2017 Ram 2500 Review
For many truck lovers, Ram is synonymous with muscle. This isn’t too surprising. If you’ve ever driven one, you know just how loudly those engines can rev, and just how much weight they can pull. And if you’ve never driven one, well, it’s never too late to start.
When Penn Yan, Geneva, Watkins Glen, and Hammondsport drivers want the most off-road capability and speed, they should turn to the 2017 Ram 2500. At Friendly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram, we swear by it.
Time to Head off the Beaten Path?
When you’re behind the wheel, you should always play it safe. But the fact is, some cars just have a higher threshold for adventure. The 2017 Ram 2500 is one of them.
You won’t have to worry about driving through some rough, rocky terrain in this truck. Thanks to stabilizing features like the heavy-duty suspension and shock absorbers, it can take a whole lot of punishment. And with its all-wheel drive, traction and control aren’t hard to find.
When you head off road, you may need to take some weighty gear with you. And, fortunately, when the Ram 2500 is equipped with features like the Class V Receiver Hitch and 7-pin wiring harness, you can easily tow up to 17,610 pounds.
Flex Those Muscles: 2017 Ram 2500 Performance Specs
To carry all that weight, it takes a capable engine. The Ram 2500 is equipped with an available 5.7L heavy-duty V8 HEMI® that can generate 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Fortunately, it also comes equipped with plenty of optimizing features that keep it from burning out on you. Heavy-duty engine cooling and a transmission oil cooler both work together to keep the Ram 2500 running on high for long stretches of time.
The truck also comes with a 6-speed automatic transmission and electronically controlled throttle. Both help to heighten efficiency and vehicle responsiveness.
Functional Interior Comforts
Power and handling are a huge part of the Ram 2500 appeal, but that’s not all it has to offer. The truck is still exceptionally comfortable, making it an excellent choice for long road trips.
With the available cloth interior and functional 40/20/40 splitting bench seat, feel free to configure the interior in any way that fits your needs. You’ll also have behind-the-seat storage to add to the generous amount of cargo space found in the 76.3-inch-long bed.
A number of entertainment features are then added to keep you occupied, the focal point of which is the available Uconnect® 5.0. With six robust speakers and a 5-inch touchscreen, you can easily access and control your phone or MP3 player. Feel free to crank the tunes!
It’s Time to Sate Your Thirst for Adventure
The beaten path is comfortable. It’s safe. But, sometimes, you just need to hit the road less traveled. And the 2017 Ram 2500 is the perfect vehicle to do so in.
