Laramie 2500 Capability
MAX BRAKED TOWING
Combine world-class capability with outstanding performance and you’ve got the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. Virtually indestructible in design, the Cummins Turbo Diesel is engineered to the tolerances, quality and durability to power semi class big rigs. Rated at 276kW and 1084Nm, the incredible torque delivers uncompromising strength for towing and hauling. The engine features a next generation Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) System and an ultra-efficient Diesel Cooling System with an 11 blade fan and a smart diesel exhaust brake.
Whether you carry your weight in a trailer or in your tub, the 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine delivers.
Six Speed Automatic Transmission
The Cummins Turbo Diesel engine is packaged with the 68RFE six-speed automatic transmission, which includes driver-adaptive shifting and three multiple clutch packs, dual filters on a dual stage pump and an independent lubrication cooler that delivers ample pressures under all loads and driving conditions.
Sometimes, the best things come from sitting and listening. For years, Ram engineers learned from some of the toughest workers around: customers. It’s paid off in increased performance, thanks to the Active Air®system, designed specifically for those who take trucks to the limit day in and day out.
In extreme heat or high altitudes, the Ram Active Air® system reads outside conditions and automatically switches to intake cooler air from the grille.
Ram Active Air® technology helps ensure optimal engine air intake regardless of climatic elements. We made sure that optimal power and torque are virtually certain in all tow, haul, push, pull scenarios—and even in the most extreme temperatures known to man.
Tough 4 x 4
The transfer case in the Ram is exactly what you need for ultra 4x4 capability. The BorgWarner BW 44-46 transfer case features responsive electronic shift on the fly engineering with three operating ranges plus neutral. This impressive unit offers a long range reduction ratio of 2.64:1 – an ideal ratio when off road in a slow rock climbing situation or when using your Ram 4x4 on challenging terrain or steep grades. You need capability and performance that exceeds the need and Ram Heavy Duty trucks are designed to excel.
The Ram 2500 is defined by capability, with standards that allow zero tolerance for compromise or for convention. In front, a unique three-link coil spring suspension. At the back, a class exclusive five link coil spring suspension featuring unique multi-rate coil springs and heavy duty fixed displacement twin tube shock absorbers, both of which are placed in an outboard position that optimizes performance and minimises noise and vibration. Innovative Ram technology delivers it all: phenomenal ride quality, impeccable road manners and unrivalled control. Let the others try to catch up.
The Frame – Uncompromising Support
Whether used for business or pleasure a Ram Heavy Duty gives you the means to master the toughest tasks. The Ram 2500 uses ksi steel with eight tough cross members all contributing to robust towing and hauling. The front and rear sections are produced through hydroforming, a process that ensures durable strength and mass efficiencies. Rail contours are ideally placed for the suspension components and ancillary mounts. The frame strength gives you no-nonsense towing with structural integrity to ensure occupant comfort when hauling big payloads.
The proven ladder frame also features a large front suspension cross member with roll formed centre rail sections in a smart outwardly curved position to improve rear spring and shock placement.
# Payload and kerb weight figures are based on vehicle certification. It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure: weight of fully loaded vehicles do not exceed GVM; front and rear axle load limits are not individually exceeded; the combined weight of the fully loaded vehicle (including tow ball download when towing) and trailer does not exceed the GCM; compliance to State and Territory towing regulations. Payload is the combined value of occupants, luggage, cargo, added options, accessories and tow ball download (when towing). Kerb weight includes the vehicle with a full tank of fuel and all standard equipment, excluding occupants. Additional weights of optional features, occupants, luggage, cargo, accessories and tow ball download (when towing) must be taken into account when calculating payload.
