Last year’s Cummins-powered Ram 3500 (below) put out 350 hp at 3,000 rpm and 650 lb-ft at 1,500 rpm for a towing capacity of 22,500 pounds with its 3.73:1 gearing. Even though we filled the cab with four people and the bed with all of our son’s belongings, and flat-towed his Baja Bug to college, we were still short of maxing out the ’11 Ram by 19,700 pounds! We probably could’ve moved our entire household (and house!) and still not maxed out this rig! Of course, since this is America, plenty is never enough. So, for 2012, Ram and Cummins have upped the ante.
