Competes with: Chevrolet Silverado 2500, Ford Super Duty F-250, GMC Sierra 2500, Nissan Titan XD

Looks like: A beefier Ram 1500 with a bigger schnoz

Drivetrains: 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 (410 horsepower, 429 pounds-feet of torque) or turbo-diesel 6.7-liter inline-six-cylinder Cummins (370 hp, 850 pounds-feet of torque); eight-speed TorqFlite (gas) or six-speed (diesel) automatic transmissions; rear- or four-wheel drive

Hits dealerships: Early second quarter

When Ram introduced the impressive new 2019 1500 full-size pickup truck at the 2018 Detroit auto show, it was chock full of bits that made it more luxurious, more comfortable, quieter and more powerful. Following that debut, parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles turned its attention to the heavy-duty side of the Ram lineup, unveiling the 2019 Ram 2500 and 3500 at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit today.

The new 2500 and related Power Wagon feature a lot of the improvements that were made to the 1500 half ton, but Ram upped the ante once again with more power, better payload and towing ratings, and some new technology that will be exclusive to the Ram brand for a while. Here, we'll focus on the three-quarter-ton HDs; if you want to know more about the Ram 3500 HDs, click here.

Exterior

From the outside, there's less difference between the Ram 1500 and 2500 than you'll see from Ford and Chevrolet competitors. While the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 looks totally different from the 2019 Silverado 1500, sharing only its sheet metal roof, the Ram 2500 now looks similar to the 1500. The biggest obvious difference is the massive grille, which is 30 percent larger than the outgoing model for improved cooling (and let's be honest, more bling). Three new headlight designs are available: a basic halogen lamp, a full LED-reflector style and an LED projector lamp with active turning that allows for 15 degrees of travel as the driver turns the steering wheel.

The 2500 sits higher than the 1500 and has more unusual metal content than the outgoing model, including an aluminum hood and a lot more high-strength steel in the frame, all of which contribute to an overall 143-pound weight reduction on the highest-volume model. The new body has a class-leading 0.409 coefficient of drag, which Ram says makes for the quietest HD cabin it's ever crafted, aided by new anti-vibration devices, new engine mounts, active noise cancellation technology inside the truck and added insulation.

Three different body styles will be offered for the new 2500: regular, crew and Ram's exclusive Mega Cab. Bed technology didn't get much of a boost, however, with the RamBox lockable bedside storage bins making a return along with the RamBox Cargo Management System with its weatherproof, lockable, illuminated and drainable storage bins built into the bedrails. A 115-volt, 400-watt power outlet included in the RamBox is new for 2019.

Under the Hood

Bigger changes are present under the skin for the Ram 2500, starting with the powertrains. The new standard engine is a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 making 410 horsepower and 429 pounds-feet of torque mated to a new eight-speed TorqFlite 8HP75 automatic transmission. One optional engine is available for the 2500 HD — a totally reengineered turbo-diesel 6.7-liter inline-six-cylinder Cummins making 370 hp and 850 pounds-feet of torque. The Cummins engine is mated to a beefed-up 68RFE six-speed automatic transmission. The V-8 gas engine gets a rotary shifter on the dash, while the diesel retains a column-mounted stalk shifter.

Rear-wheel drive is standard, but four-wheel drive is an option across the board, using either a BorgWarner BW 44-46 electronic or BW 44-47 manual shift transfer case, depending on the model. Maximum towing capacity for the 2500 is 19,780 pounds when properly equipped (that would be a regular-cab, short-box diesel 4x2), while the 2500's max payload is listed at 4,520 pounds if you get a regular-cab gasoline 4x2 with the bed-delete option. Ram says that the extra capability won't be an issue when it comes to stopping, thanks to a new brake system that has larger calipers, a brake booster and a master cylinder that the company says should result in shorter, more confident braking performance.

Ram has re-engineered the suspension as well, aiming to keep all the capability of an HD truck but adding in some of the everyday usability that the new 1500 has brought to the truck world. New frequency response damping shock absorbers front and rear automatically adjust to the terrain the truck is traversing. Progressive springs and upgraded bushings help keep the ride civil, while an exclusive five-link coil design is installed on the 2500's rear end. A rear air suspension is optional on the 2500, replacing the rear coil springs with airbags, and now features a new Bed Lowering mode to make hooking up a trailer or loading things into the bed easier.

The frame of the 2500 has been upgraded as well, with a new two-piece front suspension cross-member structure adding a longer welded interface for greater strength to the frame. The 2500's all-new frame is now made almost entirely of high-strength steel and includes six separate cross-members, hydroformed main rails and fully boxed rear rails. Ram has included two active-tuned mass modules mounted on the frame rails that work to actively counter unwanted vibrations. The rear-axle cross-member has upgraded provisions for fifth-wheel and gooseneck hitches, commensurate with the higher towing capacity.

Interior

Just like the 1500, the 2019 Ram 2500 receives a major upgrade to its cabin in terms of materials, assembly quality and storage capacity. It may look similar to the previous design, but the interior is completely new and features six different trim levels from workhorse to luxury. A new rotary electronic shifter is present on V-8 models, with ancillary function buttons grouped around the knob such as hill descent control, axle lock and 4x4 transfer case controls (if equipped). All 2019 HD trucks get push-button start.

RM019_081HD copy II

On higher-end models, the same level of display screen wizardry that has blown away so many journalists in the 2019 Ram 1500 makes its appearance in the 2500. Several multimedia touchscreens are available: a 3-inch, 5-inch and two types of the familiar 8.4-inch screen. New for 2019 is the optional 12-inch, vertically oriented touchscreen that debuted on the 1500 pickup, allowing the screen to be divided in half and run two different applications simultaneously. The 8.4- and 12-inch screens come with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The driver's gauge cluster can be had with a 7-inch, full-color, 3D-animation-capable display that allows for reconfigurable delivery of all manner of truck system data. Five USB ports are available in the cabin, and up to three 115-volt, 400-watt outlets as well. The latest version of the FCA Uconnect multimedia system keeps everyone tuned in and online, while an optional 17-speaker Harman Kardon 750-watt premium audio system with an 8-inch subwoofer is available, as is a 360-degree surround view camera system.

Even the climate control system has been upgraded, now delivering 30 percent more airflow with lower noise levels and larger front defroster vents for better performance. Ram says this will be the quietest HD truck it's ever made — nearly 10 decibels quieter than before thanks to active noise cancellation systems and the use of acoustic glass.

The big news on the interior is the upgrade to both the Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims. The interior is a stunner with real leather-wrapped panels throughout the cabin, real wood and real metal trim. The Laramie Longhorn is the western-themed model, while the Limited easily rivals some of the best luxury vehicles in the world in terms of interior appointments.

Safety

The Ram HD lineup will offer many of the safety systems the Ram 1500 offers, including adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. The AEB system works in conjunction with the trailer brake controller to activate the trailer brakes.

RM019_084HD copy II

Many of the Ram 2500's new safety features are centered around towing and hauling. A cargo/payload camera helps monitor the load in the bed and features active gridlines for hooking up fifth-wheel and gooseneck trailers. Backing up a trailer is easier, too, with the rearview camera including a display screen view of both sides of the trailer. The tire pressure monitoring system can monitor six pickup tires and 12 trailer tires as part of four different storable trailer profiles in the multimedia towing menu. A custom tire fill alert can be set for the tires to notify a driver when they fall below or reach a certain pressure. New mirror-mounted rear-facing spotlights are offered that help illuminate surroundings when backing up a trailer. If you want even more visibility, a new optional auxiliary remote exterior camera can be placed just about anywhere you want, such as on or behind a trailer to see what might be following you.

2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon: Head for the Hills

The updates to the 2019 Ram 2500 include an all-new Power Wagon, the off-road monster that Ram offers to people interested in climbing mountains without leaving air-conditioned, leather-lined comfort. The 2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon gets all the updates that the regular 2500 receives, but like the last version, it also gets some specific off-road-oriented equipment that makes it able to go nearly anywhere wide enough to accommodate its considerable mass.

A unique Articu-link front suspension is fitted to the Power Wagon that includes a factory suspension lift, Bilstein off-road shock absorbers at all four corners and an electronically disconnecting front sway bar. The only powertrain is the gas 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 with the eight-speed automatic transmission as the diesel engine's cooling requirements prevent it from working with the standard 12,000-pound Warn Zeon-12 winch that's integrated into the front bumper. That new winch also has some updates, such as a unique fairlead and retainer with an unkinkable synthetic line that's 28 pounds lighter. The new eight-speed transmission help provide and even lower crawl-ratio when in low range as well.

01-ram-3500-longhorn-2019-angle--exterior--front--red

The Power Wagon also boasts several visual changes, such as a unique interior trim with embossed seat patterns, unique graphics and exterior trim, and exclusive wheels with off-road tires. An off-road camera is fitted to the front grille, allowing you to see over hills and sharp drop-offs, and even includes dynamic guidelines that correspond to your wheel angle. If you want all the off-road equipment without the extra expense of the trim goodies, you can get the Power Wagon's bits in a contented package called the 2500 Tradesman work-truck trim.

Look for the new 2019 Ram 2500 to arrive in dealerships early in the second quarter accompanied by the new 3500. For a peek at the changes to the 2019 Ram 3500, click here.

It looks the same to me just pure junk like the 2020 Chebby 2500 HD. Ford is the king of trucks like it or not.

Oh another thing the top pic of the dodge Crome grill it looks a lot like the one of the 15 Ford F-150 Crome grill and the bottom lines of the tailgate too just like the 2015 Ford F-150. Copy cats.

What's the point of writing what it "looks like"? Looks are subjective and different people see different resembles from same objective and it's just nothing more then a personal opinion. Please report facts and let everyone to be their own judge.

But the Cummins 6.7 l I6 with a new CGI-block in the RAM 3500 has a capacity of 1000 lb/ft of torque. Making it the class leader.
Can tow 35100 lbs

#3 Fiat continues to embarrass #2 Chevy.

While the HD's grill (just too tall) isn't quite as handsome as the 1/2 ton's the head lamps turn signals are again nicely integrated. The lines of the Power Wagon's grill do a much nicer job of breaking up its over tall look. The interior is a HOME run. No doubt about it. The new chevy has been plagued by bad press, mediocre reviews, and faring poorly in comparison testing to even its oldest competition and has an ad campaign that is honestly very boring. Chevy is making this very easy for Fiat. The Fiat has a very real shot at taking the number 2 spot and such a shift would be huge news.

The GM goons will lie and try to spin this... but the bottom line is The new Fiat is much better than the new Chevy.

The new age RAM was just awesome and it would be even more beautiful if they come with a concept to provide a small LCD TV that is loaded with cool suff such as https://newpipeapk.xyz/ and other apps that provide a way to entertainment in an unconditional way.

GM is so greedy, fighting takata recalls, building high profit trucks in Mexico and firing American workers all after we tax payers were stuck with their $11.2 billion loss. This Ram is certainly the nicest looking truck to date. Chingon is a moron, the TNT/papa/GMS of the Ford camp, but I too thought 2015 F-150 when I saw the pics with the horizontal bars on the grille. The BIG difference is that the Ram looks good doing it where as the Ford looked too in your face, out of proportion square and hideous.

This is a nice truck so much nicer than Ford and Chevy. I don't have a dog in this fight but I am rooting for Ram. Here's wanting Ram to pass the Silverado in sales. Chevy needs to have a refresh next year with a front end that is less polarizing. I like the round wheel wells and the side bed steps on the Silvey but it is a ugly duckling. I also like the increased cab room in the GM trucks but their interiors are just not up to par and the Silvey has polarizing looks. GMC has a much better style and the front is less polarizing. I would pay the difference to buy a GMC over a Chevy. I still have concerns about Ram's reliability that is their Achilles heel. The Hemi and the Cummins diesel are great. engines. Nice job Ram.

The FAKE Jeff. The real Jeff is completely unable to finish a paragraph without resorting to elaborate equivocations.

This Jeff stacks unequivocal assertion atop unequivocal assertion (which for those of you who attended public school means that the fake Jeff talks the straight poop and the real Jeff struggles to do so).

Beware the FAKE Jeff. Bring back the REAL Jeff.

@papajim--Not fake Jeff. I have owned Chevrolets for the most part for over 40 years. I really liked my Chevelle, my Monte Carlo, and my 99 S-10. Mechanically I have been very pleased with them and even my 2008 Isuzu although not badged as a GM it was made by GM. There are very few Chevy trucks that I haven't liked but I find the looks of this 2019 Silverado polarizing. If it takes sales of the new Silvey to slip to get them to redesign the front of the Silverado then that is good. Don't need to redesign the truck but clean up the . I have seen just 1 Silverado 1500 in the wild and it is even uglier than the pictures. The High Country is not much better but it is better than the regular HD version. Maybe you think this new Silvey is the best looking one yet but I will take the 2018 one over this any day. I really liked the looks of the 2014 ones especially the ones with the chrome. GM bombed on this truck which is there Number 1 product. Not crazy about the looks of the F-150 or the F series but the looks are better. I usually don't care that much about looks but this is ugly. GM still has the lowest grade interiors of any of the major trucks with maybe the exception of the GMC Denali. The Sierra is so much more premium than the Silverado even if they share the same body and power trains. I have always like GM power trains. Again I have seen just 1 of these new Silveys in the wild and a dozen or so 2019 Rams. Actually I have seen more 2019 Sierras and F-150s than Silveys. Maybe take 12k or 15k off and it would get a few more buyers for that you could get after market fascias and make this tolerable. My preferences are the new Ram and then the new Sierra Denali. Not much into Fords but I wouldn't even give this Chevy a second look. To this would be a reason to buy the 2018 Silvey besides saving some green. Maybe the only vehicle I find more polarizing are the Pontiac Aztech and the 1958 Edsel. Maybe it just me but I have a feeling I am not the only one counting the number that are on the road versus Ram and F-150. You can call me names and tell me I am wrong but I still hate this truck. GM if you are listening please change the front of all your 2019 Silverados and please drop all the BMW wanabees from Cadillac. A few more boring crossovers and more Escalades are a much better bet. Either make Cadillac a brand that is desirable or sell it off. As for Buick please no more rebadged Opels or Daewoos. Either make Buick a desirable brand or sell it off. Please no more coffee and latte bars for Cadillac. If you want to get attention and bring interest back to Cadillac make a rear wheel drive V-8 luxury sedan with your Corvette engine. Even if it does not sell in volume it will get those luxury buyers into the showroom and at least sell more Cadillacs. Papajim I don't care what you say about me and how much you attack me but this is my opinion as to where GM needs to improve. GM needs to make a vehicle that even non GM buyers will take notice and say I have to to have that vehicle.

By the way I think that truck should make any guy go right over to the RAM dealer to trade in his old Chevy more so than his old Super Duty.

Still like the Colorado and Canyon a lot and if I were in the market for a new midsize truck both would be at the top of my list before the Frontier which I consider a real good truck for the money. GM got their midsize trucks right and offering the diesel even though it is not as big a seller was a good move. I like the Impala and LaCrosse even though both are getting the axe they are just good cars. Corvette is a very competitive sports car and more than holds its own against any foreign made sports car. The Camaro is just a mess even to the point that I would take a Mustang over it but I would take a Challenger over both of them (this is a car that FCA just got right no need to mess it up). New Malibu looks good but it is an average car and nothing to get too excited about. Most of the GM vehicles look like they were designed by bean counters and not by those who actually like cars and trucks. Not saying they are bad but that is just the way I see it. Not every vehicle has to have the wow factor but just make a few for each brand that will get people interested in your brand. Also send the real people ads packing.

Jay Leno had a video on his 1957 Chevy Corvette, what a beautiful car one of my all time favorites. This Corvette was not overly styled and did not have too much chrome just a beautiful timeless minimalist design. That is the GM that I miss when there vehicles actually were desirable and I got to have it.

F@ck Ram!! Dang it this truck looks awesome!! I F@cking hate them!! It doesn't have a 6.2 like 5% of GM trucks so there!! That interior is so nice that I f@cking hate it!! Why?? Why papa? You told johnny and I that Chevy would pass Ford before we grew up and now this f@cking sh@t!! Why?? Why?? Whhhhhhhhyyyyyy?

I wish Ram would make the Power Wagon in a half ton. Unless you are hauling/pulling big loads up a logging trail in the mountains, not sure why it needs to be a 3/4ton.
I had a 1/2 ton PowerWagon, it was a regular cab, short bed with a 440cu.in. 4sp. put 35inch Denman Ground Hawgs on it with out a lift.

@Aaron Bragman

Per your statement on styling: "From the outside, there's less difference between the Ram 1500 and 2500 than you'll see from Ford and Chevrolet competitors."

I'm challenging your comment. This truck is actually MORE different than its 1/2 ton sibling, compared to the competition because it's based on the out-going truck design from 2009. The body panels have zero% interchangeability.

The updated grille and tailgate designs were adapted mimic the 1500. Same with the dash and interior pieces.

@Dave, They do make a half ton Version. It's call the rebel, just missing front locker.

another FAKE papa

VERY disappointed in this. For the past year or so, I read several
articles about how the 2500 was getting all this new hardware,
how Ram was testing a new ZF 8 speed powerline auto box, how the new 6.7L was getting a CGI block and how power ratings that would embarrass the competition.

Well, as they say, don't believe everything you read. The
"standard" 6.7l will NOT come with CGI, the "new" power
rating is a poultry 50 lbs of torque jump, hp stays the same and worst of all, the 68RFE has been "beefed" up instead of
flat out replaced. Seems Ram wanted to really separate the
2500 from the 3500 with what is now 1,000 lbs or torque vs.
850 for the 2500. But it's the tranny slight that really has me
p. o'd the most. Why do all that testing for nothing???? What
moron made this decision?


Unless there's a lot of details that weren't released and if whats
being reported is true, then Ram seems to be content at being
#3....and there they will stay.


@richardny66

RAM's halfton truck has just won the Truck of the Year award. The heavy duty RAMs will be very popular with anyone who wants a big Cummins and a comfortable cab.

What's in YOUR wallet?

Straight from the Cummins website

Overview:
For the first time, HD pickup buyers can get an impressive 1000 lb-ft of torque. This high-output (HO) rating is offered exclusively in the RAM 3500 equipped with the Aisin transmission option. The new high-output engine boasts 400 hp and 1000 lb-ft of best-in-class torque.
For RAM 2500 and 3500 (equipped with a 68RFE Auto) HP and torque have increased to 370 hp and 850 lb-ft to provide the right power for these models.
In addition to moving to a higher capability high pressure pump, several critical features were implemented to maintain the proven reliability and durability our customers have come to expect:
A Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) material for the block allows us to increase the cylinder pressure capability while reducing the overall weight by almost 60 lbs
A new cast-iron cylinder head containing high-temperature capable exhaust valves actuated by all-new hydraulic lash adjusters in the block eliminates the need for valvetrain adjustment service intervals
The heart of the engine is a higher-strength alloy crankshaft with a 10-bolt crank flange driving newly-designed forged connecting rods and new bearings which transfer power from the low-friction ring-wrapped pistons
A new larger Cummins Holset variable-geometry turbocharger optimized with heavy duty bearings, and a new compressor-side housing is a key ingredient in the new ratings, pumping 33 pounds per square inch (psi) of fresh air into the engine
The new fuel-delivery system includes a new 29,000 psi (2,000 bar) fuel pump and fuel rail with Cummins Filtration “filter in filter” NanoNet® technology

@richard

a short declarative statement will do. Without some context from you all that cutting & pasting is pointless.

Now that the 1,000 ft lbs torque barrier has been breached,
it'll be only a matter of time before the other 2 jump on the
bandwagon. Seems that Cummins dropped the hp and jacked
up the torque. You find that in commercially rated diesels- one
number goes down and the other goes up. See the 2 versions
of the Cummins 5.0L that is used in the Nissan Titan vs. the one used in commercial trucks.

So, what we have here boys and girls, is now a power level that will get a LOT of people in trouble-specifically, those
newbies , who, with a mountain of power under their right
foot, will now seek to defy the bounds of normalcy, road safety
and common sense. With a ridiculous towing capacity of over
35,000 lbs, God help anyone near a panicked tyro coming
down a mountain pass and not knowing how to properly
operate their rig. Talk about white knuckle city !!!!!
In any event, Ford and GM have some homework to do....the
race is on.

Something is wrong with the math concerning the 30 year partnership with Ram.

Its a typo

Instead of typical nature of piping off, you should have quickly taken a look. The partnership began in 1989 with the Cummins B Series 5.9L.

It has been 30 years you bonehead

@richard

Thanks for taking the time to cut and paste all that great info. Other people come on here and talk about stock prices when they are proven wrong time and time again. A lot of good info you supplied there. Unrelated, off topic declarative statements are too common and pointless on this site. Nice to see a user with a brain post something with substance.

Chingon seriously needs to see an optometrist if he thinks this Ram's grille and tailgate look like older Fords. Seriously, they're not even close. The only thing close is that Ram has overtaken Chevy and is movin' on up. And there is a very good reason for that!

TNT....thank you sir. Seems I'm boring papajim. Context?
The data on the new Cummins alone should speak for itself.
Besides, isn't the origin of this thread in part a info peek into the
upgrades/updates that Cummins did?

All I did was supply the minutia that was left out. There are a lot
of potential buyers that would LOVE to know whats under the
hood of their $75,000.00 truck. And yes, there are data freaks
who thrive on details. Obviously, you don't.

Why not just make both of them have 1000ft lbs of tq?

TNT,

Most 3/4 ton trucks don't need that level of power. That's why
the 1 tons are offered with both versions. I only wish the 2500
would have been offered with the new ZF 8 speed Powerline
tranny. What a combo that would have been.....

a user with a brain post...Posted by: TNT GMC | Jan 14, 2019

Where to begin? What a moron.

Nice job RAM, I believe their designs/looks & interiors are better than Ford and Chevy but still have my doubt's with reliability even with Hemi and Cummins diesel power plants.

If you are going to cut & paste info, why not provide attribution? The rest of us assume that PUTC comments are actual comments and not somebody's cribbed homework. Get real.

Its a typo

So there is a recall already ?

It looks the same to me just pure junk like the 2020 Chebby 2500 HD. Ford is the king of trucks like it or not.

Ford and Chebby got NOTHING to compare to the leader in off road for over 70 years. The combat proven first name in 4x4. The legendary Power Wagon.

" that makes it able to go nearly anywhere wide enough to accommodate its considerable mass."

The mighty Power Wagon makes it's own trails.

Papajim,
I can now see why so many people have it in for you....nothing
was cribbed. Cutting and pasting takes a minute or two. If you need help doing it, I'll send you a pictorial.

And you know what they say about assuming....I tried to keep it simple, succinct and to the point. Apparently, it was too much or you....I have no idea nor do I care what you drive, but
judging from your snarky comments, it's not a Ram. You can
drop the know-it-all attitude anytime you like....We should be
on
this site to educate, inform and swap ideas. Maybe you should
try to get a job as a third rate hack writer for CNN. Over at
CNN, talent is not a requirement. And this will be the last
time I respond to anything you have to say.

thank God!
