The RAM 3500's Technology Features

Three-link Front Suspension

Let looks what the Technology Features the RAM 3500 has and it has plenty of them. First & most important is the 3 link front suspension. It was developed for the 4x2 and 4x4 models of the RAM 3500. This one piece of equipment plays a major role in why the RAM's Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (14,000 lbs) and Gross Combined Weight Rating (39,100 LBS) are so high. In combination with the RAM 3500's wider frame and large stabilizer bar, the 3-link suspension utilizes better positioned springs and higher quality shocks to aid in providing more ride comfort to the driver, especially when towing or hauling a large load

Trailer Harness Connector

This makes it easy to connect any trailer's or equipment's electrical system with the standard trailer harness connector.

Heavy-Duty Hooks:

The RAM 3500 also features hooks that are directly mounted to the frame. They offer a 100% solid grip and can aid you in any tasks that will require some heavy towing or pulling.

RAM Active Air:

This system is paired with the Cummins 6.7L Turbo Engine. At its core it is a computer controlled valve system in the engine's air filter box that automatically decides where it gets air from. This allows the engine to keep operating at optimal performance in any weather scenario.

New 2019 Ford F-350 Interior

RAM 3500 Vs Ford F-350: Safety

Most people are surprised by the luxury and style that accompany the interiors of today's heavy duty trucks. Both trucks in question, feature leather-trimmed seating and infotainment systems, though, in our opinion, the Uconnect system found in the RAM 3500 is easier and more intuitive than the Ford's system.

New 2018 RAM 3500 Safety Features

Other standard features in each include wireless phone hookup, power mirrors, premium sound system, satellite radio, power-steering and power windows. The RAM 3500 does stand out, however, for offering standard heated driver's seat, driver and passenger lumbar adjustments, seat memory and power driver and passenger seats.

RAM 3500 Vs Ford F-350: Exterior Looks

Both behemoths are well-styled to perform their work truck duties, as each features six wheels to facilitate towing and hauling. Both also include standard fog lamps, integrated turn signal mirrors, front tow hooks and privacy glass, and boast the rugged, durable styling you would expect of their respective breeds.

There are many differences to focus on but we'd like to point a couple in particular. The 2018 RAM 3500 comes with standard 18-inch polished aluminum wheels. The Ford has slightly different wheels, they are only 17 inch polished aluminum. In addition to that, the RAM 3500 gives to its owners, a standard bed liner. On the other hand, the Ford F-350 will give you a bed liner, but it's going to cost extra. One last thing we'd like to bring to your attention is the actual width of each truck. The Ford F-350 is much wider than the RAM 3500, so finding a wide enough parking spot can be challenging especially in smaller areas or parking lots.
