New 2017 RAM 3500 at Don Vance Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM for Marshfield, MO

The 2017 RAM 3500 is a well-known and well-loved contender within the heavy duty pickup truck realm. The RAM 3500 is made with all that you want a truck for, particularly towing, gear hauling, crew transport, and inclement weather. New in 2017, every model utilizes a 5-micron cabin air filter, and on Limited, Laramie Longhorn, and Laramie models is a standard 6.4-liter HEMI engine. Bilstein monotube shocks are standard and work to smooth out the bumps on Laramie Longhorn and Limited 4x4 trims. There is are good reasons that the 2017 RAM 3500 is heralded with titles like 'Highest Snow-Plow Rating', 'The Most Capable Three-Quarter & Single-Ton Pickups', and 'Most Interior Space w/Ram Mega Cab'!

Under the 3500's Hood

The Ram 3500 brings a lot to the table in the power and performance category, such as an auxiliary air suspension system as well as a rear leaf spring system (Hotchkiss). A part-time 4WD setup with a two-speed transfer case (& low-range gearing) is an option to get, or rear-wheel drive will be found as standard. The base Tradesman goes with a manual 4WD transfer case, and all other models rely on an electronic one. The 3500 has a 6-speed automatic transmission with its 383-hp 5.7-liter V8 engine, and this alliance brings up to 400 lb-ft of torque. Also with that setup, up to 17,480-lbs of towing capacity is created, and it has a payload maximum of 4,042-pounds. The front end of the 3500 is not forgotten in there and sees tri-link coil springs, a stabilizer bar, and a solid axle. A 6.4-liter V8 is possible to get as well and puts in a solid performance with 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque when paired with the 6-speed automatic. The towing capacity for this setup is 16,520-lbs, with a payload capacity of 7,390-pounds. All of these towing numbers are for the standard RWD with lone rear wheels (not the dually setup that is possible to get instead). The 2017 Ram 3500 can also employ the powers of a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 engine and a choice between 3 possible matching transmissions. The initial transmission is a standard 6-speed automatic and has 370 horsepower to oversee an impressive 800 lb-ft of torque. After that is the 6-speed manual transmission (obtainable) that has near 350-hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. The third transmission election is the heavy-duty Aisin 6-speed automatic (procurable) which lets in 385-hp and an outstanding 900 lb-feet of torque, for a towing capacity of 31,210 pounds (needs a fifth-wheel truckbed coupling).

Design of RAM 3500

The six models of the 2017 RAM 3500 are the Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn (or named 'Lone Star' if in Texas), Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and the Limited. All models can have double rear wheels instead of the standard single wheels, plus, a sliding rear window, keyless entry/ignition, a spray-in bedliner, and chrome side-steps that are cylindrical in shape. Feature choices abound, and certain ones are available as you go up the chain of models, such as off-road tires, a cargo-box camera, a load-leveling rear air suspension, augmented audio quality, a power sunroof, and the singular RamBox. The Rambox is made of 2 waterproof bins in the truckbed's sides that owners can drain like an ice cooler when needed, as well that they can be locked as an option. Crew Cabs are possible with 1 (of two total) bed lengths, and, for 2017 there are 3 cab arrangements on all models. The Tradesman tiered trim is standard with cruise control, and a tilt-only steering wheel, all other models gain a telescoping tilt-wheel steering column. The Mega Cab has a 6.4-foot bed and the 'regular cab' 3500 is standard with an 8.2-ft truckbed. In the Laramie trim and its succeeding trims, a quick 8.4-in touchscreen with GPS navigation is an election and seems to be popular for many users across the board. All models have as standard one of a few UConnect infotainment systems, rocking a 5- or 8.4-inch display. The Tradesman and SLT trims can be purchased in three cab versions: the 5- to 6-passenger Crew Cab, the deluxe 5- to 6-passenger Mega Cab, and the tried and true 3-passenger Regular Cab.
