2010 Dodge Ram Review

Updated on February 16, 2011

Dodge trucks have long been recognized for power and performance. While gasoline models of the half-ton Dodge Ram are available, many people favor the additional power of the Cummins Turbo diesel engine that Dodge is known for. The powerful engine combined with impressive towing and hauling capabilities make the Dodge Ram 2500 an ideal work truck for commercial operations as well as farming ventures.

The 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 is designed to handle well both off-road and on the highway. The added comfort of the Mega Cab means a roomy backseat for additional passengers. In 2010, the Dodge Ram was redesigned for added comfort and style. Additional features were added to the sound system and navigation. A roomier Crew Cab model was also added to allow for additional back seat leg room.

Changes to the Dodge Ram 2500 came after a series of bad news for Chrysler. Following a decline of sales for car and truck models across the board, the company filed for bankruptcy. However, in 2010, many existing truck and SUV models were updated, with hopes of bringing the company back from the verge of nonexistence. The Dodge Ram 2500 is a prime example of the company’s innovative efforts to offer consumers something different.

While the improvements to the interior of the Dodge Ram 2500 give existing Dodge truck customers something to look forward to, it is still the power and performance of this truck that is the  most appealing to truck buyers. The towing package that comes standard on the Dodge Ram 2500 is perhaps one of the truck’s most prolific strong points. With a maximum towing capacity of 13,450 pounds, the 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 is a workhorse that leaves other three-quarter ton trucks in the dust. Payload tops out at 3,160 pounds, when properly equipped. 

Competition is often fierce between the Dodge Ram 2500 and similar heavy duty trucks on the market. Specifically, the Ford F-250 and the Chevy Silverado 2500 provide quite a bit of comparison in terms of power and performance. However, the upgraded interior and added styling options of the 2010 Ram give Dodge that added edge that it has not had in years past. With rising fuel costs, the added fuel efficiency of the high-powered diesel engine also give truck buyers another alternative to gasoline-powered fuel hogs that can break the bank.

The 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 comes in regular cab, crew cab, and Mega Cab options. Each cab option is available with a variety of trim packages, beginning with the ST. The Laramie trim package is considered the top-of-the-line for Dodge trucks, but additional options and packages are available for all models.
