2017 RAM 3500 at Junction Auto Sales for Chardon, OH

The 2017 RAM 3500 is an amazing choice for the heavy-duty pickup truck segment, and you would be wise to entertain it as an option! New for 2017, it has a 5-micron air filter for the cabin, plus, on Limited, Laramie Longhorn, and Laramie models there is a 6.4-liter HEMI engine installed as standard. There are compelling grounds for why the 2017 RAM 3500 regularly scores titles like 'The Most Capable Three-Quarter & Single-Ton Pickups', 'Highest Snow-Plow Rating', 'Most Interior Space w/Ram Mega Cab' and TFL Truck's '2017 Gold Hitch Award: Heavy Duty Diesel Towing'! The RAM 3500 lives for worker transportation, towing, gear hauling, and terribly difficult environmental conditions. Bilstein monotube shocks are standard on Laramie Longhorn and Limited 4x4 models.

Under the 3500's Hood

The front end acquires tri-link coil springs, a solid axle, as well as a stabilizer bar. A part-time 4WD variant is possible with a 2-speed transfer case (& low-range gearing), or alternately, rear-wheel drive becomes standard. The Tradesman brings its manual 4WD transfer case, and all other models are accompanied by an electronic version. The 3500 rocks a 383-hp 5.7-liter V8 engine put typically with a 6-speed automatic transmission powering through with up to 400 lb-ft of torque, a payload maximum of 4,042-pounds, and up to 17,480-lbs of towing maximum. The Ram 3500 has an extra air suspension system in addition to a rear leaf spring system (Hotchkiss). A 6.4-liter V8 is an option to purchase with 410 horsepower and a healthy 429 lb-ft of torque (with the six-speed automatic). The towing maximum for this setup is 16,520-lbs, with a payload limit of 7,390-pounds. The 2017 Ram 3500 can also house a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 engine and an election between 3 potential matching transmissions. One transmission is a standard 6-speed automatic and has 370 horsepower to oversee an incredible 800 lb-ft of torque. After that is the 6-speed manual transmission (purchasable) that has near 350-hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. The final transmission option is the HD Aisin 6-speed automatic (obtainable) which uses 385-hp and an unbelievable 900 lb-feet of torque, for a gigantic towing capacity of 31,210 pounds (with a fifth-wheel truckbed coupling). Know as well that with the 6.7-L diesel engine comes the 'smart exhaust engine brake' to help control the descent of a vehicle on a downward slope, as well as reduce brake wear and tear. If you have hauled heavy downhill loads, you get why this feature is good!

Design of RAM 3500

The six main models of the 2017 RAM 3500 are the Big Horn (or named 'Lone Star' if in Texas), Laramie, Tradesman, SLT, Laramie Longhorn, and the Limited. Item options are lengthy, and select ones are possible as you go up the ladder of models, like a truckbed camera, off-road tires, exceptional audio fidelity, a power sunroof, a load-leveling rear air suspension, and the one-and-only RamBox. The Rambox is created by 2 drain-able yet rain-proof bins within the truckbed's that sides are lockable (option). All models can have double rear wheels (dually) in place of the standard single wheels, and, a sliding rear window, a spray-in bedliner, keyless entry/ignition, and rounded chrome side-steps. Crew Cabs are gettable with 1 (of two) bed lengths, plus, there are 3 cab arrangements for 2017 on every model.  The Tradesman grade model is standard with cruise control, and a tilt-only steering wheel, all other models gain a telescoping tilt-wheel steering column. The Mega Cab has a 6.4-foot bed and the 'Regular Cab' 3500 is standard with an 8.2-ft truckbed. In the Laramie trim and up, an 8.4-in touchscreen with GPS navigation is an option. The Tradesman and SLT trims can be purchased in 3 cab versions: the 5- to 6-passenger Crew Cab, the deluxe 5- to 6-passenger Mega Cab, and the 3-passenger Regular Cab. All models have as standard UConnect infotainment systems, with a 5- or 8.4-inch display. The optional cargo-view camera lets the driver easily perceive the truck bed cargo as long as it's paired with the optional 8.4-inch Uconnect display. Also of note, a 50,000-PSI hydroformed steel frame brings in extra cross-members for robustness as well as hydroformed front/rear rail contours that attain a prime placement of suspension pieces for stability.

What does the rear Auto-Level Air Suspension do?

The class-exclusive obtainable rear Auto-Level Air Suspension achieves level loads regardless of payload or road conditions. One button gets drivers between two ride height choices: Normal or Alternate Ride Height. This allows alignment with a trailer, among other things.


There's an enormous push for good safety on the RAM 3500: certain models can have a remote anti-theft alarm, rear parking sensors, and a standard rear-view camera. Standard items on all 3500 models are electronic roll mitigation, Electronic Stability Control, Brake Assist, Hill-start Assist, Ready Alert Braking, all-speed traction control, Rain Brake Support, and trailer-sway control.
