The Ram 2500 three-quarter ton and 3500 one-ton start with a distinctive design. Over twenty years ago, we revolutionized pickup truck design by crafting the look of a long nose over the highway truck onto the cab. That design remains today as Ram’s look – tall nose with a huge grille, lower-set fenders with headlamp clusters on each one, and a bumper that’s bold and highly functional. The Heavy Duty comes in three cab configurations – Regular two-door, Crew Cab four-door with room for up to six adults inside, and the largest cab ever offered in a pickup – the Mega Cab. Depending on the cab, there is a choice of bed sizes, starting with six-foot-four inches to eight feet long, stretched over three wheelbases. And Ram 3500s can be equipped with a dual rear wheel set-up.
To offset the load, the Ram Heavy Duty has a three-link front suspension connected to a 50 KSI steel frame. These may not mean anything unless the job calls for a big towing job or a big haul to be done. The heavy-duty Ram 2500 and 3500 truck offers the only coil-spring rear suspension in the business for the smoothest ride possible regardless of load. An auto-leveling air suspension is also available, making lowering the bed for easier trailer hook-up. For added storage and convenience, the class-exclusive Ram Box storage system. A Ram Box on each side of the bed eliminates the need for a third-party box and enables quicker and lockable space for the tools of the trade.
Part of being the best truck in the business is having the best cab in the business. Ram truck’s interiors have always been high quality regardless of trim level. A big steering wheel frames one of the most comprehensive instrument clusters around with features like available Trailer Light Check and Off-Road pages. An available digital rearview mirror features a real-time video stream utilizing rear-facing camera, a real boon when towing. And a new air filtration system helps filter out up to 95% of dust, smoke and droplets.
From practical vinyl seating surfaces in Tradesman® and BigHorn® models to cloth seats and luxurious two-tone leather heated and ventilated seats, Ram 2500 and 3500 offer seating that makes sense. Front and rear bench seats mean seating for up to six passengers, front bucket seats and a reclining rear bench translate into an SUV-like interior for higher trim levels. Limited owners will enjoy real wood accents, leather seats and touches of aluminum.
