2014 Dodge Ram Heavy Duty
Ram Heavy Duty
Ram Motortruck stigma offers the nigh able heavy-duty pickups in the section – the 2014 Ram Large Responsibility occupation features a inclination of best-in-class titles in the section’s first leverage intellect, capacity:
Pricing for the new 2014 Ram 2500 Lowering Tariff starts at $29,600, addition $1,095 address. The 6.4-liter HEMI pick is priced $1,495 greater than a likewise weaponed 5.7-liter HEMI-powered Ram Great Obligation pick-me-up and is the get-go gas locomotive uncommitted in the twofold arse roll 3500.
Ram 2500 and 3500 Large Tariff trucks likewise add new initiation, including an all-new, 5-link whorl dangling with optional air abatement on Ram 2500 and a subsidiary air bag dangling selection on Ram 3500.
Heavy-duty trucks mostly suffer abeyance equipt for never-ending, gravid payloads. This can resolution in a harsher rag when unloaded. Ram creation leads again for 2014. The new Ram 2500 takes lessons well-educated from the Ram 1500 and adds an all-new, section sole five-link helix back suspension for best-in-class rally and treatment and new air suspension.
2014 Ram Heavy Duty
The sole five-link whorl pattern provides punter voice complete obstacles than a flick leap organization and the rich gyre springs are more capable the labor of manipulation the heaps requisite of a Enceinte Responsibility Ram 2500 – capable 17,940 pounds for towing.
The 2014 Ram 2500 too leave go a section single back air suspension. An air bag replaces the whorl bound practically care the Ram 1500. Loading capacitance is not sacrificed and the 2014 Ram 2500’s best-in-class tantalise and manipulation gets fifty-fifty ameliorate, suppression the contest with two doses of technology instauration (five-link whorl touchstone and air abeyance choice). Another gain to the new air respite pattern is the load-leveling capableness, which mechanically detects lading on the bottom dangling from a laggard or load. The pressure increases until the fomite reaches convention bait acme, grading the motortruck, up constancy and blotto rally.
The Ram 3500 volition extend to have the bum Hotchkiss foliage give scheme on the Ram 3500 but testament now fling a subsidiary air suspension on SRW and DRW applications. By adding auxiliary air bags to the bum hiatus, Ram engineers were capable to damp the flick springs, allowing for more unladed abeyance cause. When a high-load capability consideration exists, the air hanging mechanically fills the behind air bags to grade the motortruck to ameliorate stableness and razz timbre – tied pull a best-in-class 30,000-lb. loading.
In the breast, the Ram Lowering Tariff cable features an forward-looking three-link movement abatement to ascertain paradiddle rigour. Greater paradiddle harshness, a.k.a. trunk cast, is an authoritative feature in taller vehicles and specially trucks with enceinte payloads. Paradiddle rigorousness is mensural by the come the motortruck’s eubstance tips side-to-side, severally of the wheels, during cornering.
For 2014 Ram 2500 offers gooseneck (center-positioned testis in the bed) or deadwood potentiality. Ram is unmatchable in damage of oblation the near over ‘incumbrance ‘n go’ towing preparation parcel establish anyplace in the heavy-duty class. Additionally, Ram features an in-box connecter conjunction, and a touchstone Category 4 and 5 recipient interference with a four-spot or 7 pin connective on the bumper.
Ram offers two dissimilar three-fold alternator systems on the 2014 Ram Large Tariff providing extra superpower for higher electric lashings from commercial-grade fomite upfits and accessories. New for 2014, Ram Expectant Tariff models equipt with the Cummins 6.7-liter diesel volition crack three-fold 220-amp alternators (best-in-class 440 amps). Both the Ram 2500 and 3500 weaponed with the new 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 gas locomotive likewise bequeath fling a dual-alternator arrangement – the outset gas-driven lotion of its sort in either grade – that combines 220- and 160-amp units for 380-amps of totality best-in-class outturn.
Although the Ram Superpower Waggon benefits from the new five-link ass dangling, it besides receives a unparalleled forepart suspension to keep its leaders in off-road capacity. The limited battlefront three-link organization incorporates high-movement links, allowing for extra flexibleness and axle articulatio. The 2014 Index Waggon besides is powered by the all-new 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 locomotive, contributory to Ram Ability Waggon’s entitle: the about subject yield off-road motortruck in the manufacture.
With Chrysler Radical’s all-new 6.4-liter HEMI V-8, the 2014 Ram Lowering Obligation leave birth to best-in-class hp and best-in-class torsion among pickups with gas engines.
Engineered to return capableness, enduringness and bam for the clam, the largest deracination V-8 in its course provides a suitable gas-powered pick to the section’s boilersuit standard-bearer – the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel.
Compelling numbers separate the report of the new 16-valve locomotive with 410 h.p. (306 kW) at 5,600 rpm and a eyeshade torsion paygrade of 429 lb.-ft. (582 N&dogshit;m), at 4,000 rpm.
One of the enablers for such operation is an combat-ready dual-runner-length uptake multiply optimized specifically for the Ram Great Responsibility card. The resultant is improved low-end torsion without sacrificing high-end superpower.
The fabled HEMI architecture provides the introduction of the 90-degree V-8. But its innovative engineering is definitely innovative. Cooled exhaust-gas recirculation (CEGR), variable-valve timing (VVT) and Chrysler Grouping’s stylemark Fire Rescuer cylinder-deactivation engineering all add to efficiency and avail to capitalise on every three-dimensional in.
The new 6.4-liter HEMI is stock on the 66RFE six-speed robotlike transmittal.
Early locomotive options admit the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, measure equipment for the Ram 2500 and 3500 (SRW). The locomotive produces 383 hp at 5,600 rpm and generates visor torsion of 400 lb.-ft. at 4,000 rpm. The 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 is paired to a 66RFE six-speed machinelike transmittance.
Magisterial the torsion charts, the famed 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel I-6 is usable in deuce-ace versions. The outset edition is mated with Ram’s section sole six-speed manual contagion, which features a wear-compensating hold for lifespan like-new operation and a dual-trunion sack pillar to fit a squeeze switch figure. This compounding delivers 350 h.p. at 2,800 rpm and 660 lb.-ft. of torsion at 1,400 rpm. The indorsement pick matches the Cummins to the 68RFE six-speed robotlike transmitting. The diesel cranks out 370 hp at 2,800 rpm with an unexcelled in ¾-ton trucks 800 lb.-ft. of torsion at 1,600 rpm.
