Design of RAM 2500
The RAM 2500 is known for superior riding and smooth handling which is helped along by rear suspension options including either a five link coil system or an air suspension. The link system allows for maximum articulation when negotiating obstacles and can tow upwards of 17,980 pounds which is best-in-class. The air suspension uses an air bag instead of springs and the towing ability does not change. Another great thing about the air suspension is that it is capable of sensing the load you may have attached and the air bag opens up and expands until ride height is achieved and the truck has better ability to tow and not drag the payload. There is also a camera that the driver can use to monitor the truck bed and with a press of a button can switch between that and the backup camera if applicable. Giving additional help while connecting and disconnecting a trailer is the new truck bed system that has lights as well as "hitch 'n go" towing ability.
