For decades, the Ram was Dodge's iconic full-size pickup. Starting in 2011, however, parent company Chrysler decided to make the Ram name an actual brand. So, yes, this truck's name is now just Ram, with 2500 added on to specify its status as a heavy-duty truck in the lineup. The Ram 2500 slots in between the standard full-size 1500 and the more robust 3500 heavy-duty model.
Used Ram 2500 Models
The new Ram 2500 name came into being for 2011. In reality, though, it's just the next model year of what was formerly the fourth-generation Dodge Ram 2500. Revisions since the name change are slight, with a six-speed automatic replacing the five-speed transmission for the 5.7-liter gasoline engine in 2012. Navigation was also included as a standard feature for Laramie and Longhorn trims.
The current, fourth-generation (Dodge) Ram 2500 debuted for 2010 with revised styling, a more upscale interior, a retuned suspension and the new Crew Cab, which replaced the previous generation's Quad Cab body style. For more information on the Dodge version and its previous generations, please read our review of the Dodge Ram 2500.
