2012 Ram 2500 Review

(0 Stars)  Heavy Duty isn't some marketing gimmick.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The most notable change for the 2012 Ram Heavy Duty lineup is the availability of a six-speed automatic transmission for trucks equipped with the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine. What does that mean to an owner? Less gear hunting while towing heavy loads, which is always a plus. The transmission also performs automatic downshifts when decelerating. As it did last year, the Ram offers buyers a 6.7-liter turbo-diesel in-line six-cylinder engine that produces 650 lb-ft of torque with the standard six-speed manual transmission and 800 lb-ft with the optional six-speed automatic. The manual transmission has an ultra-low first-gear ratio, which makes hauling a breeze. Another benefit of diesel models is standard exhaust brake, which reduces brake fade and prolongs brake life. The Ram Heavy Duty pickup can be distinguished from its light-duty sibling by its larger grille and taller, louvered hood. The front fenders and the headlights are still shared with the 1500, as is the refined and technology-laden interior. To dampen some of the jostle that's inherent in big pickups, the HD Ram gets a pair of liquid-filled mounts between the rear of the cab and the frame. The off-road-ready Power Wagon has additional ground clearance, electric-locking front and rear differentials, electronic disconnecting sway bar, Bilstein shocks, 33-inch BFGoodrich off-road tires, underbody skid plate protection, a 4.56 axle ratio for hill climbing, and a custom-built 12,000-pound winch.
