The 2019 Ram 2500 Rethinks the Heavy-Duty Pickup Truck Concept

Passenger cars are constantly getting new features, fresh styling, and more advanced technologies, but commercial grade pickup trucks are often left out, remaining largely the same year after year and decade after decade. Luckily, it looks like RAM is putting an end to that era, releasing a new version of the RAM 2500 heavy duty pickup truck that offers you all the luxuries, technologies, and styling you could want in a truck--and a whole lot more. The new 2019 RAM 2500 is out to prove that a work horse can still be just as comfortable, stylish, and well-equipped as a luxury sedan, and with RAM's growing success, other truck makers are likely to follow suit.

More Heavy-Duty Utility and Capability

First and foremost, you need your heavy-duty pickup truck to be heavy-duty. That's no problem in the new RAM 2500. The legendary HEMI V8 and timeless Cummins turbo diesel I6 return to the RAM 2500 with best-in-class capabilities. The HEMI 6.4-liter V8 RAM 2500 brings your 429 pound-feet of torque and 410 horsepower, enough to haul 6,600 pounds of payload or up to 17,130 pounds of trailer.

Cummins turbo diesel RAM 2500 models offer improved performance for 2019, bumping up to 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque for a tow rating of up to 21,560 pounds and a payload capacity of up to 5,730 pounds.

The RAM 2500 is well-known for its durability, and this year is no exception. The RAM 2500 is constructed with a heavy-duty fully-boxed 98.5% high-strength steel frame, featuring an available auto-leveling rear air suspension for improved comfort and capability.

Off-road enthusiasts will enjoy the new RAM 2500 Power Wagon, which comes equipped with a WARN ZEON-12 12,000-pound winch, locking differentials, Bilstein gas-charged shocks, and all-terrain tires. A wealth of off-road features and four-wheel-drive are available across the RAM 2500 range.

You can configure the new RAM 2500 to meet a wide range of needs--it's available with two different cab sizes, two different bed lengths, two different engines, four-wheel-drive and two-wheel-drive, and seven different trim-levels: the RAM 2500 Tradesman, Big Horn, Laramie, Power Wagon, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited.

Advancing Technology

The RAM 2500 is offered with a complete complement of advanced technologies, making the RAM 2500 one of the most advanced commercial grade pickups available. The largest-in-class 12-inch touchscreen gives you a hand on the jobsite by displaying a Bird's-Eye View of your vehicle, monitoring your trailer, and checking on your cargo.

Premium harman/kardon surround sound offers you and the crew high-quality audio, and a complete suite of safety systems like Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Adaptive Forward Lighting help keep you safe on the road and the trail.

All your driving vitals are easily accessible in the instrument cluster display screen, including trailer and truck tire pressure monitoring and vehicle alerts. You'll also find satellite navigation with traffic information, smartphone integration, and just about any other tech feature you could want integrated into the new 2019 RAM 2500.

The Luxury Work Truck

The 2019 RAM 2500 may just be the most luxurious full-size heavy-duty pickup truck you can buy. The spacious and smooth cab is available with class-exclusive complete leather upholstery, including door panels, arm-rests, trim pieces, ventilated and heated seats, and more. An advanced noise cancellation system helps keep the cab quiet during rough drives and at busy jobsites. You'll find more high-grade wood trim in the cabin than any competitor as well, making the RAM 2500's cab as refined as a luxury sedan. Even the back of the cab is luxurious, featuring reclining rear seats with 43 inches of legroom.

Why the RAM 2500 is the Heavy-Duty Truck to Watch

The new 2019 RAM 2500 could change the way heavy-duty trucks are built, proving that a hard-working heavy-duty commercial-grade pickup truck can be just as comfortable, classy, and well-equipped with modern tech and safety features as anything else on the road. The 2019 RAM 2500 is the commercial grade pickup to go with if you're looking for heavy-duty hauling capability, legendary durability, and all the comfort, style, and features of a modern car or SUV.
