With the updated capability, the 2018 Ram 3500 would rival towing capabilities offered by Class 4 and 5 medium-duty trucks.

The 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty is offered with a revised 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, packing 385 horsepower and 930lb-ft of torque - up 30lb-ft over the 2017 Ram 3500. For the 2018 Ram 3500, the optional 5th wheel setup is rated for 30,000lbs, giving the Ram 3500 the highest rating of any 1-ton truck sold in America. With 930 lb-ft of torque, the crown is returned to the Cummins faithful.

The Ram's extra grunt isn't for naught, either, as the model is now capable of towing up to 30,000 pounds when equipped with the brand's new fifth-wheel hitch design.

MSRP: $1395 Also available as an upfit package for the Ram 3500.

The closest competitor for the Ram 3500 in the world of heavy duty pickups is the Ford F350, which when properly equipped can pull 32,000lbs with the PowerStroke Diesel packing 925lb-ft of torque. Maximum gooseneck and conventional hitch trailer weight ratings for 2018 are 31,210 and 20,000 pounds, respectively, the company said in a news release.

Creating a distinct identity for Ram trucks has allowed the brand to concentrate on core customers and the features they find valuable. The upgraded capability allows the Ram 3500 to haul the heaviest travel trailers in the industry.
