What powers this class-leader?

It has a choice of two gas engines or a diesel engine: the available 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel, the optional Heavy-Duty 6.4L, as well as the standard 5.7L HEMI V8 engine. Available Class-Exclusive Rear Auto-Level Air Suspension. The 6.7L turbo diesel gets 385-hp and 930 lb.-ft. of torque, the 5.7L gets 383-hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque, and the 6.4L sees 410-hp (370-hp in Mega Cab setup) and 429 lb.-ft. of torque. A manual 6-speed manual is available with the only the 6.7L diesel engine, although there is also a choice of 2 different 6-speed automatic transmissions for that engine: the 68RFE and the AS69RC. The other two engines will be fitted with a 66RFE 6-speed automatic transmission.

How does the design support the typical uses for this type of truck?

The Regular Cab can have seats for either two or three, the Crew & Mega Cabs seat three people up front and either two or three passengers in the back. That said, the Mega Cab truckbed length is static at 6-ft. 4-in whether 2WD or 4WD. Similarly, the Regular Cab naturally has one bed length for either drivetrain, and that comes in at 8-ft. The Crew Cab can have either of those truckbed sizes no matter the drivetrain system. The rear suspension is a Hotchkiss leaf spring and solid axle, with an option on the 4WD version for supplemental airbag element. The front suspension is composed of a 3-link with track bar, coil springs, a stabilizer bar, and a solid axle. All of this, paired with the Max Tow Package, makes being able to haul huge payloads and tow capabilities possible, never mind safe and straightforward. The Max Tow package comes with fifth-wheel towing capabilities of 30,000 pounds via a Mopar fifth-wheel hitch, a fifth-wheel/gooseneck prep package, the air suspension, and a cargo view camera. The 3500 has the most interior space in the class with the Mega Cab, but the Crew Cab is specifically designed for the rest of the crew with lots of storage space and passenger room. The RamBox system is in the truckbed and is lit, lockable, tough, and drainable! Also possible in the truckbed is a cargo bed extender/divider, LED bed-lighting, and an aerodynamic tonneau cover! There is an available upfitter switch interface which lets owners easily add external features securely like plows and tow lighting, and additionally, there is standard rear under-seat storage on the Crew and Mega cabs. Also look for available power exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals, wheel-to-wheel side steps, and even an Electronic Range Select that allows drivers to pick the gear that they prefer for downshifting and engine braking, which is excellent for trailering up and down hilly roads. In the huge cabin, there is also available 8.4-inch full-color touchscreen (5" otherwise) that transforms your 3500 into a mobile wired office. The Uconnect 4C assists drivers, plus there is Android Auto/Apple CarPlay support, HD Radio, and 4G LTE capability that all sounds great on the nine optional Alpine speakers with subwoofer!

Is safety incorporated into the design at all for 2018?

The 2018 RAM 3500 utilizes hydroformed front and rear rail contours for smart locations for suspension components and mounts, plus, has a 50,000-PSI steel frame. All cab configurations contain as standard at least 6 airbags. A backup camera is but one piece of the comprehensive ParkSense Rear Park Assist System, and on top of that, the 6.7L turbo diesel engine uses a smart exhaust engine brake to enable smooth braking under heavy loads/inclines (without wearing down brake pads as quickly). Other excellent safety features are all available in the 2018's wheelhouse as well, like Electronic Stability Control, Sentry Key, Variable Intermittent Windshield Wipers, Speed Control, and even a DOT Certified Roadside Safety Kit!
