The upcoming 2025 RAM 2500 is poised for a subtle yet impactful makeover. While the changes may appear modest on the surface, a keen eye will spot the refined aesthetics and a fresh interior design. However, the real game-changer lies beneath the vehicle’s exterior, where a cutting-edge 10-speed Allison Transmission is set to make its debut. This technological advancement promises not only a smoother ride but also enhanced fuel efficiency, surpassing its predecessors.
Some aspects of the beloved RAM 2500 remain unaltered: its rugged, durable exterior, dependable performance, unrivaled off-road capabilities, and impressive towing and payload capacities. The vehicle’s tradition of offering a diverse range of trim levels and customization options also remains a cornerstone of its appeal. In fact, the forthcoming model is set to build upon this reputation by introducing even more choices and selections, ensuring that it caters to a wide array of preferences and needs.
