Even though the 2012 Ram 3500 was built to tackle the most demanding of pickup duties, it remains comfortably composed in most situations. The steering is responsive and the truck tracks through turns in a composed manner. Though not harsh, the Ram's ride isn't quite as compliant over the bumps as its Ford and GM competitors.
On the highway, road and wind noise are nicely quelled, with only a muted
diesel clatter at full throttle. The diesel engine is strong and provides plenty
of power for towing and hauling heavy loads. We recommend picking the six-speed
automatic transmission, as its 150 extra lb-ft of torque over the diesel with
the manual gearbox makes a noticeable difference in towing ability.
