The Most Powerful Pickup: 2018 Ram 3500 HD Record Breaking Torque

The Most Powerful Pickup: 2018 Ram 3500 HD Record Breaking Torque”

Ram has increased the towing capability of its 3500 Heavy Duty pickup for the 2018 model year by offering a fifth-wheel option that would boost the maximum trailer weight rating to 30,000 pounds, Fiat Chrysler has announced.

"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 and Ram Brand - FCA Global.

The latest shot has been fired in the battle of America's strongest trucks, as the 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty now packs 930lb-ft of torque from its 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, making it the top dog in terms of torque. Ram says it designed the new hitch to allow owners to haul trailers that previously would have required a Class 4 or Class 5 truck. You'll be able to add the new hitch for $1,395 or order it as part of a package.

The 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty is offered with a revised 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, packing 385 horsepower and 930lb-ft of torque - up 30lb-ft over the 2017 Ram 3500. With 930 lb-ft of torque, the crown is returned to the Cummins faithful. Ram has heard you and wants to help.

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

Fords with the optional diesel still beat the Ram's tow rating with a gooseneck or conventional hitch, with the Super Duty's 32,500- and 21,000-pound tow figures just besting the Ram's 31,210- and 20,000-pound ratings. The upgraded capability allows the Ram 3500 to haul the heaviest travel trailers in the industry. Having the ability to tow a heavier trailer will resonate well with diesel enthusiasts who truly use their truck.

Look for the 2018 Ram Heavy Duty pickup trucks to arrive at dealerships this month.
