2016 Ram 3500 - RamDealerNY Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

The first 2016 Ram 3500 has rolled off the line at the Saltillo Truck assembly Plant.  In true fashion for this monster of a heavy-duty truck, it is a Mega Cab Laramie Longhorn.

The new 2016 Ram 3500 offers the best towing capacity out there.  It has more torque than any other tuck in its class.  It is a truck center around providing those that need something heavy-duty.

The word first came out about the capability of the 2016 Ram 3500 a few weeks ago in June.  The major advertising point was the massive 900 lb-ft of torque.  That is the most torque ever offered in a mass-production vehicle.  The 3500 accomplishes this with the 2016 Cummins 6.7-liter.  That makes it so the 3500 can tow up to 30,000 pounds.

For the hardcore truck fans out there that want something hardcore, you can start getting excited because the 2016 Ram 3500 is getting out there.

Would You Want a Ram 1500 Hellcat?

Ram 1500 Hellcat - RamDealerNY

The Hellcat is the most talked about thing in the muscle car world.  What it has done to the Charger and Challenger is certainly impressive.  If you’re someone who cares about performance, there is a reason why it is the talk of the auto industry.  That brings a question to mind, however, of just what other vehicles should Dodge be looking to include in the Hellcat name?  Could a Ram 1500 get the Hellcat treatment?

It is something that Pickuptrucks.com certainly wants.  The article makes it clear they love the hell out of the Hellcat (pun intended) and would love to see that engine used in a Ram truck.  “…the Challenger Hellcat starts at just less than $65,000 including destination.  Sure, we’d rather pay that kind of money for a Ram 3500 Longhorn with a Cummins engine, but there are a few things that a Hellcat can do that nothing else can.  Which begs the question: Why is this powertrain not in a Ram 1500 SS yet?”

Why indeed, it would be interesting to see what the engineers at Dodge could come up with if they put their Hellcat knowledge and power into a Ram truck.  The article continues that the parts and pieces are already available to the Ram parent company and it would just take some time and engineering, but it certainly sounds plausible.  I guess the real question is if truck drivers would be interested in having a 1500 Hellcat.  Is it something that sounds good on paper or is there a genuine market for it?

What do you think?  Would you be interested in a Ram 1500 Hellcat?

Ram 2500 & 3500

Just one look at the powerhouse that is the Ram Heavy Duty Truck shows why it’s considered a legend in its class. It’s a clear sign in its design that it’s all about strength in form and features. It all begins with the big rig styling. With both the Ram 2500 and 3500, these trucks look to do more than impress you with numbers on a sheet of paper telling how much they can carry. The most obvious aspect of the exterior is the signature Ram grille which comes in either chrome or the body color. The steel and detailed hood with louvers on each side is used to hold in the possible engines.

For the Ram 3500, you have the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel, considered by many to be a staple for its unrivaled power and the ability to tackle the toughest of jobs. It has 350 horsepower with 800 pounds of torque showing how it earned this status. For the 2012 models of the Heavy Duty Trucks, in an effort to lower costs and give hassle free maintenance, Ram includes a class-exclusive NOX Absorber Catalyst. What this system does is regulate diesel emissions in line with EPA standards. You won’t need to worry at all about having to monitor your diesel exhaust fluid because of this.

If you’re worried all this was efficiency came at a sacrifice of comfort, don’t worry at all. The Ram 2500 and 3500 were made to be driven. The Laramie Longhorn Edition has something very unique in the form of laser-etch stitching on the leather. For the person who takes the Ram Heavy Duty to the job, the seat fabric is designed to be stain, odor, and static resistant to make sure that you have a quick and easy cleanup when the day is done. An added bonus that its effect doesn’t diminish with time. Other bonus features are a heat steering wheel, dual zone temperature controls, and soft-touch instrument panels.

Ram wants to make sure that you’re protected driving to work or for the family by having 25 different safety and security features. Both the 2500 and the 3500 come standard with a set of advance multistage airbags, from the driver and front passenger to the side curtain ones. In addition to that, the safety cage of the trucks are built to endure punishment. This is because they have dynamic front crumple zones and beams built into the doors for side impacts. All this helps to deflect and absorb forces of an impact should an accident occur.

Another highlight of purchasing a Ram 2500 or 3500 for yourself is the Ram has ensured that these trucks are built to last. Durability is a word that means something to the design team, one that they made sure to test rigorously. That means that whatever your Ram Truck is meant to do, be it your choice of work vehicle or just getting the family to the Adirondacks, it’s going to spend more time on the road than in the shop. In order to make that claim, the testers at Ram have put the trucks through their paces in tests that range from 120 degrees for a desert and -20 for arctic climates. The models also include corrosion-resistant hydro formed frames. The Ram 2500 or 3500 will be with you for a long time.
