I drive up and down I-25 every day in Colorado and see hoards of trucks towing massive RVs along behind them. I always wonder what it takes to tow these giant trailers and torque is the answer. If you need a big 5th wheel travel trailer, Ram has your tow vehicle. The 2018 Ram 3500 has been announced and the truck makes 930 lb-ft of torque.
To get all that torque, you have to option the truck with the 6.7L Cummins 6-cylinder engine. The extra torque comes thanks to a variable geometry turbo an improved fuel flow supporting higher boost. Buyers can also opt for a new 5th wheel hitch that allows the truck to tow up to 30,000 pounds.
If you are using a normal gooseneck hitch, the truck tows 31,210 pounds. The truck will hit dealerships this month and will pull all the things.
