2009 Dodge Ram 3500 ST 4x4 Regular Cab DRW pickup 2-door manual

The Dodge Ram 3500 is the one-ton heavy-duty Dodge pickup. The boldly styled Ram replaced the previous Dodge pickup in 1994 and for 1998 the Quad Cab was added. The Ram 1500 was redesigned for 2002 and the heavy-duty Ram was updated for 2003 with styling that distinguishes it from the light-duty truck.

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.
