Ram 2500 Power

Ram 2500 At All Star Dodge Ram near Glendale

In this day and age, you need a truck that will handle anything that you throw at it; rough terrains, heavy loads, and long hauls. The Ram 2500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Glendale is up for those very challenges. Those challenges not only require a strong body, but also a powerful engine. Today we want to talk a little bit about the different engines that are offered on the Ram 2500.

Three engine options lie at the core of the 2017 Ram 2500: a 5.7-liter V-8, a 6.4-liter V-8, and a 6.7-liter turbo-diesel inline six-cylinder. Both gas engines are paired with six-speed automatic transmissions; the diesel gets a six-speed manual option or a choice of two six-speed automatics. Both rear-wheel drive (2WD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) models are available in the Ram 2500, with a wide range of cab styles and bed lengths.

The 5.7-liter that forms the base engine option is rated at 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Step up to the 6.4-liter and output rises to 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. The diesel, available in three specifications, pushes the 2017 Ram 2500 to beast mode, with up to 385 hp and 900 lb-ft of torque. The two lower-output versions of the diesel are rated at 350 hp / 660 lb-ft and 370 hp / 800 lb-ft, respectively. (This information was compiled from ram.com and motortrend.com.)

While a nearly infinite list of cab, bed, engine, transmission, and drive train options influence total towing capacity, the Ram 2500 can be configured to tow up to 17,980 lbs.

For more information on the Ram 2500, head to All Star and talk with a member of their team. They would be happy to take you on a test drive so that you can experience for yourself just how powerful the Ram 2500 truly is.

Ram 2500 4WD Tough

Ram 2500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville

One of the very best truck manufacturers on the market today is Ram. They make strong and powerful trucks that can handle anything that you throw at them. Today we want to share with you some of great things about the Ram 2500 4WD. If you have any additional questions be sure to contact All Star Dodge Ram near Mehlville.

It’s super tough – The 2015 Ram 2500 is clearly one of the toughest pickup trucks on the market. When working in a rugged environment, the truck’s tank-like build quality enables it to take a pounding. Owners can also look forward to an incredibly long service life. The truck’s overall durability gives it a big advantage over a regular pickup truck.

It’s got a Hemi – Over the last decade, the Hemi engine has reemerged as one of the most powerful V-8 engines on the market. With a total output of 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, the 6.4-liter engine provides plenty of muscle. When fitted with the proper towing accessories, the V8-powered Ram 2500 can tow up to 16,300 pounds.

It’s got diesel power – In terms of sheer power, the 6.7-liter Cummings diesel engine is a spectacular performer. With the assistance of a turbocharger, the beastly engine is able to pump out 370 horsepower and a monumental 800 pound-feet of torque. It can pull hefty loads with ease. In fact, the diesel-powered Ram 2500 has a towing capacity of nearly 18,000 pounds.

It’s a 4×4 – The truck’s capable 4WD system gives it an extra level of ruggedness. When traveling in snow or deep mud, the tires just keep churning. Drivers will find the enhanced traction to be extremely useful throughout the year. In an effort to enhance the truck’s versatility, Ram also designed the 2500 with a tow/haul mode.

Power Wagon Upping Their Game

Los Angeles USA - November 19 2015: Ram 2500 Power Wagon on display during the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Ram 2500 at All Star near Saint Charles

When you want a powerful truck, you think Ram. For years they have provided their customers with incredible trucks that have impressive towing capabilities and that can haul amazing amounts of weight. Today we want to look at the new Ram 2500 Power Wagon that is sure to entice those who are looking for a new truck.

“The 2016 Power Wagon was heavy on the chrome, had an pretty ridiculous optional graphics package, and featured questionable red grille inserts. Ram has addressed this for 2017 by replacing all the chrome with menacing black trim. The billet-silver Ram badge in the nose is the only piece of bright work, and goodness, it all works.”-autoblog.com

Perhaps most importantly, the bits that make the Power Wagon a Power Wagon are more or less unchanged. The 6.4-liter Hemi V8 still produces 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque and is still matched with a 66RFE six-speed automatic and a manually-shifted transfer case. It’ll still tow 10,030 pounds, ford up to 30 inches of water, and has a standard 12,000-pound Warn winch at the front.

Changes elsewhere are much more modest. You can black out the cabin headliner, and the once plain fabric seats have been spiced up with inserts that ape the tread pattern of the standard Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires. It’s a small touch, but it breaks up the otherwise solemn black interior.

For more information on the Ram 2500 Power Wagon, stop by All Star near Saint Charles. Their friendly staff would be more than happy to take you on a test drive and to tell you all about the different features that the Ram 2500 Power Wagon has to offer. It’s time that you get a powerful truck, it’s time that you get the Ram 2500.

Ram 2500 – Going Off Road

Los Angeles USA - November 19 2015: Ram 2500 Power Wagon on display during the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Ram 2500 at All Star Dodge Ram near Clayton

The different model line ups for the 2017 year are looking really great across the board. We are seeing a lot of redesigns for a vast majority of vehicles regardless of the manufacturer. Not all of the redesigns are happening to the base models, some are happening by means of an addition of a new or improved trim. On such example of the later is the Ram 2500 that is available at All Star Dodge Ram near Clayton.

The Ram 2500 has been a staple of the Ram line of trucks for a long time. It has the reputation for being strong, comfortable, and a good looking vehicle. The year 2017 is going to be big for the Ram 2500 as the newest trim edition will be the 4×4 Off-Road.

“Appropriately called 4×4 Off-Road, the package includes trail-ready goodies such as a pair of large hooks up front that allow the 2500 to tow obstacles out of the way or serve as an anchor. It also features skid plates that protect vital mechanical components like the transfer case, and fender flares on all four corners that emphasize the truck’s width. Trucks equipped with the 4×4 Off-Road package ride on all-terrain tires manufactured by Firestone, and either 18- or 20-inch wheels depending on which trim level is selected.”

“Off-road prowess is further enhanced by monotube shock absorbers manufactured by Blistein. Visually, sizable “4×4 Off-Road” stickers on both sides of the bed inform other motorists that they’re not looking at a run-of-the-mill Ram 2500 Heavy Duty.” -digitaltrends.com

This addition to the Ram 2500 trims is sure to turn a number of heads, not just for the off-road aficionados but for the average driver alike. We will eagerly await the arrival of this model and anticipate everything that it might have to offer!

Ram 2500: King of the Winter

Los Angeles USA - November 19 2015: Ram 2500 Power Wagon on display during the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Ram 2500 at All Star near Creve Couer

We are just past the middle of January, half down, half to go! This cold winter weather is almost behind us. Living near St. Louis means we get to enjoy all of the seasons but that they are sometimes really extreme. Winter driving can be really tricky at times and it is for this reason that the Ram 2500 from All Star near Creve Coeur is one of the most popular truck purchases; it is great at getting around in rough winter weather!

The Ram 2500 has a durable body and amazing four wheel drive (if you selected this option). The truck itself is heavy enough to help create traction on snowy roads but not to much as to get stuck. The four wheel drive enables you to have amazing amounts of control while driving. Few other truck manufacturers can boast in similar areas. The tires that are on the Ram 2500 are also a pretty big deal. These tires are made for more difficult driving tasks like hauling; this makes them great for getting around in the snow.

Why are tires such a big deal when it comes to winter driving? Does the quality of your tires really matter? The answer is this, tires are a big deal because they are what holds you to the roads when they are covered in ice or snow. Good quality tires will have a hearty tread designed to help create friction in rough conditions. The Ram 2500 can also be equipped with specialty snow tires for an added level of driving control.

For more information on the Ram 2500, head to the All Star Dodge dealer today. They would be more than happy to show you all of the features that make the 2500 King of Winter. Stop by today!
