The 3500 is the biggest, toughest and most capable pickup Ram has to offer. This car has achieved a huge success over the last few years and that is the reason why Ram has decided to upgrade the design.
Ram turned his attention to the chassis, that was engineered to provide bigger roll stiffness for more confident, planted handling in turns. The other improving is in the point of dynamics with reciprocating ball steering system that provides better on-center feel. There is also an optional rear air suspension system, both single- and dual-rear wheel configurations, which is unique among heavy duty pickups, the setup makes up for an even more comfortable ride and includes a self-leveling function that adjusts the ride height to compensate for a payload or attached trailer.
Hopefully these tweaks are enough for a demandable customer. Exterior touches include a body-color front fascia, chrome bumpers, 17-inch polished aluminum wheels and no badges save for a small italicized block-letter “Limited” on the tailgate and the traditional Ram logo.
