New 2016 RAM 2500 at Kernersville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for Kernersville, NC

Everyone knows that full-size pickup trucks are getting bigger, fancier, and more powerful by the year. The 2016 Ram 2500, with bells and whistles like leather upholstery, an optional turbodiesel engine, automatic climate control, infotainment systems, high-end audio components, and dedicated off-road abilities, is a far cry from your dad's old sturdy but unremarkable Dodge workhorse. The latest Ram 2500 iterations are again designed to handle backwoods bushwhacking, the daily commute, heavy-duty towing chores, and a night at the theater, all with equal ease--though the latter might present some challenging parking maneuvers for these sizable brutes.

Under the 2500's Hood

The 2016 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty truck comes with performance upgrades, including an improved Cummins diesel that now produces 900 pound-feet of torque. According to Ram, the 6.7 liter diesel delivers the most torque ever offered in a mass-production truck.

The additional 35 pound-feet was obtained thanks to turbo boost calibration for the inline 6-cylinder engine. To handle the increased towing capacity, the rear axle ring gear hardware was strengthened from 12 to 16 bolts on all trucks equipped with the 11.8" axle. The additional hardened bolts and stronger material are used in the differential case to assure long term durability.

Design of RAM 2500

Materials and trim are appropriate by model line, be they the base truck or a Laramie Longhorn Mega Cab with Ram's head embosses on the seat-backs and console and pouch-like map pockets on the seat-backs. We found no fit-and-finish issues. The Longhorn's low-gloss woodwork is unique, and few shiny surfaces generate glare to bother the occupants.

Although a vinyl floor is standard on only the base Tradesman model you can order it with a more upscale interior if it's only your boots that get filthy. Thick mats designed for muck and slush are standard on the Outdoorsman but are available through Mopar accessories. The Crew Cab offers essentially the space of a Regular cab front seat in the back seat as well.

Most Crew Cabs have a split folding rear seat and a center armrest, and all of them have three complete baby seat anchor sets and three adjustable headrests that reach high enough for adults. The back seats flip up for cargo space, with a flat floor underneath. Coat hooks are above the rear window. The rear window can be powered open/close and a defrost-able window is available on most models.

ABS brakes automatically sense when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and will modulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. This increases the vehicles ability to turn while braking.  Stability control automatically senses when the vehicles handling limits have been exceeded and reduces engine power and/or applies select brakes to help prevent the driver from losing control of the vehicle. Front-impact airbags for the driver and passenger have been designed to protect the head during a frontal crash. Give us a call today if you would like more information on the 2016 Ram 2500!
