Finding a truck that provides unbeatable strength and power isn't always easy. That's because there are quite a few heavy-duty choices out there to choose from. One heavy-duty pickup that manages to set itself apart from the rest of the competition is the 2012 Dodge Ram 3500. Here are the top three reasons to invest in this truck.
Incredible Towing and Hauling
The Dodge Ram 255 series is known for its ability to get the job done when it involves power and strength, but the 3500 Ram series offers power and strength that is downright jaw-dropping. The 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 gets its Hulk-like strength from its powertrain – a turbocharged 6.7-liter Cummins inline-6 diesel engine paired to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. With the manual transmission, the Ram 3500 gets 350 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. While horsepower stays the same with the automatic transmission, torque explodes greatly to 800 pound-feet.
While these numbers are impressive, what's really incredible is the Ram 3500's tow rate – a monstrous 22,750 pounds when properly equipped. This poundage makes the Ram 3500 more than just heavy duty, but instead, more along the lines of extreme duty!
The Ram 3500's Cummins engine also comes with a big, rig-like exhaust brake, which provides it with additional stability and braking power when towing. This uncommon features is a great addition to a truck of its magnitude and abilities, helping to ensure better safety when equipped with a massive tow load.
The 2012 Ram 3500 comes in several trim levels, each fully-loaded with equipment and features – and if your lucky, some bonus items if equipped with an optional package. The Ram 3500's SLT trim is definitely worth a look, providing a whopping amount of, well, everything! The SLT comes with:
Full power accessories
Power-folding/heated side mirrors
Sliding rear window
Electronic trailer brake control
It also shows off nice exterior elements, like chrome trim and chrome-clad wheels.
Ram 3500 SLT trims equipped with the Outdoorsman package see a great list of off-road extras, too, like limited-slip rear differential, tow hooks, foglights, illuminated vanity mirrors and 115-volt power outlet. This package also decks out the Ram 3500 with polished alloy wheels, two-tone paint, wheel flares and body-color grille frame.
It's hard to imagine the 2012 Ram 3500 providing any more content, but it's made possible with the Laramie trim. This trim sports luxurious items, like dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating, power driver seat with memory settings, power-adjustable pedals, auto-dimming mirrors and rear parking sensors. Electronics are good, too, with a nine-speaker surround-sound audio system with digital music storage and iPod integration.
Out of all used pickup trucks on the market, the 2012 Ram 3500 offers one of the best interiors there is. Inside, you'll find soft-touch materials, attractive stitching and plush seating for good comfort. Interior storage is also generous, providing plenty of bins and pockets, plus dual glove boxes. Another interior element that stands out in the 2012 Ram 3500 is its electronics that are all user-friendly and in easy reach.
