The Diesel engines are a very popular choice, and on today markets the biggest number wins, no matter if it is about towing capability or power. That’s why the anticipated 2019 RAM 3500HD is stepping to the scene. Firstly introduces in 2010, and updated in 2013, RAM 3500HD will hit the markets with not so many changes, but the diesel model is the biggest change for sure.
It was a matter of time when this heavy-duty model will get a turbodiesel engine, and now that time has come. It is speculated that the 3500HD Diesel will become a class leader in a number of torques, and even the fuel flow is increased. Furthermore, towing capacity is also amazing, but a good vehicle is more than the powerful engine and good tow rating.
2019 RAM 3500HD Comes with a little tweaks
Like we mentioned before, nothing dramatically changed on RAM 3500HD since 2013. RAM discovered a winning combination with a couple of tweaks here and there. The new front grille is available on higher trims like Laramie Longhorn and Limited.
The grille comes with nostril-style openings and huge RAM lettering is in the center of it. The change of the front grille is actually the biggest change that happened here. However, the front bumper is slightly slotted for better cooling and at the back, receiver hitch comes with both four and seven-pin wiring connectors.
A backup camera will reside in the tailgate handle.
2019 RAM 3500HD Interior Features

All the controls, screens and even an optional 8.4-inch Uconnect system are updated. However, the luxury is available on higher trim levels, and the base trim doesn’t have much to offer. Vinyl flooring, some basic features, and small driver information screens are the highlights of the base model.
The Big Horn trim comes with several upgrades, but the mid-trim Laramie is perhaps the most popular choice. It offers leather sits and plenty of other luxurious amenities. The top-range Limited model comes with plenty of wood materials even on the dash and steering wheel. Colored leather seats are standard, and basically, all options offered are packed in Limited trim.
