2014 Ram Heavy Duty Gets All-New 410 horsepower 6.4-liter HEMI V-8

2014 Ram Heavy Duty line of pickup trucks gets the all-new 410 horsepower 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 engine along with the standard 383 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 and available 385 horsepower 6.7-liter Cummins High-Output Turbo Diesel engines. The 2014 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty starts at $30,695 (including $1,095 destination) with the new 6.4-liter HEMI option priced $1,495 greater than similarly equipped 5.7-liter HEMI-powered Ram. Beginning in the 2014 model year, the Ram 2500 will offer a range of new 18- and 20-inch wheels, a cargo-view camera, a flat-load floor option with fold-out panels that create a flat surface across the floor of the rear seating area and a rear air suspension system where an air bag replaces the coil spring much like the Ram 1500. Start of production of the 2014 Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty is scheduled for the third quarter of 2013 at the Saltillo Truck Assembly Plant in Coahuila, Mexico.
