Comparing Ram 5500 Engines

When you’re hoping to get a powerful vehicle to handle every job that comes your way, the Ram 5500 is your go-to truck. A standard 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine will generate 410 horsepower paired up with 429 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped with this engine, you can tow up to 21,540 pounds.

If you’re wondering if that’s enough power, look to the available and class-exclusive 6.7L Cummins® Turbo Diesel I-6 engine. It generates a best-in-class horsepower of 360 paired up with a massive 800 lb-ft of torque. This engine also enables you to operate at two different speeds through the Split-Shaft Mode.

When properly equipped, the Ram 5500 will tow more than 35,000 pounds to tackle any haul without blinking. It carries a maximum payload of 12,510 pounds for less trips and more weight.

Easy Fleet Monitoring

Business owners will be pleased by the available Ram Telematics™ system. It allows you to monitor your fleet of vehicles in real time, so you can tell the level of efficiency and productivity you’re getting from your drivers. You’ll be able to better determine what may be working and what may need a few tweaks.

Investigating Upfits for the Cab

Your Chassis Cab can be rigged with an upfit that’s suitable for your line of work. Whether you work in construction or landscaping, there’s an upfit that meshes with your specific needs. We can also accommodate industry professionals in the fields of agriculture, delivery and catering, electrical, HVAC, and plumbing. See what may be ideal to get your business off the ground.

If You Use a Trailer

Planning to use a trailer for your work? The Ram 5500 can add a line of trailer-savvy tools to upgrade your tows. By installing the available Trailer Camera Wiring system, cameras stationed in perfect view of your trailer will keep an eye on it. To back out with a trailer attached, the class-exclusive Trailer Reverse Guidance upgrade aids you when you need it.

Get Extra Safety Support

With a heavy-duty truck like this, you’re going to want extra safety support during your hauls. Available systems like Forward Collision Warning make you aware of potential accidents, while the available Automatic Emergency Braking can stop you when the system senses you may be headed for a crash.

To stay with the flow of traffic and maintain a safe distance from vehicles in front of you, the optional Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop supplies you with that security.

If you add the class-exclusive ParkSense® Front and Rear Park Assist System, it uses carefully placed sensors to help you park, no matter the size of the spot.
