The Ram 3500: Rugged Construction, Heavy-Duty Capability

The second entry into Ram's heavy-duty lineup, the Ram 3500 expands upon the capabilities of the Ram 2500 with one key difference: it allows for a dual rear axle (dually) configuration, resulting in significantly greater towing and hauling capabilities. With multiple trims and configurations available, the Ram 3500 confidently outstrips the competition - satisfying families who need the heavy-duty capabilities for towing RVs, boats or trailers while retaining interior luxury and a commendable degree of technology and modern convenience features, in addition to hard-working contractors and drivers utilizing this brawny truck for commercial applications. Boasting a diesel powertrain option and a variety of class-exclusive and best-in-class accolades, the Ram 3500 remains an ideal option for drivers seeking heavy-duty performance without compromise.

Power, Performance and Capabilities

The Ram 3500 offers two monstrous powertrains - one gas, one diesel. The Gasoline-powered heavy-duty 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 exerts best-in-class 410 horsepower and an impressive 429 pound-feet of torque, resulting in a maximum towing capacity of 16,480 pounds, and a maximum payload capacity of 7,350 pounds - more than enough to tow boats, trailers, and cargo in the heavy-duty cargo bed. The legendary 6.7-liter Cummins® turbo diesel in-line six cylinder engine, however, is offered with an advanced AISIN six-speed automatic transmission that optimizes the incredible 930 pound-feet of torque and 385 horsepower for a best-in-class fifth-wheel towing capacity of 30,000 pounds! Hauling up to 6,720 pounds in the cargo bed, and towing a maximum of 31,210 pounds in its typical configuration, the diesel-equipped Ram 3500 confidently out-performs its contemporaries.

Interior Design and Available Trim Levels

Offering driver six available models, the Ram 3500 provides either straightforward, affordable and utilitarian configurations, or a more luxurious and equipped ride with its top trims. The base trim Tradesman® comes fitted with vinyl interior upholstery, a standard ParkView® rear backup camera, and all the necessary equipment to get the job done. For drivers seeking an addition degree of style, the SLT trim includes some additional interior and exterior styling points to better integrate this brawny truck on the road. For drivers who desire more luxury as they work, the Big Horn, Laramie, and Laramie Longhorn® trims offer incrementally greater degrees of luxury and convenience features. Topping off the lineup, however, is the graceful Limited edition - attentively styled with bold chrome exterior appointments, and fitted with the latest in Ram technology, this trim suits drivers unwilling to compromise on either ruggedness or refinement.

Ergonomically crafted to accommodate drivers without detracting from available interior cargo space, the Ram 3500 offers a variety of upholstery materials and cab configurations to suit a range of driving styles and preferences. Versatile, comfortable and convenient, the interior of the Ram 3500 is as reminiscent of a heavy-duty work truck as it is a comfortable luxury SUV.

Features and Technology

Boasting an available largest-in-class 8.4-inch touchscreen alongside the advanced and intuitive Uconnect® 4C NAV system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, drivers receive the utmost in modern convenience technology. Harnessing the abilities of both your smartphone and your truck, the Uconnect® systems offered seamlessly integrate your truck into any modern lifestyle. With easily accessible available upfitter switches for easy modification, built-in rear under-seat storage and electronic range select to conveniently toggle between gears, the features available for the Ram 3500 are both convenient and easy to use.
