Under the 3500’s Hood

The standard engine for the 3500 is a 5.7-liter V8 gasoline setup that puts out 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. There is an available natural gas version of this engine that will give you identical horsepower and torque numbers. You can order the RAM 3500 in either rear-wheel drive or part-time four-wheel drive. Two other engines are available for 2017. First is a 6.4-liter V8 that produces 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque. Next is the diesel version of the RAM 3500. It gets its power from a turbocharged 6.7-liter diesel six-cylinder and puts out 350 hp and 660 lb-ft when paired with a six-speed manual transmission. When using a six-speed automatic, the diesel gets 370 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. If you are concerned about ability, you needn’t be. The 3500 has more than enough muscle, and a bold and rugged appearance to match its skill. Towing with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 comes in at 13,900 pounds and when equipped with the larger 6.4-liter V8 you will get a class-leading 16,320 pounds. The Cummins turbodiesel model can pull an whopping 31,210 pounds.

Design of RAM 3500

There is a long list of possible configurations for the 3500 when you take into account all of the different cabin sizes, bed lengths, powertrains, and trim levels. There are six trim levels – the Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn/Lone Star, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. You can get a powerful, yet basic work truck with the Tradesman model, and go all the way up to a luxury-appointed pickup with the Laramie and Limited models. Cab styles include a two-door regular cab, a four-door crew cab, and a four-door jumbo crew cab called Mega Cab. The regular cab uses an 8-foot bed only. The crew cab has either the long bed or a short bed. The Mega Cab has an even bigger cabin with the short bed.
