    Heavy-duty but agile on the road; tough but comfortable inside: these are the qualities that every good pickup truck should have. However, if you need more towing and payload power than the average half-ton pickup, consider upgrading to the best-all-around truck of the year: the 2021 Ram 2500. This truck is making waves for its outstanding power at an affordable price, as well as the plentiful comfort and tech features that add luxury to any job.

    This truck is the first in Ram's lineup of heavy-duty trucks, closely followed by the 3500 and Chassis Cab. While it may be the first in this particular heavy-duty lineup, it certainly blends the perfect balance of value, performance, and technology. Anyone who test drives a Ram 2500, will find that this truck is the perfect model to get the job done in style.

    Driving the 2021 Ram 2500

    A work truck doesn’t have to be ungainly and difficult to steer. Rather, Ram has designed the latest 2500 to perform better than its size would suggest––not just better than a smaller pickup, but as well as a performance car designed to rule the road. In fact, no other heavy-duty truck on the road performs better.


    It starts with the 2500 standard engine, a 6.4-liter V8 that produces an amazing 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. A smooth 8-speed automatic transmission rounds out the powertrain, and a four-wheel drive option is available. This engine option offers superior ride quality, especially if you add on the limited-slip differential and load-leveling air suspension, which improve its already impressive cornering and tight handling. Test drive this Ram and you’ll be surprised you’re driving a truck at all, much less one of the most tow-capable ones around.

    For superior power, consider upgrading to the Cummins turbo diesel inline-6 engine, which produces 370 horsepower and an astounding 850 lb-ft of torque. While the gas engine provides the best everyday driving in the heavy-duty class, this diesel option maximizes power for the toughest, most grueling jobs you could throw at it. Best of all, this diesel engine operates at low noise and vibration, offering a smooth ride at all times.

    Want Better Performance?

    What if you need a truck that’s also capable of handling uneven terrain like ranch roads or demolition sites? Choose the Power Wagon trim for Bilstein gas-charged monotube shocks that stabilize your drive and prevent cargo damage, as well as front and rear locking differentials and a WARN ZEON-12 winch. It also includes an innovative front sway bar that electronically senses uneven terrain and manipulates the axle itself to match. With optional off-road tires and the diesel engine’s superb torque, you can put your Ram 2500 to work anywhere––or just take your truck off the beaten path for recreational driving. In other words, this truck isn’t only for work; it’s for play too.

  • Towing

    Towing power may not be what converts you to the Ram heavy-duty truck world, but it’s what you’ll stick around for. The latest Ram 2500 is the toughest one yet, and when properly equipped, can tow up to a whopping 19,680 pounds and handle a max payload of 4,010 pounds. That means you can tow a work trailer full of goods, pull a recreational vehicle like a small boat or camper trailer, and even load up the bed with tons of supplies. With numbers like these, the 2021 Ram 2500 is a perfect moving vehicle, working vehicle, and travel companion.

    Towing Centric Features

    Features that improve towing include auto-level rear air suspension that includes a bed lowering mode. Adjust your truck bed height to match any trailer for easier hook-up, smoother travel, and simple unhooking when you reach your destination. Meanwhile, features like the rear-axle structural crossmember offer plenty of mounting hardware for all kinds of applications. Add the Fifth Wheel/Gooseneck prep package to your Ram 2500 to accommodate heavy trailers with ease. Winches, anchors, and other hardware are versatile enough to secure all kinds of cargo and suit any job.

    You can tow or haul with total peace of mind, especially because there’s almost nothing you could throw at it that it couldn’t haul. The Ram 2500 can handle plenty of commercial jobs, as well as recreational jobs like taking your family out on a camping trip or hauling supplies for your ranch. The best way to know how much towing potential you need––including how to outfit a 2021 Ram 2500––is to visit your local Ram truck dealer, Orange Coast CJDR.

  • Interior

    The 2021 Ram 2500 may be the best truck for your money, but surprisingly, it’s also the most luxurious. In terms of interior quality and built-in tech––even in the base model––the Ram truck lineup is unsurpassed.


    When it comes down to choosing your Ram 2500, start with the available cab configurations: the compact Single Cab, four-door Crew Cab, and spacious Mega Cab that offers the most comfortable passenger seating of any new pickup. Each edition has ample storage, with cubbies aplenty and a space-saving center console, but only one is right for you.

    The cabin is quiet thanks to innovative acoustic glass and the sound system’s noise-canceling technology––features available in every edition of the 2021 Ram 2500. Even if your truck is hard at work, your cabin still feels quiet and peaceful. Even better, you can upgrade to the 900-watt Harman Kardon Premium Audio System with 17 speakers to enjoy concert-level acoustics from the comfort and privacy of your Ram.

    Packed With Luxury and Style

    The interior design of the base model is clean and modern, with detailed lines and bright accents that outshine even the luxury upgrades from competing brands. The Limited trim features 100% leather seats. Upgrade to the Longhorn trim to give your 2021 Ram 2500 a classic elegance with features like gold trim, specially designed gauges, striped wood panels, and a special logo branded on the sleek upper glovebox.

    Innovative Technology

    Move aside, Silverado. The latest Ram 2500 is now the technical giant every driver needs to navigate safely and tow with peace of mind. Every 2021 Ram 2500 comes with a UConnect touchscreen infotainment system that is your gateway to truck features, audio, navigation, and Internet––all depending on how you choose to customize the system. Connect your smartphone to access your choice audio, contacts, select mobile apps, and more; switch on a go-anywhere Wi-Fi hotspot; or add SiriusXM Travel Link to stay on top of real-time gas prices, weather, and other helpful info.

    The digital rear-view mirror upgrade isn’t just a glass mirror but an LCD screen that can stream views from a rear-facing camera, offering panoramic views of what’s behind your truck and trailer. Other camera views, meanwhile, stream directly to your infotainment systems, such as the 360 Surround View Camera, Trailer Reverse Guidance View, and other camera views that help you maneuver your truck and trailer safely. The new Ram 2500 isn’t just a tough tower; it’s also designed to protect your cargo and trailers while you drive.

    Your Safety Is Ram's Priority

    Other innovative safety features include available forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking (effective even when a trailer is attached), adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and so much more. Meanwhile, adaptive forward lighting is a class-exclusive feature that turns off your headlamps automatically when it detects oncoming traffic.

    Ram has designed a suite of safety features for the 2021 Ram 2500 that give you peace of mind while you travel, commute, or transport goods on unpredictable roads.
