When Work Gets Tough, the Tough Get RAM | 2017 RAM 2500 & RAM 3500 at Vernon Auto Group

RAM has never been afraid to embrace its big, bold, rugged heritage, but they’re also some of the most powerful, most comfortable, and most capable pickup trucks out there on the road today. While the RAM 1500 is certainly the most well-known, today we’re skipping the RAM 1500 to focus on some Texas-sized trucks: the RAM 2500 and the RAM 3500. If you’ve been considering a new worksite companion, consider these two burly siblings. Check out our detailed descriptions below, and if you’re interested in these great pickups, come see us.

With the RAM Lineup, Working Smarter is a Given | Exploring Features, Power, & Capability in the 2017 RAM 2500 & RAM 3500 Trucks

The RAM Lineup offers dependable, tough, and reliable workhorses for all kinds of jobs, from transit and cargo vans all the way up to the biggest, baddest pickup trucks, like the RAM 1500, RAM 2500, and RAM 3500; there are also rugged work chassis and wagons to choose from, but today, we’re going to focus on the RAM 2500 and RAM 3500. We want to show drivers from Vernon, Amarillo, Lubbock, Wichita Falls, and Oklahoma City, TX why RAM pickup trucks are the clear choice when it comes to getting big jobs done right.

RAM 2500

The 2017 RAM 2500 is available in seven awesome trims, including the special RAM 2500 Power Wagon, perfect for going off the beaten path right from the factory. Drivers have the choice between gas and diesel engines: a 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine and the Heavy-Duty 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine. When it comes to body style, you again have a lot of choices, because the RAM 2500 offers three cab sizes (Regular Cab, Crew Cab, and Mega Cab), two bed lengths (8-foot or 6.4-foot), and two drivetrain configurations (4×2 or 4×4). Inside, leather seating surfaces are an attractive option, but the available Command Center really takes center stage.

2017 RAM 3500

Like the RAM 2500, the RAM 3500 also benefits from the choice between gas and diesel engines, the same 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine and the Heavy-Duty 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine as the RAM 2500. And like the 2500 before it, the 2017 RAM 3500 gives you plenty of choice: six trims, three cabs, two bed lengths, and two drivetrain configurations. This truck is perfect for upfitting into a specialized work truck thanks to its available Upfitter Switches, making it easy to wire-in a plow or tow lights to give you a specialized, high-tech tool box on wheels. The interior of the 3500, like the 2500 before it, is spacious and comfortable, featuring supple available leathers and available genuine woodgrain paneling.
