The Ram 3500 Crew Cab is one of the biggest vehicles in the U.S. that can be driven without a CDL. After the Chrysler acquisition by the Italian group Fiat, the Dodge brand was split and the utility vehicles are named Ram, after the Dodge Ram series. 3500 means that it can haul 3500 pounds on it.
A revised RAM 3500 came out in 2013, bringing more style, more power, and more features. Visually, the new RAM 3500 upholds a bold presence, building upon the previous design, while retaining comfort and styling.
The model is offered with a choice of 18- or 20-inch wheels and a selection of 12 different colors. An interesting feature is found at the side mirrors, which can be flipped upwards to extend the view for if there is a trailer attached.
Mechanically, the company's biggest truck now comes with an improved suspension, including the classic Hotchkiss leaf spring system and new rear air suspension, dual alternator systems for additional power supply and refined Cummins diesel engines. The same engines are used in Europe for buses and coaches of up to 18 tons.
The 3500 model can be had in a very wide range by combining several bed lengths, cab styles, rear axles and you can even have it in the chassis version so you can put whatever you want in the back. Other features include new interior trimmings, a restyled dashboard, Uconnect with voice control, keyless entry and start as well as a rearview camera.
