2016 RAM 2500 Buyer's Guide

The 2016 RAM 2500 is a heavy-duty pickup truck that is available in a wide variety of configurations. This is a really competitive market with a lot of options to choose from, from both domestic and import automakers. The 2015 model year version of the RAM 2500 is considered one of the best in the segment, and RAM hopes to maintain that reputation with the 2016 model. Although RAM is showing promise with its growing lineup of cargo vans, its pickup trucks are the core part of the model family. The 2016 RAM 2500 slots just above the entry-level 1500, promising more horsepower and torque. The RAM 2500 was last redesigned for the 2009 model year, and the 2016 version features a mild refresh.
