The 2015 Ram 3500 is mostly unchanged from the 2014 model, except for new power-folding mirrors, optional Ram Work Grade vinyl seats designed to be extra durable, and 15 extra lb-ft of torque (that’s 5 lb-ft more than the new ’15 Ford Power Stroke diesel). The optional 6.7L Cummins engine offers an impressive 385 hp and a massive 865 lb-ft of torque when it’s ordered with the heavy-duty Aisin AS69RC six-speed automatic, while models with the 68RFE six-speed auto get 370 hp and 800 lb-ft of torque (the same as the ’14 model). The Ram 3500 continues to be the only heavy-duty truck offered with a manual transmission, with the G56 six-speed allowed to row 350 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque from the Cummins. Gas-powered models get either a 5.7L Hemi V-8 with 383 hp and 400 lb-ft or a 6.4L Hemi V-8 with 410 hp and 429 lb-ft.
