If you're interested in using the 2014 Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups for rugged, heavy-duty tasks over long periods of time, you can't go wrong with the 6.7L Cummins I-6 Turbo Diesel engine. This powertrain is the ultimate in Ram diesel capability and its specifications feature best-in-class torque, towing, and oil-change intervals. Let's have a closer look at what this diesel engine can do.
Output Capabilities for the 6.7L Cummins I-6 Turbo Diesel
One of the most interesting features for this diesel engine is that total power and torque depends on which transmission it's mated to.
- G56 Manual Six-Speed Overdrive Transmission: No matter which gear you're in, this transmission synchronizes them all for optimum shift points. With this transmission equipped, the Cummins I-6 Turbo Diesel puts out 350 hp and 660 lb.-ft. of peak torque.
- 68RFE Automatic Six-Speed Transmission: Using three planetary gear-sets, one overrunning clutch, and full electronic control, this transmission unlocks even more Ram diesel capability. When the 68RFE Automatic is mated to the Cummins Turbo Diesel, it receives a 370 hp rating and an 800 lb.-ft. torque rating.
- AISIN AS69RC Automatic Six-Speed Transmission: Available only with the 2014 Ram 3500 6.7L Cummins I-6 Turbo Diesel engine, this transmission features higher gear ratios for increased towing capacity and increased performance output. This engine is capable of 385 hp and a whopping 850 lb.-ft. of torque when mated to the AISIN AS69RC Automatic.
Diesel Braking Technology and Oil Change Intervals
When driving down steep slopes while towing heavy cargo, the 6.7L Cummins I-6 Turbo Diesel engine uses enhanced diesel braking technology to control the vehicle's descent electronically. This requires no driver input and can help increase brake life. Regular maintenance is not a problem with this powertrain either because it boasts an oil-change interval of 24,000 km, which saves you time and money.
