2015 Ram 3500 Tops Ford with 865-lb-ft Max Torque Rating

Brand Reiterates J2807 Compliance, Increased Payload

Edward A. SanchezAug 22, 2014
The ongoing slugfest of truck brands to claim the most power, torque, payload, etc., has caused some of us to say “stop the madness!” but others to say “bring it on!” When Ford threw down class-leading power and torque figures of 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of torque for the 2015 Power Stroke 6.7L V-8, we figured it was only a matter of time until that figure was trumped. Well, that day has come. Thanks to some engine management calibrations, Ram engineers have coaxed another 15 lb-ft of torque out of the 6.7L Cummins I-6, bringing the torque total to 865 lb-ft. Horsepower remains 385 at 2,800 rpm.
Ram also reiterated the fact that it’s the only truck brand that complies with the SAE J2807 standards across its lineup, including the HD models. In addition to the colossal torque output for the 2015 Cummins, the maximum payload rating for the 2015 Ram 3500 has been increased to 7,390 pounds, as well as an updated combined GCWR of 37,900 pounds.
Ford recently claimed a non-J2807 compliant maximum tow rating for the 2015 F-450, a point alluded to in the Ram release by saying the torque rating on the 2015 models as “edging out even Class-4 pickup competitors.”
