You'll Like The 2012 Ram 2500 If...

If you need to pull 10,000, 15,000 or 20,000 pounds behind you, the PeterBilt-like towing power of the 2012 Ram HD pickup should do the trick.

Dodge RAM trucks The monitor that displays everything you need in your vehicle.

I love the size of my Dodge 2500 RAM truck! It has all the bells and whistles, such As: backup camera, GPS (gets me wherever I need to go). It has electric windows and locks, has cooling and heated seats, which I love! Has a phone set up on the monitor which pairs with my cell so I can talk hands free. Radio and CD player in monitor that I love! There is a lot of floor storage in the Dodge RAM, has plenty of legroom and the middle seat comes down for a drink holder and armrest. The back middle window also slides open to get fresh air! The front console has so much storage, even a locked one at the bottom which lifts up and makes the front seat a three person bench seat. Also has a sunroof which I use quite a bit. I like that I have a heavy duty grill, it helps if you ever hit a deer, which I hope never happens. It has a 4-wheel drive which I can go off-roading and the 20 inch tires helps on slippery roads. The Dodge 2500 RAM pulls trailers so much better than the 1500 that I have had before. It definitely pulls better up hills and pulls fifth wheels really well. So if you ask me what kind of truck would I buy? Between all the trucks out there, my choice would be a Dodge RAM. I have had a 1500 Chevrolet Silverado, but the Dodge RAM with all the bells and whistles, and not to forget the leather seats, my choice is always the Dodge RAM 2500!

Best truck for your buck!

It is extremely powerful. It pulls weight with ease due to its high payload capacity. The crew cab is very spacious which makes it great for families. I have never had any performance issues out of it. The information dashboard has a message center which has told me when I have a flat tire or need an oil change. It has storage under the back seats and in the floorboard of the backseat which makes it great for family road trips. It has a trailer package that helps with being able to use different hookups to haul many different things. It would make a great work truck, daily driver or family vehicle.

My 2012 Ram 2500 is great, the acceleration is fast.

My 2012 Ram 2500 is a great truck I love the way it drives and I especially love the way it breaks the only problem is I've had problems with the radio breaking and having to get it fixed a lot but other than that this truck is 10/10. I would recommend this car to people that love trucks and have experience driving trucks because it can be difficult to drive unless you already know how to drive a truck being that it is high above the ground and large.
