Electronic Vehicle Information Center
Easy to read and packed with information, the standard EVIC gives trailer brake control info and lets you know when the engine is in fuel saver mode (both, if equipped). It also gives you the temperature and more. So, yes, the future is now.
Temperature Control Seats and Heated Steering Wheel
Designed to take the edge off the weather, the available heated and ventilated front seats let the driver and passenger warm up or cool down quickly. Each seat's comfort settings can be individually controlled. You can also wrap your hands around the available heated steering wheel during cold weather. It's one Ram feature you'll never want to let go of.
Dual-zone Temperature Control

Equipped with a choice of engines, including the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine or the powerful 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel, Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks offer the best powertrains in the industry and are known for their reliability. The 5.7-liter HEMI engine offers an amazing combination of power and fuel economy with 390 horsepower and 20 mpg highway. The Cummins Turbo Diesel-equipped Ram® pickup, with major overhaul intervals of 350,000 miles, is the only heavy-duty pickup to meet 2011 EPA compliance rules, without the need for a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).
6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel
This legendary engine has been a jobsite regular for years, and for a good reason: it has exceptional power and durability. And it boasts a class-exclusive six-speed manual or automatic transmission and integrated diesel exhaust brake. So, will it get the job done? Yeah. You could say that. The Cummins Diesel is standard on Ram® Heavy Duty 3500 models:
• HP 350

All 2013 Ram® Heavy Duty engines and transmissions are protected by a five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
Ram® is built to be durable from the ground up. Two-wheel drive models feature a short and long arm independent front suspension system with large stabilizer bars, plus steering arms positioned to minimize bump steer. Four-wheel drive models feature a five-link, coil-spring front suspension with a link-type sway bar and a beam axle for an outstanding combination of ride, handling and off-road operating characteristics.
Both two- and four-wheel drive rear suspension systems use high-strength longitudinal leaf springs and a solid rear axle. All 3500 models include separate auxiliary spring leaves to support the full-rated load and contribute to Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).
A truck as big and powerful as Ram® Heavy Duty needs large brakes. That's why we go big on our brake pistons and calipers, and why our brake pads cover a wide surface area. This allows you to stop with confidence and ensures longer intervals between brake jobs.
Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
The available integrated trailer brake controller allows you to automatically or manually activate the electronic brakes on properly equipped trailers for greater stopping power on downhill grades. The controller and status display are mounted in the dashboard to the left of the steering wheel, and the included control lever can activate the trailer brakes independent of the truck's brakes.
Stopping power is upped further by a wide brake pad surface area, and large brake pistons and calipers. Bigger brakes also mean longer intervals between brake jobs and less time and money spent in the shop. Additionally, a standard integrated diesel exhaust brake reduces brake fade and prolongs brake life.
Rear Backup Camera
The available ParkView® rear backup camera shows you what's behind your truck on the available the full-color multimedia touch screen when you're in reverse. It eases parking and takes the guesswork out of backing up to a trailer.
Trailer Tow Mirrors
The available large 7x11-inch folding trailer tow mirrors with available integrated turn signals and puddle lamps provide a commanding view of the road on both sides of your truck.
Trailer Harness Connector
A combination four-pin / seven-pin trailer harness connector, standard on all Heavy Duty Rams, eliminates dangling wires and makes it easier to connect your trailer.
Fifth Wheel Hitch
Count on impressive 16,000-lb towing capacity. This premium hitch, available from Mopar®, mounts directly to the frame's cross-member. It provides extra clearance to extend the turning radius and prevent damage to the rear window - previously 45 degrees, it's now expanded to 80 degrees.
Gooseneck Trailer Hitch
The available Mopar® gooseneck trailer hitch mounts securely in the cargo box using an installation kit that attaches directly to the frame rails under the box. A quick-release handle means it's easily removed.
Heavy-Duty Tow Hooks
Pull just about anything out of anywhere with these black, forged-steel hooks that mount to your Ram 2500 truck frame. Available from Mopar®.
