Other RAM 2500 Highlights

The RAM 2500 offers Jacksonville and Chatham drivers access to best-in-class gasoline-powered towing capacity and some truly incredible diesel towing specs thanks to the Ram EcoDiesel. The five-link coil rear suspension uses proprietary spring technology to reduce overall friction for a smoother ride and reduced wear on the vehicle’s essential systems.
