Blessed with a glorious redesign for the current model year, the 2019 Ram 3500 is a behemoth to behold. Landing above the Ram 1500 and Ram 2500 in terms of both capability and price, this is a vehicle to look into if you need to transport very, very heavy things (or just want the ability do so).
The redesign brings along refinements to every aspect of the Ram 3500, particularly in key areas such as power, technology, comfort, and performance. Additionally, the truck’s drag coefficient has been reduced and efficiency increased thanks to the streamlined design. The 2019 Ram 3500 comes in five trim levels, with a starting MSRP of just $34,845. We’re continually awed by the machine’s perfect balance of comfort and capability.
Though the lower trims do a great job of giving you an excellent vehicle without unnecessary fodder, pick-ups these days are offering more and more luxury level features. The 2019 Ram 3500 does not hold back in this regard. Cutting-edge safety will keep you and your passengers secure, while you’d be forgiven for thinking the high-tech user interface was discovered through a rift in the fabric of time.
Trucks are known for their stiff rides, but new innovations in the design of the 2019 Ram 3500 dampen that roughness significantly. In addition, tight handling, light steering, and quick easy turning ability take the bulkiness out of controlling such a big roller. You’ll be doing it all in peaceful silence too, as new active-noise cancelling technology keeps the cabin comfortable and quiet, cutting noise levels by a full ten decibels compared to the previous model.
A good heavy-duty truck needs power, perhaps more than anything else. Luckily, the 2019 Ram 3500 brings the muscle in spades (that’s an intriguing image). The newly standard 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 engine outputs a brain-bursting 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. If you’re working at Jurassic Park and need to carry a dinosaur in the bed, no worries: the engine’s maximum payload is 7,680 pounds.
