"Ram maintains capability leadership by delivering the highest-ever torque rating for a pickup truck and heaviest fifth-wheel trailer towing capacity", said Mike Manley, head of Fiat Chrysler's Jeep and Ram brands, said in the release. Pricing for the newly-engineered hitch design is $1,395. With 930 lb-ft of torque, the crown is returned to the Cummins faithful.

About Ram Truck Brand Since its launch as a stand-alone division in 2009, the Ram Truck brand has steadily emerged as an industry leader with America's longest-lasting line of pickups.

With the scrutiny on the diesel market, it is great to see that a manufacturer is still able to out numbers like this. Just think of all the things you can pull now thanks to that extra 5 lb-ft of torque. Although the current Ram 3500 has a maximum towing capacity of 31,210lbs with the gooseneck connection, the 5th wheel setup for the current truck has a limit of 25,000lbs, forcing buyers to make some changes if they wanted to tow to the fullest potential with that style receiver.

Pictures are fine, but we want to see what this hitch can really do.

Look for the 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty to hit dealerships this month.
