For 2020, the Ram 3500 Tradesman is available in either regular or crew cab formats, with plenty of flexibility to choose the features you need.

Performance and Powertrain

At the heart of the Tradesman's performance is a 6.4L V8 engine producing 410hp and 429lb-ft of torque. This is passed through an eight-speed automatic transmission to four-wheel drive, and offers a strong balance of power and responsiveness.

However, the mid-range engine is a substantial 6.7L Cummins I-6 Turbo diesel engine. While this option drops the horsepower to 370hp, it pushes up the torque to an impressive 850lb-ft, making this option ideal for shifting heavy loads over challenging terrains.

Lastly, there's a higher-output version of the 6.7L engine available, which passes its 400hp through a specialist six-speed automatic gearbox to generate a stunning 1,000lb-ft of torque. If you're looking for sheer power to get any job done, this high-end powertrain is hard to beat.

Ram Tradesman 3500 Capability

Of course, a truck's usefulness in the real world is about more than just engine figures. The 3500 Tradesman is well suited to hauling heavy loads, with its standard payload capacity of close to 3,000kg, rising to 3,483kg depending on precise configuration.

Towing capability is impressive too, with maximum ratings starting at 7250kg and rising to 8259kg. And the 3500 Tradesman makes towing even the heaviest loads a smooth experience thanks to its Class V hitch receiver, rated for up to 10,000kg and providing plenty of capacity to spare.

Interior Features

For a working vehicle, Ram trucks have surprisingly comfortable interiors with plenty of added tech, and the 3500 Tradesman is no different. The front row seats are in heavy duty vinyl, fitted in a 40/20/40 split for maximum flexibility. In the crew cab models the rear bench seat is full-width folding for when you need extra interior space.
