The heavy-duty truck market is fundamentally different from light (half-ton) trucks. Where light trucks are frequently purchased as daily transportation as well as for recreational uses, a heavy-duty pickup is more often purchased for business use. This means that the features and specs of heavy trucks are generally more oriented towards towing and hauling, with comparatively less emphasis placed on luxury.
The 2019 Ram 2500 HD and 3500 HD trucks could change all that. Sure, they’re equipped with powerful engines and utterly bulletproof transmissions designed to tow up to 35,100 pounds, but the latest generation Ram also includes top-tier luxury, an insanely quiet cabin, and all the advanced safety and connectivity tech you can find in any luxury car. And the best part of the new Ram HD line is that it barely costs more than the 2019 Ram 1500 half-ton at the low end, so if you’re shopping for a personal truck but you have professional-level power needs, this truck is a great choice. Read on to find out why.
