2011 RAM 2500 Truck
Benefits of Driving a 2011 RAM 2500 Truck
The Ram 2500 and 3500 are heavy-duty trucks that sacrifice some ride quality and maneuverability, compared to lighter-duty pickups, in favor of improved towing and hauling ability.
What's new for 2011?
New to the Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 Heavy Duty lineup for 2011 is a Ram Laramie Longhorn Edition, which the brand calls the most luxurious Ram Truck ever. Also, the Ram Outdoorsman is a new model that brings off-road capability plus trailer-towing hardware together.
- Tough, work-oriented construction
- full set of luxury and entertainment options
- serious towing and hauling ability
- stump-pulling Cummins turbodiesel
The Heavy Duty Ram models are offered in three different cab styles--Regular Cab, Crew Cab and Mega Cab--as well as 6'-4' or 8' cargo box lengths. Crew Cab models are designed for occasional backseat use, while Mega Cab models have adult-size backseat accommodations--much like a full-size SUV. The 3500 can include a DRW (dual rear wheel) setup for heavy-duty towing and both versions may be either equipped with a 383-hp, 5.7-liter V8 or a 350-hp, 6.7-liter Cummins in-line six. The gasoline engine comes with a standard 5-speed manual, while the diesel offers a 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed automatic.
