What's new

The big news (literally) for 2005 is the new Power Wagon, which features class-exclusive electric locking front and rear differentials, and an electronic disconnecting front sway bar. Other Power Wagon extras include 33-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires, a 12,000-pound winch, a two-inch taller stance and a unique suspension. Other changes for the Ram 2500 this year include an even more powerful version of the Cummins turbodiesel engine, now rated at a whopping 610 lb-ft of torque, and the availability of a power sunroof and Sirius Satellite Radio on Quad Cabs.
