    2017 RAM 3500 OVERVIEW

    The RAM 3500 heavy-duty pickup is the most powerful in the family. Properly equipped, the 3500 is capable of carrying up to 7,390 pounds and towing up to an astonishing 31,210 pounds. That massive capability sums this truck up in a nutshell: work. Accessories and options can dress up this beast to near yacht-like levels of luxury, but the RAM 3500 is more suited for hauling an actual yacht.

    Like all good work vehicles, the RAM 3500 can be ordered upfit and ready to work. The factory offers snowplows, toolboxes, and service capsules. Graphics packages are also available, another welcome business vehicle option.

    What's New for 2017

    The 6.4-liter V8 is now standard on the Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. Laramie Longhorn and Limited models with four-wheel drive receive Bilstein monotube shocks.

    Choosing Your RAM 3500

    The 3500 is best thought of in terms of capability: it’s offered with three engine choices, three cab sizes, and two bed lengths. Comfort and convenience can be had at almost any level from plain to plush. Special editions may also be offered in your area, such as the impressive Lonestar edition in Texas.

    The heart of the RAM 3500 is the engine. The standard 5.7-liter V8 produces 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The available 6.4-liter V8 is good for 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. Both are matched to a six-speed automatic transmission.

    The 3500’s party piece, that elephantine towing capability, resides in the 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel six-cylinder. It comes mated to a heavy-duty six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. Dual rear wheels are optional with this engine.

    Three cab sizes are available: regular, crew, and an extended crew cab called the mega cab. Regular cabs are available on Tradesman and SLT models only. The Tradesman model does not offer the mega cab.

    The 3500 is available in six trim levels:

    Tradesman

    Comes with an all-vinyl interior, a bench seat, black exterior trim, 17-inch steel wheels, and a six-speaker sound system. Options include power heated mirrors, cruise control, and air conditioning.

    SLT

    Adds chrome trim to the bumpers and grille, 18-inch wheels, a 5-inch touchscreen display, Bluetooth, a power sliding rear window, keyless entry, power window and locks, and a trailer brake controller.

    Big Horn

    Builds on the SLT with additional chrome trim, polished forged aluminum wheels, fog lights, a limited-slip rear differential, power driver seat, and RAM's Uconnect infotainment interface.

    Laramie

    Gets leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats with passenger power, a heated steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors, rain-sensing wipers, automatic high-beam control, and a premium 10-speaker audio system. The backup camera provides a view of the cargo bed.

    Laramie Longhorn

    Takes it to the next level with color-keyed bumpers, LED bed accents, front bucket seats, heated rear seats, power-adjustable pedals, remote start, navigation, and HD radio.

    Limited

    Carries accent color running boards, chrome side steps, a premium front console, and upgraded trim throughout.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Before shopping for a 3500, decide what capabilities you need. With so many options available, it’s easy to build a truck that suits your needs precisely without going over budget. It’s also easy to exceed your budget (or throw it out the window completely) and build a truck that's capable of things it will never do.
