RAM 2500 Owner's Manuals
RAM 2500 is a car that belongs to the class of full-size pickups. It is manufactured by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. In recent years, he has been at the forefront of the pickup market.
The RAM 2500 comes standard with a 6.4 liter engine capable of generating 410 horsepower. It is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Comes with all-wheel drive. There is also a 6.7-liter engine with six cylinders (turbo diesel). These characteristics are primarily designed for towing and carrying bulky and heavy loads.
So RAM 2500 can load a maximum load of 1424 kilograms. And its traction ability can tow a trailer weighing 7650. But this is with gasoline engines. If there is a diesel engine, then these figures are reduced to 900 kg and 6.8 tons, respectively. Still, these figures are much higher than the similar Power Wagon model, which has a load capacity of 739 kg. and towing is only 4.8 tons. To the best extent, the car shows off-road driving – properly tuned chassis contribute to this.
Serious obstacles are overcome without difficulty and unnecessary “drama”. And what’s unusual is that it’s the petrol engine that excels off-road, it’s the diesel that’s supposed to do better, thanks to the low-end torque. Also, braking is best manifested on a gasoline engine.
The only plus of a diesel engine can be called economical fuel consumption while driving, off-road. Since gasoline, even in the combined cycle, consumes 19.5 liters per 100 kilometers. But the price of a diesel plant is very high and amounts to 9,595 thousand dollars. And this despite the fact that the base car is already worth 68,940 thousand dollars.
Dynamic characteristics are also not bad for this car. Despite the fact that its mass is 3.4 tons, it accelerates to 100 km/hour in 7.5 seconds. Already in the basic version, the buyer is offered air conditioning, an on-board computer, power steering, an acoustic system with 6 speakers and much more.
