Customers who want a powerful and capable heavy-duty pickup have long struggled to find a truck that places equal importance on both performance and refinement. One truck brand that has always led the pack in sophistication and capability is RAM, and the 2016 RAM 3500 will continue in the trend of offering comfort for the long haul. The 2016 model has arrived to the segment with a range of new features. The Laramie Limited trim has received a refreshed exterior to emphasize its luxurious performance. Additionally, diesel-powered 3500 trucks will benefit from new calibrations that have led to 900 pound-feet of torque!
Under the 3500's Hood
The 3500 works to maximize power at every opportunity, making it ideal for commercial workers who need plenty of support for heavy-duty hauling and towing. The customization options are nearly endless, with RAM offering single-rear-wheel (SRW) or dual-rear-wheel (DRW) configurations on any of the body styles. Rear-wheel and four-wheel drive are available, as well as three fantastic engine options. The available Cummins turbodiesel is a diesel-powered 6.7-liter turbocharged engine that has received enhancements to maximize the torque ratings, with certain configurations offering up to 900 lb-ft of torque, and 385 horsepower. The 3500 comes standard with an excellent 5.7-liter V8 engine, and RAM will offer an additional option in the form of a 6.4-liter V8. Towing and payload ratings will depend upon the chosen powertrain configuration, but when the RAM 3500 is properly equipped with the Cummins turbodiesel it can tow up to 31,210 pounds, and offer a maximum payload of 6,580 pounds.
Design of RAM 3500
When configuring a RAM 3500 the brand will offer three different cab styles, as well as a number of optional bed lengths. There are six main trim levels, and many available trim-specific packages. RAM also offers a great range of standalone features, giving customers the ability to equip luxury items on their lower trim level. Business owners will particularly like the base Tradesman trim due to its convenient features to ease in daily towing and hauling jobs. It can also be equipped with materials that can withstand the elements, like heavy-duty work grade vinyl upholstery. Drivers will likely want to equip the great Uconnect infotainment system, as it provides access to a number of apps for both safety and entertainment.
