Ram Trucks is on a quest to make the most capable cars in this segment, and while it’s not official they do, their Ram 3500 Heavy Duty pickup can tow a 30,000-pound trailer capacity, which is frankly astonishing. The closest opponent is limited to a 23,100-pound.

The 3500 HD is powered by n upgraded 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine with a best-in-class 850 lb.-ft. of torque, but that is not the only feature giving it such amazing capabilities. It also features 50,000 pounds-per-square-inch, high-strength steel frame, improved transfer case, and higher-load transmission.

Another number Ram 3500 can boast is its Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) — which is defined by the maximum combined weight of the truck, payload and trailer. That is 37,600 pounds, which again is greater then its closest competitor’s 30,500-pound.

It’s not just the 3500 model that is an overpower in this segment. The Ram 2500 and Chassis Cab trucks also deliver best-in-class towing and GCW numbers.

“We built the new 2013 Ram Heavy Duty to be the undisputed Heavy Duty ‘King of the Road.’ These new rigs deliver on the number one key attribute most critical to these customers: uncompromising capability,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO — Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC. “Towing capability, reliability and engine performance are ranked first through third, respectively, with HD customers. The 2013 Ram Heavy Duty trucks unequivocally deliver all those things, as well as a very low total cost of ownership.”
