With three engines, how are they different from each other?

Just so we know what we are talking about here, there is a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with VVT, Heavy-Duty 6.4L HEMI V8, and a 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 engine as possibilities under the hood. For transmissions, you'll find a standout available 6-speed manual transmission specifically with the 6.7-L diesel engine that incorporates a wear-compensating clutch. The turbo diesel engine also utilizes smart diesel exhaust engine braking technology to further allow drivers control on downhill braking levels. Otherwise, there is a six-speed automatic transmission for all engines installed as standard. With the top mix of transmission and engine, the turbo diesel can tow up to 17,980-pounds, gets 800 lb.-ft. of torque, 370-hp, and a payload capacity of 3,160-lbs. The 6.4-L gas engine can tow up to 16,320-pounds, brings 429 lb.-ft. of torque, generates 410-hp, and a payload capacity of 3,990-lbs. The 5.7-L can tow up to 13,890-pounds, churns 400 lb.-ft. of torque, 383-hp, and a payload potential of 3,060-lbs. Your choice of either a tested 5-link coil system or an equally supportive air suspension system.

There's a lot of trucks out there, what makes this one stand out in design?

Depending on the model, there is a Regular Cab with an 8-foot bed, a Crew Cab with either a 6-foot 4-inch bed or an 8-foot bed, and lastly a Mega Cab with the 6-foot 4-inch bed. You should realize that Ram doesn't skimp on essentials either, such as having a 50,000-PSI steel frame with additional crossmembers as a matter of course, as well as available Ram Work Grade vinyl seating so it can maintain cleanliness much easier than fabric upholstery. The truck bed can have a whole host of available items, such as a handy divider/extender, LED bed lights (with a remote exterior switch), a cargo-view camera, and a locking/draining Rambox that doesn't eat up important space. On the inside there are 8.4-inch HD Radios with 4G LTE, USB Flip, Android Auto/Apple Car Play, pinch to zoom, and bolstered resolution since previous versions. It should be noted here as well that the 2018 Ram 2500 has things like Sirius Guardian with SOS, Assist, Remote Services, Send and Go and Vehicle Finder as well as now standard on all 2500 models a rear backup exterior camera. Look down while driving for a second and you'll find the full-color 7-inch instrument cluster with a few essentials that are able to be easily seen like a fuel gauge, speedometer, and a tachometer. The 2018 Ram 2500 also can access a Fleet Telematics Module for truck tracking ease. The Crew Cab style has standard under-seat storage compartments and in-floor storage bins in the back. Don't miss the Limited editions made for the 2500 in 2018, such as the Limited Tungsten, Southfork, and Harvest editions.
