The workhorse 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine has been a job site regular for years, and for a good reason: It’s exceptionally powerful and durable. Dodge Ram Heavy Duty 3500 is the only truck in its class to offer a standard diesel engine, one of the reasons why it was named Motor Trend’s 2010 Truck of the Year.

The 2010 Dodge Ram 3500 in Tyler is available in three cab styles: regular, Quad Cab and Mega Cab. The regular cabs come with a long bed only, while the Quad Cab has either a short or long cargo bed. The Mega Cab rides on the same wheelbase as the Quad Cab long bed but pairs an even bigger cabin with the short bed. The regular cab comes in ST or SLT trims; the Quad Cab in ST, SLT or Laramie trims; and the Mega Cab is SLT or Laramie only.
The Ram ST offers the 17-inch wheels, vinyl upholstery, 40/20/40-split front bench seat, air-conditioning and a CD player. The SLT adds alloy wheels, cruise control, cloth upholstery, carpet, full power accessories and keyless entry. The SLT is equipped similarly but comes only with the Mega Cab.
The Ram 3500 dually is available with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive and comes with a 6.7-liter Cummins turbo-diesel inline-6 that produces 350 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. This big mill can be paired to a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic.
The Cummins comes with a big-rig-like exhaust brake that provides additional stability and braking power when towing very heavy loads. Properly equipped, the Ram 3500 can tow up to 16,350 pounds.
The 2010 Ram 3500′s crew cabs can seat up to six people, and the rear seats fold up to reveal a flat load floor for carrying large items inside and features a huge center armrest/bin.
The Mega Cab more than compensates by expanding legroom by nearly a foot and offering a comfy, reclining backseat. If carrying passengers in comfort is a priority equal to pickup utility, it’s hard to do better than a Ram 3500 Mega Cab model.
