2017 Ram 3500 Overview:
If you are looking for a massively beefed-up workhorse that can tote a lot of cargo or your family, then look no further than the 2018 Ram 3500. This full-size truck can tow a lot of weight when properly equipped, yet its refined interior and smooth ride quality will not lead you to feel like you are riding around in a bulky truck. Also, you will probably have a hard time finding another vehicle that can meet the 3500's max torque of 930 lb-ft of torque.

What's New For 2018?

Aside from amping up the torque, the only other significant change to the 2018 Ram 3500 is the fifth wheel trailer towing capacity, which has been upped from 24,000 pounds to a whopping 30,000. This new hitch is optional and will cost extra, but it means that you can tow some of the largest RVs on the market.

Available Styles

The 2018 Ram 3500 is available as a full-sized pick-up truck. You can choose from several bed lengths and three cab styles.

Available Trims

There are six different trim levels to choose from on the 3500. There is a base 5.7-L V8 engine that generates 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain is rounded out by a 6-speed automatic transmission. As far as a drivetrain goes, you can get a part-time 4WD or RWD. You can also opt for one of two upgraded engines, the 6.4-L V8 (which gets 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque) or the 6.7-L 6-cylinder diesel engine (which gets 350 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque on the 6-speed manual transmission). You can max this out with a heavy-duty 6-speed auto that generates a whopping 930 lb-ft of torque. The base trim is known as the Tradesman, which features power locks and windows, vinyl upholstery, and a locking tailgate. If you want a few more frills, the SLT trim equips larger wheels and has keyless entry. The Big Horn (Lone Star, if you're in Texas) has a limited-slip rear differential and upgraded cloth upholstery. The Laramie trim adds the 6.4-L engine, ventilated and heated front seats, and parking sensors in the rear and front. The Laramie Longhorn features chic leather upholstery, HD radio, and navigation capabilities while the line-topping Limited has its own special black leather upholstery.

Driving Impressions

The 2018 Ram 3500 is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about 9 seconds, which is average for its class. Brakes feel consistent, reliable, and fade-resistant on the highway. There seems to be too much intervention from the power assist features for steering to feel natural, which hinders driving experience. However, the truck handles quite well with minimal body roll when going through tight turns. While the 3500 doesn't cater well to roughing it on mountainous terrain, it is more than able to get around difficult worksites and manages well in harsh climates. Also, its towing capacity makes it an ideal hauler.

Fuel Economy

Although EPA estimates are not currently available for the Ram 3500 models, real-world drivers are reporting that the 2018 3500 gets about 16 combined mpg. This is certainly an improvement over ratings from previous models. This year's model is expected to get somewhere between 13-15 mpg in the city and 17-20 mpg on the highway when totally unladen.

The 2018 Ram 3500 is consistently a top choice for those seeking a heavy-duty workhorse. With 930 lb-ft of torque and a massive towing capacity available, it will be hard to pass up a test drive on the 3500 this year.

How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Ram 3500:

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:

  • Example: Base Ram 3500 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
  • What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.

Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)

Note: All Ram 3500 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.

A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
