2018 RAM 3500 tops the charts!


The factory race to the top of the ‘tow charts’ continues with RAM setting the pace! Someone once said that horsepower is how fast you can hit a wall, but torque is how far you take the wall with you.

The new 2018 RAM 3500 rolls out with a big 6.7L Cummins under the hood, that has been revamped in conjunction with Cummins!  The new configuration adds 30 lb.-ft of torque that puts the power plant at a leading 930 lb.-ft of tree stump pulling torque due to higher boost limits combining with improvements in the fuel delivery system.

“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.

Add in the newly designed fifth wheel hitch from Ram Engineering, and it is possible to tow a very impressive 30,000 pound load! This translates into customers being able to move away from the Class 4 and 5 trucks.  The part number for the new fifth wheel hitch is:

Part Number 892215769

MSRP is at $1,395

The new 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty should be available this month, August 2017, as well as the new hitch.
