Ram claims highest-ever torque rating for a pickup

This truck brings the highest torque rating ever for a pickup truck - 930 lb-ft to be exact. Pricing for the newly-engineered hitch design is $1,395. Ram says it designed the new hitch to allow owners to haul trailers that previously would have required a Class 4 or Class 5 truck. The first 2018 Ram Heavy Duty pickup trucks will begin to roll off the production line this week.
