Three engines make up the court of the Ram 3500.
The 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine gives you plenty of power by producing 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. It’s accompanied by an 8-speed automatic transmission to kick it into the right gear.
Do you need more power to reign over your towing and hauling tasks? Try out the available 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine. It overrules many competing machines, with its production of 370 horsepower backed by 850 lb-ft of torque.
However, the heir to the throne of power originates with the upgraded available 6.7L High-Output Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine. You’ll be overpowered by an engine that produces 420 horsepower and 1,075 lb-ft of torque.
The two available engines work with the Aisin 6-speed automatic transmission.
Reign With the Right Towing Capacity
With all this power, how much can your Ram 3500 handle? When properly equipped, the standard 6.4L engine tows a maximum of 18,210 pounds to transport a lot of material. This comes with the ability to carry a maximum payload of 7,680 pounds—the highest level of all the engines.
If you let the optional 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I6 engine take the reins, it tows up to 22,670 pounds when outfitted correctly. Keep piling on the materials you need for your latest project or load up your dirt bikes, with its maximum payload of 6,840 pounds.
We saved the best-in-class towing capacity for last. When driving with the available 6.7L High-Output Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine and the right equipment, it tows a maximum of 37,090 pounds for endless hauls of anything you can imagine. This engine comes with a maximum payload of 6,570 pounds.
Technology Without a Wand
You won’t need a jeweled scepter or a magically infused staff to activate your on-board towing gadgets. An available Uconnect® 5C system can be installed in your Ram. Its customizable screen allows for up to five user profiles and offers tow-specific navigation, all accessible at your fingertips.
To keep a watch on your trailer, rely on the available 360° Surround View Camera with Trailer Reverse Guidance view. It even shows you optional Off-Road Info Pages, if you’re headed to Bundy Hill Offroad over the weekend.
On the Driver Information Digital Cluster Display, you’ll be able to ensure that your trailer’s tires contain enough air through the trailer tire pressure monitoring system. You’ll find room enough on the display to cover up to four trailers.
