Strongest pulling truck on the market

This truck is of no comparison. Out tows out performs all the rest. The ride comfort is just s good as the towing. Very comfortable and quiet. Has a spacious cab and offers many comfort and convenience options. Don't buy any other till you drive a RAM!

Drive/Tows like a Champ

2016 3500 6.7 Turbodiesel Crewcab Big Horn standard bed 68RFE auto SRW. Upgraded from a 2500 for more payload and glad I did in case I upgrade the fifth-wheel. Currently towing a 12K # fiver. Just back from a 2-week trip to Gettysburg PA. Truck went up the Allegheny Mountains easily and down easier with the smart diesel exhaust brake. 6% grades down for 1/2 mile at a time and didn't touch the brakes. Love saving my pads. Plenty of grunt and tow haul with stout brakes saved our bacon when a semi pulled out without signal 20 ft in front of us at 65 mph. She backed down on a dime. Came from a Chevy and hated to leave it but couldn't find a price close to the Ram for similar trim and options. Is also a daily driver. Been solid in Minnesota winters. IMO, Ram's plus over Chevy Silverado 3500 include integrated brake controller on right side of wheel rather than upper left. Dumb design. Same for lack of an interior DEF gauge, DEF tank behind passenger front tire and DEF fill requiring one to pop the hood. Really? Plenty of interior leg room and the Ram has a tight turning radius for a one ton. I think a better finish as well. Good sight-lines all around. Touch screen nav system easy to use. Decent apps. Drove both trucks and each were smooth riders, just couldn't justify the extra $5K for fewer features. If you like push start and want leather in a truck, the Laramie is a great choice as well. Happy with my Big Horn, she gets the job done and then some.

Great vehicle. Interior is not as nice as my 2011

Very happy. Interior not as nice as my 2011 with the same pkg, which really disappointed me. You took some of the stitching from the seats for instance. Does not ride as well as my 2011 but that is probably tires

Ram is the truck to go!

Ram is one of the most dependable trucks out there. They are top notch. You can't go wrong with either of the HEMI's (5.7 and 6.4). You can't go wrong with the 6.7L Cummings Turbo diesel. Ram is THE truck!

shaker

Bought new 2016 ram 3500 dually. Took it back to dealer with only 600km on truck. thing shakes really bad when driving at highway speeds. Dealer tech went for several rides in it and agreed that it was bad. They made a limited attempt to fix it by balancing tires and moving them around. After not being able to fix it and having the truck for 8 days I was called and told that the manufacture stated that it was a characteristic of the truck to shake. What a joke that is. total cop out and failure by Chrysler to take any responsibility for their defective product. I would not recommend buying any thing from them as they will give you no support and will do nothing for your warranty. Their position seems to be not their problem. So to bad for you.

The Smart Choice

I just purchased my 3rd Dodge/Ram 3500 in the last ten years, not because they've worn out, but because I wanted to upgrade to the newer model. Great power from the Cummins motor and reliability overall. My son and friends have even switched to Ram.
