Can you tell me about the 3500's features?

There are five trims levels to choose from when considering a Ram 3500. The base model is called the Tradesman and it comes outfitted with keyless ignition, 17-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, a 5-inch infotainment touchscreen, and vinyl bench seats. The upper trim levels, like the Big Horn and the Laramie, add chrome bumpers, cloth upholstery, larger wheels, trailer brake controller, leather upholstery, an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen, soft-opening tailgate with remote release, wood trim, a load-leveling rear air suspension, and more! Available features for the 3500 include a surround-view camera system, Harman Kardon sound system, dual rear wheels, and the RamBox cargo management system.

What kind of engine options are offered?

The Ram 3500's engine lineup consists of three engine options. The base engine, a 6.4-liter V8, generates up to 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. This engine is enhanced with cylinder deactivation to save fuel when the truck does not require all its power. Ram mates this engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission and standard rear-wheel drive. A four-wheel drive configuration is available for all trims but the Power Wagon where it is standard. The other two engines are both a version of the Cummins 6.7-liter inline-6 turbodiesel. The first creates up to 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. The second version, exclusive to the 3500, generates 400 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque. Both versions are paired with a specially designed 6-speed automatic transmission.

What about safety features?

While choosing a heavy-duty pickup truck, drivers may not be thinking about safety, but it is important and that is why Ram outfits the 3500 with all the latest safety features and equipment. Stand out features offered for the 2020 model year include, but are not limited to Adaptive Forward Lighting System that boasts crisp LED lighting, a Forward Collision Mitigation Warning system with Active Braking, and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop for comfortable and safe highway cruising. Other available safety features include the ParkSense front and rear parking assistance systems and a Blind-Spot Monitoring system with Rear Cross Path Detection.
