Part of Ram’s signature HD family of pickup trucks, the 2500 and 3500 models are available with the spacious Mega Cab. Both full-size models offer the Cummins diesel engine, and the 3500 trim may be equipped with a high-output version for better towing ratings.
Producing up to 410 horsepower, the 6.4-liter HEMI engine propels the 2021 Ram 2500. Employing the Variable-Cam Timing design, the V-8 powerhouse has a peak torque rating of about 430 pound-feet. Running on gasoline, the standard powertrain tows up to 17,540 pounds. This normally aspirated engine also has a payload capacity of just above 4,000 pounds. When powered by the HEMI powertrain, the 3500 model tows 18,210 pounds. This high-level trim also boasts a payload capacity of nearly 7,700 pounds. Both models extract 850 lb-ft from the 6.7-L Cummins engine. Burning diesel fuel, this turbocharged I-6 engine helps the 2500 edition tow 20,000 pounds. The 3500 trim can tow an additional 2,670 pounds with this six-cylinder propulsion system. You can also buy this heavy-duty Ram truck with the high-output Cummins powertrain that increases the torque production by up to 225 lb-ft. With a boost from this turbo-diesel engine, the 3500 model has an astonishing towing capacity that exceeds the 37,000-pound mark. When running on the Cummins engine, both Ram trucks offer a six-speed automatic transmission made by Aisin. An eight-speed auto gearbox from TorqueFlite works with the HEMI engine. Both transmission systems can be paired with a 4×4 drive and other mechanical components for all-terrain handling. For example, locking differentials significantly increase traction on gravel, rocks, mud, and dirt.
Providing enough space for three adults, the 2021 Ram 2500’s rear seating system may be folded and adjusted. These reclining rear seats also offer best-in-class legroom of 43 inches. Molded into the floor of the second row, the signature Ram Bins are ideal for holding valuable items during road trips. Both Ram HD models also offer climate-controlled front seats with genuine leather upholstery and signature logos.
