2019 Ram Heavy Duty: King of the Hill for Capability, Towing, Hauling

The 2019 Ram Heavy Duty has ‘overpowered’ the heavy-duty truck segment with capability and torque unmatched in that segment on the road today. It’s quite literally the most powerful pickup ever built thanks to a new Cummins 6.7-liter high-output Turbo Diesel that delivers up to 1,000 lb. ft. of torque. But the brand didn’t stop there. This new Cummins Turbo diesel also weighs 60 pounds less than the previous-generation engine, yet still delivers more power and torque. All that power and capability translate into welcome news for truck owners who constantly face the need to tackle the biggest towing and hauling jobs on a daily basis. This Truck Tuesday, Rod Roman, Chief Engineer for Ram Heavy Duty, says achieving the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty ‘trifecta’ of benchmarks – towing, hauling and torque – was the mission of everyone on the program from the start!
