Ram Truck Reveals the Most Powerful Pickup - 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty Launches with Chart-topping Capabilities: Highest Available Fifth-wheel Towing and Record- Setting 930 lb.-ft. of Torque

•Ram Heavy Duty with Cummins 6.7-liter diesel brings total torque to 930 lb.-ft., highest rating ever for a pickup

•Ram 3500 upgrades open the gateway for heavy trailer manufacturers and deliver higher capabilities previously only available on Class 4 and 5 trucks

August 11, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Ram takes heavy-duty towing and hauling seriously. With the start of 2018 model-year production, the Ram 3500 will offer a segment-dominating 930 lb.-ft. of torque and the exclusive ability to tow 30,000 lbs. with a fifth-wheel hitch.

2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty '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. 'We understand the attributes most important to our customers within the heavy-duty segment; they demand hard-working, long-lasting capability.'

Working closely with Cummins, the 2018 diesel improvements include higher boost limits through a variable geometry turbo and flow rate increases through the fuel delivery system, enabling the 6.7-liter I-6 to produce an additional 30 lb.-ft. of torque. 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.

The 30,000-lb. fifth-wheel towing uprating is made possible by an in-house hitch design from Ram Engineering. The upgraded capability allows the Ram 3500 to haul the heaviest travel trailers in the industry. Únlike the competition, Ram's new hitch 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.


Part number: 82215769
MSRP: $1395
Also available as an upfit package for the Ram 3500.

Ram 3500 Heavy Duty maximum gooseneck and conventional hitch maximum trailer weight ratings for 2018 are 31,210 lbs and 20,000 lbs., respectively.
