Ram 3500 Review: What’s New This Year?

This year’s model hits showroom floors as part of the fifth generation, but it brings a major upgrade with its high output diesel engine that kicks up 75 pound-feet of torque more than it did in the past, and also boosts its maximum towing rating by a whopping 2,000 more pounds. It also offers a new technology feature or two like the digital rearview mirror option.

Trim Levels and Tech

The new Ram 3500 comes in five different trim levels:

  • the base Tradesman
  • the mid-range Big Horn
  • the luxury appointed Laramie
  • the premium-level Longhorn
  • the top-level Limited

You can choose from the regular cab, crew cab, and extra-large Mega Cab configurations with a standard 6-foot 4-inch bed or 8-foot bed. All come with rear-wheel drive and offer four-wheel drive as an option.

At the Tradesman, you get a 5-inch Uconnect® touchscreen with Bluetooth for the phone and a tire pressure monitoring system. The Big Horn adds a few touches like power heated towing mirrors, power accessories, remote keyless entry, and a trailer brake controller.

The Laramie is where things really step up, adding features like power fold accessories, heated seats up front, automatic dual-zone climate control, and a heated steering wheel all to add comfort and convenience. The infotainment system also kicks up to an 8.4-inch touchscreen with satellite radio, nine-speaker premium audio, and integration for your Android and Apple smart devices as well as remote start and parking sensors.

Step up to the Longhorn and you add LED bed lighting, automatic windshield wipers, and heated back seats for more comfort. You also get a GPS system and a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. At the Limited trim, you’ll add a huge 12-inch touchscreen and wireless device charging. As for driver aids, you get blind-spot monitoring that extends to your trailer, and cross-traffic alerts to help you see what you can’t normally.
