Which of the Ram 2500’s Trims is Right For You?
If you’re shopping for a new pickup truck, your choice is relatively easy. Each of the Ram pickup trucks offers unrivaled power and drivability, and each of their accompanying trims helps complement the already-existing features and capabilities.
With a focus on the Ram 2500, we’re going to explore the pickup’s most affordable trims. That way, when it’s time for your to go shopping for a Ram 2500 in Miami, you’ll know exactly what to look for…
The lowest on the 2500’s totem pole (starting at only $31,780) the Tradesman provides everything you’d need for the worksite. Available in either a regular or crew cab design, the Tradesman will make your early-morning drive to work bearable. The vinyl 40/20/40 split bench seats provide plenty of room for you and your passenger to spread out, and you can keep yourself entertained via the UConnect Radio 3.0.
There are several additions to the Ram 2500 that will certainly make your day at the job easier. The halogen quad headlamps will allow you to see when you’re on the worksite prior to dawn, and the 12-volt auxiliary power outlet means your tools won’t ever lose their charge. Of course, we have to mention the impressive 17-inch styled steel wheels, which will help your pickup drive over any obstacle.
Perhaps most important are the safety capabilities. The standard 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine should allow you to travel through any terrain, and the motor certainly plays a role in the incredible 17,980-pound towing capacity.
Next up on the list is the SLT trim, which comes in at $35,755. The vehicle shares many of the same attributes of the Tradesman, including the 12-volt outlet, the HEMI V8 engine, and the excellent towing abilities. The trim also builds on those features, as well as including several new amenities.
Similar to the Tradesman, the SLT is available as a regular or crew cab, but this trim also offers the option of a mega cab. Similarly, customers will still be receiving the bench seats, but the SLT includes a cloth material and a 40/20/20 configuration.
Exclusive features include power door locks and power sliding rear windows, which certainly help in boosting the vehicle’s convenience. Meanwhile, engineers have supplemented that incredible towing capacity with the addition of an 18,000-pound Class V Trailer Tow Hitch and a Trailer Brake Control.
Third on the list is the Big Horn trim, which starts at $41,855. Several features stick around, like the availability of either a crew or mega cab design, the HEMI V8, and the 18,000-pound trailer hitch (although the towing capabilities have been downgraded a bit to 17,510 pounds).
That power outlet has been upgraded, providing 115-volts of power, while the UConnect has been upgraded to the 8.4NAV system (including the 8.4-inch touchscreen). Additionally, the seats have been manipulated again, as the Big Horn offers premium cloth 60/40 split folding back seats.
New additions to this trim include the addition of large fog lights, as well as anti-spin rear differential. This is a helpful safety feature that will keep your 2500 under control, especially as you’re traveling on slick and icy roads.
Of course, the list doesn’t end there. Other trim options include:
- Laramie ($46,440)
- Outdoorsman ($46,420)
- Power Wagon Tradesman ($46,560)
- Power Wagon ($51,160)
- Laramie Longhorn ($52,215)
- Limited ($55,500)
- Power Wagon Laramie ($57,580)
Regardless of your decision, you can be assured that you’re going to be getting one of the best pickups on the market in the Ram 2500. Each of the trims offers exclusive interior and exterior amenities, and you’ll be able to upgrade your 2500 for a great price!
