2018 RAM 3500 Heavy Duty Revealed

If you are looking for a powerful truck that can haul and tow, then what better vehicle than the new 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty?

According to the manufacturer, the new 3500 Heavy Duty is the pickup with the highest torque rating in the entire segment, plus the vehicle offers the heaviest fifth-wheel towing capacity. If this model doesn’t impress you, nothing will.

The engine which powers this vehicle is an improved 6.7-liter Cummins I6 diesel which generates 930 lb-ft of torque, which is 30 more compared to the previous model. This extra torque is due to higher boost pressure and flow rates of the fuel delivery system.

He said: “Ram maintains capability leadership by delivering the highest-ever torque rating for a pickup truck and heaviest fifth-wheel trailer towing capacity. We understand the attributes most important to our customers within the heavy-duty segment; they demand hard-working, long-lasting capability.”
