Dodge Ram 2500:
The comfortable, capable 2500 is a muscular workhorse that can be outfitted plain or fancy. Configurations range from the base Tradesman to the deluxe Power Wagon Laramie. It will tow up to 17,980 pounds; payload is 3160 pounds. Two gasoline V-8s—a 400-lb-ft 5.7-liter and a 429-lb-ft 6.4-liter—are offered, both with a six-speed automatic transmission. There’s also a turbo-diesel 6.7-liter inline-six with six-speed manual or automatic; we love the diesel’s 800 lb-ft of torque with the automatic.
Heavy-duty models account for roughly one-quarter of all full-size-pickup sales, which may come as a mild surprise. Even in a robust truck market, these big boys are more than a little overqualified for daily use. So-called lifestyle buyers may have played a significant role in growing the pickup market, but it’s hard to perceive the heavy-duty variety as suitable for all-around family duty.
The Dodge Ram 2500 HD is an excellent example. With dimensions rivaling a World War II landing craft, a towering bluff bow, lofty climb-in height, and king-size Ram logos, this 2500HD has massive street presence. If casting shadows over the neighbor’s house doesn’t suffice to intimidate, add the potent baritone throb of a big Hemi V-8 engine. Big in this context means a pushrod 6.4-liter V-8 rated for 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. This is the middle engine in Ram’s HD inventory; the standard powerplant is the 383-hp 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, but upgrading the Laramie trim level to this larger-displacement Hemi is free (and it brings a stronger alternator). The maximum-capability flagship sails behind a potent 6.7-liter Cummins turbo-diesel inline-six, whomping up enough torque to pull the planet’s skin a little tighter: 800 lb-ft at 1600 rpm. (That’s with the automatic transmission; it makes only 660 lb-ft with a six-speed manual.)
On the other hand, the HD of today isn’t the brawny, no-frills work truck of yesteryear. Luxury has filtered up to these big bruisers, and if their massive capabilities mitigate against enlisting one as the primary family vehicle for those who don’t frequently haul marble slabs or loads of cast-iron lawn statuary, there’s that intangible: image. Since the demise of the civilian Hummer, no vehicle exudes machismo like a big ol’ all-American pickup truck.
