The first 2016 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty with the 900-pound-foot (torque) Cummins diesel engine has rolled off the line: a Laramie Longhorn Mega Cab.

All 2016 Ram 3500 “duallies” (having four rear wheels, two on each side) with a Cummins diesel and Aisin automatic transmission can tow 30,000 pounds or more, using SAE J2807 criteria.

The 2016 Ram 3500 regular-cab rear-drive model holds the pickup towing capability title at 31,210 pounds. Ram 3500 Heavy Dutys also are payload-hauling champs at 7,390 pounds.
