2018 Ram 2500 Review

Here in the Berlin, Ocean City, and Salisbury areas, Ram seems to be synonymous with power. These trucks have the muscle, functionality, and comforts necessary to help you make it to the beach (or to power through the winter) in style.

At Berlin Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we've gotten behind the wheel of the 2018 Ram 2500 on many occasions. Here are our key takeaways from those drives. 

2018 Ram 2500 Performance Specs

One of the reasons why drivers tend to gravitate towards a pickup truck over a sedan or even an SUV is the sheer muscle. Few vehicles have as much brawn as your standard pickup.

However, the 2018 Ram 2500 is no standard truck. It offers four different powertrain options, but the 5.7L HEMI® V8 in the base trim alone is enough to generate as much as 383 HP and 400 lb-ft of torque.

That kind of power would probably burn out the engine of a lesser vehicle. However, the Ram 2500 has you covered here.

Standard in the Ram 2500 is a next generation engine cooler and heavy-duty engine cooling. Both these combine to continuously moderate your engine, ensuring that it runs smoothly and powerfully for years to come.

Towing & Off-Road Capabilities

Since you've got so much power in the 2018 Ram 2500, it shouldn't come as any surprise that you've got a pretty big towing capacity too. With all the right equipment, you'll be able to haul as much as 17,610 pounds of cargo.

Of course, like we said, some helpful equipment is necessary for this job. The class V receiver hitch and 7-pin wiring harness are standard. However, if you're interested in serious hauling, you'll want to add in features such as the available trailer brake controls and powered black trailer tow mirrors.

Good handling is a major boon here, too. The Ram 2500 comes standard with a 4x2 driveline configuration. However, you can also add in the 4x4 configuration. When paired with electronic stability control, this configuration ensured you can handle rocky or otherwise slippery roads.

2018 Ram 2500 Interior Comfort

With so many-adventure ready features, there's a good chance that the Ram 2500 is going to be your new road-trip vehicle. In which case, it's additional amenities and comforts are really going to come in handy.

There are three different cabs available in the Ram 2500. You can choose either a regular cab, which seats two, or the crew and mega cabs, which both seat five.

In each cab, you'll have your pick of cloth, leather, or vinyl seating. While vinyl or leather may be better for those messy adventures, cloth is always a comfortable option.

Plenty of technologies come standard in the Ram 2500, including Uconnect® 3 with the 5-inch touchscreen and 6-speaker audio. This even features a USB port and integrated voice commands with Bluetooth®.
