The Ram Heavy Duty has been around since 1981 when Dodge introduced the three-quarter and one-ton trucks. The Ram was available with an innovative, 5.9-liter, Cummins turbo-diesel, something GM and Ford trucks couldn’t boast. The old Cummins turbo-diesel saw Ram Heavy Duty sales grow, thanks to its direct-injection fuel system, turbocharger, and greater power outputs than the competition.

Four generations of trucks later, the Ram Heavy Duty is still powering ahead of the competition with its Cummins turbo-diesel power, unmatched payload and towing stats, and its rugged, big-rig-like looks.

The 2015 model year sees some fairly significant changes for the Ram truck, mostly dealing with its updated, 6.7-liter, Cummins powerplant and the trucks certification with the Society of Automotive Engineers’ J2807 towing standards. Though the Cummins is the headlining engine, Ram (no longer Dodge since 2010) also offers a 6.4-lite, HEMI V-8 and the venerable 5.7-liter, HEMI V-8.

With three cab configurations, three bed lengths, two engines, and two- or four-wheel-drive offered, the Ram 2500 and 3500 can be built to suit whatever job needs doing. Heck, Ram even offers a chassis cab version of the 3500 prepped and ready for aftermarket bed applications.
