Ram 2500 Engine Specs

2018 Ram 2500 SilverAs a purpose-built work model, the Ram 2500 offers a range of powerful engine options to suit your toughest jobs. The base engine is a 6.4-liter V8 gas engine that produces 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, which can haul a total of 7,680 pounds.

The 6.7-liter inline-size turbodiesel is the optional engine and comes in a 400-horsepower, 1,000-pound-foot configuration, or a 370-horsepower, 850-pound-foot configuration. Rear-wheel drive is standard for most models, though four-wheel drive is available. Two transfer cases are on the offer as well, one of which is designed for maximum towing.


The Ram 2500 is available with three bed configurations: two-door Regular Cab, four-door Crew Cab, and four-door Mega Cab. Crew cab models pair with a 6-foot-4 or 8-foot bed, while regular cab models pair with an 8-foot bed, and Mega Cabs pair with a 6-foot-4 bed.

The lineup starts with the work-fleet Tradesman model, which is filled with practical features and durable surfaces but moves through luxury options with decadent amenities, such as the Limited, Laramie, and Laramie Longhorn Edition—a special edition model with signature badging. The Big Horn and Power Wagon are available as well, which are specialized models that improve the appearance or off-road capability, respectively. All these trim levels have individual options and features packages for customization.

Interior Design

The Ram 2500 interior is well-designed inside and out, with most of the interior dimensions carrying over unchanged. Five adults can fit in the crew cab model, which has plenty of head- and legroom, and upper-level trims have an abundance of comfort and convenience upgrades.

A 5-inch display screen is standard for the work-spec trims, but an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system is standard for most models. The upper-level trims get an optional upgrade of a 12-inch touchscreen, which is not only the largest in the class, but also crisp and clear for enhanced entertainment and visibility.

Towing Capacity

Thanks to an upgraded rear-axle structural crossmember with a Fifth-Wheel/Gooseneck Prep Package that includes a bed-mounted seven-pin connector, mounting hardware, and covers, the Ram 2500 has better towing capacity than any other in the segment.

With the package and turbodiesel engine, the Ram 2500 can achieve a towing capacity of 17,390 pounds standard towing and 18,550 gooseneck towing.
