Sometimes being at the head of the class isn’t good enough. Sometimes, you still know you can perform even better. Perhaps even to a standard that doesn’t exist yet. That is clearly the case with the 2018 Ram 3500 – the most powerful truck (by far) on the market, the most powerful truck in its class, and an even more powerful truck than last year’s class-leading edition. Are you addicted to power yet? You will be. And then you’ll want more.
Let’s take a deeper look at the 2018 Ram 3500 and analyze its features.
The power in this truck is simply staggering. Its 6.7-liter turbodiesel engine blasts down the roadway with more than 400 horses under its engine and a record-breaking 930 pounds/foot of torque. That is 30 pound/foot more torque in 2018 versus 2017, which already was reaching unprecedented levels of power. It’s good to be king, but its even better to be an untouchable king.
Let’s be honest – you’re not driving this truck because of its tech and because of its cushy interior. However, the new Ram 3500 upgrades its bells and whistles in 2018 because, well, Ram wants you to be comfortable as you enjoy the power at your fingertips. With 41 inches of legroom and 66 inches of shoulderoom – come big, come tall, come all – there’s plenty of room for you.
If dainty or cute is “your thing” – then get out. This is a powerful, rugged truck that packs punch and looks the part. With broad shoulders, a masculine front grille, and powerfully angled lines, the 2018 Ram 3500 is built impress on the roadway, not the runway, but it still good regardless.
Ram 3500 pricing varies considerably depending on your tastes. To get your foot in the door could cost you as little as $34,000. However, for those who really the feel power and experience the most powerful truck on the market some Ram 3500 trims will exceed $60,000. Is it worth it? When you feel that engine rumble, we’re pretty sure you’ll think so.
How much power is too much? Trick question. There’s no such thing as too much power. When you test drive the 2018 Ram 3500, we think you’ll agree. A stunning level of horsepower, torque, and payload define this beast. It’s up to you now to tame it.
