Among its plans for 2015, Dodge, one of the world’s best in the manufacture of truck vehicles, is prepared to release yet another world-beater model to fill the truck vehicle segment: the 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel. Having manufactured other trucks such as the 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 and the 2015 Dodge Ram 2500 that did so well on the US market, the 2016 Ram, which has more advanced features, is expected to reach and even surpass the heights hit by its predecessor.
2016 Dodge Ram 2500: Exterior Design
The outer of this vehicle is expected to be the same as the other version of the Ram 2500, just that some class and style has been introduced to this latest version. The most noticeable changes can be spotted on the bumpers, scuff plates and also the chrome fenders. It has chromed grille and bumper with larger rims that gives to it a stronger look. Another major change is on the new crossed framework whereby a black color has been added to make the truck look a little tougher. The expected switch to a lighter aluminum body is not going to happen. According to a top official on the inside, no prospective customer has asked for an aluminum body.
2016 Dodge Ram 2500: Interior Design
When it comes to the interior, there are no much changes either. The biggest changes are with wood grains, the upholstery which is made of leather, and the metallic accents which are a perfect match for the interior and exterior design of this truck. The features that are retained from the 2015 Dodge Ram 2500 include comfortable leather seats, power steering wheel, adaptive air suspension, DVD player and Wi-Fi connectivity. It has six seats and can therefore capacities up to 8 passengers.
2016 Dodge Ram 2500: Engine, MPG
Dodge has generally not done so much modification to the 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 to make this new model as the diesel engine variant is nearly identical for both. There will be two engine options under its hood; a 5.7 liter HEMI V8 engine which is the higher and more powerful variant, and the base variant equipped with a 3.5 liter V6 TDI engine. With 8 speed automatic transmissions, the truck can be used in the city with higher ground.
This truck is expected to be very efficient in diesel consumption. Its engine is EPA rated with a combined 23 mpg and 28 mpg highway rating. The fact that diesel powered RAM models are demanded in a rate that is approximately three times that of gasoline engine models only brings more proof that this 2016 Ram 2500 is really efficient.
2016 Dodge Ram 2500: Release Date and Price
For whoever is expecting to have this big machine in their carport, you will unfortunately have to wait for the whole of 2015. The exact release date has not yet been revealed but it is expected to happen late in 2015 so that the car will be available in the market starting from January 2015. As for its price, the 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 is expected to cost between $ 35,000 and $ 40,000. This might sound relatively too huge for a pickup truck, but once you purchase this truck – you will realize that what you have is value for your money.
