Unveiling the 2025 RAM 3500 with Allison Transmission

The RAM 3500 was one of the most popular vehicles in the heavy-duty truck market. Based on a body-on-frame design and equipped with a powerful engine lineup under the hood, it was a good pick for customers who need reliable and powerful trucks that can tow big and heavy loads. But in the last few years, it has started to fall off due to competition. A big reason for that was dated transmission. The 2025 RAM 3500 should introduce a new 10-speed automatic transmission, which will make this truck more appealing to new customers than ever before.

Certain aspects in which Dodge excelled previously will remain unchanged. The 2025 model will retain the RAM 3500’s versatile and well-appointed interior and sturdy exterior. Moreover, it will provide a plethora of supplementary features, allowing customers to select the equipment that best suits their preferences.
