The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Makes a Ridiculous 1,000 Lb-Ft of Torque

The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty Makes a Ridiculous 1,000 Lb-Ft of Torque

February 05, 2019

In the American muscle car world, horsepower is king (see the new Shelby GT500 rumors), but in the heavy-duty truck world, bragging rights are all about torque. And in that area, Ram does not like to lose, which is why the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty makes a ridiculous 1,000 lb-ft of torque.

That’s the figure on the 400 horsepower 6.7-liter high-output Cummins engine, which offers the full grand worth of torque at 1,800 RPM, and 15 ponies more than last year’s model. It helps the Ram 3500 increase its towing capacity to 35,100 pounds, and gives it a payload rating as high as 7,680 pounds.
Ram talks about some of the features of the engine in its press release, saying it’s 60 pounds lighter than the previous motor, with a new cast iron head, “lighter and stronger” pistons, a new forged connecting rod design, and an allegedly “improved” variable geometry turbo bolted to a new exhaust manifold.

Another available 6.7-liter Cummins is also offered, though it’s a bit less potent at 370 horses and 850 lb-ft. There’s still the base 6.4-liter gasoline engine that makes 410 HP and 429 lb-ft.
