Under the 3500's Hood
The 2017 RAM 3500 is offered with two phenomenal engines, both of which have been engineered to maximize power and capability while also providing a smooth and comfortable ride. The standard 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine will provide excellent power ratings, with a best-in-class 410 horsepower. It has 429 lb-ft of torque and has been constructed with two spark plugs per cylinder to increase peak power and torque. This system will also reduce exhaust emission, increase efficiency, and help to offer a maximum towing rating of 16,520 pounds. The legendary 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 engine can alternatively be equipped, and when it is paired to the optional AISIN six-speed automatic transmission it can deliver an extraordinary maximum towing rating of 31,210 pounds. The Cummins engine will offer a maximum payload of 6,720 pounds, 385 horsepower, and 900 lb-ft of torque.
Design of RAM 3500
The 3500 is offered in many configurations, starting with the two-door regular cab, and going onto the four-door crew cab, and the four-door jumbo crew cab which is called the Mega Cab. There are six optional trim levels, called the Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. The regular cab comes equipped with an 8-foot bed, and it is offered with the Tradesman and SLT trims. The crew cab is offered with the long bed or a short 6-foot 4-inch bed, while the Mega Cab has the short bed - both of these trims can be equipped in any of the six trim levels. The standard equipment list for the 3500 will include automatic headlights, 17-inch steel wheels, a locking tailgate, and a six-speaker stereo system. There is also vinyl upholstery and flooring, though Work Grade heavy-duty vinyl upholstery is offered. Some of the great optional features that can be equipped include a cargo-view camera, a load-leveling suspension, off-road tires, a sunroof, and a CD player.
