The 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 may also be called the Chrysler Ram 2500 due to some re-organization from within the Chrysler company, the old Dodge name may not be branded on this big boy toys any longer. That being said the newest Ram 2500 is one of the strongest non-commercial trucks available. The Ram 2500 can tow up to 17,300 pounds. This powerhouse of a truck offers an amazing amount of sheer power and torque provided by a Cummings Diesel engine.
The 2010 Ram 2500 even comes complete with an exhaust brake that usually is only used on big rigs, but when you are pulling a huge load this can be a very helpful feature. This truck is a capable work vehicle for almost any job and still offers the same attractive styling that the 1500 model exhibits. The Ram 2500 has a winning combination of hard working and powerful guts and a very plush interior and beautiful exterior design. The Ram 2500 will be sure to be in the head of its class for 2010 and beyond, even without the Dodge Badge.
