Drivers have have relied on Ram Trucks for decades to handle even the toughest jobs. Pickup truck enthusiasts have another reason to be excited now about Ram Trucks now, because the 2016 Ram 3500 HD boasts 900 lb-ft of torque, which is absolutely unbelievable. We will be sharing all of the details that we have about this truck so far in this blog post.
Last year Ram announced that they would be increasing the horsepower on the 2015 Ram 3500 HD pickup truck significantly to 865 pound-feet. However, Ram has never been known as a brand that that rests on their laurels. Therefore, they have upped the ante once again by increasing the torque rating of the 2016 Ram 3500 HD to 900 pound-feet for 365 horsepower.
This incredible torque rating comes from the advanced 6.7-liter, inline-six, diesel powertrain that comes on the 2016 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty truck. This is not only the most powerful Ram Truck that has ever been produced, but it is also the most powerful mass production truck that has ever hit entered the production line.
The new 2016 Ram 3500 HD pickup truck is able to top the 2015 model by an amazing 35 pound-feet of torque, which is a significant increase. Ram was able to achieve this increased torque rating by adjustments that have been made to the fuel delivery and the turbo’s boost. Ram has also beefed up the durability of the rear axle on the 2016 model by holding it with 16 bolts now instead of 12.
