Below, you’ll find our 2019 Ram 3500 review packed with information about what this robust pickup can do for you. Will it soon be making an appearance in your driveway? Let’s jump in and find out.
Ram 3500 Overview
When it comes to the 2019 Ram 3500, there are a couple of specs and features that are worth mentioning right off the bat.
First, there’s the 1,000 lb-ft of torque that you’ll have at your disposal with its 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel engine. Such an engine can allow you to tow up to 35,100 pounds, making both work and play a breeze. On the other hand, if you decide to go with a gas engine, you’ll have access to the largest gas payload in its class at 7,680 pounds.
In terms of tech, its 12-inch touchscreen is the largest offered in a heavy-duty truck. This touchscreen also features split-screen capabilities, allowing you to safely multitask while on the go. Finally, the Ram 3500 comes in five trims, so you’ll have the power of choice at your fingertips. They are:
- Big Horn / Lone Star
- Laramie Longhorn

We’ve already mentioned this heavy-duty truck’s heavy-duty towing power, but what makes it so strong?
Auto-Level Rear Air Suspension. With this feature, you can adjust your rear suspension to match the load that you’re towing, the road that you’re driving on, and a number of factors that are most important to you.
High-Strength Steel Frame. Its frame was reengineered with 98.5% high-strength steel and lightweight aluminum. That’s how the 2019 Ram 3500 has been able to reduce its frame weight by around 40 pounds.
Upsized Towing Hardware. Even its factory-installed rear-axle structural crossmember is ready to work.
Plus, the demands of heavy towing are even built into the technologies that you’d expect to find on any sort of vehicle. For example, its available 360° Surround View Camera includes a Trailer Reverse Guidance View and its Tire Pressure Monitoring System offers an available Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring feature.
Functional Exterior Engineering
When you’ve got a truck that’s built to work hard, everything ends up contributing to that goal. That’s why the Ram 3500’s exterior was designed to be as functional and as durable as possible. Check it all out:
- LED Bed Lighting
- Power Running Boards
- RamBox® Cargo Management System with 115-Volt Outlet
- Available Trailer Tow Mirrors with Heat, Power Convex, Memory, and Spotlight
And that’s not even covering its Dampened and Power Release Tailgate, which is one of the easiest-to-open and easiest-to-close tailgates on the market. You can even do it via your key fob!
Last, but certainly not least, depending on which trim level you pick, you can choose among 15 different available wheel designs. One of these is 20-inch polished aluminum rims, which might be the most impressive.
