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

The closest competitor for the Ram 3500 in the world of heavy duty pickups is the Ford F350, which when properly equipped can pull 32,000lbs with the PowerStroke Diesel packing 925lb-ft of torque.

Mike Manely, the Head of Jeep and Ram Brand was eager to talk about the new 3500 Heavy Duty.

2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty

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. The redesigned Duramax comes in at 910 lb-ft. of torque, although GM leads the segment in horsepower. 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.

"Torque is ultimately important to the heavy duty customer because it's what gets the truck moving", he said.

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. Despite the higher boost, Ram promises that durability hasn't been compromised. Ram Engineering also developed a new fifth-wheel hitch, giving the 3500 HD the aforementioned 30,000 lbs. towing capacity. The hitch enables customers to move away from Class 4 and Class 5 pickup trucks, but it doesn't come cheap.

Out back, the Ram 3500 also will feature a new hitch design. Similarly, Ram 2500 trucks provide best-in-class gas towing at 16,230 lbs.
