2024-07-04

Big jobs require big tools, and that's why vehicles like the Ram 2500 and 3500 HD series exist. The American manufacturer's truck can tow loads of tens of thousands of pounds and carry heavy equipment. For some, it's an office on four wheels or literally a tool that helps them earn their living. For others, it's the means to fulfill their dreams, like buying a huge trailer and enjoying the best retirement. In short, whatever your project, whether professional or personal, chances are the RAM HD will meet all your needs.

 

The 2024 RAM HD is available in several configurations and offers a plethora of options. To sum up, it doesn't benefit from any major improvements this year because it already has everything to please. It's a robust vehicle with great qualities. In short, it's easy to see why it is among the favorite models in its segment and even in the market in general.

 

 

Range and Price

 

The RAM HD offers several configuration possibilities, ranging from the single cab with a long box to the crew cab with a short box, not to mention the chassis cab versions. In short, I could spend hours and hundreds of lines talking only about these configurations. Therefore, I will limit myself to the 2500 category in the pickup version. This one starts at $64,315 with the regular cab for the Tradesman version. Then we move on to the Big Horn version, which starts at $66,265. There is a jump of several tens of thousands of dollars to the Rebel version at $86,715. The RAM Power Wagon starts at $87,215, and the luxury Laramie version at $87,315. We then move on to the Limited Longhorn country version at $101,515. Finally, the Limited version tops the range at $105,115.

 

Category and Competition

 

There might not be dozens of options in the very large pickup truck segment, but the competition is still fierce. That's why the RAM HD outperforms year after year, and its technical skills are so impressive. However, what sets the American manufacturer's truck apart from the competition is the fact that.

 

Rivals: Chevrolet Silverado HD, Ford Super Duty, GMC Sierra HD

 

Design and Technologies

 

The 2024 RAM HD is clearly the most imposing truck in its category, especially with the six-wheel version. However, the American manufacturer's truck doesn't offer many choices in terms of colors.

 

The 2024 RAM HD has the most beautiful interior in its category, and its comfort level is far above average. The quality of the finish is impeccable, and the attention to detail is very impressive. The American manufacturer's truck offers a plethora of advanced technologies. Its multimedia system is among the most efficient and enjoyable to use on the market.

 

Performance

 

If there's one name to remember here, it's Cummins. The American manufacturer and the engine maker partnered many years ago, and that's one of the main reasons why the RAM HD is still so popular today. It offers two variants of the Cummins engine, starting with a 6.7-liter inline-six producing 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque, which is already huge. However, you can get even more with the high-output version. This one delivers 400 horsepower and 1,075 pound-feet of torque. In both cases, there's a six-speed automatic transmission and standard 4x4 drive.

 

The RAM HD is also available with a gasoline engine. It's a 6.4-liter V8 with 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. Here, an eight-speed automatic transmission is offered, and 4x4 drive is also standard. This engine offers a more aggressive drive and is very popular, especially in the Power Wagon version.

 

Weak Points

 

Maintenance costs can be very high with the diesel engine. Some option choices are limited. Availability is more restricted than the competition.

 

Strong Points

 

It's a robust truck capable of performing almost any task. The 2024 RAM HD is the most attractive and impressive truck in its segment, especially in its dual-wheel version. It offers a superior-quality interior and is by far the most comfortable model in its category.

 

Signature Elements

 

The choice of engines, the design, and especially the comfort.

 

Final Word

 

The RAM HD is the kind of truck you should choose for its technical specs and capabilities. Yet, most buyers choose it emotionally, and that's what makes it such a popular vehicle.
