The New 2016 RAM 2500 – Made To Tow
Trucks are designed to work. It might be pulling the family boat to the lake for fun and fishing, pulling the travel trailer to that favorite vacation location, or a tractor to the work site. Selecting the proper truck for the towing requirements needed to get the job done is an important decision. Some manufactures advertise theirs is the best. The 2016 RAM 2500 has the lead when it comes to performance, quality and durability. With the most powerful diesel engine on the market today or the famous HEMI gasoline engine there is no wonder the 2016 RAM 2500 is the truck to get the job done.
They All work Together
Towing a trailer requires a complete truck. Starting with a strong frame, the proper motor and transmission along with a strong suspension.
The frame on the new 2016 RAM 2500 is designed for heady-duty work. Constructed of 50KSI hydroformed steel it has additional cross members added for additional strength and support. Front and rear rail contours are placed to provide secure suspension components and mounts giving added strength to the overall frame.
A strong suspension is required to support heavy loads and provide a smooth ride for the driver and passengers. The 2016 RAM 2500 has a Five-Link Coil Rear Suspension system consisting of a proprietary spring technology of five-link coils to help reduce overall friction without sacrificing heavy-duty towing capability.
Heavy-duty towing requires a strong and adjustable rear suspension system. The 2016 RAM 2500 has it all. Available is a class-exclusive rear air suspension to level the rear of the truck. On a smooth road or rough terrain with the push of a button the driver can select from two ride heights to level the payload and trailer. This is provided by automatic electronic adjustments to maintain a level load.
Three Engine Choices
Of course the power plant is the lead when towing. Engine power and torque play the most vital role. The selection of the proper engine to do the job is very important. At Hoyte Dodge we specialize in providing all the necessary advice to make this choice.

This powerful engine uses the same hemispherical technology as its smaller companion. The cylinder bore and stroke have been increased for greater displacement. Fuel Saver Technology has been added to assist resulting in increased power and efficiency. This state of the art engine comes in at 410 HP with 429 LB-FT of Torque, Towing 16,300 lbs, and Payload of 3,970 lbs.
