2016 Ram 3500 Review

The Ram full-size pickup has been known for its smooth ride and remarkable suspension for years, and last year's model added a number of design adjustments to increase engine torque and tow capability. This year, the 2016 Ram 3500 brings up the torque to a whopping 900 lb-ft, said to be the most torque of any consumer vehicle.

Buyers in Butler, Kinnelon, and Bloomingdale can head down to Precision CJDR to learn more.


The 2016 Ram 3500 comes in several configurations. The cargo bed is available in 8-foot or 6-foot-4-inch lengths. The two-door Regular Cab is the standard model, and four-door Crew Cab and Mega Cab options are also available.


The standard 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine can be swapped out for one of two Cummins turbodiesel engines, the 6.4-liter V8 or the 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel inline-6. This last option is available with either a manual or an automatic transmission as well as the new version with 900 lb-ft torque, which is only available on the 2016 Ram 3500. This brings its towing capacity to 31,210 lbs, equivalent to just over 15 tons.


The 2016 Ram 3500 has a redesigned dashboard and center console, with Front Park Assist and rear cameras for added visibility in tight spaces. The touchscreen control is paired with redundant physical climate control and audio system buttons for added convenience.

Standard equipment includes a first-rate driver information center, a six-speaker sound system with a USB port, Bluetooth, air conditioning, and cruise control. The 10-speaker Alpine sound system, touchscreen navigation, and voice controls combine with its touchscreen and voice recognition. The audio is considered some of the best in its class, and the dashboard is designed with ease and space.

Power-folding trailer-tow mirrors and a rearview camera are also available, and some models come standard with an integrated trailer brake.

Standard seating is a 40/20/40 split bench seat in the front. Higher trim models include luxury features such as a heated steering wheel and climate-controlled seats and leather upholstery. The Crew Cab has a set of underfloor storage spaces, and the Mega Cab has sufficient space for reclining rear seats.


The 2016 Ram 3500 retains the superior rear suspension system that gives the vehicle a uniquely smooth and quiet ride. The rear axle has two- and four-wheel options, and a rear air suspension system is now available for both arrangements. This year's Ram 3500 is available in seven trims, from the Tradesman and SLT up through the luxuriously equipped Laramie versions.

The 2016 Ram 3500 is a step up even from last year's impressive version, exceeding previous models in engine torque and towing capacity without sacrificing the features that make it among the most comfortable work trucks available.
