Coming a year after the debut of a new suspension setup that uses a radius-arm setup in front and a five-link design where the competition has leaf springs, the Ram 2500 continues to impress people for 2015. For the new model year, Hill Descent Control has been added, along with optional Ram Work Grade vinyl seats designed to be extra durable and new power-folding mirrors. Engines available for the Ram 2500 are the 6.7L Cummins turbodiesel with 370 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque (when ordered with the automatic transmission), the gas-powered 6.4L Hemi V-8 with 410 hp and 429 lb-ft, or the 5.7L Hemi with 383 hp and 400 lb-ft.
