In all the media advertisement on the contempo 50th ceremony of America putting a man on the moon, I abhorrence one arresting actuality went unreported. If I’m not mistaken, appropriate afterwards declaring, “That’s one baby footfall for man . . .,” Neil Armstrong looked bottomward to apple from the lunar apparent and exclaimed, “Hey, ain’t that a Ram Mega Cab?!!”
Yep, acceptance this barter is big abundant to be apparent from space.
With the 2019 Ram 2500 Mega Cab 4×4 about 7 anxiety wide, over 6-and-a-half anxiety alpine and addition about 21 anxiety long, you don’t charge a driver’s authorization for this thing, you charge a array permit.
The anew minted 2019 Ram HD, in all its iterations, is a purpose-built apparatus advised to haul, tow, cull and carry. The actuality that, depending on trim, it can do it all while bestowing affluence on its occupants in no way diminishes its admeasurement or muscle.
Speaking of which, that muscle, in 3500 models, can ability an alarming 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque abaft the accessible High Output Cummins turbo agent — balance that, abbreviate of 18 wheels, was exceptional of afore this guy arrived. Meanwhile, this truck, accessible in 2500 and 3500 HD models, offers added flavors than Baskin Robbins, anniversary cutting its own exoteric cues and autogenous decor.
Specifically, there’s Tradesman (the alive annealed of the family), Big Horn (it’s alleged “Lone Star” in Texas, pardner), Ability Wagon (the off-roader), Laramie (western elegance), Laramie Longhorn (westernier elegance) and Limited (just elegant).
Throw in choices of 2WD or 4WD; gasoline or agent power; 6.5- or 8.0-foot beds; and regular, Crew or Mega Cab anatomy configurations, and you can see there are added versions of this affair than there are covers of “Yesterday.”

We collection a 2019 Ram 2500 Big Horn Mega Cab 4×4 powered by the Standard Output Cummins straight-six turbo diesel, so we’ll apply on that.
Oh, we should agenda the above High Output diesel, with its 1,000 lb.-ft. of grunt, is accessible alone in the 3500. However, no slouch is the Standard Output Cummins we had, with its 370 hp and 850 lb.-ft. Capable of towing added than eight tons, few buyers will crave added muscle.
For those who adopt gasoline power, a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8, bearing 410 hp and 429 lb.-ft. of torque, additionally can be had. That agent is managed by an eight-speed automatic, the agent gets a six-speed.
In 200 afar — almost 60 percent city/40 percent hwy — we accomplished 17 mpg from our Standard Output agent 4×4.
The active acquaintance is appreciably serene on the interstate, area this guy is in his accustomed habitat. At 70 mph, the berth is quiet, the ride close but never punishing, and the own-the-road aplomb is over the top. This is a artery cruiser par excellence, and a aces accompaniment in towing a massive fifth-wheel biking trailer.
In town, on the added hand, the big guy is awkward. At the supermarket, we pulled through to the abutting amplitude and still active a third of the parking amplitude abaft us.
Unsurprisingly, allowance in our Mega Cab was cavernous. Six adults can advance out. However, if alone two association are up front, the center-back of the advanced bench bankrupt in our Big Horn for a big armrest and accumulator bin.
But, admitting autogenous luxuries — Uconnect infotainment, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay talent, dual-zone climate, acrimonious seats and added in our rig — this tow-monster never forgets it’s a truck. Big knobs for radio and altitude can be manipulated with gloved easily while countless accumulator options are provided.

Really, our alone squawks were abridgement of a telescoping caster (it does tilt) and, admitting push-button start, no adjacency locking and unlocking. (Hey, what use is accessible keyless alpha back you’ve still got to angle out the key fob anyhow to alleviate the doors?)
This barter in Big Horn trim is space-cowboy chichi with a almighty assignment ethic. It’s no driver vehicle, but if you charge what it can do, it can do what you need. In style.
