Ram trucks remains one of the top selling pickups because Ram creates trucks that perform just as well as they look. Heavy-duty trucks like the 2013 Ram 2500 are not purchased for looks alone. Consumers buy them to do the tough jobs, be it towing a trailer, negotiating rough terrain or hauling construction equipment. Think it can’t get any better? Think again. This year’s model saw some impressive improvements. Expect a higher payload capacity, a slightly refreshed exterior, better towing and superb torque.
While the exterior has for the most part remained unchanged, the 2013 Ram 2500’s taller grille and raised hood are easier on the eye. Ram designers have always had drivers needs on their mind. For 2013, they’ve refreshed and reoriented bodyside badges to provide enough space to accommodate commercial banners and custom graphics in a single panel. The optional RamBox bed side enclosed storage area along with the tailgate are now included in the keyless enter-and-go central locking system for ultimate convenience.
The 2013 Ram 2500 has the best interior around. Upgrade from the basics to get the luxurious soft-touch materials, perforated leathery upholstery, plush seats, stylish stitching, metallic accents and heavily texture wood trim. Such features almost make you forget you’re driving a pick-up. The controls are intelligently designed based on functionality for increased ease of use. What’s more, there are so many combinations of amenities to choose from. Ever find yourself needing five auxiliary jacks? Maybe not, but just in case, you have that option.
