Combine world-class capability with outstanding performance and
you've got the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. Virtually
indestructible in design, the Cummins Turbo Diesel is engineered to
the tolerances, quality and durability to power semi class big
rigs. Rated at 276kW and 1084Nm, the incredible torque delivers
uncompromising strength for towing and hauling. The engine features
a next generation Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) System and an
ultra-efficient Diesel Cooling System with an 11 blade fan and a
smart diesel exhaust brake.
Whether you carry your weight in a trailer or in your tub, the
6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine delivers with a
maximum towing capacity of 6170kg using a pintle and 1713kg
SIX SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
The Cummins Turbo Diesel engine is packaged with the 68RFE
six-speed automatic transmission, which includes driver-adaptive
shifting and three multiple clutch packs, dual filters on a dual
stage pump and an independent lubrication cooler that delivers
ample pressures under all loads and driving conditions.
HEAVY DUTY SUSPENSION
A ground breaker knows that the most trusted experts are the
ones with real-world experience. When Ram engineers created the
Ram 3500 Heavy Duty suspension, they combined their hands-on
knowledge with cutting-edge technology. The result was a
hardworking suspension, yielding an impossibly smooth ride.
Nothing says total utility quite like the redesigned 3500
Hotchkis rear leaf spring suspension, which delivers improved ride,
handling, towing, and payload capability.
A significantly larger stabilizer bar generates higher roll
stiffness than past models and gives Ram 3500 Heavy Duty trucks
more stability on the road-and off.
The advanced three-link front suspension on Ram 3500 increases
roll stiffness and supports its increased towing capacity.
THE FRAME - UNCOMPROMISING SUPPORT
Unwavering. Unshakable. Undeterred. Groundbreakers understand
that true character begins with a strong foundation. So when our
engineers set out to design the Ram 3500, they started with the
frame. And they didn't stop until they had created the most
resilient one ever found in a Ram truck.
Eight separate crossmembers, hydroformed frame rails and fully
boxed rear rails help add strength and stability, giving Ram 3500
the support to tow bigger and work harder.
The Ram brand engineers had your toughest jobs in mind when they
developed the 3500 heavy-duty, 50-KSI steel frame, providing for
more structural support than ever before.
TOUGH 4 X 4
The transfer case in the Ram is exactly what you need for ultra
4x4 capability. The BorgWarner BW 44-46 transfer case features
responsive electronic shift on the fly engineering with three
operating ranges plus neutral. This impressive unit offers a long
range reduction ratio of 2.64:1 - an ideal ratio when off road in a
slow rock climbing situation or when using your Ram 4x4 on
challenging terrain or steep grades. You need capability and
performance that exceeds the need and Ram Heavy Duty trucks are
designed to excel.
Sometimes, the best things come from sitting and listening. For
years, Ram engineers learned from some of the toughest workers
around: customers. It's paid off in increased performance, thanks
to the Active Air®system, designed specifically for
those who take trucks to the limit day in and day out.
In extreme heat or high altitudes, the Ram Active
Air® system reads outside conditions and
automatically switches to intake cooler air from the grille.
Ram Active Air® technology helps ensure
optimal engine air intake regardless of climatic elements. We made
sure that optimal power and torque are virtually certain in all
tow, haul, push, pull scenarios-and even in the most extreme
temperatures known to man.
