Ram & Cummins Celebrate 25 Legendary Years of Diesel Engineering

Posted 8/26/14

Dedicated to offering the best diesel engines available, the Ram and Cummins partnership has helped to make Ram trucks iconic. Ram first introduced a pickup truck powered by a Cummins diesel engine back in 1989. This engine was a 5.9L Cummins Turbo Diesel and it powered the Dodge Ram 3500 that was capable of 160 hp and 400 lb-ft of peak torque. Now 25 years later, the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel is available under the hoods of the 2014 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 pickup trucks. It delivers a best-in-class 850 lb-ft of peak torque and 385 hp.

Offering both a best-in-class towing capacity of 16,608 kg and best-in-class payload capacity of 3,320 kg for the 2014 Ram 3500, the 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine set these benchmark in its respective segment. Composed of a cast-iron head and with 30 to 40 percent fewer moving parts than competing powertrains, this engine was built to last. Its structure is a testament to Cummins durability, engineering, and attention to detail. It's also a testament to why truck drivers have relied on the partnership between Ram and Cummins to provide some of the best engines available for decades.

Advanced Systems Make the 2014 Ram 1500 More Fuel Efficient

Posted 8/10

 New for the 2014 Ram 1500 are cutting-edge technologies that help drivers save money at the pump without sacrificing performance. These systems work to reduce parasitic loads on the engine and complementary components. Overall, they work to reduce the amount of energy needed power them, which results in fuel savings for 2014 Ram 1500 drivers. 

One such technology that harnesses the principle of parasitic loss reduction is pulse-width modulation (PWM). PWM saves fuel by eliminating any unnecessary electrical load on the Ram 1500's alternator. Two other systems that use pulse-width modulation are the fuel delivery system and forward cooling fan. Since the electrical load is reduced comprehensively using PWM, less fuel is required to run the alternator and deliver power to every electrical system. Best of all, everything from the air conditioning to the infotainment system still function at optimal levels. The new Ram 1500 is efficiently engineered to help you save on fuel costs.

Exclusive Air Suspension Systems for Ram 2500 and 3500 Trucks Make Hauling Cargo Easier

Posted 6/25/14

The 2014 Ram 2500 and 3500 heavy-duty pickup trucks are designed to haul heavy payloads without compromising ride quality and handling. This is made possible by using a segment-exclusive air suspension system, which is now available for the new Ram 2500 and 3500 pickups. 

The air suspension system for the 2014 Ram 2500 replaces the five-link coil springs and uses a series of sensors to detect the load level on the rear suspension. To counteract that load and level the truck, air pressure is automatically increased. This improves overall stability, even when transporting a maximum payload of 8,138 kg for the new Ram 2500. 

The 2014 Ram 3500 also uses supplemental air bags for its exclusive air suspension system. These air bags take some of the load off of the leaf springs, which allows for more flexible suspension movement. When the new Ram 3500 is hauling heavy cargo or relying on its best-in-class towing capability up to 16,608 kg, the air bags in the rear suspension inflate automatically to accommodate the weight and maintain smooth ride.
