2015 Ram pickup trucks with best-in-class fuel economy and capab

Ram has pushed the numbers of its heavy duty trucks even higher for 2015, claiming a number of best-in-class titles for its HD trucks. 

For its top dog Ram 3500, the brand has tuned the 6.7-liter diesel engine to make 385 hp and best-in-class 865 lb-ft of torque. The 6.7 can be had in two other flavors as well, one making 350 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque, while the middle option makes 370 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque. This puts the Ram 3500 at the top of its class when it comes to torque, even edging the Ford F-450 by 5 lb-ft of torque.

For towing numbers, the 3500 stays at the top of the pack with 30,000 pounds of SAE J2807 approved towing capacity and best-in-class 7,390 pounds of payload.

The Ram 2500 is rated to pull 17,970 pounds worth of a trailer when properly equipped, giving it best-in-class towing among three-quarter ton trucks.

All of these ratings are backed up by SAE J2807 testing, another claim that only Ram can make when it comes to heavy duty pickup trucks.
