2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Overview

For 2005, the Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 got a new Power Wagon trim with new electric locking front and rear wheel differentials, which will further reduce the wear and tear on your wheels when you corner. Power sunroof and Sirius radio now come as options. Finally, the Ram 2500 stands a couple inches taller and gets some new 33 inch off-road tires.

This powerful domestic pickup gives you plenty to choose from with its 20 trims. All 20 have an impressive standard 5.7 L, 345 hp V8 powertrain with available 4 and 5 speed automatic or 6 speed manual transmission. In addition, all trims come in either 2 door, 3 seat or 4 door, 6 seat configurations. Max towing capacity generally ranges from 11000 to just over 13000 lbs.

Overall, drivers like the Dodge Ram 2500's towing, engine power, smooth ride, and comfortable interior. On the other hand, the rear seat could use a little extra room and the Ram 2500 doesn't have enough variety for some when it comes to seating configurations. In any event, the 2005 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500 does pretty much everything you'd expect from an upper echelon domestic pickup truck.
