The 2015 Ram 3500 Might Be The Best Bet In Heavy Duty Truck World
Trying to find the best heavy duty truck in US is quite simple. The choice comes down to three trucks – the Ford F-Series Super Duty, the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD (along with its sister GMC truck) and the Ram 3500. If we are to compare the Ram with all the other one thing comes to mind – American muscle. It seems that Ram engineers took a good look at what other producers are offering and created a truck that dwarfs every other. Just look at the tow rating of this monstrous thing. It tips at 30000 lbs which is more than you’d get from any other truck on the market.
Buying a truck like this is basically something only a company is supposed to do. This thing is fully committed to provide top notch capabilities for heavy duty tasks and is seems that the 2015 Ram 3500 is the best one of the lot. Available in different iterations this truck can be easily adapted for use on any construction site. The truck can be had in classic two door cab style, it can have four door crew cab with limited space for passengers or a four door mega cab with plentiful interior room for passengers and their gear. Basically, whatever job you are doing the Ram 3500 is there to fill the gaps you may have concerning transportation. The three cab designs aren’t the only personalization options for the Ram 3500. Many different wheelbase versions, bed sizes and powertrain combinations are available, while the three trim levels – Tradesman, SLT and Laramie – make up the trim level choices for the 2015 Ram 3500.
As expected, nothing much has changed compared with the previous year. Only the entry level Tradesman received better upholstery, while some elements on the outside were improved with the heavy-duty vinyl livery. Even though the Tradesman is an entry level version, it is noted that this vehicle has all the bells and whistles needed for it to be called cozy and dignified. Not only that the interior received much better materials than before, but now, we are quite sure that the 2015 Ram 3500 has a better interior than some cheaper saloons on the market. Really, even at cheapest it has equipment like automatic lights, a limited-slip rear diff, air-con, cruise control, board computer, tire pressure monitoring system, USB/iPod integration and many more. So, it is something like buying an entry level compact saloon, only it’s bigger and more powerful.
How powerful you may ask!? Well, the entry level 5.7 liter engine in it develops 383 HP, but the real deal here is the diesel inline six engine with power of 350 HP and 660 lb ft of torque. With the diesel engine and full on towing equipment, the Ram can handle up to 30000 lbs. That is quite amazing considering this thing can be equipped with things like infotainment system, back up cameras and many other elements that definitely clash with its heavy duty nature.
All in all, the 2015 Ram 3500 is one of the best bets in the world of heavy duty SUVs. It is robust, sturdy, powerful and angry, while at the same time having a nice dose of civilized manners not to be considered the hammer of the truck world.
