You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Overview

In sports cars, the arms race revolves around horsepower. Over on the utility side, the currency is torque – and the market has a new titan. The 2019 Ram 3500 debuts with a new Cummins diesel engine that puts it atop the class for raw power. For now, anyway.

What's New for 2019

The Ram 3500 gets a full redesign for 2019.

RAM 3500

Choosing Your RAM 3500

As usual, choosing a pickup truck begins with body and bed. The 3500 offers two options for both: regular (single-row) cab or crew cab, paired with either a 6-foot-4-inch bed or an 8-footer. The regular cab is only available on the lowest two trims and only with the longer box.

Upgrading to the crew cab costs around $4,000, but this varies by trim. With the crew cab, jumping from the short box to the long box costs just $200. The exception is the top Limited trim, where the shorter box is inexplicably $300 more expensive. Deleting the box is also an option, and Ram will take $400 off the price.

Next up is engine choice. The base engine is Ram’s 6.4-liter V8, which delivers 370 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. This engine routes power through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

From there, Ram offers the 6.7-liter diesel engine in two variants. The first offers 370 hp and 850 lb-ft at a price of $9,100. If that’s still not enough, Ram will put in a higher tune for $11,795 over starting price. This is the engine the brand is bragging about, with 400 hp and an astonishing 1,000 lb-ft of torque. Both diesel powerplants use a six-speed automatic transmission.

All-wheel drive is available with any engine. It’s a $2,800 upgrade with the regular cab, or $2,900 with the crew cab. The towing numbers are as impressive as expected. Towing capacity starts at just over 14,000 pounds, but properly equipped, the Ram 3500 is rated for up to 35,100 pounds.

A few mechanical options are available on all trims. These include a 4.10 axle ratio ($145) for extra pulling power, a 20,000- or 30,000-pound fifth-wheel hitch ($1,075 or $1,495, respectively), an auto-leveling rear suspension ($1,595), a variety of high-amp alternators, tow hooks ($100), clearance lights ($95), LED bed lighting ($165), and a trifold tonneau cover ($695). Adding dual rear wheels is another $1,295 extra.

Two tow packages are also available across the line. The first is the fifth-wheel/Gooseneck Prep Group ($445), which is Ram’s charge for adding the requisite holes and wiring. The other is the Max Tow Package ($3,695), which includes the 4.10 axle ratio, auto-leveling rear suspension, 30,000-pound fifth-wheel setup, trailer brake control, and a roadside safety kit.

The rest of the features are divided across five trims:

RAM 3500

Tradesman

The workhorse of the lineup, the Tradesman is the cheapest of the lot at $36,540 to start (all prices include the $1,695 destination charge). Cheap it may be, but the Tradesman is actually the strongest of the lineup on paper – with the high-output turbo engine, it owns both the max tow rating (35,100 pounds) and the max payload (7,680 pounds).

It’s fairly basic otherwise. The seats are vinyl, the exterior is simple, and the wheels are steel 18-inchers. Infotainment is equally spartan, with a 5-inch touchscreen, Ram’s Uconnect system, and just four speakers. Still, Ram does include Bluetooth and a couple USB charging ports.

Ram gets elaborate with its package options, so take a deep breath. Bundles start with two equipment groups. The Tradesman Level 1 Equipment Group ($895) gets you heated side mirrors with turn signals and courtesy lights, an overhead console and light, power trailer-tow mirrors, power front windows, keyless entry, chrome interior door handles, and nicer door trim. The Tradesman Level 2 Equipment Group ($995) adds all of the above plus cloth seats, floor carpeting, a sliding rear window, satellite radio, and rubber floor mats.

On the exterior, a Chrome Appearance Group ($995) blings out the bumpers, grille, and wheels. The Bed Utility Group ($695) buys a deployable bed step, LED bed lighting, and a spray-in bedliner.

The Safety Group ($2,195) adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, rain-sensitive windshield wipers, automatic high beams, LED headlights and taillights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with wheel-mounted controls, a 7-inch driver information display, and power side mirrors with courtesy lights and turn signals.

Finally, the Cold Weather Group ($145) adds an engine block heater and a winter grille cover, and the Roadside Safety Kit ($195) includes a variety of bright-colored safety gear.

Only white and red are no-cost exterior colors – anything else costs at least $100. A sliding rear window is available on its own for $195, and tubular side steps may be added for $395 (or $495 with chrome). The spray-in bedliner is a $495 option.

On the interior, cloth seats are an option for $95, along with a single-disc CD player ($345), a six-speaker audio system ($100), a rear window defroster ($195), panel-mounted auxiliary switches ($145), and a 115-volt outlet ($150).

On the safety front, trailer brake control is $295, blind-spot monitors are $995, and rear parking assist is $295.

RAM 3500

Big Horn

Moving up a step, the Big Horn starts at $40,890. It comes with heated side mirrors, cloth seats, keyless entry, trailer brake control, and a variety of chrome accents.

At this trim, the Level 1 Equipment Group ($1,995) adds aluminum wheels, an 8.4-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a premium bench seat, fog lights, dual glove boxes, extra courtesy lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, power-adjustable pedals, power-folding mirrors, a sliding rear window, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, vanity mirrors, a universal garage opener, and satellite radio. The Level 2 Equipment Group ($4,195) includes all of the above plus a 7-inch driver display, a soft-open tailgate, front and rear parking assist, remote start, and a security alarm.

The Cold Weather Group, Bed Utility Group, Safety Group, and Roadside Safety Kit all remain in place. Two new packages join them. First is a Sport Appearance Group ($895) with body-color handles and grille surrounds, painted bumpers, front and rear parking assist, and black interior accents. Finally, the aptly named Heated Seats and Wheel Group ($445) adds heating elements to the front seats and a leather-wrapped wheel.

On this trim, cloth bucket seats are an option for $295. The 8.4-inch touchscreen is available for $795, and a premium sound system is $295. Remote start is $295, the security alarm is $195, and parking assist is available for either $295 (rear) or $395 (front and rear). Other standalone options remain the same as on the Tradesman.

RAM 3500

Laramie

The middle child of the lineup, the Laramie starts at $52,245. Along with unique exterior accents, it includes leather-trimmed seats, 10-way power adjustable heated front seats, front and rear parking assist, the 8.4-inch touchscreen, the soft-open tailgate, and chrome heated and power-folding side mirrors. This trim is only available with a crew cab, and the Max Tow package isn’t available.

The Laramie’s Level 1 Equipment Group ($1,600) buys second-row storage bins, automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, power-adjustable pedals, rain-sensitive wipers, a remote tailgate release, a single-disc CD player, ventilated front seats, and memory settings for the radio, driver’s seat, mirrors, and pedals. The Level 2 Equipment Group ($3,995) includes all of the above plus Harman Kardon sound, an easy-access touchscreen, navigation, HD radio, heated second-row seats, extra USB charging ports, rain-sensitive wipers, wireless charging, and XM traffic reports.

The Laramie gets three appearance packages. The Sport Appearance Package is still available, along with a new Chrome Appearance Group ($995 to chromify the belt molding, side steps, and tow hooks) and a Black Appearance Package ($2,295 to add 20-inch wheels and blacken the entire exterior).

The Cold Weather Group, Bed Utility Group, Safety Group, and Roadside Safety Kit remain in place. A RamBox Utility Group ($295) adds a bed divider and four tie-down hooks. Finally, a Towing Technology Group ($1,095) adds blind-spot monitoring, a cargo light with cargo-view camera, a surround-view camera, and a trailer reverse guidance system.

A cargo management system is $995, and power-deploying running boards are $995. Navigation is $795, and a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen is available for $1,295. A power sunroof is $1,095. Where non-standard, other standalone options remain the same.

RAM 3500

Laramie Longhorn

Tipping toward the luxury end, the Laramie Longhorn starts at $59,545. The details are classy, including barnwood accents, leather seating, two-tone exterior paint and wheels, directional LED headlights, chrome side steps, a spray-in bedliner, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen with navigation. This trim is only available with the crew cab, and the Max Tow package is available.

Most features are standard at this trim, so there’s only one equipment group. The Level 1 Equipment Group ($3,495) includes the 12-inch touchscreen, Harman Kardon sound, blind-spot monitoring, power running boards, wireless charging, and satellite radio. Other available packages are the Cold Weather Group, RamBox Utility Group, Towing Technology Group, Safety Group (here just $1,195), and Roadside Safety Kit.

The cargo light with cargo-view camera is $345 on its own, and a deployable bed step is $365. Other options remain the same.

RAM 3500

Limited

To cap it all off, the range-topping Limited trim starts at $67,685. For the price, Ram adds the 12-inch touchscreen, Harman Kardon sound, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, satellite radio, a surround-view camera, power running boards, 20-inch aluminum and chrome wheels, and exclusive interior trim. All the features in the Towing Technology Group are standard as well. The Limited only comes in a crew cab, but the Max Tow package is back on the table.

With most features standard, the only remaining packages are the Cold Weather Group, the Roadside Safety Kit, and a Body-Color Bumper Group ($395), which does exactly what it promises. Where non-standard, other standalone options remain the same.

CarsDirect Tip

Although higher trims are increasingly cabin-friendly, the 2020 Ram 3500’s size and thirstiness mean that it'll never double as a commuter. Better value lives in the lower end of the range – the Tradesman is the most capable truck in the lineup, and it can look the part with judicious option selection.
