2019 Ram 3500 Grey 2019 Ram 3500 Navy Blue

Anyone who has browsed the market for a new heavy-duty pickup truck knows just how much goes into the design of this vehicle segment. They're often fitted with a number of technologies and exterior features to simplify the hook-up to just about any trailer. Additionally, any truck that can tow well-over 10,000 pounds will need formidable engine options to sustain its high weight capacity.

To help prospective drivers make an educated decision on their next truck, we at Liberty Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT put together this 2019 Ram 3500 review. Continue reading to see how this updated classic could aid your commutes near Rapid City, Belle Fourche, and Sioux Falls, SD.

A Multitude of Engines

Ram offers three engine options for the Ram 3500, each with increasing towing power. The standardly equipped 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine makes up to 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission. With just the base engine, you'll already have a high torque output that allows the 3500 to tow over 18,000 pounds.

The next available engine is the 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engine, which is paired to a Corporate 6-speed automatic multi-range electronically controlled transmission. This setup gets up to 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque.

If you want even more power to handle the next job, you'll likely want to opt for the High Output version of the 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6. It comes attached to an optimized and fully electronically controlled Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission to ensure controlled, fluid shifting. You can expect up to 400 horsepower and a whopping 1,000 lb-ft of torque.

How Much Can I Haul?

All three of the Ram 3500 model's trim levels boast plenty of hauling ability, be it mulch in the bed or the largest horse trailer you can find on the hitch.

The entry level Ram 3500 will grant you a maximum towing capacity up to 23,000 pounds when properly equipped. You'll also have up to 7,680 pounds to work with when it comes to payload capacity-which is the max for all Ram 3500 models.

When properly equipped with the refined 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel and proper tow package, the Ram 3500 can tow up to a hulking 35,100 pounds. No longer will you have to rely on a friend to get the job done or wait to purchase that hefty family camper.

Tow-Ready Technologies

There are a few technologies to assist you wherever you need to load up and roll out. An available 360-degree Surround View Camera with Trailer Reverse Guidance View will use five cameras to give you an expansive image of what's around you. This feature is especially helpful when you're trying to back up in alignment with a trailer.

You can even get an available and quite handy Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring system, too. It shows pressure readings for up to four trailers and 12 tires per trailer. You don't have to scan through to monitor these live readings, as the system is located within the Driver Information Digital Cluster Display.
