Like other heavy-duty pickups, the Ram 3500 has a stiff ride that bounces passengers around. Choosing this heavy-duty work truck over the regular 1500 lets you opt for the 350-hp Cummins 6.7-liter turbodiesel six-cylinder engine. Chrysler's powerful 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is also available. The crew cab's rear seat is tight and upright.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Style and handling."

Elmer B., ID (2014 Ram 3500)

"I haul a heavy trailer on a regular basis, 19k, this is the primary reason I own this truck. Cummings along with the exhaust brake, and tow package could not ask for a better combo. Coming from other brand. This by far exceeds expectations."

MICHAEL P., ME (2014 Ram 3500)

"I pull a 16000 lb. fifth wheel with this truck and it has performed very well. Love the handling. The short wheel base makes it a little cumbersome to back the fifth wheel but I am getting used to it."

DON A., IN (2014 Ram 3500)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"This is a big diesel pickup. The seats are very supportive. The ride is very stiff, which is to be expected. For a big rig it is fairly easy to drive. It is especially quite with the windows up. They seem to have done a good job with the noise isolation."

CRAIG H., TX (2014 Ram 3500)

"Seats are very comfortable, the only issue is that the automatic seat adjustment when you turn the engine on has failed twice. It is still under warranty, but it is a bit of a nuisance."

DON A., IN (2014 Ram 3500)

"after 23,000 miles and 5 months behind the wheel, I would do it again with a smile on my face. very comfortable, quiet and great ride on horrible roads"

RAY S., MS (2014 Ram 3500)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"I am extremely happy with this vehicle. I purchased it for the purpose of pulling a 5th wheel travel trailer. It is very steady going down the road. The truck is in control not the trailer. It stops well and has plenty of power to get going. When pulling my trailer (8 tons) it gets 10 MPG which seems pretty reasonable."

CRAIG H., TX (2014 Ram 3500)

"When towing heavy and long loads it can get weird but not in this truck 2 stage exhaust brakes controlled the decent superbly., comfort quiet and plenty of power to pull large loads"

RAY S., MS (2014 Ram 3500)

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"So far this truck has exceeded our expectations. We use it a lot at home and also when on vacation it tows our bumper pull travel trailer. When towing and going up hills it never loses power. It is as if it wasn't towing anything. The compfort inside is top notch. The nave system is wonderful and easy to use. The duel climate system is perfect. The stereo system is amazing. It is exceptional and it is beautiful."

BARBARA E., CA (2014 Ram 3500)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
