2008 Dodge Ram 3500 SXT 4x4 Regular Cab DRW pickup 2-door manual

Ram 3500 power trains are similar to the 2500 series, which means buyers have a choice of a 330-hp, 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 or an optional Cummins 6.7-liter turbo-diesel inline-six. Regular-cab Ram 3500 models have dual rear wheels, but Quad Cab pickups can have single or dual rear wheels. The SXT model is new for 2008 and includes chrome bumpers, speed control, keyless entry and power locks, windows and mirrors.

The 2008 Dodge Ram is available as a Regular Cab or four-door Quad Cab. (Dodge also offers a Mega Cab 500, which is built on a heavy-duty chassis and reviewed by New Car Test Drive with the Ram heavy-duty models).

The 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 Regular Cab 140.5 in. WB DRW ST is a 2-door, 3-Passenger luxury Pickup Truck, These models are equipped with a standard 5.7-liter V-8 330@ 5,400 rpm - horsepower Engine that achieves Miles per Gallons in urban and on the highway. The Transmission is a 6-speed manual w/OD.

SXT is essentially an ST with cloth upholstery, active turn signals (touch once for 3 blinks) and remote keyless entry. Options parallel those on the ST, although the STX is the trim level for the TRX4 Off-Road package.

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.
