2008 model year changes
For Dodge's 2008 heavy duty Ram Mega Cab, there's a new SXT model that provides several additional features when compared with the base ST--such as power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control, and remote keyless entry--at a price that's significantly lower than the top-of-the-line Laramie. Also, on the 2500, a 7"x10" trailer-towing mirror is now standard, and an electric-shift transfer case is now standard on 4x4 SLT and Laramie models. And when equipped with the Cummins 6.7L turbodiesel engine, which was introduced in 2007, the Ram heavy duty meets federal emissions standards for 2010, now that it's fitted with a diesel particulate filter and adsorber catalyst.
Wide range of configurations; towing and hauling ability good for hard commercial duty; available Cummins turbodiesel.
Special features for 2008
The torquey Cummins turbodiesel engine that's optional on the 2008 Dodge Ram heavy duty models makes it one of the best choices for those who have to tow the heaviest loads, such as long campers or horse trailers. Dodge also says that the standard 5.7L V8 provides best-in-class acceleration and towing capability compared with competing gasoline heavy-duty pickups.
Available in Regular or Crew Cab configurations, with either 2WD or 4WD, the 2008 Ram Truck Ram 2500 features a Base 5.7-liter V8, ABS brakes, rack-and-pinion steering and a 6-speed manual transmission with overdrive. Designed as an ultra-serious work truck, the Ram 2500 also features heavy duty front shocks and a maximum towing capacity of 9,400 pounds. In addition to plenty of power, the Ram 2500 comes equipped with a broad range of safety equipment, including front and side-head airbags, high-density discharge headlights and a low tire pressure warning.
