According TO KBB Editors'

Heavy-duty pickups are a special breed of hauler. These full-size leviathans are built to tote and transfer major payloads and pull trailers weighing in excess of 10,000 pounds. Chrysler's entrants in this segment, which includes competitors from Chevrolet, GMC and Ford, are the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups. Available in Regular, Quad or Mega Cab configurations, with rear- or four-wheel drive, short or standard bed lengths, shorter or longer wheelbases, single or dual rear wheels, multiple trim levels and HEMI V8 gasoline or Cummins Turbo Diesel power, these ultra-Rams offer everything the basic Ram 1500 pickup does while adding even greater all-around capability.

Driving Impressions

A strong, stiff frame and decently sorted suspension endow the Dodge Ram 3500 trucks with a good foundation. The cabin is comfortable and reasonably well isolated and while the ride on certain road surfaces can get slightly choppy (particularly in an unlade 4x4 model), adding passengers or payload settles things down nicely and is a modest price to pay for the Ram's excellent all-around capabilities.

Under the Hood

The Dodge Ram 3500 trucks offer two different engines for two different kinds of customers. Each delivers outstanding performance and is available with a choice of transmissions. The 5.7-liter HEMI V8 makes 345 horsepower and 375 pound-feet of torque.
