6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel Towing Capacity

The 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel motor is another winner in the power and capability department. This motor uses turbo technology and its sizeable internal displacement area to produce an astounding 850 pound to fee tof torque from its 350 horsepower output. The Cummins Turbo Diesel motor has no problem in the hauling department either because it can carry up to 3,160 pounds in its robust rear hauling bed.

The new RAM 2500 uses a six-speed electronic transmission to control the power output from the Cummins motor which allows for healthy power while also minimizing stress and noise. 

Tough Internal Designs Make Towing with the RAM 2500 Easier

When properly outfitted, the new RAM 2500 full-size pickup truck has an outstanding towing capacity of 19,680 pounds. It has two competent motors that help to make this possible, but also includes many unseen design factors that are necessary parts of the team. The new RAM 2500 internal frame is just one such factor.

This frame spans the length and breadth of the vehicle and it uses light but durable aluminum and specially strengthened steel as primary building materials. The result is a frame that is not only durable but is also tough enough to support the tremendous hauling and towing loads expected of this vehicle.

Benefit From Thoughtful RAM 2500 Towing Technologies

The RAM 2500 offers high-tech towing tools that can boost safety and capability. An example is a proprietary Trailer Reverse Guidance system. It projects clear views of the rear of the truck onto the high-resolution touchscreen, and this allows operators to hitch their vehicles without any problems. It also has a specialized split view function that lets drivers see both sides of their trailers for maximum safety. 

Another similar technology that makes hitching easier is the Auto Leveling Rear Air Suspension system. It can seamlessly shift balance levels in the suspension, thus making it easier to line up hitches and receivers.
