Ram 2500 is a monster as it has turbo-diesel inline-six with its mind-blowing round four-figure torque rating. It doesn’t stop there, as Ram as changes the interiors and added new technologies to make it a modern monster.
The company has stacked it’s HD powertrains again of 2019. The 5.7-liter V-8 is gone, this leaves the 6.4-liter V-8 410 horsepower, 429 pound-feet of torque which is mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic as the only gasoline option.
The basic unit is rated at 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet and gets bolted to an upgraded version of last year’s six-speed automatic. On the other hand, the headline-stealing 400-hp, 1000-lb-ft engine is getting an Aisin six-speed automatic prepped for battle with a larger thrust bearing and additional heat treating for specific components.
According to Ram, the frame is built from scratch, the 98.5 of the frame is made from high-strength steel. Many other improvements are made to the front as well as the rear axles which increases its capability and durability. As for the acceleration, 3500 has a 22-foot-long crew-cab ICBM-delivery rig with dual rear wheels. Even with a 17,540 trailer on its back, the Ram can easily pull it without a problem.
Moreover, a smart mode lets the driver select his desired downhill speed by tapping the brake. It maintains the that speed until the driver resumes control by legging the accelerator again.
