What Can You Tow with a 6.7-Liter Cummins® Diesel Engine, the Crown of the 2018 RAM 3500?

We get this question a lot here at Kernersville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, for just about every new RAM truck, from the light-duty RAM 1500 to the superiorly capable RAM 2500. But when truckers from over in Winston-Salem, out in Greensboro, across Oak Hollow Lake in High Point, or down in Charlotte hear the answer for the top-tier RAM 3500, they can usually hardly believe it until they see a RAM pickup in action.

Indeed, you can take advantage of a gargantuan 30,000-pound max fifth-wheel towing capability with the new 3500's equally newly engineered hitch. This is capability previously only found among Class 4 and Class 5 trucks like RAM 4500 and RAM 5500. How did RAM achieve this? For one, with a variable-geometry turbo that increased the engine's boost limit. Secondly, with increased fuel flow rates. But most importantly, with 930 pound-feet of torque, a turning-and-pulling-power high among new heavy-duty trucks. The result: a whole lot of leeway for heavy trailering. Just imagine the possibilities for your tow.

You can, of course, take on lighter loads, like a pop-up tent camper, a regular small RV model like a Coleman, Forest River, or Starcraft toy hauler, a couple of dirt bikes, or an off-road vehicle or two, like an ATV. But if you're planning to take on the truly tremendous, like a horse trailer, powerboat, or a fifth-wheel-capable camper like a DRV mobile suite or a Heartland Cyclone, with a new 2018 RAM 3500 diesel truck, it's easier than ever. Even with a gooseneck hitch, you can still achieve around 31,210 pounds of max tow capacity, while a conventional hitch makes possible 20,000 pounds maximum -- plenty for nearly any job.

But there's plenty more going on under the hood and in-cabin. Check out the latest RAM 3500 here at our Kernersville, NC dealership, and you'll see what we mean. We're just a short haul up NC Highway 66 South!
