2016 Ram 3500

Melville and Indian Head drivers understand that no vehicle dominates its segment like the 2016 Ram 3500, which offers best-in-class towing and torque. Made to perform the toughest tasks at the highest level, this is a full-sized truck that boasts unyielding power from one of three state-of-the-art engines, the 2016 Ram 3500 towing numbers are incredible:

  • Best-in-class towing of up to 14,157 kg
  • Best-in-class payload of up to 3,352 kg

It also boasts a best-in-class Gross Combined Weight Rating of 17,736 kg.

Here’s a quick overview of the engine options the Ram 3500 offers.

The 5.7L HEMI VVT V8

This heavy-duty HEMI V8 has quickly become a legend in its own time, and it allows 2016 Ram 3500 drivers to command up to an impressive 383 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.

That output is mated to a sophisticated 6-speed automatic transmission system that features cast-aluminum cylinder heads and a deep-skirt cast-iron block to ensure optimal reliability, durability, and longevity, and has been specifically engineered to cope with the massive demands made by a Ram truck.


With the available 6.4L V8, Melville and Indian Head drivers will receive the largest-displacement and most powerful V8 gas engine in its class — and that’s really saying something.

Hitting the gas will place up to 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque at your disposal, and efficiency has been improved thanks to the addition of FuelSaver Multi-Displacement Technology (MDS), which deactivates 4 cylinders while cruising or idling. It features the same transmission as the 5.7L engine.

6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel

Turning to diesel power will bring more than fuel-economy and reliability — drivers will be able to look forward to up to 385 hp and a best-in-class 900 lb-ft of torque.

Further benefits include best-in-class recommended oil change intervals of up to 24,000 km and an unsurpassed 5-year/160,000-km diesel Powertrain Limited Warranty. There are even three transmissions to choose from: AISIN 6-speed automatic, segment-exclusive 6-speed manual, and the standard 6-speed automatic.

The 2016 Ram 3500 Towing Abilities Show That It’s an Unstoppable Machine

You won’t find a heavy-duty truck out there that isn’t capable of great things, but neither will you find one that can live up to the bar set by the 2016 Ram 3500. To check it out in in person and arrange a test-drive near Indian Head and Melville, just visit Knight Weyburn CDJR today.
