Ram 2500 (Laramie)

CUMMINS ENGINE

 Cummins -Engine

Combine world-class capability with outstanding performance and you've got the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. Virtually indestructible in design, the Cummins Turbo Diesel is engineered to the tolerances, quality and durability to power semi class big rigs. Rated at 276kW and 1084Nm, the incredible torque delivers uncompromising strength for towing and hauling. The engine features a next generation Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) System and an ultra-efficient Diesel Cooling System with an 11 blade fan and a smart diesel exhaust brake.

Whether you carry your weight in a trailer or in your tub, the 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine delivers.

 

 

SIX SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

The Cummins Turbo Diesel engine is packaged with the 68RFE six-speed automatic transmission, which includes driver-adaptive shifting and three multiple clutch packs, dual filters on a dual stage pump and an independent lubrication cooler that delivers ample pressures under all loads and driving conditions.

 

ACTIVE AIR 

Sometimes, the best things come from sitting and listening. For years, Ram engineers learned from some of the toughest workers around: customers. It's paid off in increased performance, thanks to the Active Air®system, designed specifically for those who take trucks to the limit day in and day out.

In extreme heat or high altitudes, the Ram Active Air® system reads outside conditions and automatically switches to intake cooler air from the grille.

Ram Active Air® technology helps ensure optimal engine air intake regardless of climatic elements. We made sure that optimal power and torque are virtually certain in all tow, haul, push, pull scenarios-and even in the most extreme temperatures known to man.

  

TOUGH 4 X 4 

The transfer case in the Ram is exactly what you need for ultra 4x4 capability. The BorgWarner BW 44-46 transfer case features responsive electronic shift on the fly engineering with three operating ranges plus neutral. This impressive unit offers a long range reduction ratio of 2.64:1 - an ideal ratio when off road in a slow rock climbing situation or when using your Ram 4x4 on challenging terrain or steep grades. You need capability and performance that exceeds the need and Ram Heavy Duty trucks are designed to excel.

 

ADVANCED SUSPENSION

The Ram 2500 is defined by capability, with standards that allow zero tolerance for compromise or for convention. In front, a unique three-link coil spring suspension. At the back, a class exclusive five link coil spring suspension featuring unique multi-rate coil springs and heavy duty fixed displacement twin tube shock absorbers, both of which are placed in an outboard position that optimizes performance and minimises noise and vibration. Innovative Ram technology delivers it all: phenomenal ride quality, impeccable road manners and unrivalled control. Let the others try to catch up.

  

THE FRAME - UNCOMPROMISING SUPPORT

Whether used for business or pleasure a Ram Heavy Duty gives you the means to master the toughest tasks. The Ram 2500 uses ksi steel with eight tough cross members all contributing to robust towing and hauling. The front and rear sections are produced through hydroforming, a process that ensures durable strength and mass efficiencies. Rail contours are ideally placed for the suspension components and ancillary mounts. The frame strength gives you no-nonsense towing with structural integrity to ensure occupant comfort when hauling big payloads.

The proven ladder frame also features a large front suspension cross member with roll formed centre rail sections in a smart outwardly curved position to improve rear spring and shock placement.

 

THE TOWING EDGE 


2500-Towing -Car -2015  

 

True influence is determined not by what you say, but by what you do-and how much weight you pull. And with Ram Trucks one thing is clear, they do what heavy duty trucks should.

Whether you carry your weight in a trailer or in your cargo box, the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine delivers. The Ram 2500 generates 1084Nm of torque, an impressive maximum braked towing of 6,989kg using a pintle and a 913kg payload#.

 

CLASS V HITCH RECEIVER

With fully boxed rear rails and rear axle cross member, Ram pickups are specially designed to accommodate the Class V Hitch system, which provides up to 4500kg maximum braked towing capacity on a 70mm ball.

 

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL 

The Ram models come standard with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) - a system that optimizes vehicle stability and helps maintain directional control under demanding or adverse conditions. ESC compares the driver's steering input to the vehicle's actual movement, helping give you more control on the toughest jobs out there.

ESC has an added feature called Trailer Sway Dampening, which detects a swaying trailer and dampens the effect by applying brake pressure to alternating wheels and adjusting the throttle to bring the vehicle and the trailer under control.

 

DASH MOUNTED TRAILER BRAKE CONTROLLER

No matter how heavy the load, the dashboard-mounted Trailer Brake Controller lets you automatically or manually operate the electronic brakes on properly equipped trailers. And with the Electronic Range Select and tow/haul mode, you'll get the job done more easily than ever before.

 

LARAMIE: LIFE IS SWEET

Life -is -Sweet

 

Few pickups stand out with such sophistication as the Ram Laramie. The luxurious treatments and inviting interiors bring a wealth of appointments, design refinements, comfort and craftsmanship to the Ram.

You'll know, feel and see it from the moment you take a seat in the Ram Laramie, with features that include the distinctive six ring instrument cluster and the understated elegance of leather trim in stunning Premium Bristol Black with subtle instrument panel treatments. When it comes to luxury, it's clear - you've arrived.

 

UCONNECT CONNECTIVITY

Connectivity is key. Along with a full colour 8.4 inch touchscreen system. The brilliant universe of in-cab technology makes available a world of telematics and electronics. Uconnect includes Bluetooth, hands free voice command and indispensable NAV systems.

 

ELECTRONIC VEHICLE INFORMATION CENTRE 

Step into a Ram and you're stepping up to technology unimaginable a decade ago through the impressive Electronic Vehicle Information Centre (EVIC) display. The full colour seven inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display offers astonishing clarity and tonnes of real time mechanical data. Add scroll-type interfaces and intuitive steering wheel mounted toggle switches for instant vehicle information (there are 34 menu options and graphics) and PowerNet electrical architecture with smart modules and you're in control of all of it.

 

STORAGE

Intelligent thinking is evident throughout the Ram and storage is no exception.

Rear seats fold up or down for level floor hauling when materials are best carried inside. The front centre seat opens for at hand storage. Huge bins in the front doors offer serious volume. In floor storage bins are removable for draining ice and invaluable for keeping things out of sight.

 

INTERIOR

The Ram 2016 models have the understated elegance of leather trim in stunning Black Bristol.

 

 

FROM BRAKING TO BACKING UP

 Park -Sense

Groundbreakers go the distance, enduring early mornings and long evenings to do a job right. They go above and beyond, covering every detail-even the small things that others overlook. From braking to backing up, Ram engineers considered every angle to help you work more efficiently and securely.

 

CARGO VIEW CAMERA

The Cargo View Camera helps provide a view of the bed for easier hook up of trailers. This innovative camera also allows you to keep an eye on your cargo, with a clear image prominently displayed on the Uconnect® screen.

 

SMART EXHAUST BRAKE

The state-­of-­the-­art diesel "smart" exhaust brake was engineered to help provide excellent stopping power and control, giving you optimal command of the toughest loads, day in and day out.

 

PARKVIEW® REAR BACK UP CAMERA

The ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera is mounted within the tailgate handle to provide drivers with a clear view of what's behind them. The crisp colour dashboard display helps make parking and trailer hook ups a breeze.

 

ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL 

The Ram models come standard with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) - a system that optimizes vehicle stability and helps maintain directional control under demanding or adverse conditions. ESC compares the driver's steering input to the vehicle's actual movement, helping give you more control on the toughest jobs out there.
