Do These Changes Make Ram Better Than Ford And GM?

Ram reveals updates for 2016 models.

Ram has unveiled its 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty pickups for 2016, which come packing a number of upgrades the truck maker insists will keep its models ahead of Ford and GM’s offerings. The most significant change is to the 6.7-liter Cummins six-cylinder diesel engine, which continues to churn out 385 hp but now develops 900 lb-ft of torque, a 35 lb-ft increase. The Ram 3500 also boasts a stronger differential case, and models with the 11.8-inch axle now get a 16 bolt rear axle ring gear.

The result is improved maximum towing capacity of 14,156.6 kg, making it the leader in its class. In terms of styling, Ram has introduced a new Laramie Limited variant, which sports a new grille, unmissable RAM lettering on the tailgate, and an upscale interior that comes with black leather seats, wood and satin chrome trim, a new center console with tablet holder, and accent stitching. Set to go on sale later this year, the 2016 Ram 2500 and 3500 will come priced from $31,485.
