Packed with power, plus the latest in technological gadgets and hookups, this heavy-duty truck will take you from point A to B with up to 30,000 lbs of towed cargo!

Under the 3500's Hood

When you need a truck capable of hauling large loads, you want the 2017 RAM 3500's stability and payload capacity backing you up. The 2017 RAM 3500 is available in six unique trim levels; the no-frills Tradesman, the chrome-accented SLT, the Big Horn/Long Horn* (*only available in Texas), the tech-loaded Laramie, upgraded Laramie Longhorn and the top-of-the-line Limited trim. Standard on the Tradesman, SLT and Big Horn/Longhorn models, the 5.7-liter V8 engine generates 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. A compressed natural gas version of this engine is available and produces identical power figures. There are two optional engines, the first of which is standard on the Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited models. The first optional engine is a 6.4-liter V8 engine that produces 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque with a six-speed automatic transmission. The second optional engine is a turbocharged 6.7-liter diesel six-cylinder engine that produces 350 horsepower and 660 lb-ft of torque paired with a six-speed manual transmission and 370 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque when matched to the available six-speed automatic transmission. If that's still not enough power for you, pair the 6.7-liter V8 with the heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission and generate a whopping 385 hp and 900 lb-ft of torque! With all that power and torque you know that the 2017 RAM 3500 can haul some serious loads! Two bed options let you customize your truck to your needs, with a modest 6-foot-4-inch short bed or massive 8-foot long bed available. Properly equipped the 2017 RAM 3500 offers a 5,600-pound payload capacity and up to 31,210 lbs of towing! There's not much this truck can't move!

Design of RAM 3500

The 2017 RAM 3500 is available in multiple configurations, designed to give you the versatility your life demands! Three cab styles offer a variety of seating and storage, with the two-door regular cab being your most utilitarian option, the four-door crew cab offering room for passengers and the four-door Mega Cab providing enough room for passengers to stretch out and relax. The six trim levels include various features that make your work and play-time more rewarding! Standard on all models, automatic headlights, a locking tailgate 40/20/40-split front bench and six-speaker with USB compatibility make any of the cabin options more comfortable. Also standard are power windows and locks, a tilt-only steering wheel and your choice of vinyl or cloth seating. Upgrading to the SLT trim adds integrated trailer brake controls, power-sliding rear windows, keyless entry and Bluetooth connectivity for audio and phone with the 5-inch touchscreen interface. The Big Horn (or Long Horn edition for Texans) includes a limited-slip rear differential, a 115-volt power outlet, 10-way power driver seat with lumbar adjustments and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Laramie trim builds on the Big Horn/Long Horn, with the upgraded 6.4-liter engine standard, front and rear parking sensors, a navigation system, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate controls, heated and ventilated front bucket seats and a 10-spearker surround sound audio system. The Laramie Limited extends the features of the Laramie trim, adding in a chrome mesh grille, spray-in bedliner, remote ignition, wood interior, and power adjustable pedals. Finally, the Limited trim offers 20 inch wheels, the RamBox trademark cargo management system, keyless ignition and entry and special black leather upholstery.
