2020 Ram 3500 - Now in Milton
Ram trucks are famed for their excellent blend of reliability and capability, and their 3500 is no exception to this rule. Awarded the '2020 Truck of the Year' title by Motortrend, fighting off rivals from Ford, Chevrolet, and others, the Ram 3500 is a one-ton truck that's built to handle all the heavy-duty tasks you could throw at it.
Here are the main features to look out for with the 2020 Ram 3500 truck for sale here at our dealership.
Choice of Heavy Duty Powertrains
A truck this size needs plenty of juice under the hood, and even at the entry-level the 3500 delivers in spades. The standard 6.4L V8 engine pushes out a healthy 410 horsepower and 429lb-ft of torque, driving all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission to deliver an assured level of performance and handling.
A similar diesel option is available, with a 6.7L I-6 turbo diesel engine dropping the ponies a little to 370hp but pushing the torque up to an impressive 850lb-ft. All this power is fed to the four wheels through an optimized six-speed automatic transmission.
However, the star of the 3500 powertrain show is the mighty 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This configuration delivers fully 400 horsepower, along with an astonishing 1,000lb-ft of torque. Not only is this an impressive amount of power, but it's the first time a one-ton truck has hit the magic 1,000lb-ft torque level, making the 2020 Ram 3500 the best in its class.
Payload and Towing Capacity
The solid engineering of the Ram 3500 puts all this power to good use, with great capability figures throughout the range. The standard engine allows a maximum payload of 1,470kg and a towing capacity of over 6,500kg.
The mid-range engine pushes the towing capacity up to a generous 8,972kg, but for the heaviest jobs, it's the high-torque powertrain that really impresses. Choose this powertrain and you'll be rewarded with a truck that can carry 3,484kg in the pickup bed, and haul a mammoth 15,920kg in the trailer behind.
Interior and Technology
Depending on the cab size chosen, the Ram 3500 can seat three, five, or six adults comfortably, offering plenty of legroom in every case. And importantly for a hard-working truck, the seating offers plenty of support along with comfortable cloth upholstery.
An infotainment touchscreen is included in every 3500, with a small 5" offering at the Tradesman level rising through an 8.4" screen on higher trims to a whopping 12" display on the Limited model.
Most trims include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to go along with the Bluetooth connection and USB ports, while the standard 6-speaker sound system can be upgraded to a premium 17-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system.
