The Ram 3500 has gone through a number of changes through the years, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is character of this fantastic truck. Though the Ram 3500 operated under Dodge during the 1980’s, the early 1990’s brought about the second generation and the official Ram 3500 badge.
The second generation launched in 1994, providing drivers with a complete redesign over the previous iteration, and given the fact that the development started in 1986 you can bet they took their time to get this absolutely perfect. In just one year, from 1993 to 1994 sales for the Dodge RAM lineup went from 78,000 to 240,000 – an obvious sign that the word was out and the Dodge RAM was the truck drivers deserved to drive. The second generation also happens to be marked as an important distinguishing year where Dodge introduced the 2500 and 3500 models officially.
A third generation launched in 2002 and ran until 2008, with impressive sales and more powerful engine options, these Cliff Wilkins-designed vehicles offered a more iconic appearance backed by a mechanical design process that ensured power and mobility without neglecting all the features that the brand had laid claim to since the ’90s. Along with the 1500, 2500, and 3500 model levels, Dodge introduced two more chassis models including the 4500 and 5500 as Class-4 and Class-5 trucks for absolutely incredible capabilities.
The current fourth generation has taken a step further towards redefining the capabilities of the modern truck – along with a recent introduction on the 1500 of an EcoDiesel, the RAM 3500 continues to step up the game and offer drivers the impressive options that stand above the rest.
