Towing with the 2017 Ram 2500
Do you have some big hauls ahead of you? Well, that’s exactly what the 2017 Ram 2500 was built for. To understand this, you only need to look at its framework.
The 2017 Ram 2500 comes with a heavy-duty suspension and a full set of rugged shock absorbers. Pair these with the stabilizer bar to adequately safeguard your truck against off-road debris.
Next, the Ram 2500 is outfitted with a number of different towing accessories, starting with a class V receiver hitch and 7-pin wiring harness. You can then add in available features like the trailer brake controller and powered tow mirrors.
With all these different features on its side, the 2017 Ram 2500 can haul up to 17,610 pounds of cargo.
Ram 2500 Performance Specs
The powertrain plays a big part in this truck’s ability to haul so much weight. Standard in the Ram 2500 is a 5.7L V8 HEMI® with Variable Valve Timing. This outfit allows the Ram 2500 to produce as much as 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Smooth power flow is important in a well-muscled truck such as this. That’s why the Ram 2500 has also been equipped with an electronically controlled throttle and 6-speed automatic transmission. This pairing ensures that shifting and accelerating is as smooth as possible.
Lastly, the Ram 2500 also comes with an available next-generation engine controller and heavy-duty engine cooler. These features help to moderate engine performance so that all that power doesn’t wear down your powertrain.
2017 Ram 2500 Interior Comfort
The interior of the 2017 Ram 2500 was made to blend functionality and comfort in one stylish package. Just take seating, for example. In the regular cab, you’ll have a 40/20/40 split bench seat. This easy-folding seat includes a behind-the-seat storage bin for stowing extra gear.
In your instrument cluster, you’ll then have an Electronic Vehicle Information Center. This feature allows you to keep track of your truck’s performance over time.
Then, in your media suite, you’ll have a 5-inch entertainment touchscreen with the available Uconnect® system. This is where you can connect your mobile devices to access music and apps. They’ll sound great when played over the 6-speaker audio system.
