Next time some oldtimer tells you the glory days of horsepower and torque were in the past, sock ’em in the teeth with this: The 2019 Ram HD pickup now offers 1000 lb-ft of torque from its optional Cummins diesel engine. Yep, this is the first factory pickup to break the four-digit torque threshold. These are wild times.
Optioned with the new High Output diesel, the new heavy duty Rams can tow up to 35,100 lbs, with a 7680-lb max payload. A revamped air suspension can be set for payload, trailer towing, and can even drop the rear of the truck lower for easier bed loading and unloading.
The Ram HD lineup also brings the return of the Power Wagon, with a factory suspension lift, 35-inch tires, locking front and rear differentials and a 12,000-lb Warn winch. Meanwhile, the fantastically-named Mega Cab offers twice as much interior storage space as competing trucks, according to Ram.
So if you need to tow your house off its foundation, relocate Mount Rainier, or haul the Space Station down to the marina, congratulations: The new Ram HD is for you.
