Muscular. Powerful. Posh. Those are some of the words used by reviewers or fans or both when asked about the Ram 3500. And with good reason. As stated by Ram chief Bob Hegbloom in an interview:

"Ram maintains leadership in all three pickup segments offering best-in-class fuel efficiency, best-in-class towing, best-in-class power and best-in-class payload. Ram continues to break records in the most important consumer-driven titles of the pickup truck market and we're not slowing down."


 

Towing Capacity

There are several firsts for the heavy duty (HD) this model year. Thanks to the brand's long-standing partnership with engine manufacturer Cummins, the 2016 3500 Series Rams now has a max towing capacity of up to 31,210 pounds in properly equipped diesel-powered models. Speaking of diesel, after Ram bumped the torque rating of the 3500's diesel engine from 850 pound-feet to 865 last year, the 2016 model now gets another 35 to top out at an even 900.

Trim Levels & Body Styles

Ram 3500 buyers continue to have three main trims to choose from: the base Tradesman, the well-featured SLT, and the top-of-the-line Laramie. These further divide into sub-trims SLT-based Big Horn/Lone Star, the Laramie-based Longhorn, and the luxurious Laramie Limited, which tops the lineup. Buyers also have three cab styles, two bed lengths and three engines to contend with in configuring their ultimate 3500 HD.


 

Safety Features

One thing they won't have to worry about is safety. Four-wheel antilock brakes, and traction and stability control systems are standard. Same with front side-mounted airbags and front head protection airbags. Also standard are a post-collision safety system and turn-signal-integrated side rearview mirrors.

How comfortable the 2016 RAM 3500 is!

Creature comforts are numerous. Upholstery, for example, can be vinyl, cloth or leather depending on the trim level. Most of the 3500s come with cruise control, a driver's information display, tilt steering wheel and full power accessories. Air conditioning can also vary from the manual system in the lower trims to dual-zone automatic climate control found standard in all Laramie models.

Other features found either standard or available include driver seat memory settings, a rearview camera system, rear parking sensors, heated and ventilated (i.e., "cooled") power-adjustable front row seats, and a heated steering wheel. Many of these are offered in packages which are available on select trims and sub-trims.

Diesel Engine of the 2016 RAM 3500

The standard powerplant for the Ram 3500 HD line is a 5.7-liter V-8 engine good for 383 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. Buyers can then opt for either a 6.4-liter V-8 or a turbo-charged 6.7-liter diesel six. Transmissions are variations of a six-speed automatic. All models of the 2016 Ram 3500 come in either rear- or four-wheel drive.
