2017 RAM 3500
HAUL IT ALL
Load your truck bed and cabin with the gear you need. With a maximum payload of 7,390 pounds with the gas engine*, Ram 3500 lets you carry almost anything you might need.
THREE-LINK FRONT SUSPENSION
The innovative three-link front suspension is developed for both the two- and four-wheel-drive models. It helps contribute to the 14,000-pound Gross Vehicle Weight Rating* and the 39,100-pound Gross Combined Weight Rating* available on the Ram 3500. With a wider frame and a significantly larger stabilizer bar than the previous model, the three-link front suspension utilizes more outwardly positioned springs and stronger shocks to help give the driver a cushioned ride, especially when hauling a heavy payload.
50,000-PSI STEEL FRAME
The 50,000-PSI hydroformed steel frame incorporates additional crossmembers for strength and mass efficiency as well as hydroformed front and rear rail contours for a more secure placement of suspension components and mounts. After all, a truck is only as strong as the steel it's built on.
SMART DIESEL EXHAUST BRAKE
The available Proven and Legendary 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engines incorporate the Class-Exclusive smart exhaust engine brake* to help control the descent of a vehicle on a downward slope. Working much like Speed Control, the engine brake uses a variable nozzle on the turbo to maintain smooth, less aggressive braking while helping to provide vehicle stability and reduced wear on the disc brakes. It is especially handy when hauling heavy loads.
AVAILABLE FIFTH-WHEEL/GOOSENECK PREP PACKAGE
Serious hauling requires some heavy-duty hardware. That's why the Ram 3500 offers an available factory-installed rear axle structural crossmember. Built with provisions for a fifth-wheel and gooseneck hitch, the crossmember seamlessly connects your trailer with the frame of your heavy-duty truck. To ensure a clean electrical connection, we include a seven-pin connector inside the truck bed for wiring hookups. And with Electronic Stability Control* standard on all Ram 3500 trucks, your trailer and truck work together as one heavy-duty hauling machine.
Designed with safety and security in mind, this available cargo-view camera* allows the driver to view the truck bed contents from the Uconnect® display. This feature helps keep the driver free from worry and distraction knowing that everything in the cargo bed is under a watchful eye.
The interior of Ram 3500 is equipped with versatile seating options, clever storage solutions and features to make driving and parking easier wherever you go.
THE COMMAND CENTER
The available Uconnect® 8.4 features a Largest-in-Class available 8.4-inch touchscreen* that puts the driver in complete command. With SiriusXM® Satellite Radio* with one-year subscription included, Wi-Fi Hotspot*, Voice Command, available Navigation and more all in a crisp, full-color display, your Ram 3500 truck becomes a wired office on the move.
