Most pickup trucks nowadays usually employ the style that, even though it is originally designed for work, it is expected that it is also fashionable. This strategy is meant to target people in the vehicle market who want to have that high performance and style in one piece. However, not all car companies share the same sentiment, which is true for those who manufactured 2016 Ram 3500 Diesel Crew Cab.
One glance says it all: This truck is designed for work. The design can somehow be compared to an updated version of your good old truck, that is, without the towing equipment.
Under the Hood
To put everyone’s mind to rest, the engine is more or less similar to those of mid-sized tow trucks. Having a V-8 engine with 385 horsepower and 900 lb-ft of torque, this one has a payload capacity of up to 7390 pounds and a whopping 31,210 pounds of maximum towing capacity, if one cares enough to tow something which weighs more than a ton. This gives this Ram a clean 40 lb-ft torque advantage over Ford’s Power Stroke V-8, which clearly states that it can tow gooseneck trailers easily. Be informed also that this truck is also available in RWD and 4WD drivetrains.
The Ram’s interior consists of heated leather seats, navigation, premium audio and Uconnect Telematics, therefore ensuring that the truck itself isn’t boring. However, it is also noticeable that whenever you drive this car, it is most certain that you’re a workaholic.
