After a close-up look at full-size pickups here at Landmark Dodge of Morrow, opting for a light-duty option can sometimes be a bit less pricey than the heavy-duty model. There’s a long list of components you’ll need to reach the 15,000-pound towing capacity needed to rally as king of the jobsite, and when it comes to the Ram 1500 vs the 2500, there’s a decision to make as you are seeking what works best for you.
Extras that the 2023 Ram 1500 needs to reach the 15,000-lb towing benchmark may leave you considering the Ram 2500 as an alternative. The entry-level “Tradesman” trim provides a sweet 2WD two-door truck with rubber floor mats, steel rims, and vinyl seats. The very powerful V8 and trailer hitch are included with the 2500, but cost extra to add to the 1500’s version of the Tradesman. If you are seeking to up the towing capacity to a massive 20,000 pounds, you can opt for the sensational 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel.
The V8 and 4WD are a few add-ons that increase the price of the 1500, as the base engine here is the 3.6-liter, naturally aspirated Pentastar V6. It’s an incredibly trusty and awesome engine with tons of ample grunt and is the base-engine that takes the center stage in many Jeeps and other Dodges. Many situations may leave you desiring the hefty upgrade to the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 and receiver hitch to the 1500, which will affect your pocketbook. Rolling off the lot triumphantly with the Ram 2500 will provide you with the Trailer hitch, and added boost of the 6.4-HEMI V8.
Massive love and appreciation for the Ram 2500 Rebel have been noticed on auto authority websites such as Carpro.com, which claimed that it was a “perfectly serious off-roader, and fit for the toughest of jobs.” Also sporting Bilstein shocks, 33-inch tires, 20-inch wheels, and a cowled hood with air vents, the Rebel is immediately letting it be known that it means business no matter what terrain type is at hand. There are also gigantic tow hooks in the front and the rear, LED lighting along with fog lights, and a grille built especially for the Rebel.
Inside you can comfortably fit five adults, and everything is composed of soft-touch materials. You’re going to love every single demanding or recreational drive taken with a ride that is so quiet and comfortable, especially for one this size! A few other features that are incredibly useful are the brand-new trailer tow camera views, along with power-telescoping trailering mirrors. For jumping off-road to enjoy the many challenges of the trail, the Power Wagon boasts capabilities that many other heavy-duty trucks in the segment don’t offer.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration operates seamlessly, and there are all the USB ports you could need for keeping all of your devices fully operational and charged. The available rear air suspension’s exclusive kneeling function makes the task of loading and trailer hookups a breeze, and this truck’s “consistently big personality” is guaranteed to win you over. You won’t have ANY doubts that the Ram 2500 is the undisputed king of the campground or jobsite, and will be enjoying our world-class warranty coverage while you’re at it!
