2016 Ram 1500 or 2500: Which is For You?

RAM 1500vs.RAM 2500

We understand how serious Texans are about their trucks. They make all the difference in our daily lives because they determine what all we can do. Work, play, et cetera… these areas of your lifestyle should be considered when shopping for a new pickup truck. There are many specifications to address for your specific needs, so which Ram truck best suits you?


All Ram trucks provide amazing performance, convenience, and a comfortable cabin, but today, we’ll focus on the RAM 1500 and 2500.


RAM 1500

Even base model RAM 1500 Tradesman breaks the common misconception that the 1500 is a “half-ton” truck, as it has a max payload of 1,880 pounds and a max towing capacity of 10,640 pounds…More than enough to get the job done!


The Ram 1500 is offered in a choice of the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, 5.7-liter HEMI V8, and the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6, offering an impressive buffet of performance and fuel economy.


RAM 2500

Equally misleading truck qualifications like “three-quarter-ton” and “one-ton” also don’t apply to the RAM 2500, because HD trucks like the RAM 2500 and 3500 offer much greater capabilities than the suggestion of these terms. The RAM Tradesman 2500 has a max payload of 3,990 pounds and a max towing capacity of 17,980 pounds.


Compared to the RAM 1500, the HD RAM 2500 is available with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 VVT, 6.4-liter HEMI V8, and the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel. If you plan to tow much heavier loads, spring for RAM towing packages that are meant to deliver longer dependability and a heartier capability.


The most important thing to consider when choosing between the 2016 RAM 1500 and the 2016 RAM 2500 is the weights you plan to haul. A larger boat or a heavy-duty construction trailer, or big camper trailer will most likely demand a RAM 2500.


To be sure, feel free to call us or stop by to have any and all of your RAM truck questions answered. We would love the opportunity to serve you!
