2009 Dodge Ram 3500 SXT Mega Cab pickup 4dr manual

The Dodge Ram 3500 offers bold styling, big power and many creature comforts, making it ideal for work and play.

The Ram 3500 provides something for everyone with the choice of two engines, three cab styles (regular, Quad and Mega cabs), two wheelbases, single or dual rear wheels and either 4x2 or 4x4 drive types. When properly equipped the Ram 3500 can tow up to 16,850 lbs. Available safety features include dual front airbags, curtain airbags, and stability control and anti-lock brakes. Options include a navigation system, power adjustable pedals, power sunroof, rear seat video entertainment system, remote start system, and Connect wireless connectivity and Sirius satellite radio. The available Sport Appearance Group features chrome-clad alloy wheels and body-color fascias. For 2009, the 6.7L Cummins diesel engine becomes the sole engine available on the Ram 3500.

The 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 features the 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel as standard for all trim levels, producing 650 lb-ft of torque and 350 horsepower. A limited slip rear axle is also standard and a 5-speed manual transmission is not available with the optional 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine. Remote start is available with the 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel.

Like other heavy-duty pickups, the Ram 3500 has a stiff ride that bounces passengers around. Choosing this heavy-duty work truck over the regular 1500 lets you opt for the 325-hp Cummins 5.9-liter turbo diesel six-cylinder engine. Chrysler's powerful 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is also available. The crew cab's rear seat is tight and upright.

The Ram 3500 pickups will follow their 1500 brother in getting a full makeover for the 2010 model year. For now, however, the Ram heavy-duty trucks are mostly carryovers from 2008.

The 3500 trucks come on either a 140.5- or 160.5-inch wheelbase. The former handles the Quad cab long-bed and Quad Cab short-bed. All 3500 models come standard with the newly upgraded 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 gas engine. The popular 6.7-liter Cummins six-cylinder turbo diesel is optional in all 3500 models. The 3500 Mega cabs can be ordered as single rear wheel or dual rear wheel. The 3500 regular cab comes only as a dual-rear-wheel model. Four trim levels are available: ST, SXT, SLT and Laramie. And the Mega Cab isn't available in ST.

Exterior

This design has been around since 2003 and showcases the broad-shouldered look of the Ram's big-rig styling. The massive crosshair grille, creased hood, air dam and sculpted bumper increase the intimidation factor when viewed from the front.

  • Available power-sliding rear window on Quad Cab
  • Available sunroof on Mega Cab and Quad Cab
  • Available two-tone paint on SLT and Laramie
  • Chrome bumpers on most trims

Interior

The Mega Cab is huge. Lift up the second-row seat and there's 71 cubic feet of storage space. When folded down, the rear seat can recline up to 37 degrees for passenger comfort. The Quad Cab isn't quite as roomy as competing crew cabs, but it can be ordered with numerous creature comforts. The white-face gauges are easy to read and the controls are conveniently placed. Laramie models are spiced up with wood trim and leather upholstery.
  • Dual-zone climate control available on Power Wagon, standard on Laramie

  • Six-speed manual (6.29:1 1st gear), standard 6.7-liter engine
  • Five-speed automatic, standard 5.7-liter engine
  • Six-speed automatic, available 6.7-liter engine

Safety

Heavy-duty trucks rarely get advanced safety features or additional airbag systems. The Ram 2500 and 3500 do offer an electronic stability system as an option on all models except the Power Wagon. A stability system is standard on Laramie models.

  • Latch child-seat anchors
  • Three-point seat belts in all positions
  • Energy-absorbing steering column
