Truck Specific Amenities

Depending on which trim you choose, your RAM 3500 can have the following features standard or available. We love the Cargo-View Camera that gives you a peek at what's in the truck bed and it's displayed on a large 8.4-inch touchscreen. There's also the Class-Exclusive auto-level air suspension that makes sure you stay level, no matter the road and cargo conditions.

For those who regularly perform hard jobs with the RAM 3500, the RamBox® cargo management system is a Class-Exclusive feature worth ponying up for. There's space for your equipment and smaller items, you can drain out certain compartments, and there's LED lighting for nighttime usage.


Creature Comforts

The RAM 3500 is available in several trims (Tradesman, SLT, Big Horn, Laramie, Laramie Longhorn, and Limited).  Starting at the Big Horn you get a handsome selection of amenities, like the Uconnect 4C with the 8.4-inch touchscreen that can display Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™, power adjusting seats, and a comfortable leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Limited adds navigation, high-grade Natura leather seats and real wood trim, and a unique chrome grille. These add-ons don't necessarily increase the performance aspect of the truck...but they make driving one extra enjoyable.
