Powertrains and Efficiency
Thunderous power and unrivalled capability come as standard with the 2016 Ram 3500, and there are even two more available engines to let you take things even further.
Power options include:
5.7L HEMI VVT V8: Even as standard, the 5.7L V8 is able to leverage an output of up to 383 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, and it is paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission system that has been designed specifically to cope with the heavy-duty requirements made by 3500 owners.
6.4L HEMI VVT V8: This legendary V8 boasts the largest displacement and most power of any V8 gas engine in its class – you’ll have up to 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque to play with. At the same time, FuelSaver Multi-Displacement Technology (MDS) and a 6-speed automatic transmission are used to optimize efficiency.
6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel: Offering Maple Creek and Brooks drivers an unprecedented 385 horsepower and Best-in-Class 900 lb-ft of torque, the Turbo Diesel is in a league of its own, and even offers Best-in-Class recommended oil change intervals of up to 24,000 km and an unrivaled 5-year/160,000-km diesel Powertrain Limited Warranty. You’ll be able to choose from an AISIN 6-speed automatic, Segment-Exclusive 6-speed manual, and the standard 6-speed automatic transmission systems.
That kind of power beneath the hood clearly results in a superior drive across tough terrain, but it also allows you to haul more and carry heavier than the competition. Each engine is a magnificent working machine.
