RAM trucks are renowned for being tough and built to standards above and beyond the normal tuck. Plus, there’s just that great feeling of driving an American made RAM truck. The Heavy Duty line of RAM trucks are specially designed to take on the toughest challenges from the work site or even at home working on the latest improvement project. The strength of these trucks comes in part from the frame, which is made of heavy duty steel and utilizes eight cross beams, which gives even greater strength to the frame. That strength translates to a 17,000 pound towing capacity and can be increased to even more with available options.
Now to make sure this truck has the power to pull all that weight without huffing and puffing along the way, Dodge added a huge engine to take on the challenge. Under the hood buyers will find a 5.7 liter HEMI V8 that cranks out 383 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. This beast of an engine is matched with Dodge’s six speed automatic transmission that helps to make great use of the engine’s power and also insure that shifts are clean and crisp.
Now even though this truck is designed to take on the toughest of jobs, Dodge didn’t forget to give this big truck a great interior. To start with Dodge added all the modern amenities one would expect on a vehicle today; Bluetooth connectivity, a touchscreen display for audio and phone controls and of course a centralized information center near the gauges so drivers can keep track of how their truck is performing. And of course there is a plethora of cup holders and enough storage to accommodate anything you care to bring along. In fact, the glove box is so huge you can practically take an extra suitcase along for the ride, and just stow it in there.
RAM trucks are designed to take on just about any work challenge you can come up with and the 2013 RAM 3500 Heavy Duty certainly fits that description. The 2013 RAM 3500 Heavy Duty is priced at around $41,000 depending on any options that are chosen at the time of purchase.
