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

Overview

What's New

The 2020 Ram 3500 enters its second year in the current form with detail changes only. Crew Cabs equipped with the 8-foot bed are now eligible for a 50-gallon fuel tank.

The Big Horn and Laramie can get a new Night Edition appearance package.

Choosing Your Ram 3500

The Ram 3500 is available in five trims level: Tradesman, Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. Pricing starts at $36,890 including destination for the base Tradesman and ramps up to $64,495 for the Limited.

Three cab styles are available: Regular, Crew, and Mega. The Crew Cab is standard on the Laramie and above. The Mega Cab is optional on all trims except the Tradesman.

Engine Choices

The Ram 3500 starts out with a gasoline V8 engine. The optional Cummins turbodiesel V8 comes in standard- and high-output versions, priced at $9,100 and $11,795, respectively.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueMax Towing
6.4L V8410 hp429 lb-ft18,210 pounds
6.7L Turbodiesel V8370 hp850 lb-ft22,670 pounds
6.7L Turbodiesel V8400 hp1,000 lb-ft35,100 pounds

The gas V8 is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The standard-output turbodiesel gets a six-speed automatic, and the high-output version uses a heavy-duty six-speed AISIN automatic.

Four-wheel drive is available with all engines for $2,800 on the Regular Cab and $2,900 on Crew Cabs. The Max-Tow Package ($3,695) adds an auto-leveling rear air suspension, a revised axle ratio, a trailer brake controls, and 5th wheel connection hardware. Dual rear wheels are available from $895 to $1,395, depending on the trim.

Heavy-duty vehicles like the Ram 3500 are exempt from EPA mileage testing.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Regular Cab seats three passengers, and the Crew and Mega Crew can accommodate up to six. The Mega Cab offers significantly more storage space and rear legroom than the Crew.

The Regular Cab is paired with an 8-foot bed. The Crew Cab comes standard with a 6-foot-4-inch bed, while an 8-footer is optional. The Mega Cab comes with a shorter bed only.

The 8-foot bed offers 74.7 cubic feet of cargo volume with the Regular Cab or 74.9 with the Crew Cab, while the 6-foot-4-incher can hold up to 57.5.

Safety Features

The Ram 3500 is meant to be highly configurable, so standard safety technology is limited to a rearview camera. Everything else is bundled into option packages.

The Safety Group for the Tradesman and Big Horn ($2,095) adds blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, and more.

Front and rear parking sensors come standard starting on the Laramie. The Safety Group for the Laramie and Laramie Longhorn ($1,495) has all the features mentioned above, minus what comes standard at these levels, plus lane-keeping assist and adaptive steering. A surround-view camera is available on the Laramie and Laramie Longhorn as part of the Towing Technology Group ($1,095 or $995).

The Limited gains standard blind-spot monitoring and automatic high beams, and nearly everything else is available in scaled-down Safety Group costing $1,095. Adaptive cruise control and the surround-view camera are available in the Limited's Level 1 Equipment Group ($3,440), which also furnishes the Safety Group content.

Connectivity

The standard Uconnect 3 infotainment system features a 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, two USB ports. You have to move up to the Laramie to get an 8.4-inch display with UConnect 4, which brings Apple Car Play and Android Auto. Navigation becomes standard starting on the Laramie Longhorn, while the Limited adds a 12-inch touchscreen.

For $795 on the Tradesman and Big Horn, buyers can equip the upgraded infotainment system. Navigation is a $795 option on regular Laramie.

The top choice is Unconnect 12.0, which carries a 12-inch touchscreen along with navigation. Unconnect 12.0 is a standalone option on the Laramie ($1,995) and included the Laramie Longhorn's Level 1 Equipment Group ($3,595). It's standard on the Limited.
