Class-leading towing and hauling abilities make it a force on the worksite and at home, while a variety of options and packages ensure it is perfect for daily usage.

Works Hard, Plays Hard
From the outside, there is a clear family resemblance between the 2016 Ram 3500 and its smaller brother. From the crosshair grille at the front through to the swelling wheel flares and tall sides, the exterior bodywork is nearly the same. The 3500 has similar muscular shoulders as well, even more so when the option for
dual rear wheels is chosen. Exterior trim comes in matte black, body colour, or chrome, depending on your choice, while there are a dozen exterior colours and over a dozen wheel styles to choose from. Two different box sizes are available – the longer 2.4-meter box is standard on the Regular Cab and available with the Crew Cab, while the 1.9-meter box is standard on the Mega Cab and available with the Crew Cab. Cargo management can be done with the RamBox System, a waterproof, remotely lockable, illuminated organization system that is perfect for dealing with tools, sporting equipment, and other smaller pieces of cargo. It comes with a cargo bed rail system with adjustable cleats as well, and you can add a spray-in bedliner for protection from scrapes and dents. LED lights illuminate the cargo box for working in the dark. Side steps are in chrome, black, or body colour, and make it easy to get in and out of the cabin or the bed. Choose the Snowplow Prep Package for heavy-duty winter work, or a 5th Wheel/Gooseneck Trailer Towing Prep Package for the ultimate towing capabilities. Heated mirrors prevent ice build-up in the winter, while a power sunroof provides sun and a breeze in the summer.
Choose from the two-door Regular or four-door Mega or Crew cabs, depending on your passenger needs. Anywhere from two to six passengers can fit into the 2016 Ram 3500, with upholstery including durable and easy-cleaning vinyl and luxurious leather. The passenger cabin is roomy, with over 1,000 millimeters of headroom and legroom, along with 1,600 millimeters of hip and shoulder room, in all seating positions. Upholstery is accented by a number of trims, including durable hard plastics and handsome Argento wood accents. Seating, as well as the leather-wrapped steering wheel, can both be heated for added wintertime comfort. A number of multimedia systems are available, with the Uconnect 8.4 AN Multimedia System being the top of the range. This system features an 8.4-inch LCD colour touch screen that sits at the top of the centre stack, within easy reach for the driver. It also has voice activation and Bluetooth hands-free capabilities, so you can keep your full attention on the road while controlling the audio, making a phone call, and more. For directions, a navigation system is available, while USB ports and auxiliary jacks increase the variety of media you can use.
