RAM 3500 Heavy Duty Revealed

RAM 3500 Heavy Duty Revealed

The closest competitor for the Ram 3500 in the world of heavy duty pickups is the Ford F350, which when properly equipped can pull 32,000lbs with the PowerStroke Diesel packing 925lb-ft of torque.

Fiat Chrysler is promising big things with its 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty pickup.

The news from Ram inches them ahead Ford who had the segment's highest torque rating prior at 925 lb-ft.

"Ram maintains capability leadership by delivering the highest-ever torque rating for a pickup truck and heaviest fifth-wheel trailer towing capacity", said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep & Ram Brand, FCA Global.

2018 Ram 3500 HD

The 30,000-lb. fifth-wheel towing uprating is made possible by an in-house hitch design from Ram Engineering.

The improved 6.7-liter Cummins inline-six diesel engine now offers a total of 930lb-ft of torque, an extra 30lb-ft over the last model, thanks to higher boost pressure and flow rates of the fuel delivery system. Ram didn't provide specifics about those changes, but it did provide us with a new tow rating for fifth-wheel trailers: 30,000 pounds.

If you are looking for a powerful truck that can haul and tow, then what better vehicle than the new 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty? The hitch enables customers to move away from Class 4 and Class 5 pickup trucks, but it doesn't come cheap. If that's not enough towing capacity for you, the 3500 is also rated to haul 31,210 pounds with a gooseneck hitch. Ram HD trucks also lead in a frequently overlooked area by others in the segment: snow plowing.

The trucks arrive in dealerships this month.
