2012 Dodge Ram 3500 Review

Scott here from Sherwood Dodge.

Today I want to do a quick video on one of our new models, the Ram Longhorn. Now this truck is available in 1500, 2500 and 3500. The truck that we are going to look at today specifically is the 3500, Crew Cab, Dually (2012 Dodge Ram 3500). This truck only comes with the legendary Cummins Diesel engine, but there is a bunch of new features in it that you might not have seen before. So we don’t have time in a short video to talk about all the technical aspects of this truck, so here is just a few highlights.

These truck are only available with the Cummins Turbo Diesel engine which delivers 350 horsepower and a whopping 800 lb-feet of torque. Dodge is the only diesel engine that does not require DEF or Diesel Exhaust Fluid to meet strict emission standards. In our cold climate having to use Diesel Exhaust Fluid can expensive and it can be a real nuisance. The Longhorn model comes equipped with a very heavy duty yet still smooth shifting six speed automatic transmission.

One of the first things that you will notice about the Longhorn edition is the distinctive styling. This truck is available in a few different colours: both two tone with a gold trim on the bottom and monotone like this one. This is a really serious truck with exceptional towing and hauling capabilities but with surprising luxury inside. Look at the saddle leather, it is soft to the touch, even smells leathery. You know if you usually don’t like Western sort of cowboy styling, I still think you might like the look and feel of this truck. Even the floor mats have unique badging and fit well with the overall interior design.

Now the truck itself is based on our very popular model Laramine model, which is our top of the line trim package. Which means this things only comes one way and that is loaded up with goodies. Heated leather seats, heated steering wheel, dual zone climate control and its got navigation with backup camera. Just check out how easy hooking up to a trailer is.

Another great option on these trucks is the integrated brake controller. It uses all the technology of the truck to adjust the braking as necessary. And if you hit the remote starter when the outside temperature is below freezing, this truck is smart enough to turn on the heated seats and steering wheel. Hard working, heavy duty Ram truck, dressed up very nicely.

Well I hope you agree this is a beautiful truck. Thanks for taking the time to watch this video.
