2017 Ram 3500 Diesel

In case you were wondering which pickup truck currently offers the highest torque numbers, the right answer to that question is the Ram 3500 Diesel. Not only that, the company claims that the diesel-powered version of the 3500 is the model that offers the most torque ever, at least when it comes to the mass-produced vehicles. As for the 2017 model, it is due to receive only minor updates compared to its immediate predecessor. With its stunning 900 pound-feet of torque and 31,210 of towing capacity, the 2017 Ram 3500 Diesel will be the class-leading option in many respects.

Engine Specs

Thanks to the 2016 upgrades, the Ram 3500 came with significantly improved output figures. Namely, the 2015 model was powered by the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel that generated 385 horsepower and 865 lb-ft of torque, with 30,000 pounds of towing capacity. Then came the new Ford F-450 with its towing capacity of 32,000 pounds, which encouraged Ram to start working on a modified version of the capable Cummins unit. As a result, the latest Ram 3500 boasts impressive 900 lb-ft of twist and tows 32,210 pounds. So, the 2017 Ram 3500 Diesel outdoes the likes of the Chevy Silverado 3500HD that comes with the 6.6-liter Duramax delivering 765 lb-ft and 23,000 pounds of towing capacity.

Design-wise, the 2017 Ram 3500 Diesel is likely to adopt a number of subtle enhancements. Inside the cabin, we expect to see several styling tweaks as well as a more ample list of standard amenities. Unlike most of its competitors, the base 3500 models offer mostly low-quality materials throughout the cabin. Apart from receiving some upscale materials, the 2017 version is expected to offer an upgraded infotainment system as well. As for its range-topping trims such as the Limited, expect it to come with a revised front end that includes a reshaped grille covered with a bevy of chrome accents. The interior boasts plenty of upscale features such as wood inserts, silver pin striping and leather upholstery with contrast stitching.
