Ram Trucks for sale Fox Lake

Hardworking Americans need trucks that work as hard as they do–that’s why the Ram 2500 Tradesman pickup is one of the best-selling trucks in the nation. Ram dealerships can barely keep these muscular workhorse vehicles available on their lots thanks to the truck’s superior reliability, flexible capabilities and no-frills approach to getting the job done.

Although the Ram 2500 pickup is available in a range of eight different configurations, the Tradesman is the truck we recommend most to people who are looking for a vehicle that can handle a variety of challenges without costing a small fortune.

While the Ram 2500 Tradesman is capable of towing up to 17,980 pounds when equipped with a 6.4-liter Hemi engine and has a payload of 3,160, it costs just under $35,000. It’s perfect for everyday tasks and its emphasis on a streamlined interior free from unnecessary bells and whistles keeps the cost down so that it remains affordable for the everyday man or woman. (That’s not to say that the Tradesman is totally free of fun features–the truck comes with Bluetooth functionality, SiriusXM radio and a six-speaker audio system.)

Of course, the Ram 2500 Tradesman is also available with a more intense Cummins diesel engine for those that require a little more power. The diesel engine adds $2,500 to the truck’s price tag but it also allows drivers to tow over 17,900 pounds. Ask any tech at any Ram service center near you–these engines are some of the best around.

Additional upgrades are available to suit just about anyone’s needs. There’s even an optional Chrome Appearance Package for those who want to add a little bit of extra attitude to their new Tradesman. The package adds chrome bumpers and pops on a set of shiny chrome wheels that are sure to turn your whole crew green with jealousy. If that’s not your style, the Tradesman’s basic exterior styling is perfectly suitable for drivers who prefer a more understated approach. The truck is outfitted with black front and rear bumpers, a sleek black grille, quad-lens halogen headlamps, incandescent tail lamps, and black door handles.

Ram recognizes that for many drivers, a truck’s safety features are every bit as important as its towing and hauling capabilities. That’s why the 2500 Tradesman is available with anti-lock brakes, stability control, front-impact airbags, side-impact airbags, overhead airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and a state-of-the-art security system equipped with an ignition disable device that prevents the truck from starting if the correct key isn’t used.
