2017 Ram 2500/3500 HD

The king of diesels in the Ram heavy-duty pickup lineup is a 385-horsepower 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel that cranks out 900 pound-feet of torque. That’s a big step up from the diesel in the light-duty Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. Properly equipped, the Ram 3500 can tow up to 31,210 pounds.

Ram offers their 2500 and 3500 series heavy-duty trucks with three cab configurations including regular, crew, and ultra-roomy mega cabs. Trim levels range from simple Tradesman models designed for commercial use to plush Limited trims.

Pricing for a diesel Ram 2500 pickup starts at $41,345. Load the options onto a Ram 3500 Limited with the Cummins diesel, and the price can easily eclipse $70,000.
