The release of the 2017 Dodge 3500 is upon us and we are going to see a redesigned version of the familiar Ram 3500 model.

The current version already possessed a sporty and curve design that has been considered as a draw for the brand. Many people have been interested in the new shape of the vehicle and appreciated the direction the Ram 3500 models have been heading so far. Thus the 2017 Ram 3500 is going in the same direction but ups the ante with an even expanded setup and brings back more of the same but in a larger and better way.

But the exterior is not the only part where we see some improvements. The vehicle’s inside has also been expanded and upgraded and receives an expanded array of attributes that are going to make the car luxurious and groundbreaking in certain ways. The expanded setup also adds enhanced fuel economy and less consumption which is improving with every Dodge Ram 3500 release. Consider this review as your helping guide for the upcoming model coming from Dodge.


What the greatest news about the 2017 Dodge Ram 3500 actually is considers the materials that the exterior has been built from. The model has adopted a new lightweight and fuel efficient form which means that it uses aluminum bodywork and other lightweight sources to make the exterior of the car. The model has significantly reduced its weight and has taken the path of the Ford F-150 which has pioneered this method among all the modern trucks now.

That said, there are some newly added styling made to the exterior of the car as well. For instance, the front grille has changed and now has a design which has four equal divisions and a small opening to the front which as a result make the truck seem much more elegant. Below it there is a massive looking bumper that makes the vehicle more aggressive and its addition serves to balance the elegance that the vehicle has been updated with. There are some fog lamps integrated inside the bumper while LED headlights with two types of indicators have also made it to the design of the new 2017 Dodge 3500 truck.


As far as the inside is concerned, the 2017 Dodge 3500 upgrades the inside design by adding some new types of materials and overall reshaping the luxury level of the car. As the model has taken a contemporary direction with the upgrades that concentrate on making the car much more elegant and not that rugged, the additions on the inside are pretty welcoming and make the car far more interesting that it used to be.

The shape of the cabin is essentially the same, as they decided to keep the familiar look and have just updated it in its essential parts. This means that the cabin has been largely refreshed and has been updated with soft touch materials and fine surfaces for better quality and comfort. This also means that the technology of the 2017 Ram 3500 is expanded as well and we get a full load of contemporary features which have made it to the interior of the car. The model is reshaped in a large way but it manages to maintain the design that was familiar already before.


The new 2017 Ram 3500 is going to feature two engine options and is going to bring massive power to the vehicle. The options in question are 3.6 liter turbo EcoDiesel motor for the diesel variation and the 5.7 liter V8 HEMI petroleum engine. Thanks to the power that the engines display, the towing capacity of the Dodge Ram have been increased to  9,200 pounds and are among the top in the segment. The diesel engine is good enough for displaying power of up to 240hp and 420lb-ft of torque while the HEMI motor has a capacity to output 380 HP and 400 lb-ft of torque. Both of them are linked to a 8-speed automatic gearbox as you standard option. The HEMI also has the ability to reach 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds which is another reason why this engine may be your primary option as it allows you to perform more duties and has more abilities to it.
