To make all of this possible, there are two engines from which you can choose. The one that comes standard is a 6.4-liter Heavy-Duty V8 HEMI®. It has the ability to produce up to 415 horsepower. The Ram 2500 is available with a 6.7-liter I6 Cummins® Turbo Diesel Engine. Its maximum output is 370 horsepower.
Towing Features for Enhanced Support
There is a wide variety of features designed to help you out when you’re using the Ram 2500 for towing. For starters, there’s the Class V Receiver Hitch that comes standard, along with the available Tow Hooks. For extra visibility, there are the available Manual Folding Trailer-Tow Mirrors as well as the available Power Black Trailer-Tow Mirrors with Power Fold-Away for even more convenience.
The Ram 2500 is also available with the Trailer Brake Control feature that makes it possible for you to bring the trailer you’re towing to a complete stop in the event that emergency braking is necessary.
Ram 2500 Towing Safety Features
Along with all of the above performance features and capabilities, the Ram 2500 provides you with several safety features. The available Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking is one that’s certainly worth mentioning. Not only does it alert you to the possibility of a collision, but it even has the ability to apply pressure to the brakes—to the point of bringing the truck to a complete stop.
Other useful Ram 2500 safety features include the available Adaptive Forward Lighting System that takes the power from the already impressive LED headlights up to 15 degrees for increased visibility at night, along with the available Blind Spot Monitoring system that lets you know when a vehicle is in one of your blind spots, and can help you out when you’re attempting to change lanes.
