Ram updates its heavy duty offer with the introduction of the 2016 model year Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty. Both pick-ups benefit from a new and improved engine, that sets a new world record.
 
Ram Engineering and Cummins developed a new, hard-hitting fuel delivery and turbo boost calibration for the 6.7-liter I-6 diesel that produces an additional 35 lb.-ft. of torque. This improvement raises the bar from Ram’s current title at 865 lb.-ft. of torque to 900 lb.-ft. of torque — a number never achieved in a mass-produced vehicle.
 
The previous heavy-duty towing title also belongs to the Ram 3500 at 30,000 pounds. The 2016 Ram 3500 brings that stat to 31,210 pounds, further distancing the closest rival by more than two tons. To handle the increased towing capacity, Ram engineers beefed up the rear axle ring gear hardware from 12 to 16 bolts on all trucks equipped with the 11.8-inch axle. The additional hardened bolts and stronger material are used in the differential case to assure long-term durability.
 
The most payload available in a pickup is 7,390 pounds for a 6.4-liter-equipped Ram 3500 model, more than 3.5 tons.
 
Pricing for the 2016 Ram 2500 model starts at $31,485, while its bigger brother, the 2016 Ram 3500 is just a little more expensive at $31,990. 2016 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups will arrive in dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2015.
