Dive into the Details of Our New Ram Trucks

The Ram 1500 is the sole light-duty option offered by the brand, but as you can see, it grants substantial strength to its owners. The figures above are based on 2019 models. The towing and payload ratings are achieved by a composition that entails the 5.7-liter V8 HEMI® and 3.6-liter V6, respectively.

The Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 are heavy-duty options. Engineered for commercial-grade workloads, their figures are considerably higher. The towing and payload data above are based on 2018 models equipped with a 6.7-liter I6 Cummins® Turbo Diesel and 6.4-liter Heavy Duty V8 HEMI®, respectively.

The Ram Chassis Cab is the only cutaway and can be outfitted with different bodies to suit your needs. Like the Ram Heavy Duty trucks, its 2018 models can reach the towing and payload numbers outlined above with the 6.7-liter I6 Cummins® Turbo Diesel or 6.4-liter Heavy Duty V8 HEMI®, respectively.

It should also be noted that all four styles of Ram trucks, regardless of engine, were coupled with a 4x2 drivetrain to maximize pulling forces. However, if you intend to tackle work in low-traction conditions, you may want to check out pickups incorporated with a 4x4 system instead.
