Are you in the market for a used truck? There are many possibilities out there, from different brands and trim levels, to a range of features and equipment. But if you want a truck that's unmatched in strength and hauling capabilities, there's only one choice: the Dodge Ram 3500. Here are the top reasons to invest in this truck.
The typical pickup truck has nothing on the Dodge Ram 3500 in terms of overall strength and durability. Whether you want a truck for muddy, hazardous construction sites or adventure-filled off-road trails, the 3500 excels in a variety of rugged environments. This is in thanks to its heavy-duty platform that is built to outlast the ordinary pickup truck. Also worth noting is the 3500's tow-haul mode that optimizes transmission performance when carrying a heavy load, as well as its inclusion of heavy-duty tow hooks and a trailer harness connector.
Luxury Ride and Features
As already mentioned, the 2008 Ram 3500 is a leader in heavy-duty power and strength. But as ferocious as this truck is, it is also full of luxury in its ride quality and interior features. The 3500 may sport large dimensions, but it provides passengers with a well-cushioned ride that passengers find enjoyable. It also features a very effective steering system that makes it easy to maneuver despite its large size.
The 3500 shows off a long list of luxury features, too, that boost its appeal even further. Found in upper trim levels of the 3500, you'll find content, such as:
- 8.4” touchscreen display
- Uconnect infotainment system
- Rearview camera
- 10-speaker audio system
- Ventilated front seats
- RamBox cargo management system
Intrigued by the many perks of a diesel engine? Then the Dodge Ram 3500 will serve you well. Under the hood of the 3500 is a 6.7-liter Cummings diesel engine. As soon as your foot presses the throttle, you will instantly feel the thrust of the engine as it roars 400 horsepower and a monstrous 865 pound-feet of torque. Along with its mega power, this diesel engine also provides huge strength with a maximum tow rate of 30,000 pounds – a number that is unmatched by any other truck.
Abundant Interior Space
Trucks may be known for their spacious cargo beds, but that doesn't mean the interior can't provide some room, too. The abundant interior space found in the Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab models is proof of this. Mega Cab models provide ample room for all passengers, especially those in the rear, and they also feature four doors for easy access for all.
Nowadays, manual transmissions are becoming a thing of the past. In fact, most vehicles don't even offer a manual transmission at all anymore. But for those that love the fun a manual provides, you can still find it in the 2008 Ram 3500. The 3500 offers a six-speed manual gearbox with a clutch that is both responsive and user-friendly. Not only does this make driving the 3500 a breeze, but considering it is the only newer used truck that offers a manual gearbox, it is one of the most popular and best-selling trucks there is.
