2014 Ram 2500

New for 2014

The 2014 Ram 2500 adds a third engine option, a 6.4-liter V-8 producing 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque, with cylinder deactivation.

Vehicle Overview

The 2014 Ram 2500 is a quarter-ton truck sold in three cab styles, two bed lengths, and six grades in rear- or four-wheel-drive configurations. It is available with three engine options, including a diesel I-6, and a maximum towing capacity of 17,150 pounds. The larger, heavy duty Ram 3500 is also available with the same powertrain options and a 30,000-pound towing capacity.

Summary

In addition to the new 6.4-liter V-8, the 2014 Ram 2500 is available with a smaller 5.7-liter V-8 producing 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque or a 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel I-6 making 370 hp and 660 lb-ft (385 hp and 800 lb-ft with the automatic). Trucks equipped with V-8 engines are available exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission while diesel variants are offered with an optional six-speed manual.
The 2014 Ram 2500’s interior is a pleasant place to be with high-quality materials and user-friendly controls that make it appear more upscale. Convenience features such as a heated seat and steering wheel, and navigation make the truck livable and comfortable for commuting with a cabin that rivals luxury cars. However, ride quality remains “harsh compared to the crossovers and cars we’re used to.”
Depending on the drivetrain configuration, the 2014 Ram 2500 has a three- or four-star rollover safety rating from the NHTSA.

What We Think

The 2014 Ram 2500 is a capable work truck with generous towing capacity and a plush interior that belies its role as a utilitarian vehicle. We said in a 2010 Editor’s Notebook review that the Ram 2500’s interior “gives away nothing to conventional people haulers” with its high-quality cabin and host of available convenience features. However, we noted that the suspension’s utility-focused tuning made the Ram 2500’s ride rough “but tolerable for commuting.” The expensive pricing of the truck particularly the $8160 premium commanded by the diesel engine means that it’s easy to price one “into the $50,000 territory.”

2014 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Front Three Quarters
2014 Ram Power Wagon Gains More Power, Capability
With its beginnings as a 1940s military truck converted for civilian use, the Power Wagon has always been a no-nonsense off-roader that could handle whatever stood in its path. The 2014 Ram Power Wagon continues that tradition of fearsome capability, while also adding substantial on-road functionality for the daily driver.

Feature Flick: Does Ram Think Its HD Trucks Are Tough? Hell Yes
Ram keeps the hammer down on its HD truck advertising campaign, with some follow-up ads from last week's "Walk a Mile" ad. You may have seen the spots on TV as well as YouTube. This week, the indomitable narration talents of Sam Elliot rhetorically ask viewers if their truck can "Tow that, haul this, make it all the way over the top of that?" The emphatic answer of course, is "Hell Yes."
