Ram Reveals 2018 3500 Heavy Duty, The Segment's Most Powerful Pickup Truck

Ram Reveals 2018 3500 Heavy Duty, The Segment's Most Powerful Pickup Truck

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.

Fiat Chrysler is promising big things with its 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty pickup. The Ford is rated to tow more, but with the caveat is that the fifth-wheel hitch is rated to a maximum of only 27,500 pounds, which puts a limit on its overall capability. It will now sell you a Ram 3500 with 930 lb-ft.

The 2018 Ram 3500 is available in USA dealerships this month. Combined with flow rate increases and a more optimized fuel delivery system, the new Ram 3500 HD now produces an additional 30 lb-ft. of torque, for a grand total of 930.

The different types of hitches and towing capabilities are some of the most important elements to know when towing heavy loads. The new hitch also allows customers to move away from Class 4 and 5 trucks to haul trailers that would have otherwise been limited to 24,000lbs.

Ram claims highest-ever torque rating for a pickup

Though we're still waiting for Ram to announce when its heavy-duty pickup trucks will get a redesign - the rumor mill puts that at 2019 - that doesn't mean Ram is sitting on its laurels. Maximum gooseneck and conventional hitch trailer weight ratings for 2018 are 31,210 and 20,000 pounds, respectively, the company said in a news release. The upgraded capability allows the Ram 3500 to haul the heaviest travel trailers in the industry. Ram engineers actually conduct dedicated plow testing in Houghton, Michigan, where temperatures regularly fall below zero.

The trucks arrive in dealerships this month.
