New this year is also the Power Wagon trim, designed for off-road prowess with numerous upgrades on the mechanical end of things, such as Bilstein off-road shock absorbers and a manual transfer case. In addition to the eight available trim levels, the 2017 RAM 2500 comes in four cab/bed style configurations. The four-door Crew Cab can be paired with either a long (8') or short (6'4") beds. The other cab options are matched to one bed length or the other, with the 2-door Regular Cab paired to the 8' bed and the extended Mega Cab only coming with the shorter bed.


How does the RAM 2500 ride?


Between the three available cab styles, buyers can feel free to prioritize cabin interior if seating space is important to them. The extended crew-sized Mega Cab provides superior back seat comfort with ample leg room and adjustable, reclining seats all around. All cab styles include the industry-leading 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Uconnect technology for ease of use. RAM's coil suspension gives the 2500 a smooth and comfortable ride, while cabin design limits road, engine and wind noise for driver and passengers. Large mirrors and an optional rearview camera assist with visibility.
