2023 RAM 3500 Owner's Manual
The RAM 3500 is a massive rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive tractor designed for those who want to stand out on the road and handle any task with ease.
Pickups of this series have been produced since 1981. In 2019, the world saw the RAM 3500 of the fifth generation, which impressed not only with its muscular design and increased parameters, but also with improved power and endurance indicators.
The novelty of 2023 will be the RAM 3500 Heavy Duty, which conquers not only with its power and grand dimensions, but also with a high level of interior comfort. Towing even the heaviest and most voluminous loads will not become an obstacle in the performance of work.
The technical features of the car allow you to perform tasks of any complexity both at work and during rest.
The pickup truck received a 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 and High Output Cummins Turbo Diesel I6 diesel engine, which is paired with a 6-speed and 8-range automatic transmission. This combination made it possible to maximize the productivity and load capacity of the tractor. Available for the model is an 8-cylinder engine with a displacement of 6.4 liters with an 8-speed transmission.
The car is capable of towing loads weighing up to 16 tons. The exclusive adaptive rear air suspension ensures the vehicle’s strength and stability during transportation. A novelty was the possibility of reversing the trailer, which facilitates the towing of large loads.
Paired rear wheels are available for the long body. Thanks to this option, the load is better distributed, the possible weight of transportation increases, and the pickup truck keeps better on the road. Additional wheels visually increase the parameters of the vehicle.
Depending on the type of cabin, the car is designed for 3-6 seats. Passengers and the driver will comfortably get in and out of the car with the help of an automatic step that extends when the door is opened and hides when it is closed. A digital rear-view mirror is installed in the cabin, which broadcasts the image from the camera.
The car is equipped with a range of comfort and safety systems:
• Rambox storage system;
• Uconnect touch display;
• traffic flow monitoring with Lanesense;
• pressure control in trailer tires;
• adaptive light;
• adaptive cruise control system;
• parking assistant;
• control of blind spots.
Advantages and disadvantages
Motorists were expecting a replacement for the 6-speed automated gearbox. Some competitors of diesel trucks are much faster. But these minor disadvantages are completely neutralized by the car’s excellent driving characteristics, towing capacity, engine range and other equally important characteristics.
The main competitor of the RAM 3500 was the Silverado 3500HD. The cars are in the water price category with a minimal difference: $46,780 starting price of the RAM 3500 against the price of the Silverado 3500HD in $45,900. The power is slightly higher and is 410 horsepower, despite the fact that the engine volume is smaller.
