When the going gets tough, you need a truck that can conquer even the most challenging jobs. You need a truck that can do all the heavy lifting and give you a break. The truck you need is the 2017 Ram 3500, one of the models offered in Ram's Heavy Duty Truck line. Experience it for yourself by giving us a call at Parks Motors.
The 3500's smaller siblings, the 1500 and 2500, are great for many drivers. But if you regularly have to handle the toughest jobs, you're going to need the toughest truck. The 3500 offers unrestrained ruggedness and heavy-duty capability. When you're ready, come see us nine miles east of high prices and Wichita, KS to take it for a drive.
The 3500 is available with three different engine options, which include a 383-horsepower HEMI V8 and 410-horsepower HEMI V8. The engine that truly sets the Ram 3500 apart from its competition, however, is a 6.7-liter Cummins High-Output Turbo Diesel. This power plant puts out 385 horsepower at 2,800 rpm and a stunning 900 lb.-ft. of torque.
Ram delivers the highest towing capability in the heavy-duty pickup segment. Simply put, if you have some heavy-duty towing needs, the Ram 3500 is the truck you want. It has a capacity of up to 31,210 pounds of towing and 7,390 pounds of payload. This astounding capability will help you conquer any challenging towing situation.
Though the 3500's reliability and powerful performance is important, staying connected while out on the job is important too. That's why the pickup offers the Uconnect 8.4 infotainment system. This system features an 8.4-inch touch-screen display with features like Hands-Free Calling, Voice Text Reply and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
What's New on the Ram 3500 for 2017?
The Ram 3500 has undergone a few noteworthy changes for the 2017 model year that should make the pickup's heavy-duty capabilities even more accessible. For one, all Laramie Longhorn and Limited 4x4 models come standard with Bilstein monotube shocks to complement the 3500's Hotchkiss leaf spring suspension system (supplemental air suspension system is offered).
The 6.4-liter 410-horsepower HEMI V8 we mentioned above now comes included on Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited Trims, producing 429 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. On top of all that, new design characteristics can be found on the Power Wagon model, which includes an updated interior and legacy graphics inspired by the "Macho Power Wagon" from 1979 – 1980.
