Ram to Offer Bi-Fuel CNG 2500 in Regular Cab, 2WD Configurations

4x4 Crew Cab Continues, New Models Available Late 2015

Mar 4, 2015
Ram was one of the first fullsize truck makers to offer a fully factory-built bi-fuel CNG truck with the Ram 2500, but the truck was offered in only one configuration initially: long-bed, crew cab, 4x4. Likely due to feedback from many of its fleet customers that didn’t need the extra passenger space and four-wheel drive, Ram will now offer the 2500 CNG in regular cab and 2WD configurations.

As before, it’s not a full-CNG conversion, and therefore, it is not eligible for the California’s coveted “white” sticker, which allows single-passenger carpool lane access. The CNG tanks are mounted at the front part of the 8-foot bed, giving an effective usable bed length of 4 feet, 8 inches. Claimed highway CNG range is 301 miles, with an astounding total combined CNG and gasoline range of 966 miles when equipped with the available 35-gallon gasoline tank. The Ram 2500 CNG has a 1,580-pound payload and 7,650-pound towing capacity, and it comes standard with 4 and 7-pin trailer connectors and a Class IV hitch receiver, as well as an integrated trailer brake controller. The truck is covered by Ram’s 5-year, 100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty, with the ancillary CNG hardware, such as the tanks and fuel filler, covered by the truck’s 3-year, 36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. The new configurations of the Ram 2500 CNG will be available for purchase in the later part of 2015.
