All Star Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Click to Call Now!

Did you know that one of the top towing trucks in the pick-up truck class is the Ram 3500 that is available at All Star Dodge Ram in Missouri?! We are pleased to say that you can basically tow a house with the Ram 3500. We want to explore more of its towing capabilities today.

“For 2017, the Ram 3500 is rated to tow a monstrous 31,210 pounds, 1210 pounds more than the 2015 Ram 3500 and a mere 10 pounds more than Ford’s F-450 pickup, the tow rating of which stands at “just” 31,200 pounds. What’s better than the bragging-rights war? Winning it, even if only by the weight of your Aunt Margaret’s cocker spaniel.”-caranddriver.com

The Ram’s increase was made possible in part by upping the number of bolts on the rear-axle ring-gear hardware (from 12 to 16, if you must know) on versions equipped with the 11.8-inch rear axle, as well as by using a stronger differential-case material. Also helping matters is a 35 lb-ft increase in torque for the 6.7-liter Cummins inline-six diesel engine, bringing the total to a nice, even 900 lb-ft (also bragging-rights material). The latter boost was made possible by recalibrated fuel-delivery and turbo-boost settings, Ram says.

Ram is also boasting the highest payload for a pickup: 7390 pounds for the 2016 Ram 3500 equipped with the 6.4-liter Hemi V-8. All claims are made using SAE J2807 testing criteria. (Keep in mind that some of this equipment does not come standard, you may have to add a package or two to get to the towing level that you want. This isn’t a bad thing as it more likely that your new Ram 3500 will be more tailored to you and your driving, and towing, lifestyle.)
