2016 Ram Chassis Cab Offers PTO Options for Every Need
Gas or Diesel, Right or Left Side, 4x4 or 4x2
The needs of commercial truck owners are diverse, and there’s no such thing as “one size fits all.” To give its commercial customers the most options available, Ram is offering its Power Take-off (PTO) options in many different configurations to fit various needs. The PTO options on the Ram 3500, 4500, and 5500 are available with the 6.4L Hemi gas V-8 or the 6.7L Cummins I-6 turbodiesel. Ram claims best-in-class PTO power output at 60 hp. To save gas on the job, the 6.4L Hemi PTO option is able to operate in four-cylinder mode and still provide the needed output. Rated output for the engines are 370 hp at 4,600 rpm and 429 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, with the Cummins coming in at 325 hp at 2,400 rpm and 750 lb-ft at 1,500 rpm.
The PTO is available with right- or left-hand outputs and on both 4x2 and 4x4 models. Gross combined weight rating (GCWR) is 32,500 pounds on Ram 4500 with a towing capacity of 24,650 pounds. Ram 5500 is rated at 37,500 GCWR and 29,600 pounds towing.
Powertrain coverage is 5 years and 100,000 miles with the diesel and 5 years and 60,000 miles with the gas engine. Ram continues to be the only HD truck to offer an available manual transmission. Chassis cab models can also be ordered with a 74-gallon dual-fuel tank option. A nationwide network of 950 commercial specialist dealers supports Ram Truck commercial offerings.
