Ram 1,000 lbs Torque

Ram just announced the new 6.7 Cummins has 1,000 lbs of torque. I wonder how much torque the 2020 Superduty will have?

1005 for the 2020 Super Duty.

As always, the Ram HO version is only available on DRW models.

And does/will Dodge limit engine torque in the lower gears in a manner similar to Ford’s 6.7 + 6R140?

I would say yes to keep the drivetrain intact!!

I do think it is kind of dumb to offer multiple power levels, but you can get the HO with a 3500 SRW AISIN. You do get penalized heavily because of the added weight of the AISIN vs 68rfe, but it can be done.

The 1000 ft lb torque number has been a target for a long time. Wonder how long until we see 1500 ft lb. Glad to see the competition. Now ford get off your asses.

A cool milestone but more power than anyone will ever need for a pickup.

They surely will limit torque in the lower gears...no truck in this class needs 1,000 lbs of torque in the first couple gears.

Wonder if Ford has any torque limitations with the frame they use vs the Dodge frame (which is what helps give the Ram a towing/payload advantage)?

Love the truck wars...the customer wins as the big corporations battle it out for supremacy!

Yes, but how do you keep the rest of a Dodge intact . . .

1000 lb T is only attractive because of what it implies. But the difference between Ford 935 and 1000 is not only negligible, but 1000 plays and looks better, better eye candy, that's it. That said the Ram PowerWagon is rated at 35,000 towing. It's a game and it for bragging rights. About the most I have ever towed has been 16-18 thousand lbs and that was some years back with my 2011 Dually, forgot how much torque that engine had but on the trip form Phoenix to San Antonio I was driving 65-70 with no issues. Does my '19 F350 do it better? It's mostly subjective but yes it appears to be easier and stronger and maybe I get a bit better MPG due to the extra torque as compared to my '11 or even my '15, but it's measured in .1 tenths.


That said I am a fighter and a winner, so Ford get in the race and let's win!

I got a good chuckle out of this!! Reminds me of a 2003 Dodge we had in the fleet.

1500 ft lbs. would put it in Class 8 territory-13-16 liter diesels, 1500 is commonplace for those, and many are up at the 1800-2000ft lbs range with HP between 450-600. Lots of twist there for sure. It's quite amazing that modern day pickups are putting out more torque and hp than 60's era semi's did.

Modern P/U trucks have 1/2 the engine size but now about 2/3 of the torque and about 80% (close average depending on truck) of the HP.

Modern day diesels are built to last millions of miles and have a frame and transmission that are a magnitude stronger than today's P/U trucks.

I an agreeing with your statement..I just hope that as we hit these 1,000 ft lb milestones reliability and longevity are still somehow maintained.

If I can't get the hauling job done at 450 hp and 935 ft/lbs torque in my F-350, I probably need to call United Van Lines/Atlas to come get it or make two trips...
