How does the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty auto bear added torque than its rivals?
The addition of this all-new ancestors of trucks was banderole account at the contempo Detroit Auto Show. Back appropriately equipped, they action barter 1,000 pound-feet of tire-shredding twist, peaking at aloof 1,800 rpm on the tachometer. That’s a nice access compared to what battling models from Ford and GM can board appropriate now.
“To me, I anticipate it’s actual significant… It’s never been done in the barter market,” acclaimed Rod Romain, arch architect of the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty range. “This is a first; 1,000 pound-feet was a big barrier and it’s a lot of torque.”
For reference, Dearborn’s latest and greatest Power Achievement V8 agent is rated at 450 application and 935 pound-feet. The compression-ignition Duramax V8 in GM’s 2018 model-year able pickups delivers 445 horses and 910 torques. Ram is the aboriginal to devious into four-digit territory.

That abundance of aberration is provided by the alternative Cummins inline-six diesel, a allegorical powerplant offered, already more, in two potencies. Displacing a croaking 6.7-liters, in accepted anatomy it delivers 370 application and 850 pound-feet of torque, but in high-output guise, it’s rated 400 and 1,000, respectively.

“Torque moves the load, right?” said Romain, article that allows a appropriately able Ram Heavy Duty archetypal to tow up to 35,100 pounds.
Delivering that capability, engineers took a systems access to redesigning these new Ram pickups. “You aloof don’t put 1,000 pound-feet in a barter after alteration added things to go with it,” explained Romain. He said the transmission, alteration case, driveshaft, axle, frame, radiator, consecration system, and bankrupt accept all been added to accredit that four-digit torque figure. Even the front-end of these trucks was afflicted to board that output. “That’s why the grille is bigger. That was to basically go about the radiator that was bare to air-conditioned 1,000 pound-feet,” said Romain.
One of the best important enablers of that torque amount is a redesigned butt block. While the bore and achievement abide the aforementioned as in aftermost year’s Cummins, for 2019 it’s now casting of compacted graphite iron, an avant-garde actual that’s abundant added abiding than accepted iron. This metal is additionally bigger at attenuating babble and vibration, additional it allows for thinner, lighter castings with no abridgement in strength.
The admirable Cummins diesel’s butt arch has been redesigned, antic new bankrupt valves and upgraded rocker arms. This engine’s oil and baptize pumps accept additionally been redesigned, additional it’s been adapted with a aboriginal fuel-delivery system, one that operates at 29,000 psi (2,000 bar) for added achievement and efficiency.

On the bankrupt side, there’s a aboriginal assorted acknowledging a variable-geometry blower, admitting Romain said, “It’s absolutely the aforementioned turbo amid the accepted achievement and the aerial output, but the calibrations are altered amid the two applications.” It provides up to 33 pounds of boost.
Curiously, the compression ratios are altered amid these two flavors of Cummins engine. The accepted alternative squeezes air at a arrangement of 19-to-1, the higher-output one alone 16.2-to-1. Again, differences in arrangement acquiesce it to crank out added application and torque.
But don’t anticipate engineers skimped or cut corners with the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty’s “base” agent engine. “All of the allowances and all of the upgrades that are in a 1,000 pound-feet motor, those are in the 850 [as well],” explained Romain. This includes the adorned new block, added cooling system, bigger crankshaft and more.
The redesigned ambit of Ram Heavy Duty trucks is set to barrage in the additional division of the year. Back asked what his admired aspect is of these new pickups Romain said it’s the abundance and confidence. “You can drive this barter up through abundance passes and you’re at ease. Amid the auto arrangement and the torque that the agent provides and the sound-quality improvements through acoustic bottle and noise-cancelation, it’s aloof a absurd ride,” and one we attending advanced to experiencing aboriginal duke in the advancing months.
