2018 RAM Truck 2500 - New Berlin, WI

The 2018 Ram Truck 2500 for New Berlin: Engine Options & Exterior Highlights

New Berlin may have once been an agricultural center, but today, this is a bustling town that's proud to be home to a number of multinational corporations like the aerospace industry supplier B/E Aerospace Lighting & Integrated Systems. New Berlin is a place of innovation, of culture, and of community. It's located to the southwest of Milwaukee and nestled between a number of area lakes, making it a prime jumping off spot for weekends.

So when New Berlin residents are shopping for a vehicle, they're often looking for something that meshes with the modern look and feel of their city but also one that has the power and capabilities to take on rural Wisconsin in the winter and outdoors-oriented weekends. One great option for vehicle buyers this year is the 2018 Ram Truck 2500.

The Ram 2500 is a versatile beast of a vehicle that has something to offer just about everyone. Whether you're looking for a basic work truck capable of handling loads big and small, a comfortable people hauler that can also get dirty, or a trail conquering beast of a vehicle, the 2500 is equipped to do the job. There's a lot to talk about this vehicle but the following is a quick look at just two of this truck's most noticeable traits: Its exterior and engine offerings.


Engine Options

The most common (and base) engine offering for the 2018 2500 is a 5.7-liter V8 gasoline engine that delivers 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. This engine gets paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This entry-level engine runs on gasoline but there is also a modified version that operates on compressed natural gas and delivers the same power numbers as that gas-only V8. 

The next level up engine is a 6.4-liter V8 engine that delivers 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque that's also paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. However, the third optional engine does come with the option of a manual transmission pairing. This third engine, a turbocharged 6.7-liter diesel six cylinder, gets 350 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque when you opt for it to be matched with the six-speed manual transmission which makes for a solid off-road truck.

That said, if power is your game, pair the turbodiesel with the available reinforced six-speed automatic to enjoy the most powerful version of the 2500. This pairing gets a 370 horsepower and a whopping 800 pound-feet of torque. 


Exterior Highlights

Sure, trucks aren't exactly a vehicle you buy because it's easy on the eyes... but that doesn't mean a well-built truck can't be powerful and handsome. The 2018 Ram truck 2500 is both. This is a bold and handsome truck with an aggressive grille that sweeps back to broad shoulders that exclaim big rig. The base model is stellar, but extra exterior touches are added on each of the upper-level trims. For example, the 2018 Ram truck 2500 Laramie Longhorn trim adds a chrome mesh grille, LED bed lights, and accent-colored bumpers for an overall more handsome and assertive exterior appearance.
