2018 Ram 3500
Why Buy the Ram 3500?
There are a few really good reasons to buy this much truck. First off, the raw power to haul and tow. The Ram 3500 just stole the torque crown from the Ford Super Duty and smashed an all-time record, delivering 930 lb-ft of rotational force to its Ram 3500 wheels. That translates to better acceleration and more raw power. Remember, if horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you push it.
You will also appreciate the vast number of trims and configurations the RAM 3500 comes in. Though it can be confusing at first, with a little research you can get exactly what you want out of your RAM truck. Finally, you’re going to love the UConnect infotainment system, which includes support for a WiFi hotspot Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Just because your truck has the power of a mammoth doesn’t mean you have to live with prehistoric tech options.
How Much Can a Ram 3500 tow and haul?
This RAM was made for towing and hauling and that’s just what it’ll do. You can load the bed and cabin with up to 7,390 pounds, which is the weight of another entire truck. With the fifth-wheel hitch, the RAM 3500 can tow 30,000 pounds, enough to tow just about any size motorhome.
Which Ram 3500 is Best?
We hope you’re sitting down for this but the 2018 Ram 3500 pickup truck has 26 trims. That may sound like a lot, but it’s due to different cab options. Excluding cab options, there are really only six trims: Tradesman, SLT, Bighorn, Laramie, Longhorn, and Limited. They come in regular or crew cab or the Mega cab, which comes with a cargo box and nearly two extra feet in the cab to create seating for six.
But the very best RAM 3500 is the Limited Tungsten model, which is fully loaded with hints of strong tungsten in its metallic skeleton.
What’s the Difference between a Ram 2500 and 3500?
The difference is mostly in output. The RAM 3500 does the bigger jobs, tows the bigger loads, and hauls the bigger payloads that the RAM 2500 can’t. If you don’t think you’ll ever need to haul more than 3,000 pounds or tow more than 18,000 pounds, the RAM 2500 should get the job done. Otherwise, get the RAM 3500.
