Big, bad pickup trucks don’t come any bigger or badder than the 2017 RAM 3500. It’s a monster. Our diesel-powered test vehicle, a Limited Mega Cab 4x4 dually, was over 20 feet long, packed 900 lb-ft of torque and could tow over 30,000 lbs.
It’s no wonder Americans are buying these massively capable monoliths at record rates and America’s automakers continue to improve the breed, designing, engineering and building bigger, better and more efficient trucks.
Built in Saltillo, Mexico, the 2017 Ram 3500 delivers the power, comfort and capability heavy-duty truck buyers expect. It competes head to head with its domestic cross town rivals, the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD, GMC Sierra 3500HD and the Ford F-350 Super Duty. The Nissan Titan XD doesn’t play at this level of size and capability, and Toyota doesn’t make a heavy duty version of its Tundra.
