Capability and Handling for Monroe Ram Fans
The backbone of the 2012 Ram Heavy Duty pickup is a hydro-formed, fully boxed frame with advanced torsional rigidity and stiffness. A coil-spring suspension setup is used in the front of the vehicle, while the multi-leaf spring design is maintained in the rear for heavy-duty capability. Front and rear shocks and springs are tuned for optimum ride quality and capability.
Suspension upgrades and larger front-axle U-joints, combined with increased front gross axle weight rating (GAWR), result in increased front-weight carrying capability—a must for larger snowplows.
Towing capability is a strong suit of the new 2012 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups, with a standard exhaust brake (diesel-equipped models). This feature reduces brake fade, prolongs brake life and provides confidence and safety when hauling heavy loads on downhill grades. Large front (360 mm) and rear (358 mm) brakes with integrated Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) increase brake life and braking stability.
For 2012, SLT, Outdoorsman, Power Wagon and Laramie and Laramie Longhorn models feature a standard integrated trailer brake control to provide better driver control in towing situations. Trailer brake control information is conveniently displayed in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), which is standard on all models.
Bold Exterior Design of the 2012 Ram 2500
At our Ram dealer near Monroe, Ram Heavy Duty pickups carve out a unique design with styling differentiated from the Ram light-duty lineup.
To accommodate cooling requirements of the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine (perennially the most popular power plant in the Ram Heavy Duty lineup with a take-rate of 84% percent), the Ram Heavy-Duty grille opening is larger than the light-duty grille. The larger grille incorporates a taller hood that includes louvers on each side. Access to the front winch (on Power Wagon models) and tow hooks led to a unique front-bumper design.
The Ram Heavy Duty grille includes a chromed surround with either black center billets (ST, SLT, Outdoorsman and Power Wagon models) or chromed center billets (Laramie and Laramie Longhorn models and Big Horn and Lone Star editions). The grille is body-mounted, while the bumper is frame-mounted.
With the 2012 Ram 2500 at our Washington Ram dealer, front and rear doors follow the style pioneered by the Ram 1500–a design that places the door cut to the side of the truck, rather than into the roof, in order to reduce wind noise and weight. The dual-rear-wheel fenders (3500 dually only) are integrated into the box stamping and offer a smooth aerodynamic appearance.
The tailgate is sculpted for air flow, incorporating a spoiler in the upper part of the sheet metal. This tailgate also accommodates an available back-up camera for convenient trailer hook-ups and includes a lift-assist feature that makes raising and lowering a one-hand operation. Standard bedrail protection is included with both the 6-foot, 4-inch and 8-foot cargo boxes. The boxes feature bedrail caps that protect sheet metal from dents and scratching.
