2016 Ram Cummins Diesel Has 900 Freaking LB-FT Of Torque

Ram’s firing shots clear across the bow of the 2015 Ford F-450 and its “best in class” towing claim by juicing the 2016 Ram 3500’s 6.7 Cummins diesel to 900 lb-ft of torque and rating it for 31,210 pounds of towing.

John’s the one getting yelled at here, but what happened isn’t all his fault. I mean, sure, some of it is, like how he’s towing these guys along at around 50 MPH and doesn’t really seem to know his Land Rover has that nice “rear window” option.

Ram Sticking To Contested, Pointless 'Best-In-Class' Claims

Weeks ago Ford told Ram to cease and desist making "best-in-class" heavy-duty towing claims. Ford says their new F-450 competes with (and bests) the Ram 3500, but Ram says phoey, and they're juicing their 6.7 Cummins engine by an extra 15 lb-ft of torque to take top-output for the 2015 model year. » 8/25/14 5:37pm 8/25/14 5:37pm

New Tow Ratings For Entire Ram Trucks Lineup Based On SAE Standard

Ford, Ram, and GM have promised to post half-ton truck tow ratings to the Society of Automotive Engineers' standard known as SAE J2807 for the 2015 model year. GM committed and we're still waiting on Ford, but Ram has taken an extra leap adhering to the standard for half-ton, three-quarter, and mighty one-ton pickups. » 7/18/14 9:58am 7/18/14 9:58am
