Drawing its namesake from its hood ornament on Dodge trucks in the early 1930s, the ram symbol was chosen for its strength and agile sure-footedness on precarious mountain trails. From its beginnings back in 1994, the Dodge Ram was offered as a ""dually,"" referring to Dodge’s dual rear wheels on both side; these behemoths of the road have the ability to tow huge loads up even the steepest and most challenging of grades. Make no mistake though, the 2007 line of Dodge Ram 3500’s are first and foremost the undisputed work horses of the road.

For the 2007 model year, the Dodge Ram 3500 receives a new 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, which takes the place of the previous 5.9-liter and paired with a six-speed automatic transmission as well. 2007 also marks the debut of an optional exhaust brake.
Designed to convey its intended gladiatorial-inspired essence, the 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 series is pure brute strength on wheels. It's decked out in 17-inch alloy wheels, a massive degree of ground clearance, and a gargantuan front-end grille.
Notable for affording its owners a better-than-average interior quality when compared against its class competitors, the 2007 Dodge Ram 3500’s cab is succinctly designed and highly driver-friendly. Straight, clean lines, adorned with good-quality plastic without giving the appearance of cheapness, the 3500 provides comfortable seating, commendable interior storage, and plenty of functionality such as on-board navigation, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, keyless entry/ignition, a six-CD changer, and steering wheel-mounted audio controls depending on which trim that's chosen. The biggest downside to the 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 is its lack of rear-cab space unless the Mega cab is selected, which gives more than enough room.
Performance & Handling
Regular and selected quad cab 2007 Dodge Ram 3500’s come standard with a 5.7-liter, V-8 engine that delivers 345 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. The 5.9-liter, Cummins inline-six, turbocharged diesel generates 325 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque, while the heftiest of the lot, the 6.7-liter, gives drivers 350 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque that’s good-to-go in the towing department for more than eight tons. Despite being built to haul maximum weights, the 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 series handles well in terms of passenger comfort and turning radius.
Standard and optional safety features vary a bit among all the trim levels. Four-wheel anti-lock brakes are standard across the board, while front side curtain airbags and fog lights remain optional on some.
