With a maximum towing capacity of up to 15,500 pounds, the 2012 Ram 2500 is a heavy-duty pickup that has the muscle to handle the toughest of jobs from St. Charles and St. Louis to Springfield. Rear-wheel and four-wheel drive versions are available. The 2500 is fueled by a 5.7-liter V8 engine that generates 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is also standard. Customers can opt for a 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine with an exhaust brake rather than the standard gasoline. The optional inline-6 creates 350 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque when it is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. With a six-speed automatic transmission, the diesel engine produces 800 pound-feet of torque.
The Ram 2500 is also a heavyweight in the comfort and style departments. The 2500's well-tuned suspension delivers a surprisingly comfortable ride, and the passenger cabin features high-quality materials and user-friendly controls. Dual glove boxes and multiple storage compartments create ample storage space without sacrificing headroom or space for stretching tired legs. The optional RamBox storage system positions lockable storage compartments over the rear fenders for additional protected storage space in the bed. The details create a very upscale overall effect, making the Ram 2500 a great choice for date nights in St. Louis.
A variety of cab styles, bed lengths and trim levels make it easy to customize a 2012 Ram 2500 to suit your needs. The Regular Cab seats three and is available with an eight-foot bed only. The Crew Cab seats up to six and is available with 6'4'' and 8' beds. The Mega Cab also has the capacity to seat up to six passengers, but it comes only with a 6'4" bed.
The base trim level for the 2012 2500 is the ST, which is available on Regular and Crew Cab models. Standard equipment on the ST includes air conditioning, vinyl upholstery, electronic vehicle information display and 17-inch steel wheels. The grille and bumpers are black, and the bench seat is a 40/20/40 split. The sound system includes six speakers and an auxiliary audio jack. Power windows and locks are standard on Crew Cab models.
All cab styles can be trimmed at the SLT level. SLT cabins feature keyless entry, cloth upholstery, satellite radio, sliding rear window and full power accessories. Cruise control, heated power-folding exterior mirrors, electronic trailer brake control and chrome-clad wheels are also standard.
Several optional packages are available with the SLT trim. The Big Horn package adds a universal garage door opener, leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted audio controls, fog lights and an automatically dimming rearview mirror on Crew Cab and Mega Cab models. Remote start, tow hooks, power driver and passenger seats, limited-slip rear differential and polished alloy wheels are included in the Outdoorsman package, which is powered by the turbodiesel engine for adventures throughout Missouri.
Crew Cab and Mega Cab models are available with Laramie trim. The Laramie is equipped with heated front seats, rear parking sensors and memory functions for the power driver seat. Power-adjustable pedals, automatic temperature control (with dual zones), an upgraded sound system, auto-dimming mirrors and polished aluminum wheels add to the Laramie's luxurious look and feel. The Laramie Longhorn has even more standard convenience features including a navigation system, back up camera, remote start and ventilated front bucket seats.
