Ram Truck Brings World's Most Powerful Pick-Up
|   Tuesday, September 12, 2017
The American company Ram Truck presented the updated 3500 Heavy Duty pick-up, ready for the 2018 model range. The car was dubbed as the most powerful in the segment to which it belongs.

On the US market there is a fiery duel between pick-up producers. Everybody wants to have the best values in terms of torque and towing capacity. Because of this, more and more impressive models appear.

Ram, the pickup division of Fiat Chrysler, announced that the 2018 version of the Ram 3500 Heavy Duty is rewriting the laws of the segment.
The Cummins diesel engine with a displacement of 6.7 liters now produces 1,261 Nm, 41 Nm more than the currently available version.

At the same time, the Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty and GMC Sierra Heavy Duty promise 1,234 Nm of torque. Also, the V8 engine with a displacement of 6.7 liters of the Ford F-Series range boasts some 1,254 Nm of torque.

The Ram Truck and Cummins engineers worked closely together and have decided to increase the upper limits of diesel engine power thanks to a variable geometry turbine and a more fuel-efficient fuel pump. These changes made it possible to increase the torque by more than 40 Nm.
At the same time, the towing characteristics have been improved due to the docking of a special towing facility by Ram Engineering. Such an equipment turns the Ram 3500 into the best pick-up in the segment.

All of these performances can motivate customers to opt for such a car in favor of Class 4 or 5 trucks. The installation is optional and costs 1,395 dollars.
9,072 kilograms is the value displayed next to the towing capacity when the operation is carried out with the traditional hook. But Ram engineers have developed a special hook that is positioned in the dump and increases the tow capacity to 13,608 kilograms.

At the same time, Ram officials also released a special version for the 1500, 2500 and 3500 models. This is called the Tungsten Edition, and offers special exterior features, two-tone upholstery and wooden interior accessories.

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

Since the launch in 2009 as a stand-alone division, Ram Truck has steadily become an industry leader within the US' iconic line of pickups.
Making a distinct identity for its trucks allowed the company to focus on core customers and their desires and what they find valuable. Overall, Ram has the truck market well and truly covered, be it for the family users or the people who run a business, or just the hardcore fans, they all have something to pick from, like the 1500, the ProMaster or the 3500.

The 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty goes into dealerships starting this August.
