2015 RAM 2500 Towing Capacity is part of the RAM Heavy Duty Series that has been around since 1981, back then under the Dodge RAM name. Back then this series was one of the most competitive heavy duty options on the market, and today RAM trucks are still one of the best and the most powerful trucks you can find. Since the new Ford and Silverado trucks came with new engines for the 2015 model year, RAM also decided to go for this large update and introduce more powerful and fuel efficient engine. RAM’s heavy duty series contains two trucks, 2500 and 3500 with each one coming with three different cab styles.
2015 RAM 2500 Exterior and Interior
When it comes to styling RAM has always been ahead of Ford pickup truck models, and that’s why this truck’s designers decided to snatch the RAM 1500 grille and attach it directly to the 2500 and 3500 model. This great looking grille piece comes with plenty of air flow and chrome and it is definitely one of the best grille pieces on the market. Front fascia is quite different than the one seen in smaller RAM models since this truck comes with much bigger and heavier bumper and the same goes for fog lights that are more landscape oriented. Bumper is made out of chrome and it looks very stylish and elegant, but it is also awfully strong and it contains recovery points for pulling out smaller trucks from mud traps. New model also comes with more bulged rear fenders and big rig style wheels with chrome on top.
Depending on the buyers preferences RAM 2500 2015 interior can go from nineties Spartan to the premium luxury look. Tradesman trim level is the lowest one in RAM eating chain and it comes with vinyl upholstery and carpentry. On the other hand Laramie Longhorn which is RAM’s luxury brand, similar to the Ford’s King’s Ranch provides this truck with soft leather upholstery, Uconnect infotainment system and power adjustable seats and pedals. Laramie Longhorn trim also comes with heated and ventilated front seats and 8,4 inch infotainment display. When it comes to off-road and towing features, even the base version comes with plenty of that including ABS systems, rear view camera and integrated trailer brake controller ties. Interior styling looks a lot a like the one we can find in the RAM 1500 model.
