New 2017 RAM 3500 at Susquehanna for Wrightsville, PA

This is a mainstay of the hard-to-impress trades industry that you have chanced upon, as the RAM 3500 is mechanized and designed specifically for hauling, towing, traversing adverse worksites, bad weather, and the multitudinous factors encountered weekly by contractors and tradespeople all over the country. For 2017, a 6.4-liter HEMI engine is not only new but also standard on Laramie Longhorn, Limited, and Laramie models. Additionally, standard on Laramie Longhorn and Limited 4x4 models are Bilstein monotube shocks. There are new developments that seem small but their overall impact is huge, like that for 2017, every single 2017 Ram truck now employs the benefits of a 5-micron cabin air filter.

Under the 3500's Hood

A 6.4-liter V8 is procurable for the 3500 and will surmount the odds with its 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque when directed by the 6-speed automatic. The towing capacity for this combination is 16,520-lbs, with a 7,390-lbs payload limit. Payload totals can culminate in 6,680-lbs with the 6-speed manual, 6,580-lbs with the HD 6-speed automatic, and 6,720-lbs with the 6-speed automatic transmission as standard. All of these towing abilities are dependent on the standard RWD and having single rear wheels (not the obtainable double rear wheels). The 3500 has a 383-hp 5.7-liter V8 engine election that is buddied up to a 6-speed automatic transmission, and this team manufactures up to 400 lb-ft of torque. 17,480-lbs could be towed with the same team, and they grab attention with a tremendous payload capacity of 4,042-lbs. The 2017 Ram 3500 has an option for a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 engine that will need to be matched with 1 of 3 potential transmissions. The 1st transmission is a standard 6-speed automatic and works with 370-hp to direct 800 lb-ft of torque. Following that is the 6-speed manual transmission (optional) that is a more conservative fuel-efficiency-influenced decision at 350-hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. The third transmission possibility is the available heavy-duty Aisin 6-speed automatic which commands 385-hp and powers 900 lb-feet of torque, accessing a truly remarkable towing capacity of 31,210 pounds (using a 5th-wheel hitch). A part-time 4WD setup with a dual-speed transfer case (& low-range gearing) is another possibility to purchase, but if not, the 3500 will be rear-wheel drive as standard. The base Tradesman sports a manual 4WD transfer case, and all other models use an electronic one. The Ram 3500 has a supplemental air suspension system as well as a rear Hotchkiss leaf spring system. Up front, there are 3-link coil springs, a solid axle, and a stabilizer bar. All of this ensure titles are won and kept, like the 'Highest snow plow rating', 'Most interior space with Ram Mega Cab', and 'The most capable three-quarter and one-ton pickups', for starters!

Design of RAM 3500

All models are customizable to get with either available double rear or standard single wheels. The 6 models of the 2017 RAM 3500 are the Tradesman, SLT, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, Big Horn ('Lone Star' in Texas), and the Limited. The Regular Cab 3500 is standard with an 8.2-ft truckbed, and the Mega Cab normally translates to a 6.4-foot bed. Crew Cab variants are possible with one (of 2) bed lengths, and further, there are 3 cab variations and 6 models for every 3500 model gradation. The Tradesman is standard with a tilt-only steering wheel and cruise control, all models past those acquire a telescoping tilt-wheel steering column. In the Laramie and up, an excellent 8.4-in touchscreen with GPS navigation becomes available and is strongly encouraged. All models have as standard one of the many versions of the UConnect infotainment system, with either a 5- or 8.4-inch display. A spray-in bedliner also is a real choice for any 3500 model, plus, a sliding rear window, keyless entry/ignition, and chrome cylindrical side-steps. The Tradesman and SLT are presented in 3 cab variants: the 3-passenger Regular Cab, the 5- to 6-passenger Crew Cab, and the expansive 5- to 6-passenger Mega Cab. All models besides those 2 are formed as either Crew or Mega Cabs. Furnishing selections abound in the 3500, contingent on model level encompass a power sunroof, a load-leveling rear air suspension, extra audio capabilities, off-road tires, a cargo-box camera, and the brand-created RamBox, which has 2 waterproof compartments placed over the rear fenders (along the truckbed's sides) that lock and are drainable if your work beverages were to get burst.
