By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

Editor's Overview

The Ram 2500 and 3500 are heavy-duty pickups from Chrysler's truck brand, and for 2013 boast class-leading power and towing capability. Powered by gasoline, diesel, or natural gas, these trucks are meant for hauling extreme loads such as boats, horses and commercial trailers. While geared for work, Ram HD trucks are available with a bounty of creature comforts.

It is so bouncy and drives like a truck.

I like the rain sensor windshield wipers... I dislike the leather seat aging.. I dislike the low fuel mileage..
