What engines are available for the 2017 RAM 3500?

The 3500 can be outfitted with one of two engine options. The first engine option is a 6.4-liter HEMI V8. This engine is capable of creating up to 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. Mega Cab models with this engine create 370 horsepower, while all others achieve the improved and best-in-class 410 horsepower. This engine also features Fuel Saver Technology for reduced gasoline expenses. Alternatively, there's a 6.7-liter Cummins turbocharged diesel V6 engine that will appeal to those looking for fuel economy and monumental torque. This engine is capable of achieving up to 385 horsepower and 900 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel and rear-wheel drive are available regardless of engine. While the gasoline V8 is available with an exclusive six-speed automatic, the diesel V6 can be paired with a six-speed automatic or a class-exclusive six-speed manual.

How capable is the 2017 RAM 3500?

The 2017 RAM 3500 is meant for people who need a truck that can do serious towing and hauling. When properly equipped with the beefy gasoline HEMI V8 engine, the RAM 3500 can tow up to 16,520 pounds. The same engine can also handle a maximum payload of 7,390 pounds. With the alternative Cummins turbodiesel engine, the towing figure nearly doubles-a properly equipped RAM 3500 with the Cummins V6 can tow up to 31,210 pounds. A correctly equipped Cummins V6 model also has a hefty payload of 6,720 pounds.

Which trim and configuration of RAM 3500 is right for me?

There are three cab styles and two bed lengths to pick from for RAM 3500, as well as six core trim levels. For cab styles, you can pick from a three-passenger, two-door regular cab, a four-door Crew Cab with room for up to six passengers, and a four-door Mega Cab with larger rear doors and room for up to six passengers. The regular cab comes with an 8-foot bed, while the Mega Cab comes with a 6-foot-4-inch bed. The Crew Cab is available with either bed length. Core trim levels are Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited. Tradesman and SLT trim levels can be found with any configuration, while the other four trims are exclusively available with Crew and Mega Cabs. The base Tradesman trim level comes standard with a locking tailgate, 17-inch steel wheels, black grille and bumpers, a tilt steering wheel, vinyl upholstery and flooring, automatic headlights, and a stereo with six speakers, an auxiliary audio jack, and a USB port. The SLT offers keyless entry, Bluetooth connectivity, a 5-inch Uconnect touchscreen interface, cloth upholstery, carpeted floors, power heated mirrors, 18-inch wheels, satellite radio, power accessories, and an integrated trailer brake controller, as well as some extra chrome exterior trim. From there, features only become more abundant. The Big Horn has highlights such as alloy wheels, foglights, remote ignition, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel with integrated audio controls. Laramie models add highlights such as projector headlights, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front bucket seats, and a 10-speaker surround-sound audio system. Highlights of the Laramie Longhorn include running boards, cream-colored bumpers, upgraded leather upholstery, real wood trim on the interior, heated seats in the front and rear, and a navigation system. The Limited trim level offers comforts such as the RAMBox cargo management system, keyless entry and ignition, automatic high-beams, and unique black leather upholstery.
