Body style: Truck
Segment: Fullsize Pickup

RAM refreshed the 2500 lineup for the 2016 model year and brought several improvements in all the areas.

In the regular cab shape, the well-known pickup provided what was necessary for a hard-working truck.

While most private customers looked for the bigger versions of the vehicle, the companies that needed a simple, no-nonsense workhorse ticked the Regular Cab version. They did that not only because it was the most affordable but also came with a longer bed.

The car's exterior varied depending on the trim level. While the base models sported black bumpers and were offered only in white, the other versions were provided with various colors and chromed bumpers. Moreover, the base model featured steel wheels. Still, the carmaker provided an option for a few alloy wheels for the upper trim levels.

RAM knew that most work trucks were used for daily dirty jobs, and that's why it provided the vehicle with either fabric or vinyl upholstery. The latter was offered on the Tradesman version along with a set of cranked windows. Moreover, the plastic on the dashboard was sturdy and designed to be wiped clean with a piece of cloth. But if the customers asked for more, the carmaker provided higher quality trims and an 8.4" Uconnect infotainment unit with reversing camera.

Under the hood, the Regular Cab received a wide engine choice starting with a 5.6-liter V-8 and going up to a 6.4-liter Hemi. The diesel versions sported towing hooks at the front, and Cummins provided the 6.7-liter inline-six engines. Moreover, the carmaker provided an option for a CNG V8 powerplant.
