2017 RAM 3500 ? The Work Truck

2017 RAM 3500 ? The Work Truck

Trucks are designed and manufactured to work and to assist the owner in completing the job on a daily basis. No matter if it is hauling hay on the farm, hauling a load of materials to the job site, or the boat to the lake on the weekend.  Trucks still serve today for these purposes and may more. They have become not only a method of transporting and pulling. They have become a way of life. They provide the power needed for the heaviest job. This power has improved with the diesel engine and with the advancement in technology through the years. 

Superior Performance 

There are a lot of manufactures which claim they are the one to do the job by providing superior performance and better fuel economy than the early trucks. When the smoke clears there is only one truck that stands at the front. The 2017 RAM is an award winning truck and is in greater demand by business owners and individuals who drive trucks for work and pleasure. Meets all of the durability requirements the 2017 RAM 3500 Truck is proven and ready. Whether it is the mountains of the Western States, the dusty plains of Texas, or the frigid winters on the Northern States, the RAM truck has proven itself not only through ridged testing by RAM, but by the proud owners who day in and day out ask it to "Get the Job Done". It has met and surpassed all expectations.

RAM stands behind the 2017 RAM 3500 starting with an unsurpassed power train that does the job, with a high-strength hydroformed 50 KSI steel frame. Eight cross members provide maximum strength for hauling heavy loads. It even includes an additional frame cross member to provide addition support for an available factory installed Gooseneck or fifth Wheel Prep Package to pull trailers.

The front suspension provides the ride you are looking for with a three-link front suspension developed for a Best-in-Class 14,000 lb GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) and an exceptional Best-in Class 37,000 lb GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating), a wider frame and larger stabilizer bar the front-link front suspension provides the custom ride and vehicle control that out-classes all others. 

Put It All Together

The interior has been refined for comfort, ease of access, and with a lot of storage. Storage under the rear seats provide ample space for power tools, extension cards and other items that need to be locked up from prying eyes and contained in a dry environment.

Additional features to make the work day easier include Electronic Range Select. This feature is exceptional when hauling trailers by providing a manual or electronically option gear option for downshifting and engine breaking.

Trailer Break Control. This dashboard mounted selection allows the driver to automatically or manually operate the electronic breaks on trailers that are equipped.

There is always a need to connect external features to the truck electrical system. The Upfitter Switches is an interface to connect a variety of inputs and output devices like tow lights or plows.

How an engine performs is what makes a truck superior to all others. The 2017 RAM 3500 has three choices of engines to choose from. These choices are determined by the needs of the owner and the requirements placed on the truck during its everyday work.
