Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen GM and Ford make some big strides towards achieving close to 1,000 torque, but they both felt just a tad short. Ram, with their 5th generation heavy duty trucks, partnered with a newly designed 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, have shattered the 1000 ft/lb threshold. Don’t forget, unlike Ford and GM trucks, Cummins horsepower and torque numbers can be different between trim levels. Only the 2019 Ram 3500 equipped with the Aisin transmission is capable of 1,000 torque. Even with that being said, the 6.7L platform as a whole, received some significant changes!
