Like a blue collar worker who has never missed a day of work, the 2018 Ram 2500 is the picture of consistency. Year in, year out, the Ram 2500 delivers power, payload, and pricing that doesn’t pillage your wallet in comparison to the competition.
What do we like most about the 2018 Ram 2500? Let’s take a look.
Power is addicting. Don’t believe us? Grip the wheel and let the 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine of the Ram 2500 turbo-charge your drive – then tell us otherwise. For an extra thrill, peak under the hood and gaze upon the 410 horses at your disposal. With 430 pounds/foot of torque, this engine is a force to be reckoned with and places the 2018 Ram 2500 at the top of its class. The 2500 is also consistently known as being among the most reliable trucks on the market.
Not much has changed inside the Ram 2500 this year with the exception of upgraded material and a few technology updates. Those updates include parking sensors, a blind spot monitoring system, stop alert, and a few other bells and whistles that are necessary to keep pace with the competition in 2018. In terms of space, the 2500 has plenty to offer both taller and wider drivers. Legroom feels more than ample and headroom is also never in short supply. This is the perfect truck from which to enjoy the power under the hood.
The 2018 Ram 2500 is masculinity defined. It is the Clint Eastwood of trucks – effortlessly stylish, understated, and rugged. Regarding major changes, there are few in 2018, but this wasn’t a truck that needed a makeover anyway. We do detect some tweaks to the headlights and a slightly redesigned grill, but otherwise the updates are minimal. But, again, why mess with success? This is a great looking truck.
The 2018 Ram 2500 compares favorably to the competition with base models sinking as low as $32,500. The mid level trim is a bit pricier, running anywhere from $36,500 to $45,500. To put all the tricks in your truck you’ll want to consider the most advanced trim which runs about $15,000 higher than the base with prices as low as $47,000. Considering it has the most powerful engine in its class, that can safely be considered a bargain!
The Ram 2500 isn’t a flashy truck – but it doesn’t want to be. It seems perfectly content to be the quiet cowboy that carries a big stick and speaks softly about its own capabilities. And its capabilities are numerous. If you prefer power over flash, substance over style, the 2018 Ram 2500 is absolutely the perfect truck.
