2012 model year changes View changes +

The biggest news for Ram's heavy duty line in 2012 is the addition of a new 6-speed automatic transmission, paired with the 5.7L Hemi V8, which replaces the previous model years' 5-speed unit. The new transmission is stronger than the outgoing gearbox, and it features both lower first and higher final gear ratios. Rambox storage is now available across all models, and electronic stability control is now standard on single rear wheel trucks. Inside, a new steering wheel has been fitted, and a trailer brake controller is now standard on SLT, Outdoorsman, Power Wagon, Laramie and Laramie Longhorn.

Special features for 2012 View special features +

The Ram 2500 and 3500 are heavy-duty trucks that sacrifice some ride quality and maneuverability, compared to lighter-duty pickups, in favor of improved towing and hauling ability. The heavy-duty Ram models are, like rival models from Chevrolet, GMC and Ford, far more luxurious and comfortable than their predecessors, even as they haven't given up any serious work ability. Entertainment and connectivity features abound and hint that these trucks see use well beyond the construction site. Ram says that the 2500 and 3500 are the first in their segment to offer an available 10-speaker surround-sound system, as well as a number of other premium options such as Sirius Backseat TV.
