You Make the Drive, We Make the Deal Here at Clark Crain Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram!

There's a fine line when it comes to conventional and heavy-duty trucks — most major brands that produce this body style craft both sides of the scale. Within the Ram brand, the line drawn between conventional and heavy-duty happens after the Ram 1500 and before the Ram 2500. At Clark Crain Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we hold both models inside our truck inventory. You've mostly heard or seen one or both trucks as you've traveled around Louisiana. With the Ram stamp of toughness marked on each, you may wonder what the difference is and how you decide which one you need.

Ram 1500: For the 2019 year, Ram came out with a whole new level of the classic 1500 model. The 2019 Ram 1500 tows more than before by leveraging the power of a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque that makes 12,750 pounds look like a walk in the park. For carrying purposes, there are 2,300 pounds to experiment with for what you load in the bed of your Ram 1500. When Ram created the latest version, it wanted more of a family-style truck, which was a success when examining the surplus of technology and safety features that come with it.

Ram 2500: As the starting model for the heavy-duty lineup, you should expect an increase in what you can achieve in the 2018 Ram 2500. It's the first truck where the 6.7-liter Cummins® Turbo Diesel comes out to play and work with a maximum 17,980 pounds of all-serious towing. The Ram 2500 nearly doubles the torque of the Ram 1500 with 800 pound-feet of it to support the load at hand. To get the highest payload level, you can look at the 3,990-pound payload-capable 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 - another powertrain option. With more of everything, you can ramp up your performance.

So, what do you need to tow? That's the main source of the dividing line between the Ram 1500 and Ram 2500: what each can pull behind it and carry in its cargo bed. Only you know what tasks lie ahead and only you can reach out and connect with one of the Ram professionals in St. Francisville, LA. Set up a time to engage in some truck talk today!
