2017 Ram 2500 HD Review
A day doesn’t pass when we don’t learn about a new car being launched in the market. And yes, it sure ends up becoming the highlight of the day. If you’ve been wondering what the 2017 Ram 2500 HD has to offer, here’s an in-depth review. Even with their big engines and (somewhat) high fuel consumption, the market for trucks continues to see new models being introduced and growing in popularity because there is nothing quite like the power you feel in your hands when you are driving a truck. The Ram 2500 HD does offer a lot of impressive features as well as exuding a street presence that’s hard to ignore.
The 2017 Ram 2500 HD truck is a giant with massive power behind the wheels. The shape may be a bit simple in comparison to many other trucks but the other features like the quad halogen lamps and the front grill give it a different look. Different variants come with either 2 doors or 4 doors. The overall design of this truck enables it to be well-protected during collisions. It does meet the requirements for towing purposes and has a lot of cargo space in the back. It features a 50,000-PSI hydroformed steel frame that is able to incorporate additional cross members for providing more strength. You will also notice hydroformed front and rear rail contours.
The 2017 Ram 2500 HD offers an impressive interior. Well-designed front panels, well-equipped steering wheel and ample space for you to stretch your legs are some of the features that you’ll enjoy. The truck also has a great multimedia 8.4-inch infotainment system. The said system allows Wifi hotspot, Satellite Radio, and Navigation. You will also find that the rear seats are not only comfortable but also have storage space underneath them, only adding to what this truck has to offer. There’s also a handy storage compartment between the two front seats.
The 2017 Ram 2500 HD comes with the tonneau cover features that makes it more aerodynamic. Furthermore, the additional wheel-to-wheel side steps also play a role in improving the aerodynamics of this vehicle. So not only are you getting power but also performance if you want to enjoy high speeds. There are also the additional power exterior mirrors. These mirrors offer integrated turn signals, driver memory, power folding, and heated defrost.
You can also go for the durable box rail caps if you’ll be carrying a lot of cargo and want to prevent scratches. Additional interior features include work-grade vinyl seats, under floor storage, and full-color 7-inch cluster. The 2017 Ram 2500 is available for you in multiple configurations. It offers three cab styles, two bed lengths, three engines, even two transmissions, and a total of seven trim levels.
