Ram 3500 Improves Towing and Torque Capability

2018 Ram 3500 HD

Next year's truck equipped with the Cummins-sourced diesel engine will be available with a massive 930 lb-ft of torque-a gain of 30 lb-ft over the torquiest 2017 Ram 3500HD.

The 2018 Dodge Ram 3500 Heavy Duty will be the most talked about truck on the market in 2018.

The Ram 3500 still uses a 6.7-liter Cummins I-6, but a variable geometry turbocharger and improved fuel flow now allow it to run higher boost.

Ram noted that its 30,000-lb. fifth-wheel towing uprating will allow customers to move away from Class 4 and 5 trucks to haul trailers that would have otherwise been limited to 24,000 lbs. A new in-house hitch design gives the truck that capability. With 930 lb-ft of torque, the crown is returned to the Cummins faithful. This improvement ranks the Cummins engine ahead of the competition with 930 total lb. -ft. of torque, while maintaining the diesel's hallmark durability and efficiency.

Ibrahimovic in talks to pen new Manchester United deal
The Swede has played as a central defender since completing his £30million move from Benfica earlier this summer. Ibrahimovic netted 28 times and provided 10 assists in 46 games for the United last season .

"We understand the attributes most important to our customers within the heavy-duty segment; they demand hard-working, long-lasting capability", said Mike Manley, head of Jeep and Ram Brand. Ram trucks, yet again, is back on top.

The Ram's extra grunt isn't for naught, either, as the model is now capable of towing up to 30,000 pounds when equipped with the brand's new fifth-wheel hitch design. If that's not enough towing capacity for you, the 3500 is also rated to haul 31,210 pounds with a gooseneck hitch.

Pictures are fine, but we want to see what this hitch can really do. The hitch is available for purchase (PN 82215769) at $1,395 or as an option from the factory.

For reference, the Ford F-Series Super Duty diesel makes 925 lb-ft, and GM's Heavy Duty trucks get by with a measly 910 lb-ft. We can not wait to see these 2018's hit the streets.
