New 2016 RAM 3500 at Kernersville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for Kernersville, NC

After the previous year's bump to a massive 865 pound-feet of torque for its 2015 3500 Heavy Duty pickup, Ram certainly isn't taking a rest. The model already offers the best towing capacity and most torque in its class, but both figures are growing even higher for the 2016 model year. Now, customers that really need some grunt can order the Cummins 6.7-liter inline-6 diesel in the 3500 with a staggering 900 lb-ft of torque and 385 hp.

Under the 3500's Hood

Thanks in part to fuel delivery and turbocharging tweaks and a fortified driveline, properly equipped Cummins-equipped Ram 3500s can tow up to 31,210 lbs. When matched with Ram's 6-speed manual transmission, which features a wear-compensating clutch, the combination delivers 350 hp at 2,800 rpm and 660 pound-feet. of torque at 1,500 rpm. Those who prefer gas engines but need (or want) more power than the standard 5.7-liter HEMI V8's 383 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. can now opt for a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 that delivers 410 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque in regular or crew cabs.

The 3500 comes with vinyl, cloth or leather upholstery, full power accessories, cruise control, tilt-wheel steering and remote engine start, not to mention the power-adjustable pedals, dual-zone auto climate control, front bucket seats and memory for driver's settings found in higher trims. There is technology that includes front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera in higher trims, as well as Bluetooth hands-free calling and, in the Laramie Longhorn and Limited iterations, standard GPS navigation with an 8" touchscreen display. Basic Uconnect (3.0) is standard in the 2015 Ram 3500 Tradesman and interfaces with 6 speakers and an auxiliary iPod input. The SLT adds upgraded Uconnect directions with a 5" touchscreen, along with satellite radio, while the Laramie throws in a 506-watt seven-speaker Premium Alpine audio system, and the Laramie Limited returns boasting a standard 9-speaker premium Surround Sound stereo.

The 2016 RAM 3500 comes with 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and four airbags. It also boasts optional safety features such as park assist and a rearview camera. While heavy-duty trucks aren't crash-tested, we expect that you'll be on the safer side of most collisions. The heavy-duty RAM is like the RAM 1500's bodybuilding older brother. It's not quite as refined, but it sure is tough. The coolest thing about the heavy-duty RAM is that you can get a manual transmission with the turbo-diesel. Plenty of truck guys still like to shift for themselves, but the RAM is the only truck that offers that option. Give us a call for more information on the 2016 RAM 3500!
