Engines & Performance

Powertrain Capability

All this power has to be bred somewhere, and the two engine options of the Ram 2500 are more than up to the task. That adds up to best-in-class standard gas horsepower from the 6.4L HEMI with 410, and matching that up with 17,580 lbs (7,974 kg) of towing ability. For those who really want to get serious about towing, the 6.7L Cummins diesel engine is sure to satisfy those hungry for diesel capability.


The Ram 2500 was built for towing, and is the true example of how a towing pickup should perform. How well does it do it? How about towing up to 20,000 lbs (9,072 kg) of weight on its trusty diesel engine. An available 5th-wheel/Gooseneck prep group comes with mounting holes, covers and a 7-pin connector.


Taking on so much payload, to the tune of 4,010 lbs (1,819 kg), is made possible by the high-strength frame build and suspension of the truck. The Multilink Coil Spring Rear suspension is a class-exclusive, to maintain all of that stability, with the Auto-Level Rear Air Suspensions available to provide the perfect level for the truck.

12-inch Uconnect Media System

Do you want the largest touchscreen in its class? The Ram 2500 has got you covered. Operate on the Uconnect multimedia system through the 12-inch touchscreen, your source for navigation, apps like SiriusXM, and connecting your own smartphone through Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

Customizable In-Cluster Display

Set your vehicle data exactly as you want it, and conveniently right in your field of view thanks to the available 7-inch full-colour display centre. This hub of important info contains everything from your engine’s performance and fuel efficiency to the temperature outside, so you can stay up-to-date with your pickup in an instant.

Harman Kardon Sound System

How can an audio system look good and sound good at the same time? It’s the speciality of this Harman Kardon system, which matches its stainless steel grille with 17 speakers (featuring an 8-inch subwoofer), for crisp and clear sound across the cabin.


360° Surround-View Camera

Get a clear view of everything around your Ram with the 360° Surround-View Camera, which means connecting a trailer or parking is easier than ever. The ParkView Rear Back-up camera offers a wide-angle view and dynamic gridlines to make your trailer hookup a breeze. Just have cargo in your box? Keep track of it through the Cargo View Camera and available digital rearview mirror.

Safety Alert Features

Four top alert features keep your safety in mind on every drive in your Ram 2500. Monitor adjacent lanes thanks to Blind-Spot Monitoring, stay in your lane with Lane Keep Assist, cruise in control and comfort with Adaptive Cruise Control and prevent collisions thanks to the Forward Collision Warning.

Smart Towing

The Ram 2500 doesn’t just use the raw power of its engine to tow your trailer, there’s a host of safety technologies that make the job easier and more secure. Electronic Stability Control with Trailer Sway Control keeps your trailer in control, while the Trailer Brake Controller helps you with the efficiency of braking in keeping everything cool and in check. A Trailer Light Check will cycle through the signal, brake and tail lamps, making an inspection of your trailer a simple task.

2021 Ram 2500 Model Changes

Forever advancing in their capability potential sees the heavy duty Ram with an increase in torque and towing ratings for the year. Also added is a new available digital rearview mirror, which gives you a real-time video feed thanks to the rear-facing camera, and can easily be turned off to its traditional rearview mirror style when needed.
