More Tug-Worthy 2018 Ram 3500HD Boasts 930 LB-FT of Torque ""

2018 Ram 3500

If you have your eye on a 2017 Ram 3500HD equipped with the optional turbocharged 6.7-liter inline-six diesel engine with an intent to tow, then we’d recommend you wait to sign the paperwork. Next year’s truck equipped with the Cummins-sourced diesel engine will be available with a massive 930 lb-ft of torque—a gain of 30 lb-ft over the torquiest 2017 Ram 3500HD. 

The Ram’s extra grunt isn’t for naught, either, as the model is now capable of towing up to 30,000 pounds when equipped with the brand’s new fifth-wheel hitch design. That’s an increase of 5000 pounds over the 2017 truck. The hitch will set Ram buyers back $1395 but allows the 3500HD to tow up to 2500 pounds more than a Ford F-series Super Duty can do when equipped with a fifth-wheel hitch.

Fords with the optional diesel still beat the Ram’s tow rating with a gooseneck or conventional hitch, with the Super Duty’s 32,500- and 21,000-pound tow figures just besting the Ram’s 31,210- and 20,000-pound ratings.

The 2018 Ram 3500HD goes on sale this month with pricing that’s expected to remain close to the numbers for its 2017 counterpart. Although Ram isn’t ready to release horsepower figures for its diesel variant, we expect similar output to the 385-hp unit that currently sits at the top of the 2017 Ram 3500HD’s diesel totem pole.
