PostHeaderIcon The Best Truck For Moving A Big Christmas Haul

Imagine, for a second, a long-lost and filthy rich uncle invites your family over for Christmas. Under the tree is every imaginable gift to make up for his years of absence. (It’s a stretch, yeah, but play along.) The kids tear through the paper revealing massive gifts that somehow weight a ton. Now, how will you get these presents home? Well, luckily there are pickup trucks built to handle the load.

General Motors, Ford, and Ram’s offerings have all grown exponentially capable over the last decade, with some hauling and towing more than ever though possible. In many cases, a commercial driver’s license is needed to stay legal. Here, we’re going to focus on one-ton trucks with single-rear wheels and achieving the maximum payload capacity. So, if you’re needed a truck that can haul, this is for you.

Continue reading for more Christmas cheer and pickup specs.

3. Ram 3500HD


2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty - image 726141

4,140 pounds of payload

Coming in at third on our list is the Ram 3500HD Built as a regular cab and long bed, the single-rear wheeled Ram is capable of carrying 4,140 pounds in its bed. That’s pretty impressive when compared to a half-ton or even three-quarter ton truck, but doesn’t quite stack up to the one-ton competition.

Unlike the Ram 1500 and 2500 models with their multi-link and coil spring rear suspension setup, the 3500 uses a traditional leaf spring design. The thick leaf pack affords more weight tolerance, though at the compromise of unladen ride quality. Still, when it comes to moving heavy objects, the Ram 3500HD does a fine job. The Ram requires the larger gasoline engine option – the big 6.4-liter Hemi V-8. While you’d think the 6.7-liter Cummins inline-six would be the better choice for heavy hauling, the turbodiesel’s weight adds to the Ram’s overall curb weight and therefore directly drops the available payload capacity. It’s worth mentioning that by opting for the dual-rear wheels, the Ram 3500HD’s payload shoots up to 7,350 pounds – the most of three trucks with the dually option.

Prices for this particular 3500HD SRW with a 4,140-pound rating start at $33,790.

Read our full review on the 2018 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty.

2. Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD


2016 Chevrolet Silverado HD - image 648533

4,390 pounds of payload

The Chevy takes second place in this comparison, much like it does in the sales wars. Built as a 3500HD with the regular cab and eight-foot bed and powered by the 6.0-liter V-8 and with rear-wheel drive, the Silverado will haul 4,390 pounds in the bed. The Silverado also requires the 11,100-pound GVWR weight rating option to be selected. As with the Ram, the Silverado 3500HD with dual rear wheels is capable of hauling much more. In this case, it’s 7,153 pounds – again with the gasoline engine and rear-wheel drive.

Pricing for this specifically configured truck starts at $44,720 in the base WT trim. That’s a hefty increase over the Ram’s base price.

1. Ford F-350 Super Duty


2017 Ford Super Duty - image 648383

4,710 pounds of payload

Defying conventional wisdom of cab and bed configurations, reaching the maximum payload in the 2018 Ford Super Duty without dual-rear wheels requires the Super Cab and long bed configuration with 4WD. Set up this way, the F-350 will haul 4,710 pounds in its aluminum bed. The 6.2-liter V-8 and six-speed automatic transmission are required, along with the 11,500-pound GVWR.

Like the Silverado and Ram, the Ford Super Duty’s payload rating jumps significantly when adding the dual-rear-wheel option. In that case, the F-350 Super Duty will haul 7,630 pounds. That configuration requires the regular cab, long bed option with rear-wheel drive.

PostHeaderIcon Ram Shows Love For Tractors with Harvest Edition Trucks

Ram recently debuted a new line of special edition trucks at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois called the Harvest Edition. The package is available on the Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 in Quad, Crew, and Mega Cab configurations with all powertrains but the base V-6. Headlining the Harvest Edition are two paint colors: Case IH Red and New Holland Blue. Other upgrades include a one-inch increase in ride height on 1500 models, on/off-road tires, and other farm-ready accessories.

So, what’s the deal with Case and New Holland? Well, both tractor brands are owned by CNH Global – a holding company that also includes Fiat Industrial S.p.A. Ever notice how all the equipment seen in Ram media photos are Case? There’s your answer. (Too bad John Deere isn’t in the mix – that awesome shade of green would look great on a Ram.) Aside from the corporate affiliations and cross-marketing, the Harvest Edition Rams provide a real-life benefit for customers. Not only are the 1500s lifted one inch and come with meaty tires, all models have a specific list of options that cater to daily operations on a farm.

PostHeaderIcon Ram 3500 Heavy Duty

The current Ram Heavy Duty has been around since 2010 with an update in 2013 and smaller updates scattered throughout the years. Not much changes for 2018, save for one aspect: the Ram 3500’s 6.7-liter Cummins inline-six turbodiesel is getting a healthy bump in torque for class-leading numbers. Turbo boost limits were raised, fuel flow was increased, and a retuning of the ECU adds 30 pound-feet of torque for a total of 930 pound-feet. This surpasses both General Motors and Ford’s maximum torque ratings of 910 and 925 pound-feet, respectively.

This veritable arms race between the Big Three has been ongoing for several decades, but the Torque Wars have really heated up in the last decade. Diesels are popular and the biggest numbers win – both in power figures and towing capability. Ram isn’t short on either. The 2018 Ram 3500 also boasts a new fifth-wheel hitch assembly from Ram Engineering that offers 30,000 pounds of towing. Ram says its the hitch is strongest hitch in the industry. Customer can add the hitch for $1,395, either with a built-to-order truck or as a dealer add-on. The Ram’s gooseneck hitch rating remains unchanged at 31,210 pounds, while its receiver hitch can pull 20,000 pounds. Compare that to Ram 3500’s numbers from 2011. It could only pull 15,540 pounds with a gooseneck and 12,000 pounds at the receiver. Yep – the truck’s towing capabilities have nearly doubled in eight years. But towing and torque aren’t everything, so let’s have a deep look at the 2018 Ram Heavy Duty.

Continue reading for the full review.

PostHeaderIcon Holy Torque! The 2018 Ram 3500 Now Makes 930 Pound-Feet!

The Cummins-powered Ram 3500 will make a whopping 930 pound-feet of torque for the 2018 model year. That puts Ram in the lead of the unofficial Torque Wars raging between the Big Three. Ford and its Power Stroke turbodiesel previously held the lead with 925 pound-feet of torque and the GM twins aren’t far behind with the new-for-2017 Duramax and its 910 pound-feet. Ram also announced its new fifth-wheel hitch designed and built in-house. The beefy hitch, combined with the Cummins’ extra grunt, pushes the 3500’s max fifth-wheel tow rating to 30,000 pounds – another segment-leading figure. Ram’s gooseneck and conventional tow ratings remain unchanged at 31,210 and 20,000 pounds, respectively.

Ram says its engineers worked along side Cummins to enable the torque increase. Minimal changes were actually needed, and consist of a higher-flow fuel delivery system and giving the variable geometry turbo a higher boost limit. A retuning of the ECU is also highly likely. What Ram (or Ford or GM) doesn’t mention: any vehicle with a Gross Combined Weight Rating of 26,001 pounds or more requires the driver have a commercial driver’s license to legally operate on any public road. Hope you’re ready for a written skills evaluation, driving test, and drug testing, depending on your state’s laws.

The 2018 Ram Heavy Duty will begin arriving at dealerships this month. Customers can buy the new fifth-wheel hitch as a dealer add-on for $1,395. But beyond the extra power and new hitch, the Ram Heavy Duty doesn’t change for 2018. Ram is expected to debut the next-generation HD in 2020, which follows the new Ram 1500 in 2019. Stay tuned for our full review of the 2018 Ram Heavy Duty coming soon.

PostHeaderIcon Ram Trucks and FCA Donate $100k To Support Texas Flood Victims

Watch the news and there’s no missing the widespread flooding happening all across Texas. Reports say the flooding and flood warnings extend nearly 800 miles from southern Texas and into Missouri. Thousands have been affected and millions of dollars in damage have occurred. Worse yet, reports say at least 27 people have died and 13 are still missing. Needleless to say, it’s a tough situation.
