The RAM truck of the year looks set to be unbeatable Power Wagon in Dodge’s 3500 range which has revealed itself as one of the fiercest upcoming vehicles on the market. The 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 is one of the most anticipated trucks of 2016 as previous versions of this chunky ride are still one of the bestselling within its class and Dodge are making sure that it stays that way by keeping on top of their game with this latest design.
2017 Dodge Ram 3500 – Exterior and Interior Design
Possibly the most aggressive-looking finish yet, this mean machine goes above and beyond the 2016 model with its solid matte black trim and grill which is much more aesthetically pleasing than the more garish use of chrome and red on the previous design. The wheels will also be larger as part of an elaborate redesign to bring out the aggressive nature of the SUV. The 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 also comes equipped with blacked-out headlights and smaller but sharper and more rectangular tail lights that keep it looking as ferocious as possible. With its thick 33” tires, the car is perfect for off-roading and is big enough to wade its way through a hefty amount of mud without the performance being affected. The 2017 model will be released in 6 different trims as usual, with buyers able to choose between the SLT, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, Tradesman, Big Horn, and Outdoorsman. If you’re looking for high-class extra features like in-vehicle connectivity system Uconnect’ then the Longhorn is for you or if you prefer a more stripped down ride with a regular cabin then the Tradesman will be a more appealing choice. All versions of the Ram 3500 come with leather seats, entertainment and navigation systems and Bluetooth accessibility.
2017 Dodge Ram 3500 – Engine and Performance
Despite other truck brands often stealing the limelight when it comes to off-road performance, the 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 is tipped to deliver excellently on a range of terrain, with built-in hill descent control helping its 6.7 litre engine tackle even the most daring of off-road challenges. With a newly perfected electronically disconnecting front sway bar attached to the vehicle, the new 2017 Ram 3500 puts a lot of power into its control, making it easier to manoeuvre through the toughest of environments. Like the previous generations, the truck comes with an excellent pulling and towing capacity thanks to the combination of its hefty size and the inclusion of a 12,000 lb capacity warn winch in the design. Maintaining the size and girth that the model is known for, the 2017 Dodge RAM 3500 bears little difference to previous generations in terms of its speed and agility as it still has a similar maximum speed of little over 100 mph and an acceleration rate of 0-60 mph in 8.6 seconds.
2017 Dodge Ram 3500 – Price and Release Date
