2010 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Review


Although it looks more like a scaled-down Peterbilt than the outgoing Heavy Duty and adopts many styling cues from the latest incarnation of its smaller brother (Ram 1500), including a more aerodynamic grille and new headlight assemblies, the 2010 Ram HD's hood, front fascia, bumper and grille assembly are actually unique to the larger truck.Offered in a choice of ST, SLT, TRX, off-road specialized Powerwagon and luxury Laramie trim levels, the current Ram HD is designed to cater to a wide variety of buyers. As a result, prices run the gamut, from a fairly inexpensive $28,165 for a base, regular cab ST 4x2, up to a substantial $51,595 for a 3500 Mega Cab Laramie.

Laramie models are offered with two-tone paint and plenty of chrome. In addition, a crew cab with larger rear doors replaces the former quad cab and slots between the regular and Mega cab configurations. Pickup boxes are available in 6 feet 4 inch or 8 feet lengths the short box with all cab configurations, the latter available with regular and crew cabs only.

Exterior fit and finish are decent, perhaps not quite up to the same level as Ford's new 2011 Super Duty, but panel gaps are more precise than the old Ram and paint quality appears to be noticeably better. A clever feature (optional on 2500 trucks, standard on 3500s), are the 7x11-inch dual-purpose exterior mirrors that can be rotated upwards for better visibility when towing trailers.

Not much on the new look. Think they spent too much time on the front end and had to throw previous year's box on. I'll stick with 94-09 styles myself.

yea, i also think the new dodge looks too much like a ford and the interior doesnt impress me. i personally liked the truck better when it was a bench seat. (thats just me though)
