2016 - Present

In 2009, Dodge Ram was converted into Ram Trucks as a separate brand for light utility vehicles, and the third generation of the 3500 series became Ram Trucks 3500. In 2014, Chrysler's light commercial vehicle division, born from the Dodge brand, introduced a facelifted version for the 3500 HD series. It was available in a few cab-styles, including a chassis-cab or as a regular-cab version with a bed in the back and ready to receive a gooseneck. It was the hard-worker of the family, used to carry heavy loads and pull trailers with construction vehicles. Its exterior look was impro...

2016 - Present

After its rebranding from Dodge to Ram Trucks, the carmaker focused on commercial vehicles and pickups, and the 3500 HD Truck was its most potent range. In 2016, Chrysler's light commercial vehicle division, born from the Dodge brand, introduced new versions for the 3500 HD series. It was available in a few cab styles, including the Crew Cab version with four doors and a bed in the back. Ram 3500 Crew Cab featured a new front fascia with a big trapezoidal with a mesh design and RAM chromed lettering. On the lower part, depending on the trim level, the heavy-duty pickup featured a...

2016 - Present

When your towing capacity looked like the ZIP-code for Macon, Georgia, it seems that the vehicle chosen was a 2016 RAM Mega-Cab. RAM lineup was consistent, and the utility-vehicle maker considered that a full-size cabin was not an option if there was more stuff to carry inside. Also, it ensured a payload of up to 7390 lbs (3352 kg) plus a towing of 31210 lbs (14156 kg). Moreover, the heavy-duty hauler could fit up to six people inside the cabin plus their rifles or motorcycle riding equipment. The RAM Mega-Cab 3500 HD featured a more extended cabin than the Crew-Cab, with an extension ...

2013 - 2016

The 2016 RAM 3500 Heavy Duty was not the daily driver that someone would use unless it works on a daily basis with a trailer and a tractor in the back. But it was one of the hard-workers that never complained. The RAM 3500 regular cab was all about work. It was a heavy-duty vehicle with the proper chassis, engine, and transmission. It was available as a crew-cab as well, if there was a team needed for the job, but it was hardly a pickup of choice if some would like to go camping unless it needs to tow 14157 kg (31.210 lbs) on a trailer. For the 2013 model, the RAM removed the “Dodge” b...

2013 - 2016

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 1...

2013 - 2016

The big, heavy-duty pickups are not meant to be daily drivers, but when the owner needs to tow every day 17.000 lbs, and a crew of five plus luggage, the Mega Cab HD was a great choice. Usually, the HD pickups don't feature some special comfort amenities or some special styling. They are just working horses who don't have to look good. They just have to pull heavy loads. The Mega Cab was huge enough to raise the question if a CDL was needed. For the styling, the Mega Cab shared the same front fascia with its lighter brothers such as the RAM 1500 Laramie. It looked like it ha...
