The New 2019 Ram 3500 HD Diesel Tows the Maximum 35,000 Lbs!

The New 2019 Ram 3500 HD Diesel Tows the Maximum 35,000 Lbs!

February 04, 2019

The 2019 Ram HD trucks are thoroughly updated for increased and class-leading towing and hauling capability. The new 2019 Ram 3500 HD trucks are rated at a maximum of 7,680 lbs of payload and 35,100 lbs of towing. How does the truck behave with a maximum load behind it? We can show it to you in this first drive video review.

While the maximum payload rating comes with a Ram 3500 dually 2WD with a 6.4L HEMI V8, the all out towing rating is only available with the high output (H.O.) 6.7L inline-6 turbo-diesel from Cummins. The fully redesigned H.O. diesel is now rated at 400 hp and class-leading 1,000 lb-ft of torque.

The H.O. diesel is mated to an updated 6-speed AISIN automatic transmission. There is still a standard 6.7L Cummins power rating for the 2500 and 3500 trucks. It comes in at 370 hp and 850 lb-ft of torque, and it is still mated to the 68RFE 6-speed automatic transmission. This is 50 lb-ft higher than before.
