It is hard to separate 2019 RAM 2500 from its twin-brother RAM 1500 since those two models look similar and share many things in design and equipment. However, both are developed in two versions, as light and heavy-duty models, and all four versions have undergone few changes in past couple of years. However, last and this year those grew in the second generation of the model, so now we can confirm that those versions occupy a significant part of the heavy-duty vehicle’s market.
Unfortunately, we were not able to actually see how 2019 RAM 2500 will look like, because the manufacturer still sends this model on test driving, covered with thick protection. On the other hand, there are many similarities between the current model that are visible through the protection. It is obvious that the model is made on a new platform and we expected that since the manufacturer changed the platform last year, but there are few interesting changes besides that. The front end has massive front end with gridded chromatic grille and large lights, while the rear end has wide and high truck door and surely modernized rear lights.
There is obviously no clear information about the inside of 2019 RAM 2500, but we expect similarities with changes in RAM 1500 that manufacturer produced for the next year and those include many things that heavy-duty model should have. Some of them are adjusted to hard duty, while some of them are made for a minimum of comfort and functionality.
There are many rumors and unconfirmed information about the engine in 2019 RAM 2500. Since the manufacturer announced that currently 5.7-liter with 385 horsepower of strength and 400 pound-feet of torque will be dropped, we expect a proper replacement. On the other hand, 6.4-liter V8 with 410 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque should remain in the new model, too. The most attractive in the new version will surely be the famous 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine with amazing 930 pound-feet of torque and even 30,000 pounds that it can tow.
2019 RAM 2500 Release Date and Price
Even though the releasing date is not clearly known yet, we can expect that 2019 RAM 2500 will be on the market by the end of the year or nearly 2019. The price usually goes around $30,000 but that is hard to confirm at this stage, especially when nobody knows how it will really look like. Among competitors are large trucks like 2020 Toyota Tacoma or Chevrolet Silverado.
